The structure – the wheel, the cycle – supported by Dragon Dreaming to recognize and consider everyone’s needs.
The project cycle follows natural processes of arising (winter-spring), being (summer) and change (autumn-winter).
Projects develop into a living and learning system.
The method shows how it is possible to build a team based on mutual trust and support.
Teams, groups, organizations learn to use “dreams” and “dragons” (resistances and conflicts) for project design and come to completely new results in creative ways.
Successful, sustainable projects are created in an organic and playful way, through which everyone involved identifies with the project, can effectively bring in their different qualities and needs, and successfully implement the idea.
In contrast to conventional project management
Dragon Dreaming is a playful and effective method that combines all aspects of project development in a fascinating and holistic way.
Project development with Dragon Dreaming is based on the four phases: dreaming, planning, acting and celebrating.
Knowing and using these qualities helps teams and projects to design them holistically and to grow organically.

- Companies that want to build a new, holistic corporate culture that includes based on the knowledge and motivation of

- For groups who want to contribute to social change with their projects.

- giving up your own values.
