dreamXchange - guided sessions
is starting its first semi-public program during the months of November 2023 to February 2024.
Four artists, researchers, healers, tricksters or mythical figures are invited to guide the participants through a 2-3 hour session loosely based on the structure of the regular dream sharing sessions and the speaker's own approach to social dreaming and (collective) dream work.
5 November 2023, 7 - 10pm CET
an introduction to dreamwork – its methods and cosmologies – from the experience of a trainee, transpersonal psychotherapist. Bea will be drawing on case studies from peer-to-peer clinical work throughout their final year on the CCPE diploma: involving elemental magic, symbol association, energy tracking and the embodiment of a 7-year-long saga of shadow work. After the talk, there will be an experimental group activity, where attendees are invited to constellate tori of frequencies by associating with congruent ‘emotional tones’ from our dreams.
is a Chinese-British world-builder, ritualist and psychic worker based in London. Using collaborative play, speculative fiction and therapeutic intervention they design and means-test integral, post-capitalist cosmologies with live participants and fellow LARPers. Bea's work can be seen as a narrative engagement with archetypal shadow – often foregrounding blood magic, decolonized time and non-binary logic with an EcoGothic focus.
Welcome to the
, a role play game set in a collective dream build from the collected dreams of the players and attending public. The players build the dungeon through free association and enter it through improvised directing, enacting and discussing of scenes. On the 29/30 September the doors of the dungeon will be open to the public in the flexible function of spect/actors while the group of practiced players will move the action forward.
︎︎︎Train your mind
in dream recall and
submit your dream

Au JUS is a project space in St.Gilles/ Brussels. It is run as collective process and play. Au JUS researches and rehearses deviant forms of being (together)in temporary realities and sensuous simulations. It offers a training ground for embodied experience of social imaginaries and the speculative remodeling of infrastructures. Au JUS self-organizes through monthly gatherings, in which its members experiment with changing rules, scores and stories that define what is happening in the space. Au JUS is sustained by different kinds of members that contribute with varying degrees of money and time (to be discussed). Like the space itself your role can shift over time. Please, send back the
before the last day of August and join us for our next gathering in which new members may sign a fictional (but legally binding) contract to become member of our ASBL 'au JUS' which is also a collective worlding device.
Dream Dungeon is a Role Play Game that lets you (re)enter and explore a collective dreamscape. Connecting and merging the different dream locations in a growing underground architecture, it provides a place for a fictional tale to unfold through free association. Players may choose a character that has appeared in any of the shared dreams to follow and find out more about their desires, fears, and questions. In the dream dungeon, the individual dreamer dissolves in a trip of transindividual memory and reflection.

Emotional Futures is an extended reality game challenging you to extract and account for your emotional labor in the fictional currencies Blood, Sweat, and Tears, produced and valorized in interaction and relation to other players. Prompting you to evaluate and reflect on the conditioning of subjectivity and sociality through standardized models of emotion, it also may open potential pathways to change the game and move beyond its map...
