1. What is a mutual dream?
The most generic definition is, "Something in my dream corresponds to
something in your dream." The two classic mutual dreams are meeting and
meshing. In a meeting dream event, I see you and you see me. For meshing dreams,
we share themes, emotions or symbols; or the wording of our dream reports is
quite similar. You dream of gazing in rapture at the night sky; I dream of being
surprised to see the stars after I switch off the light.
2. Where can I find information about mutual dreams?
The most detailed source is *Mutual Dreaming* by Linda Lane Magallon (New
York: PocketBooks, 1997). The book can be ordered at any of the on-line book
stores (like www.amazon.com). Linda spent 15 years researching the field and
facilitating intentional co-dreaming projects. The book covers spontaneous and
intentional mutual dreaming, and includes lucid and non-lucid examples. An
appendix in the back of the book lists references and examples that can be found
in other books. Further information can be found at

3. Where can I share my own mutual dream examples or find co-dreaming
There is no bulletin board or mailing list that specializes in mutual dreams,
only. You might post your dreams at the alt.dreams and alt.dreams.lucid
newsgroups and ask for a response. The two mailing lists that are currently open
to discussion and activity are listed below. People join, start talking about
the subject and then suggest a dream-together project.
The Intuition Network sponsors a list managed by DreamGate called email@example.com
The participants on this list share dreams, have weekly dream incubation
projects, mutual dreaming projects and occasional psi and telepathy dream

4. What are group mutual dreaming projects and where can I join them?
Group dreaming projects often have a facilitator who chooses a goal and then
requests people to deliberately incubate dreams about the goal.
A meshing goal is an invitation to dream together about a topic or theme. For
example, the February 1998 goal of the *Interactive Dreaming* site was Dreams,
Teach Me New Depths of My Believed
A meeting goal is an invitation to meet in the dreamspace. There is no
ongoing place for group meetings, but results from past projects have been
posted at the *Fly-By-Night Club* web site.
