The DreamSpace Experience
DreamSpace™ is an immersive experience where participants engage the brilliance of their dreams and imagination to co-create the lives they truly want.
An immersion integrates “eyes-open” activities, involving creative expression, with “eyes-closed” activities, such as meditative visioning and nighttime dreaming. Our holistic process for engaging the imagination through both the waking and dreaming states helps each participant tune into what his or her soul really wants, unleashing a wellspring of creativity and passion.
By weaving together the participants’ dreams and imaginings, the group produces a shared vision that inspires and guides them. The experience of engaging and sharing their inner brilliance builds the trust, skills and collective intelligence necessary to evolve the vision and collaboratively bring the vision to life.
A dream you dream alone is only a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality.
– John Lennon
DreamSpace offers both onsite and online events for organizations and communities. In our new project, called Vibrant Planet, we are extending the DreamSpace experience to global community of online participants. For more, please go to Events.
At an early age, Anthony began recognizing the visionary brilliance of his dreaming mind – which eventually inspired him to devote decades of his life to mentoring with indigenous spiritual elders and studying human consciousness. He produced award-winning cultural and environmental multimedia. While serving as the president of two tech companies, he directed multidisciplinary teams in producing educational software. As a University professor, Anthony taught interactive multimedia design, production and ethics. In 2008, he launched Imaginariums – group dreaming and creative visioning events. Today, Anthony oversees the development of DreamSpace™ immersive events.

The Future of DreamSpace
We are improving the DreamSpace experience by developing events and applications that will help take our offerings to a whole new level. Because the future is so exciting, we want to share a little peek:
Phase 1: Participate in an immersive DreamSpace event, conducted at your location or online. [currently available].
Phase 2: Participate in a global immersive DreamSpace event, includes interactive virtual worlds and immersive media custom created by artist(s) and engineer(s) using DreamSpace prototype software platform. [in process, prototype expected 2017]
Phase 3: Design your own dream world-experience using the DreamSpace Software App, which also allows you to selectively share your content with remote users who may view, interact with or interconnect to your dream. [release expected 2018]
Advancing your co-creative capacity is becoming increasingly important in today’s world. Organizations are developing more agile, creative and collaborative environments that are necessary for what Forbes calls the new “imagination economy.” DreamSpace helps you build the skills you need to participate in the imagination economy and to build a better life for yourself and others.
We all have a responsibility to tap into our dreams and imagination. Pressing planetary and social challenges call for non-linear solutions…solutions that draw upon our collective creativity. DreamSpace addresses these challenges by harnessing the greatest resource we have – the infinite potential of the human spirit, imagination and dreams.
