When we find we are attending a party in a dream, we are often alerted to our social skills – or lack of them.

In waking life we may be shy and dislike such gatherings, but in dreams if we are coping with the groups involved, we have a greater awareness of our own ability to belong and to take enjoyment from that.

To belong to a political party would indicate that we are prepared to stand up for our beliefs, that we have made a commitment to a particular way of life.
