About The Event
This workshop is hosted by Korean Cultural Centre UK
A small discussion about Bongsu Park's DREAM AUCTION I DREAM RITUAL project and dream writing workshop with Hazel Riley.
DREAM AUCTION I DREAM RITUAL project is 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 _ Vol.1' at Wellcome Collection's Reading Room on 2nd April 2019, the next one will be held at Korean Cultural Centre in UK on 31st May. This series of workshops will be 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.
