    The Design Process

    Dragon Dreaming is built on a win-win-win culture. A win for ourselves personally, a win for the community and a win for the Earth. 
    Dreaming: The first stage is to share your dream and build a team around it that assists in making the dream come true.
    Planning: The second stage is to build a plan: people do not plan to fail, they only fail to plan.
    Doing: The third stage is where much of the work occurs.
    Celebrating: The fourth stage of a successful project is celebration. This connects the doing of a project back to the original dreaming. It is built upon gratitude, acknowledgement and recognition.

    The Introductory Weekend Workshop consists of a total of 20 hours of training, typically spread over a Friday evening (6pm-10pm), a Saturday (9am-7pm) and a Sunday (9am-4pm). The schedule of each day might be adjusted slightly as needed.

    Learn by doing! Participants will be invited to team up on a project and go through all the stage of Dragon Dreaming: Dreaming, Planning, Doing and Celebrating.
