John Croft has assisted individuals and organizations in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Australia, Africa, Canada, USA, Eastern and Western Europe to develop over 1500 successful projects that are good for the Earth and build communities.
When Rob Hopkins wanted to start Transition Towns, he had John facilitate a Dragon Dreaming workshop, and the result was an amazingly successful Dragon Dreaming project that has impacted millions of people and hundreds of cities all over the planet.
Dragon Dreaming helps individuals develop successful projects for the Great Turning by using the power of dreaming and vision. During the four project stages – Dreaming, Planning, Doing and Celebration a playful approach is used in order to access the collective wisdom, engage and diminish burnout of the team. Inspired by Deep Ecology, The Work That Reconnects by Johanna Macy, wisdom of Australian aboriginal people and by modern Systems Theory, the process places a high value to personal growth, resulting in empowered people, and outrageously successful projects.
All who seek to “awaken” – lead a meaningful life – or make a difference will benefit from this transformational workshop. No matter whether you are involved in your community or not, whether you are already engaged in personal or collective projects, or are only tentatively dreaming about an idea, Dragon Dreaming can help. help.
Discover how to dance with you dragons and make 100% of your dreams come true! This is John’s only workshop this year in Canada.
$200 per person. Limited seating. For more information, or to register, call 250-770-7668, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.osarts.com
