'Most of the time I'm a tiger in my dreams If I dream with animals. I can't exactly remember what the purpose of that tiger is. Most of the time it's just there to protect something or somebody. Sometimes the tiger comes when I need to have answer for something or when I need to accomplish something but I'm not sure how to do it. I don't talk in my dreams as a tiger, I tell everything through my eyes . The times when I realise that I'm not a human anymore when the perspective changes, like when I look up to somebody, and the person is suddenly taller than me, when in reality we are the same height. I don't need to change however into a tiger - I'm a tiger, I've been all along... that's it. This realisation is not scary at all, it's more calming if anything. It's amazing to feel flexible, the cage of your body and bone-prison dissappears and I feel finally free. Thoughts are simpler, emotions are simpler when I'm in this state. When I'm the tiger, there's nothing to cover up what you feel as human - everything becomes clearer when I'm a tiger. You don't need words, you realise what you wanted all along, what's your calling - I'm never by myself as tiger, I am there to be the strength of someone, or was that me that needed the my own tiger self?'

WORKSHOPS & DISCUSSIONS
Dream and Dreaming - their place in our lives
We are running a series of talks, discussions and workshops in lot of different contexts around the themes of dream. After our first workshop ‘Dream and Dreaming - their place in our lives’ at Wellcome Collection’s Reading Room on 2nd April 2019, the second one was held at Korean Cultural Centre in UK on 31st May. This series of workshops run by the project director Bongsu Park and Hazel Riley - an author, teacher and shamanic practitioner.
During the workshop we will talk about the project and the specific Korean culture of buying and selling dreams. Also we will share our ideas about dreams from many perspectives – dream related traditional customs to neuroscience and psychology. Alongside the dream contributions through our project website, people can contribute their dreams off-line at the end of workshop.
