Acting out key dream situations to reexperience them emotionally and energy-wise, and sometimes to re-enact resolutions to dream issues.

This is how you can do it:

•  Do Objectifying and Following the Dream Ego
•  Create an effective attitude and action for the dream ego to use in resolving a key issue
•  Use a director to direct dream group members to enact in simplified form for ten minutes the dream scene
•  Reenact again for ten minutes but first asking what the dreamer would like to change in action and attitude
•  The director enhances the drama as necessary during the process, going for resolution
•  The dreamer gives his or her experience followed by each person involved or watching also speaking
•  How does the enactment resolve the issues?
