Dreaming of being with a group of people shows how there are different parts of us that must gain consensus when we are exploring a new direction. At times these other characters challenge us to explore what we are doing before making a change. At other times, these characters can represent our needs in some way - helping us to recognize their importance through the symbolism. If the group is more like a crowd - the dream can be exploring how you are following others and not taking the authentic path. See also People and Crowd.
