I’m Kate Alderton, an independent dream researcher with a background in the arts, ever curious about finding ways to soften the borders between waking and dreaming, and passionate about opening up spaces where we can re-ignite the ancient art of dreaming in community again.

We used to dream together..

Dreaming with others helps voice the whispering at the edges of the heart. Helps cup the ears to the dreaming soil beneath our feet and hear its calls to action. Helps us smuggle treasures from the dream spaces and weave them in impossible ways back into waking reality.

Dreaming can be a complimentary map to waking reality, illuminating some of the fainter road markings as we walk past the edges of the known.

I’ve attended dream trainings with Arnold and Amy Mindell, The Centre For Social Dreaming and with world-renowned dreamer Formica Coriandolo from the eco artistic dreaming community of Damanhur

My areas of interest are:

  • Dream incubation
  • Dream chambers
  • Social Dreaming Matrix’s
  • Working with the dreambody
  • Dreaming as a creative ally

“Dreams are born of the individual, become fuel for the matrix and provide meaning for all” Gordon Lawrence

I’ll be hosting Social Dreaming Matrix’s throughout the year with my partner in dream Tim Arnold, creating spaces where dreams can speak directly to each other, where we focus on the dreams rather than the dreamer to discover how our shared dreaming can forge links and connections and offer new ways of thinking.

As well as a dreamer, I’m an actress and producer with The Mycelium Theatre and am ever curious about how to keep drawing from the abundant landscape of the dream states to be more creative in waking life.
