A conference holds the symbolism of a group meeting together to achieve a consensus either of opinion or action.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To find ourselves at a conference suggests that we need to ensure that all aspects of our personality are in agreement.
Material aspects: Conferring signifies a bringing together of perhaps differing opinions to reach a sense of common ownership. In everyday terms this image will arise when such a consensus is important to progress.
The image of a conference can also come up when we find ourselves at odds with the majority.
