DREAMING 2.0: REACHING OUT THROUGH FACEBOOK
By Ryan Hurd

This month I am focusing on how social media sites like Facebook can help dream workers and enthusiasts expand our networks, educational outreach, and publicity on the world-wide Inter-web. These sites, while often portrayed as having a global reach, are also important for local networking. In fact, finding potential clients, customers, affiliates and colleagues in your neck of the woods is a crucial part of the online social networking world.

It’s About Transparency and Integrity
If you’re over thirty years old, you may have a natural revulsion to online social networking. That’s understandable, especially when it comes to concerns about privacy. But I have found that, for many people, understanding the social values of these online communities more often than not heals this aversion.

Simply put, the values behind online social networking are transparency and integrity. If everything you do is authentic, and about adding value for others, you will quickly gain a following in Facebook and the web-at-large. Build trust through dialogue, and then provide opportunities when they are thematically relevant. It’s not that different than handing out a business card and sealing a deal with a handshake.

The Profile Page
Here’s how it works. You sign up for an account at http://Facebook.com. The centerpiece is building a profile page. You have complete control about how “open” you want to be and how much information you want to share, by choosing whether or not to display where you live, your job, your interests, and your websites. You can use your profile as a way to keep in touch with colleagues, or as a way to let people you know what you are working on and thinking about. You can message individuals (publicly and privately), share links (such as your latest press release), and build personal alliances based on interests. Uploading photos and even videos is not a problem, so people can easily learn about your world.

Friending Strategies
It’s also easy to import your email contacts to see how many of your contacts are already on Facebook, and then you can “friend” them. (Yes, I just used friend as a verb. If you can wrap your head around that one, the rest is downhill!) You may choose to only friend people who you have previously met in person. Or, you can open yourself up to friending those who have similar interests in your area, which can result in potential workshop participants or other opportunities down the road.

If you already have a public persona and some notoriety, be ready: you may get many friend requests, which are basically pleas to “influence me.” These friends will have access to links you promote, public discussions on your “wall,” as well as whatever multi-media you choose to make available (video lectures anyone?). This can be a great way to indirectly promote your work, your research, and your publications. Many semi-public figures use Facebook to take the temperature of their fan base (and many of these have assistants to do the routine tasks of updating the site).

Keep in mind, if you are looking to gather many friends in order to inspire them and market to them, do so with respect and in good taste. In other words, spamming your friends every day with email offers is not an acceptable practice, and will result in you losing friends and possibly being banned. Facebook is about building trust through transparency, not leverage.

So how else can Facebook widen your sphere of influence? Besides building your personal profile, you can also join “Groups” as well as write stand-alone “Pages” on a topic of interest.

Groups
Facebook Groups are centered around organizations, causes, and businesses. Here’s a completely random example: The International Association for the Study of Dreams
http://tinyurl.com/dlgbw5

Maybe you heard of us! This group is just getting started, with 30 or so members. However, this group could easily be a way to attract new members to the IASD by group member’s participation, such as sharing links about recent dream research, discussing hot topics, and even providing the public with ways to participate in dream research.

Imagine a place where all the world’s leading dream experts stopped by with their two-cents every once in a while.... this could be a cool way to spread the message of dream education while we get to know each other and cross-fertilize our ideas. It’s also a great way to build your name.

Of course, it’s important that we abide by the ethics of the IASD, which means, amongst other conflicts of interest, not providing “dream interpretation” services in public in order to attract private clients.

Pages
You can also host a “page” on Facebook based on your interests. This is way to market your business more directly than through a Group. Some popular examples include public figures and historic places. Individuals become “fans” of the page, and their social networks are notified when they do so as part of their personal “newsfeed.” This is the real power of Facebook: word-of-mouth is still in business. Fans can add photos, videos, and most importantly — discussion. Here’s one Page about Carl Jung:
http://tinyurl.com/cud2sd

You can also write a page on a topic, such as “Archetypal Psychology.” This can be a great way to spread a message that is close to your heart, and also to your business. While directing marketing to your fans (such as continuously linking out to your business webpage) is not a good idea, you can still update a Page you have created with relevant news, which might include, for example, your archetypal psychology workshop next month... No conflict of interest here.

That’s the basics of Facebook. Join me online and let’s start influencing the fifth most popular web site in the world.

2009 “EARTH DREAMING” CONFERENCE E-MAIL CAMPAIGN ROARS TO A START

IASD would like to thank members Sheila Asato and Laurel Clark for what is turning out to be the most exciting IASD advertising campaign in recent history. Both of these members, who live in the Midwest, volunteered to spread the word about the IASD 2009 Earth Dreaming Conference, and asked in early February for an email designed by IASD that they could send out to their respective e-mail lists.

This led to us to ask the general membership if they had mailing lists that they (similarly) would like to send a conference email. And THAT led to what we are now calling the 2009 Conference E-Mail Campaign. Over eighty IASD members responded to the request to mail out information about the conference to their e-mail lists. The first of the conference e-mails was sent out the first weekend in March to an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 dreamers on up-to-date and well-targeted lists. Way to go, IASD!

