Examples of Dream Sociometry

Examples of Dream Sociometry

Here are the templates for creating your own Dream Sociomatrices, Dream Sociograms and Commentaries.

The texts, Dream Sociometry and Understanding the Dream Sociogram refer to a number of examples of Dream Sociomatrices, accompanying Commentaries and Dream Sociograms. They are included here in addition to some other examples that are not referred to in those texts. Due to the age of these samples, some of the Dream Sociomatrices, Sociograms and Commentaries are missing, due to the fact that they are in file formats no one has figured out how to open. I will add these as I can.

Dreamage

(A rewrite of the dream based on a consensus of dream group member recommendations.  If there is no consensus, there can be no dreamage. A synthesis group dream is usually its own dreamage.
