THE RED BOOK OF C.G. JUNG: CREATION OF A NEW COSMOLOGY

 

April 11 - June 6, 2010
This spring the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, presents The Red Book of C. G. Jung: Creation of a New Cosmology, an exhibition of preeminent psychologist Carl Gustav Jung’s (1875-1961) famous Red Book, thought to be the most influential unpublished work in the history of psychology by many contemporary scholars. Jung also considered the Red Book to be his most important work, or as he described it, the “prima materia for a lifetime’s work.” Until now, however, the book has spent most of its existence in a Swiss safe deposit box, and very few people have actually seen it. This exhibition, organized by the Rubin Museum in New York, includes works of art and archival materials on loan from the Foundation of the Works of C. G. Jung, the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, the C. G. Jung Foundation for Analytical Psychology, the Jung family private archive, and other private collections. The show is the first public presentation of the remarkable book and it coincides with the publication of a facsimile edition of the Red Book by W. W. Norton & Company. The Hammer is the only West Coast venue for the exhibition and the presentation will also include an important series of public programs to further explore the work of C. G. Jung and his legacy.

The event occurs from April 11 through June 6 2010. Visit the website for details.

Don't miss these free public programs.

 SUSAN BENSON, Ph.D. (AUSTRALIA)
I have been a member of IASD for over 10 years. I attended my first IASD conference in 2000 in Washington DC. Since then I have attended conferences in Berkeley, Montreal and Chicago, and presented at both Montreal and Chicago. I took up the role of IASD Regional Representative for Australia in 2006.

My association with IASD has been personally and professionally enriching. I have found the increasing capacity of IASD to function as an international hub for exchange of information, knowledge, research and education to be exciting. If chosen to be on the Board, my focus would be on expanding opportunities for regional contact. I am also interested in training and standards of certification for dreamwork.

My own background as academic, researcher and counselor is multi-layered, as is IASD. I have served at senior management level in a national academic research centre, as well as fulfilled a leadership role for several not-for-profit community groups. In my current work as educator, researcher, writer, I am passionate about exploring creative processes through dreams, stories, myths and imagery.

RYAN HURD (USA)
I am a dream educator living in California, and author of "Sleep Paralysis: A Dreamer's Guide." I also am the founder and editor of DreamStudies.org, a consciousness studies portal. My research interests can be found in a heap at the intersection of anthropology, ecology, and spirituality. I have a MA in Consciousness Studies from John F. Kennedy University (2008), and a BA in Anthropology (1998).

I've been a member of the IASD since 2004. Since then, I've attended every annual conference, and presented at most as well. For the last two years I have served as the Cultural Track Chair for the Conference Committee. I'm excited for the chance to serve the IASD.

If elected, I can employ my knowledge of Internet marketing and technology trends to help with expanding our reach globally. Mostly I intend to listen to our members, who have a complex array of needs and hopes for the IASD's future.

BARBARA ROUKEMA-KONING, Ph.D. (NETHERLANDS)
I have been working for 21 years as an assistant professor in the field of Psychology of Religion. In 2008 I quit my job in order to become a student at the Haden Institute (North Carolina, US) for their course in Jungian Psychology called Dream Leadership Training. I recently got my certificate there. It is my next aim to develop programs for dream groups with some target groups, maybe Spiritual Directors, married (or long term) couples, and/or chronically ill people.

I became a member of IASD in fall 2006. As an active member of the Dutch Association for the Study of Dreams (VSD) I can contribute to IASD's worldwide mission in several ways. At this moment I am the Chair of the Editorial Board of the Dutch quarterly Dream Journal and also I was elected, in November 2009, as the President of VSD. In the current Board of the VSD we highly value the importance of IASD for all our Dream Work in the Netherlands. We strive to make the relationship between the two organizations as vital and fruitful as possible. Recently the IASD ethics statement was translated, which we will offer to our members and after their agreement will be put on our website. Also members of the Board (myself included), are hosting the 2011 IASD-conference in our country. I hope to keep on learning more about IASD in order to perform my duties as a Board member well and to assist IASD's mission.

