Personal dreams carry a level of communal, or tribal, meaning that reveals the soul of the "tribe." In The Community Dream: Awaking the Christian Tribal Consciousness, Pat Brockman, PhD, tells stories arising from her research in four intentional communities. What she learned can be applied to any intentional group, whether it is a Friday night poker club, a corporate structure, or a family reunion. Dreams are a window into the "soul" of a group, shedding light on its complications and potential for transformation as well as on how individuals function within it.
Brockman's work moves inductively through four community experiences to an understanding of the communal dream process. According to Henry Reed, often called the father of modern dreamwork, she presents "'spiritual politics' at its finest, actually bringing spirit into the design of the body politic. Brockman is a masterful modern-day shaman, and her story will be an inspiration to any intentional community, including America itself!"
Both the stories and Brockman's analysis affirm a deeply human way of knowing, all but lost to contemporary society. International spiritual leader Richard Rohr, OFM concludes that "This ability to know, to know deeply, has led our last century untold horror. This little bit of genius from Pat Brockman offers.... profound possibilities, some ways through, and an always available Spirit."
