Dragon Dreaming: How to Go from Dreaming to Results

A Brief History

Geographer John Croft based Dragon Dreaming on the principles of systems thinking and the wisdom of the Australian Aborigines. The method brings together holistic aspects that have long been ignored or separated in our cultures: our right and left brain hemispheres, logic and intuition, man and environment, theory and practice, thought and action, work, and play, success, and failure

  • Personal growth — striving for one’s own healing and empowerment;
  • Community building — strengthening the communities of which you are a part;
  • Service to the Earth — enhancing the well-being and prosperity of all living things.
