|THE RIPPLE EFFECT OR WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
IASD member, Massimo Schinco, who teaches psychology but is a fine musician, had a dream in which he dreamed a melody. The dream was the outcome of a conversation he'd had with IASD member, Teresa DeCicco, at the IASD 2008 Montreal conference. Subsequently, Massimo made a video containing his analysis of the origin of the music and published it on UTube . Massimo also sent it to Teresa, and she put it up on her blog (view here) Now that is networking at its finest!
Ernest Hartman presented a lecture and participated in a panel discussion, at a one-day conference in Philadelphia called "The Gift of the Dream." About 250 people attended this event. He also has a website www.tufts.edu/~ehartm01/ featuring links to his papers on dreams and other related topics.
Velva Lee Heraty is a dream blogger for a publication called Creative Loafing. Creative Loafing has four publications in Florida and one in Chicago, The Reader. Velva’s pen name is Dream Momma. Visit her blog.
BREATHING IN COLOUR – A LUCID DREAMING NOVEL BY CLARE JAY
Originally written as part of Clare’s PhD thesis, which examined the link between lucid dreaming and creative writing, Clare drew on her own lucid dreams to inspire each stage of the writing process. The novel works with the heightened sense perceptions of the dream world and explores the powerful healing ability of lucid dreaming. Visit Clare’s website, which includes articles on her lucid dream research – several of which have appeared in IASD publications or as conference papers – alongside insights into the creative state of the “Writer’s Trance,” and extracts from the book. www.clarejay.com Breathing in Colour is published by Piatkus of the Little, Brown Book Group, March 2009. Available from www.amazon.co.uk.
Robert Moss’ novel The Firekeeper, which goes deep into the dream practices of the Iroquois in the time of the French and Indian War, was quite a favorite with IASD members when it came out in 1995. The good news is that it will be republished by SUNY Press in a handsome new trade paperback edition in June, and will be available at the “Earth Dreaming” conference. IASD past president, Stan Krippner offered this endorsement: "The Firekeeper is an engrossing, captivating book. I am in awe of its scope and power. Its accounts of Native American shamans and their encounters with Europeans ring true....The result is an intriguing story that is richly textured, and a coterie of characters that never fails to fascinate the reader." James Michener commented, "To read The Firekeeper is to be transported to another time and place, and leave it measurably enlightened."
Robert Moss appeared on Shrink Rap Radio on March 12. To listen to this lively and enlightening podcast visit http://tinyurl.com/clppdy He also appeared on CBC's beloved "Tapestry," aired Sunday March 1, which brought a tremendous response across Canada. The link to his interview with Michael Krasny on "The Forum" of San Francisco's KQED on Jan 12 can be found at www.mossdreams.com Robert was also on Madison (WI) public radio on March 20.
Bob Hoss was interviewed for Ladies Home Journal magazine. Bob spoke about dreams and dreaming and IASD’s annual conference, “Earth Dreaming.”
Thanks to SPA magazine for alerting their readers to IASD’s “Earth Dreaming” conference in their March/April 2009 issue. The article included the “Earth Dreaming” web page and conference dates for people interested in exploring more about dreams and dreaming.
First off, I want to thank everyone who has joined the IASD group on Facebook. Since last month, the group has tripled in size! The fun’s just begun.
This month, let’s get down to business for a seriously effective and inexpensive way to promote your website, your name, and/or your dreamy brand. The key phase here is freelance web writing. By submitting original essays to article directories and to other websites and blogs, you can quickly expand your sphere of influence on the Internet.
This method is also called article marketing, and sometimes “bum marketing.” That last charming phrase is because it costs nothing. The fact is, most websites are looking for fresh content for their sites, and will gladly accept your work. Some will even pay.
But what is the pay off besides the free byline? After all, it takes time to write an article, and we are all busy people.
Here’s what: Standard practice is that you can have a link back to your site in the author box at the end of your article. That’s good for several reasons.
• First, of course, is that interested readers can easily click back to your website.
New Members: 27
|The 90 IASD members participating in our ongoing 2009 Conference Campaign sent out their second mailing. This one focused on the Dream Art Show which will be featured as part of the upcoming Chicago “Earth Dreaming” Conference. In support of this program WFI-PBS DREAMTIME in Indianapolis sent out the following press release. And now Indianapolis will come to Chicago!
