IASD LAUNCHES YOUTUBE CHANNEL



This month there's something new from IASD online!

Four stunning videos, created by Tamara Gurbis of Phenomenal Films will open the IASD YouTube Channel . Click on the link to find YouTube videos of IASD greats Patricia Garfield, Stephen LaBerge, Robert J. Hoss, and Mark Blagrove speaking on dreams, consciousness, and IASD itself. Thanks to Tamara and to IASD webmaster Richard Wilkerson for bringing us this exciting new IASD feature.

Although there are several videos currently available on the IASD YouTube Channel, we will be "branding the channel" over the next few months: customizing the background; adding video content; and possibly adding a Google Moderator, which solicits ideas and questions on any topic from viewers and the channel's community.

For the purpose of testing out the popularity of this new channel--which will offer only top-quality information on video about dreams--we request that when you visit the IASD YouTube Channel, you take a moment to subscribe to the channel by clicking on the Subscribe link. And we also request that you SHARE IASD's YouTube Channel with your friends.

Together we can promote dream education in the true spirit of IASD.

DREAMING THE MUSE:
DREAM NEWS CREATIVE CORNER

Some Questions You Might Ask After Mary Oliver
By Tzivia Gover

What if this is the dream
and real life happens when you’re asleep?
Why do I remember so many dreams each night
but I can’t remember where I left my keys?
Why don’t I have dreams in which I meet Salome
and find ancient skulls in crypt-like depths, as Jung did?
Instead I dream of searching — night after night –
for a bathroom stall with a clean seat.
Why do people always ask if I dream in color?
And what do dolphins dream about?
What if Freud was right?
How many other people’s dreams have I appeared in?
And what was I wearing?
When you reach Nirvana, do you still dream?
And why is it called a nightmare
and not a nightstallion — or steed?
What if the dream needs
the dreamer the way God need our prayers?
And did you have a good night’s sleep?
Tell me, what did you dream?


HAVE YOUR DREAMS WORKED AT THE IASD CONFERENCE
Christa Lancaster and Marc Bregman of North of Eden will be offering a workshop to present Archetypal Dreamwork at the annual IASD conference, June 27 – July 1, 2010, Asheville, NC.

CALL FOR PAPERS: EDUCATION TRACK

IASD members, Curt Hoffman and Jacquie Lewis are now accepting chapter proposals for a book on dreams and education. The working title is Weaving Dreams into the Classroom: Dreaming in Education. The emphasis of the book will be to encourage educators, at all levels, to integrate dreams and dreamwork into their coursework.

They encourage dream educators, from elementary through college, to submit a chapter abstract on how dreams are integrated into their course(s). Dream studies chapters from practically any academic field will be considered.

Please submit a chapter abstract and a brief bio by July 15, 2010 to Curt Hoffman at teximus@comcast.net Please also distribute this call for chapters to other dream educators who may be interested. Once a book outline is established a publisher will be pursued. For questions please contact Curt.


ATTENTION: 2010 CONFERENCE RESEARCH TRACK PRESENTERS

This year IASD will try out something that has not been done before, and that is the publication of Research Track abstracts in the International Journal of Dream Research, Supplemental Issue. Research Track abstracts include Regular talks, Symposia talks, Hot-off-the-Press talks, and Poster presentations. Presenters in other tracks: In the future, we plan to publish all IASD conference abstracts, but this year due to time constraints we had to settle for research track abstracts. Thus, the following instructions apply only to Research Track presenters.

The publication will take place AFTER the North Carolina conference, for the following reasons: As we were still working with the publication idea and practical aspects at the time of abstract submission, many of you might want to revise your abstract before publication, or even decline the opportunity to publish. Also, the journal would like to see abstracts between 250-500 words, so if your abstract does not fit into these limits, you have time to modify it. In addition, we want to remind you to be aware that your abstract should not contain details that might conflict with your plans to publish an original article elsewhere as some Journals are restrictive.

What do you need to do now?
1. Check your abstract, and modify it according to the above instructions (word count max 500 words; and check for details)

2. If your abstract is publishable as such, and needs no modification, inform Katja Valli: katval@utu.fi  and she will forward your abstract to the editors of IJoDR

3. If your abstract does require modification, make the changes and send the new abstract to Katja: katval@utu.fi  and she will forward your modified abstract to the editors of IJoDR

4. If you do not want your abstract to be published, inform Katja: katval@utu.fi  and she will not forward your abstract to the editors of IJoDR

The absolute DEADLINE for sending in your decision to publish, and/or your modified abstract is 16th of JULY. After that, the abstract will not get published!