MOHAMED OMAR SALEM, M.D.
(UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, UAE)


I am an assistant professor in psychiatry, researcher and clinician at the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences of the United Arab Emirates University. So far, I had 4 research projects on dreams and 2 review articles. In teaching, I was able to introduce topics on dreams in the undergraduate curriculum of psychiatry in our school of Medicine, and I am trying to promote it in the area. My other interests include CBT, philosophical and cultural aspects of psychiatry

I joined IASD in 2007 and currently I am the Middle East Regional Representative. I prepared the Arabic version of the Multilingual International Gateway of IASD, and I contribute to the Annual Meetings regularly. In 2008 I had a poster presentation and in 2009 I had an oral presentation for the hot off the press section. This year I am presenting my 3rd research project. I have been conducting regular regional workshops on the various aspects of dreams over the last 3 years, covering Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Dubai, Al Ain, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. I was able to recruit some new membership from the area and from outside. I am looking for extensive collaboration between IASD and across the main academic Centers of the Middle East.
________________________________________
SCOTT SPARROW, Ed.D. (USA)
When I was 19, I had my first of many lucid "high" dreams. In 1974, I did my master's thesis on lucid dreaming, and in 1983 I completed a doctoral dissertation at William and Mary on using dream reliving as a lucid dream induction strategy. In between, I wrote Lucid Dreaming: Dawning of the Clear Light (A.R.E., 1976), which explores the spiritual dimensions of lucid dreaming. After becoming licensed in 1982, I began to develop the Five Star Method. I have just coauthored a paper on this method (J. of Creativity in Mental Health, in press). As a professor, I incorporate dream work training into all of my graduate counseling courses. I have recently founded DreamStar Institute, which offers certification in dream analysis, and I am currently exploring dream reliving and middle-of-the-night meditation as a treatment for distressing nightmares.

I became a member of IASD in 2006 in time to attend my first annual symposium. Since then, I have presented seven workshops/presentations at IASD annual conferences, and one paper at the 2009 IASD PsiberDreaming Conference.

I am deeply interested in the mission and continuing work of the IASD. I believe it is the only organization truly devoted to a multidisciplinary study of dreams. Consequently, IASD offers its members an array of cross-fertilizing influences, the sum total of which conveys a sense of true community to those who are willing to acknowledge that dreams are much bigger than any theory or method.

MISA TSURUTA (JAPAN)


I joined IASD in 2004 that coincided with the year I entered the doctoral program in clinical psychology at the New School for Social Research in New York. My first conference was in Copenhagen where I came to appreciate this open, warm, and welcoming community.

Since then, I presented at international conferences and regional conferences. The themes I presented include dreaming in Japan, dance/movement and dreams, and pregnancy dreams. Currently I work as a counselor and a dance teacher in Tokyo.

At IASD I am involved in Global Advisory Committee, Educational Committee, and Research Committee and am a reviewer of Cultural/Anthropological Track of the Asheville 2010 conference. My recent focus is to establish a local dreamers' community n Japan. I would like to contribute to international promotion of IASD.

KATJA VALLI, Ph.D. (FINLAND)

I started to conduct dream research in the late 90's, I'm currently working as a post-doctoral researcher investigating the neural correlates of dream consciousness. My main research interests are the biological function of sleep and dreaming, alterations of dream consciousness in different sleep disorders, and dream content in general, and have published several internationally peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on these topics. I also review papers for for several international journals, such as Dreaming and Consciousness and Cognition, and I'm a consulting editor for the International Journal of Dream Research.

I attended my first IASD conference in 2000 as a presenter, and became a member a few years later. Since then, I have attended almost every annual international conference, and a couple of regionals. Due to my experience in research, I have been a member of the Research Grant Committee for the past three years. For the last three years, I have also served as a Board member.

In developing IASD functions, my largest interests lie in drawing scientists and researchers to IASD, and in building a bridge between research and other approaches to dreaming. Thus far, the steps taken towards reaching these goals include reviving the IASD Research Committee, and serving as a Chair of the committee. If I am re-elected, I will continue these activities, and learn more about how things work in IASD in order to perform my duties as a Board member as well as possible.

NOTHING COULD BE FINER
THAN TO BE IN CAROLINA

… this summer at the 27th annual IASD conference, Sunday, June 27th through Thursday, July 1st, 2010, Crowne Plaza Resort, Asheville, North Carolina

Opening night you will be treated to some ancient stories about the dreams of indigenous cultures by Terry Shinn, a local Western North Carolina storyteller. Some of Terry’s stories are thousands of years old. They come from elders and teachers and medicine people. Terry presents at powwows and other ceremonies and at schools in a teaching and storytelling capacity.

Following storytelling, Dr. Lee Irwin, Professor and Chair of the Religious Studies Department at the College of Charleston, South Carolina, will present his keynote address. He will offer a realistic look at the Cherokee people, who have lived in Western North Carolina for many hundreds of years. As a result of colonization, the Cherokee no longer practice the “old ways” of dream interpretation. Dr. Irwin will challenge us to view the Cherokee as a poignant example of our struggle to legitimize and value dreams in support of community.

