Tentacular Dreaming is a movement-based participatory research method. It draws upon collective conscious dreaming practices as well as contemporary neuroscience, linking the ability to dream with the capacity for empathy. Using a modular set of somatic tasks and guidelines, the method applies dreaming principles to collective embodied experiences, setting the stage for letting go of patterns and for rehearsing alternative narratives for more response-able futures.
