About us

The Dragon Dreaming Institute is a training organisation, founded to support Entrepreneurs and Change-Makers with the Dragon Dreaming method, based on a mindful culture.

Dragon Dreaming is an open source method spreading around the world and first developed by John Croft and Vivienne Elanta. After having established the international platform as a decentral community movement www.dragondreaming.org, now the Dragon Dreaming Institute becomes true, where Entrepreneurs and Social-Innovators come together and get empowered for finding community based entrepreneurial solutions to these immense challenges we are confronted with as a modern society.

An effective method building bridges between consciousness work and project development. It helps us to express our authentic self and support a value based community while serving higher principles through developing successful, innovative and meaningful projects.

It is a method supporting us to find simple solutions while facing complex challenges.

Angel Hernandez - DDI Founder & DD Teacher Trainer

A question that drives him: What kind of structures do we need to support personal growth?

Learning organisational models are Angel's passion. Originally trained as an engineer he has thoroughly studied and courageously experimented with methods to develop individual and collective potential for more than 10 years.
His experience reaches from organisational development to the practice of mindfulness of indigenous tribes. The essence of his work as Dragon Dreaming Teacher Trainer is in the approach of the DDI, where he combines ancient knowledge with modern approach and tools.