Of course, topping off the evening, will be a gala “pool party” reception.

So arrive early. You don’t want to miss one minute of what promises to be a rich and fulfilling dream week in “Carolina.”



Art entry deadline approaching!

Kim Vergil, curator of this year’s juried art exhibition, wants to remind all artists that the deadline for entries is April 23rd. Nancy Richter Brzeski has generously contributed $3000 in support of monetary prizes to be awarded for the best dream-inspired art. The first prize winner will receive $1000. Many submissions, including those of the winner, will be on display for three days during the conference. Winners will be announced at a gallery reception Tuesday evening, during a special art reception. Full details about the exhibition and entry requirements are on the website: http://www.asdreams.org/2010/artshow.htm

IASD MEMBERS IN THE MEDIA

Please let us know about your fifteen minutes of fame. Contact the Dream News at jacquie@asdreams.org

Robert Gongloff's book, Dream Exploration: A New Approach has been translated into Russian and published in Russia by Ves Publishing. Robert is the host of this year's annual conference in Asheville, North Carolina.

Nova Science has published a new book, Perchance to Dream: The Frontiers of Dream Psychology , edited by Stanley Krippner and Debbie Joffe Ellis. This book is part of Nova's Psychology Research Progress Series, which features such varied topics as childhood and adolescence, and suicide and the creative arts -- all from a scientific perspective. Members of IASD will be familiar with several of the chapter contributors such as Fariba Bogzaran (on lucid dreaming), Daniel Deslauriers (on transcultural strategies), William Domhoff (on gender differences in dreams), Jacquie Lewis (on animal content in dreams), Jayne Gackenbach (on video game play), Robert Hoss (on color content in dreams), Clara Hill (on dreams in counseling and psychotherapy), and Stanley Krippner (on dreamlife and chaos theory). Each chapter is introduced by a colorful painting by Fariba Bogzaran; the front and back covers portray paintings by the noted Canadian surrealist artist Robert Vanderhorst. The book is dedicated to Albert Ellis, Debbie Joffe Ellis' late husband and a close personal friend of Stanley Krippner.

Dr. Stanley Krippner and Dr. Debbie Ellis presented a workshop at the Transpersonal Development Institute in Puebla, Mexico that included a section on dreamwork. The title of the workshop was "The Myth of Perfectionism" and was held on March 20 and 21. Discovering personal myths and irrational beliefs through dreams was illustrated using adaptations of the dream definition technique and the dream appreciation method.

Dr. Michael Schredl conducted a study which involved over 2,000 participants who reported their bad dreams. Men are more likely to dream of violence or being fired from their job. Women dreamed more often of sexual harassment, the death of a loved one or losing hair or teeth. Both genders had dreams of failing exams.

SPOTLIGHT on SCOTT SPARROW

Perhaps you’ve noticed that I put out the call for someone to assume the position of Membership Chair for some time, and until now, without success. But, it’s been worth the wait as we’ve found Dr. Scott Sparrow who has generously agreed to take on this important and really lively committee of IASD. Scott has been affirmed by the Executive Committee and the Board at the March IASD Board meeting. He is already working with me in an apprentice capacity and he will be installed as Chair at the June Membership Meeting of the annual Conference. WELCOME SCOTT! Please welcome and get to know Scott Sparrow as he now introduces himself:

“I am very pleased to have been appointed to chair the Membership committee! Jody has done such a fine job for all of us, and I will endeavor to carry on her groundbreaking work. As for my own background, I have been writing about lucid dreaming and dream analysis since I was in my 20s, and working with dreams as a therapist for almost 30 years. As a basically postmodern kind of guy, I am interested in the full spectrum of dream inquiry--from laboratory research, to Jungian analysis, to purely phenomenological inquiry. Since I believe that IASD is the only organization truly devoted to a full-spectrum study of dreams, I am deeply interested in its mission and continuing work. The IASD is truly a "big tent" and it has an important role in today's world. I am honored to be a part of it.”

You can also get to know Scott by going to the IASD website membership pages where you’ll find him engaged in his favorite activity, other than dreams. Besides what Scott tells you about himself in this column and his IASD membership page, I’d like to add that he offers his skills as a writer and his experience working with online activities and outreach for IASD, in addition to his other qualifications.

I can’t help repeating myself: I have thoroughly enjoyed being your Membership Chair for almost five years and have relished the growth in many aspects of our IASD membership, particularly in the sense of community that has developed through the work of the Regional Representatives network.

