LinkedIn APAC’s Dream Big Inday 2022 – Zoom Workshop

Such a pleasure to host Introduction to Dreamwork, an online dream workshop for LinkedIn APAC’s Dream Big Inday.

The workshop was attended by 50 participants located in Singapore, Sydney and Bangalore. We talked about the impact of dreaming on mental health and trauma, learning, problem solving and creativity.

Thanks for being such a wonderfully engaging and enthusiastic crowd!

Feedback from participants:

‘Such an interesting topic and love the fact that it was very interactive.’

‘It was a very insightful workshop.’

‘Dreaming is (hopefully) part of your life, so it’s nice to know more about what they mean and how you can get insights from them and apply to your waking life.’

‘Very to-the-point and engaging.’

‘It was a really important session in my opinion. I would love to have this featured in other Indays like one on mental health etc. I can’t wait another year for something like this.’

Dream campaign ‘Stop Dreaming and Go’ with Tourism New Zealand

May 2021

I had the pleasure of partnering with Tourism New Zealand to launch their first international campaign ‘Stop Dreaming and Go’ that translates dreams in relation to travel. 

It has been interesting to note the evolution of our dreams throughout the pandemic. Initially we were experiencing more stressful dream themes such as running from danger and being attacked by bugs which have since transitioned to dream themes that signify a need to escape reality, a need for a break and a strong desire to seek out adventure and new experiences.

Partnering with TNZ has not only helped to provide a presence and awareness to these themes but also a means to act on these dreams.

Body + Soul Magazine – Crazy dreams during lockdown? This is what they mean

May 2020

Awesome to chat about our dreams in lockdown with Kara from body+soul magazine.

Below are some snippets from our conversation, read the full interview here.

“During times of collective crisis, feelings of stress, anxiety and uncertainty can cause mixed sleep-wake states as the subconscious attempts to process our heightened thoughts, emotions and experiences which can trigger lucidity,” says Kocian.

“This can be an empowering experience if the dream has nightmarish qualities,” she explains. “We discover we have the power to fend off an opponent (or virus!) or break rules without consequences.”
