Resumè of the exercise
Dream-Travel is to be used at the beginning of a work programme. It can be before brainstorm or another session, where people have to be creative.

It gives the instructor the opportunity to help the group focus on a future task.

When working with a large or boisterous group, Dream Travel can be used to calm the group down before the session starts.

The Dream-Travel is an exercise, where the participants lay on the floor with their eyes closed and listen to an instructor. The instructor takes the group on a small journey to nice places and nice landscapes. During the trip, the participants are asked to think about issues related to the tasks that will take place after the Dream Travel.

After finishing the Dream-Travel it is important to have an energetic activity to help the group ‘wake up’ again before work continues.