Please feel free to contact me, Scott Sparrow or Jeff Vovillia, at any time with membership questions or concerns. We always welcome new volunteers. You are the future leaders of IASD and we want your energy, help and visions.

INTERNATIONAL GATEWAY TO IASD: NEWS!!

We are delighted to bring to your attention some news of an upcoming event on the French Gateway of our website. You will find announced “en francais” the IASD Regional Conference in Montreal: “Colloque Regional IASD-Quebec: Reve et Conscience. Montreal,Quebec, 10 Avril, 2010.” This Regional Conference will be presented in French.

You may also find the announcement in English on the main page of the IASD website. It is exciting to see how the language gateway may evolve into more than a welcome door: we hope it will be used in the future for translations of papers, event announcements and more.

Congratulations and thanks to our Canadian members who are hosting this conference and encouraging greater participation in IASD and dreamwork by offering this program in French for French speakers.

REGIONAL REPRESENTATIVES - CHANGES
Wendy Pannier has moved from Greater Philadelphia, PA to Cincinnati, OH so she will no longer be the Regional Rep for this part of Pennsylvania. It is our good fortune and good timing that Gail Friend who lives in the same region of PA will be our new Rep for the same area.

Thanks Wendy and welcome Gail Friend!

REGIONAL ACTIVITIES AT THE 2010 CONFERENCE IN NC
Each year at the annual IASD Conference we arrange several lunches for networking with one another in ways that build our personal connections and strengthen our dream community. These meetings have generated opportunities for Regional events and meetings. Several of our best Regional Events have been spawned in this way.

We will facilitate networking again this year in two ways:

1) A working lunch for the Regional Reps who are at the conference

2) A general membership lunch for all conference attendees to meet at regional tables and connect to others from their geographic area. Our “at large” Reps will meet with those who don’t have a Rep or are in a region without other IASD members.

Besides imagining and creating your costume for the dream ball in the next couple of months, consider planning ahead for these Regional lunch opportunities: dream and create ideas for future regional meetings, conferences, and developments. Bring them to the common tables! We look forward to seeing you there.

If you do not have a Regional Rep for your area, consider becoming a Rep yourself! You are the dream connector you and we have been waiting for.

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF A BEAUTIFUL DREAMER—SHIRLEY COBURN
By Rita Dwyer 

Those of us who worked and played with Shirl during her years of active involvement with IASD were saddened to hear of her death on March 7 after a long bout with Alzheimer’s. Released from her illness, her spirit survives and continues to inspire us. Look for her in your dreams. If anyone could make afterlife contact, she’s IT!

While participating in a weekly dream group with Gayle Delaney, Shirl learned of IASD and attended the 1988 conference in Santa Cruz, CA with her soul mate and adventure-loving husband, Chuck. In following years, we were gifted with her boundless moon mother energies, creative talents, business experience, “people” skills, and love of dreams and dreamwork. Besides organizing our first of many successful auctions, she served as an IASD Director, Treasurer and Chair of the Board and hosted numerous board and regional meetings with Chuck at their home in Lafayette, CA. Who of us will forget long hours spent planning IASD’s future ventures, followed by a great dinner and late-light soaks in their huge hot-tub next to the backyard pool?

Their home reflected their interests and was a showcase of mementoes of their worldwide travels to exotic places, where they sought to learn more about metaphysics, shamanistic practices and states of consciousness. What they learned often found its way into rich presentations and workshops at our conferences. Their adventures are related in three books that Chuck has published. Shirl’s biggest IASD triumph was hosting our best-ever attended conference at the castle-like Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, CA. At the closing Dream Ball, she literally jumped up and down with joy at its success.

INVITATIONS: Chuck has extended an open invitation to a grand celebration of her life at the Hillside Clubhouse, Diablo Room, in Rossmoor, Walnut Creek CA, on April 17th, from 11:30 am-2:30 pm.

IASD plans to send a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association in Shirl’s memory. For those of you who wish to remember Shirl and add your support to this worthy cause, a special link has been made to facilitate that process: http://shirlcoburn.kintera.org 

All funds collected will be sent by IASD to the Alzheimer’s Association and are tax-deductible.

MAKING AN ESTATE GIFT TO IASD
The Quiet Campaign continues at http://iasdheritagefund.org/  With little fanfare, IASD continues to seek members and supporters who will remember IASD in their estates to assist our mission of dream education, research and outreach. Click on the link and think of how you can support dreaming, education and IASD's future.
