VENUE  The Conference will be held on the campus of Sonoma State University, a small residential California State university located an hour north of San Francisco in the warm wine country of Sonoma County.  Earth, sea, and agriculture are kind to the county, producing world-class wineries, artisan cheeses, fresh fish, and wonderful restaurants highlighting seasonal local food.  The campus is a gracefully landscaped 269 acres, with small lake, butterfly gardens, and an outdoor labyrinth modeled on the Chartres labyrinth in France expected to be built in the spring of 2007.  The conference facilities center around the Cooperage, a 500 person conference venue, and the adjoining Sauvignon Village, a set of new apartments with air conditioned four bedroom apartment suites featuring a common kitchen and living room and high-speed internet access.  All meals are offered in the light, airy campus dining facility, which offers good food for all nutritional orientations, vegan included.  Extra campus amenities, usable at an extra daily charge, are the campus swimming pool; tennis courts; and recreation center with weight room, climbing wall, and indoor track. 

TRANSPORTATION from San Francisco and Oakland Airports is available using Airport Express buses that run every 60 to 90 minutes depending on the time of day.  See the IASD conference Web site for details and contact numbers for local travel options and alternative local hotel information. 

THE CONFERENCE Join dreamers, clinicians, researchers, educators and artists from all over the world for four days of workshops, lectures, exhibits, and events examining dreaming and dreamwork as presented through traditional and innovative theories and therapies, personal study, scientific research, cultural and spiritual traditions, and the arts.  Over 100 workshops and events on all aspects of dreaming are planned, with topics and events of interest to the general public as well as professionals.  Special events include an opening reception, a dream arts exhibit, a special wine tasting at the lake, an evening dream incubation and ritual at the Chartres-pattern outdoor labyrinth, a dream telepathy contest,  and the ever popular closing costume Dream Ball. 

PRE-CONFERENCE SESSIONS NEW THIS YEAR:  If you would like intensive training in skills or knowledge related to dreams, we are offering three morning and three afternoon pre-conference workshops.  Go to the Program and Schedule  for detailed information. You may register for either the morning or afternoon, or both and attend any of the sessions available at those times. If you have already registered for the main conference, or have not made up your mind on pre-conference, you may come back later and add the pre-conference.

CE CREDIT  The conference offers Continuing Education credit for selected sessions for psychologists, M.F.T. therapists, social workers, and other health professionals. The International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists.