On behalf of the publication team,
Katja Valli

 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.

CAROLINA DREAM GATHERING - ANNUAL CONFERENCE ASHEVILLE UPDATE



Final preparations are being made for the 27th annual IASD conference in Asheville, North Carolina, June 27 through July 1.

Here are some facts and figures to help you in your planning.
Online registration. If you haven't already registered, USPS mail registration ends next Thursday, June 10. You may still register online or on-site after you arrive, but registering online insures you will have no waiting or delays on the first day.
Lunches. If you have registered, but did not sign up for the lunch buffet package, we encourage you to do so. You can even sign up for lunches online after the June 10th registration deadline. The resort has a strict rule that food and beverage(s) purchased outside the resort cannot be brought into meeting rooms or dining facilities. You will be provided with a list of the many local restaurants in the area and in downtown Asheville, but we hope you will stay and dine with the rest of us - at least at lunchtime. Also, you may want to attend one of the special lunch meetings:

o the meeting with the research community on Monday
o planning for the 2011 conference on Tuesday
o the regional representatives working lunch on Wednesday
o the opportunity to meet with your regional representatives on Thursday.

Beer Lovers. This breaking news is just in. Asheville has been designated the Beer Capital of the nation, based on a national independent survey. During the week-long Beer City voting, Asheville was constantly leading, although cross-country rival Portland, Ore., almost pulled even over the weekend. When the voting ended Sunday evening, May 23, Asheville had 38.8 percent of the vote and Portland had 34.5 percent. Other major cities were also on the poll, with San Diego earning a meager 4.5 percent of the vote and Philadelphia registering only 3.2 percent. Asheville has dozens of excellent local breweries, so you might want to visit one or two while you are here. Here's a website to get you started: http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/77

Chamber of Commerce table. The city of Asheville plans to welcome you in true mountain style by providing a table in the exhibit area with goodies like lots of city information and coupons for local businesses.

Map. In anticipation that some people find their way better with a map than with words, Robert Gongloff and Laura Atkinson have put together a simple map of the immediate area around the Crowne Plaza. If maps help you, you can take a look and download one with the full directions to the 2010 conference venue site. Print a copy and bring it along: http://www.asdreams.org/2010/venue.htm.

We wish everyone a safe and relaxing trip. See you in a few weeks!

QUEBEC REGIONAL CONFERENCE A HUGE SUCCESS!

Spotlight on Spain and Portugal
By Jordi Borràs García, Spain and Portugal Regional Representative

Besides my job as a psychologist, where I explore dreams as my favourite therapeutic tool, I organize weekend dream workshops regularly in which I explain the basics of working with dreams. I'm also leading some dream circles, where some of the people who have previously attended a dream workshop get together in order to share their dreams and do some group therapy.

I'm sharing the importance of dreams by giving conferences in different places, such as schools and hospitals. I am also interviewed regularly on several TV and radio programs. For example, I was interviewed recently on a TV program for Spanish television in which they introduced me as IASD’s regional representative. The interview can be viewed online at http://tinyurl.com/2c5l736

I've heard or read about some people in Spain who are working with dreams therapeutically--and know some of them personally--and I'd like them to know about IASD, so I'm thinking of promoting a regional meeting just to get to know each other. The trouble is that my newborn baby, lovely Júnia, is taking much of my time, and I can't see how I might organize it. I'm thinking about talking to another member of the IASD in Barcelona, Juna Albert, to see if we can manage it together.

Wow, Jordi, you are sure are doing a lot as the father of a newborn! Congratulations on the birth of Júnia!

Our “at large” reps will meet with those who don’t have a rep or are in a region without other IASD members.

Please note that the times for these meetings have changed: The regional reps working lunch is now Wednesday, May 30th from 12:30 to 2:00 pm. The General Regional Lunch with the whole membership will be held Thursday 1:00-2:30 pm.

If you do not have a regional rep for your area, consider becoming one! To find the list of regional contact reps go to the IASD Website. To become a regional contact, or participate in a regional meet-up contact Scott Sparrow, Membership Chair: kingfisher@lagunamadre.net.