This is only one exciting result of members working together to make Earth Dreaming known to their friends and colleagues. Information on the E-Campaign can be found at www.asdreams.org/2009
WFYI – PBS produced DREAMTIME: Universal Archetypes combines expert commentary, dream stories and re-enactments, as well as striking artwork by artists who are inspired and work from their dreams.
International and nationally recognized experts in the fields of sleep and dream science, psychology, metaphysics and spirituality inform, entertain and introduce us to one of the most significant types of symbols or patterns in our dreams: the Archetype.
DREAMTIME: The Art Exhibit is a compilation of creative work including 2D, 3D, photography and video art by artists whose dream-inspired work was used to illustrate the concept of archetypes in DREAMTIME: Universal Archetypes.
The exhibit opens May 1 (opening reception 5pm- 9pm) and runs through June 18th at the gallery of Dean Johnson Design, 646 Massachusetts Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204 (http://www.deanjohnson.com/gallery/about)
DREAMTIME: Universal Archetypes will be shown two times at the IASD 2009 “Earth Dreaming” Conference in Chicago. (Check your conference schedule for time and location.) Many of the artists will be submitting the works showcased in the television program to the juried IASD Dream Art Exhibition. We encourage all to come and screen the program featuring many IASD member experts and enjoy the stunning work by dream-inspired artists!
Additional envisioned DREAMTIME television programs include: Dream Symbols: How to Work with Them, Nightmares, Extraordinary Dreams, Children’s Dreams, and Dreams of Sex, Sensuality and Relationships. Visit www.dreamtimetv.org for more information. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are an artist and are interested in your work being shown in these additional programs.
Dreams can provide us with unique creative ideas and solutions, insight into our personal health and well-being, and can point the way to an expanded conception of our own great potential.

Spotlight on Australia and Canada: International Linkages
By Susan Benson
Being Part of IASD: A Changing and Growing Relationship. I attended my first Association for the Study of Dreams conference in 2000 in Washington DC. At that point, the Association had not formally incorporated under its umbrella, an international focus. Since then I have been fortunate to attend the 20th dream conference in Berkeley, and the 25th dream conference in Montreal. I will be attending and presenting at the 26th Conference in Chicago. This conference brings together for me my long-standing research interests in social ecology, ‘sense of place’, dreaming and dream groups.
When I reflect about what my participation in previous conferences has fed and contributed to, in terms of these interests, I am aware of access to information, resources and contacts, but more specifically and in a long-lasting way, I am aware of being a member of a dedicated community. I am also aware of a sense of relationship that has continued to expand beyond an original vision of a National Association, which was the original parameter of the Association I first encountered.
IASD Regional Representative for Australia
Recently the C.G. Jung Society of Sydney welcomed IASD long-term supporter and past president, Ernest Hartmann, for an evening presentation about his own work and current dream research. Ernest’s passion and enthusiasm for talking about dreams generated animating conversations. His visit also provided an opportunity to publicize the forthcoming Earth Dreaming conference in Chicago.
Robert Bosnak, who maintains a busy world-wide dream related practice, has made Sydney, Australia his home base since 2004. It seems fitting that Robert move during his time as president of IASD. He oversaw the transition from national association to International Association. Robert co-founded the International Society for Embodied Imagination and offers a course of training and certification in dream work
Within Australia there is a living and ancient, revered tradition of the ‘Dreamtime’ and of maintaining the ‘tending’ of dreams. The dialogue between the Western and indigenous traditions has generated rich discussions, particularly around archetype, ‘sense of place’, belonging and ways of being responsible for and relating to land and ecosystem. It seems particularly relevant to draw attention to this conversation given our current global economic and climate crises.
The IASD membership numbers for Australia are low, but loyal. My vision and dream for developing IASD initiatives within Australia is to increase the membership numbers and to develop an IASD sponsored regional seminar which would provide an opportunity for both local and international participants to attend. I am particularly interested in furthering contact in the Asia Pacific region. Although WebPages, internet and blogs all provide valued meeting places, I feel the opportunity to gather, meet and dream together provides a great stimulus to a community, and I sense it has been part of the strength and success of the IASD.