Participants in this E-Mail Campaign will be asked to mail another message mid-March containing the Art Show information and a final email in late April/early May, again urging people to come to the conference.

In addition to the members who agreed to participate in the email campaign, the mailing to IASD members about the campaign yielded several other results. Among them were these.

1. Twenty or thirty members responded to say they had no email list, but that they would gladly put the conference logo on their web site or distribute posters (downloadable from the conference web site) in their areas.

2. One person sent a file of 500 artists who will receive the Art Show Mailing. There are several artists on the email campaign list, including Art Show co-chair Kim Vergil, so we are hoping for a fairly widespread distribution of the Art Show guidelines in a couple of weeks.

3. Don Van Nuys of ShrinkRap Radio in Sonoma, CA is scheduled to interview Robert Moss on March 17, and promises to advertise the conference to his 150,000 listeners.

4. Rev. Jeremy Taylor has already begun to spread the word. We have heard from the person who organizes for him in the Bay Area and another who organizes in Boulder. Both have asked to be on the e-mail campaign list.

The value of this type of campaign is not only in the fact that people are learning about IASD and the Chicago conference, but that IASD members are enthusiastic about the opportunity to advertise IASD. In return for their participation in the 2009 Conference E-Mail Campaign, members can have their web site logo or a banner of their organization placed on the Conference Sponsor Page of the 2009 Conference web site.

Haven't yet joined the 2009 Conference E-Mail Campaign, but would like to do so? If you missed the mailing for the first e-mail of the campaign, you can still send it to your mailing list, because all e-mails will be made available online at www.asdreams.org/2009 in the PR section.

If you wish to be notified about mailing the next email (week of March 15) contact conference Advertising Manager Jean Campbell at jccampb@aol.com

SPOTLIGHT on JAPAN

By Shuhei Enomoto

Who is the Dreamer?
“I had a dream” in Japanese is "I saw a dream (Yume)." The word "Yume" means dream. Some Japanese scholars say Yume represents sleeping eye or seeing in sleep. Did ancient Japanese know REM? I don't know. In waking life we say “I have a dream,” while in dreaming, dream has us and its environment surrounds us. We see and experience it in dreaming.

IASD and me and Japan
In 2003, it was my first time to attend the IASD conference, Berkeley, California. I couldn't believe my eyes because hundreds of people around the world were gathering only for DREAMS! I met with great researchers and dream workers and dream lovers. I was encouraged by their great passion and instinctively realized the importance of this organization. To me it looked like Summer of Dream Love. I hope Japanese dreamers are interested in IASD too and will join IASD as I did.

As Regional Representatives, Sheila Asato and I are now planning a translation of IASD introductory web pages, because the wall of language is higher than expected. When Japanese see this translation, they will feel welcomed and be able to see the activities of IASD. In the next step, I will review IASD authors’ books which are translated into Japanese. There are more than 30 books from IASD authors which will appeal to Japanese dreamers.

Of course I believe that a dream can represent itself without language details. Dreams can speak through images such as cartoonist Jesse Reklaw’s drawings. I like his cartoons much!

Dreamwork in Japan
Four weeks ago I participated in a dream workshop, which was led by Robert Bosnak who has been coming to Japan almost every year since 1985. I also have been taking part in a monthly embodied dream work group in Tokyo. In my 7 years experience of his embodied dreamwork method, I feel that working with dreams expands a capacity of staying together with unknown and trains an ability of being in uncertainties. These are very important senses needed to live in this era.

Besides embodied dreamwork group, there are several different kinds of dream groups in Japan. These include Gestalt, Process-work, Focusing and more. Temples for dream incubation existed in ancient Japan and the “dream seller-buyer story” is found easily in old stories of Japan. Like the other countries Japan has been interested in the potential of dreams since ancient times. I hope IASD dream seeds Japanese dreamers.


A few notes from your Membership Chair…

I hope you all enjoy Shuhei Enomoto’s poetic writing and enthusiasm about dreams from his Japanese perspective and location. I join him in saying not only “I hope IASD dream seeds Japanese dreamers,” but add that I hope and already see IASD dream “seeding dreamers” in many countries around the world in a similar way.

Welcome to all our new members who have found us via internet or through other contacts. Please get involved, browse our website for opportunities and come to “Earth Dreaming,” this year’s annual conference in Chicago, IL, USA.

We also extend a special welcome and recognition to our newest Affiliate Member, the School of Metaphysics in Windyville, MO, USA.

Shuhei mentions a planned Japanese translation of our intro pages on the IASD website. I want to add that this project has been long in the pipeline but is proceeding. Soon there will be several languages available as a friendly multilingual gateway to our website for non-English speakers, though English will still be the common language for our website overall, our publications, and for our conferences.

Finally, if you have joined IASD but have not returned your E-Consent form by snail mail, please do so. It is necessary for you to sign this consent form once and it will be kept on file in our office. If you have not signed it you will not be able to vote electronically in IASD elections. If you need help with this or are unsure whether you signed and sent this E-Consent, contact Richard Wilkerson office@asdreams.org or me for help.
