projects come into existence that are playful,
organic, sustainable, and successful. Dragon Dreaming is a process with new rules of the game: jointly developing the win-win culture and abandoning the comfortably familiar negative patterns. If while doing that we get to face the “dragon” within and sincerely connect to other people, then the things we never dared to dream about can become reality.
To fulfill these dreams we organize the workshops and summer camp for families, various possibilities and occasions to learn and experience Dragon Dreaming as well as Permaculture, and so to create strong synergies for sustainable projects and supporting friendships.

Dragon Dreaming is a practical system composed of various methods and procedures for integration of the intuitive and emotional powers into everyday life.
Basics of Dragon Dreaming: To go through the processes playfully in successful projects
Introduction Workshop Germany/ Slovenia
The workshop is designed for everyone who wants to learn and experience Dragon Dreaming. In this workshop we will present the Dragon Dreaming processes.
We will give you the first insights into the theory and practice of the “Circle of Dreams” and show you the game’s plan (project plan). The participants will learn how to maintain the joy and energy of all the participants in the projects, as well as why some projects fail and
what makes some projects successful. With that there are always possibilities to explore one’s own dream project and experience how it sounds like when somebody dreams our own dream (project idea) and how our own dream is delivered in charismatic means of communication.

“Permaculture under the Dragon’s patronage”: together we dream and plan, together we work and celebrate.
How does Dragon Dreaming looks like practically? We will go through the processes of Dragon Dreaming during this workshop: we will form a group of many colors, develop meaningful tasks that bring us joy and are useful at the same time for ourselves, the group, and the environment. The ground of all our efforts will be the holiday spirit!
Adults, children, families, and all the priers are invited to dream with us in
those lively days. We have dreamed about these days being learning through the game: building an outside wood-fired oven, making an indian sauna or composting box, preparing a bed or helping with field harvest, organizing a wild festival for the entire place and making a day out of a night by sharing dreams laying in hammocks near the fireplace, making improvements to the old mansion… Who knows what comes out of the dreams of children and adults?

Additional information on our workshops
the places In Germany the workshops will take place in Steyerberg near Hannover. Please see more information at: www.lebensgarten.de. In Slovenia the workshops will take place on the estate of Podgrad near Vransko in central Slovenia, only 5 minutes from the Ljubljana-Celje motorway. 20 ha estate with an old mansion and large agricultural building which is in the process of being adopted into a permacultural development and educational center. Simple accommodation is available in 6 rooms that are currently in use. In case you need more comfort there is a youth hostel in the vicinity. In the mansion and in front of the mansion – in shadow of the 250 years old linden tree there is place for work and other activities and passivities. Sleeping, cooking, and rest will be organized depending on the mood of the group, the weather, and the final form of our environment will be shaped by our flashes of creativity. In case of overheating the real blessing will be the spring and a pool directly aside the mansion. We are invited to Croatia to the traditional Summer Camp in the ecovillage of Latinovac. After the Introductory Dragon Dreaming Workshop with Marijano Gršak that will take place 29-30 of July, the yesteryear Circle of Dreams will be continued when we will lead the Latinovac Permacultural Planning Workshop under Dragon’s patronage titled Creating Eco-village Development Strategy from 1 to 4 August. Please see www.latinovac.org. In Montenegro we will lead the workshop in Kotor on a beautiful beech over the Tivat. The small little house in the idilic surroundings of the mediterainian hills has turned to be most inspiring during our previous years’ workshops. www.kavac.org
