In September 2009 the Centre for Socio-Analysis, based in Melbourne, sponsored a six day Conference with a primary task: “To Explore the Heart of Dreaming”. The exploration used the Social Dreaming methodology pioneered by Gordon Lawrence and developed in Australia since 1989 (see, for example, Lawrence, 1991, 1997 and 2003). The Conference took place in the dry riverbed of the Sandover River at Soapy Bore, Utopia, Northern Territory. Soapy Bore is approximately 350 km North East of Alice Springs, and is the home of an Alyawarre Aboriginal Australian community of about 100 people. Twelve people from Hobart, Sydney, Melbourne, and London took part in the Conference and such was the power of the experience it was decided to write a book about it.
