Throughout history men and women have turned to their dreams for answers. From Rene Descartes’ discovery of Analytical Geometry to the last movements of George Frederic Handel’s Messiah, dreams have shaped our destiny. Perhaps they will do so again!
Join us for a three-day Global Lucid Dreaming Experiment when we seek answers to the current economic unrest in the world through incubating our dreams. To participate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will receive instructions for the dream incubation by email. Experiments will run April 24 through 29, 2009.

DREAMING 2.0: REACHING OUT THROUGH FACEBOOK
|Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. Keynote Address: “Everyone Who Dreams Partakes of Shamanism.” Dr. Krippner will explain how early shamans emerged to negotiate the shift between worlds and to interpret the images that occur in dreams. He will explore the history of dreamwork up to the present and discuss the artwork of Rob Van de Horst.
Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at Saybrook Graduate School and co-director of the Dream Studies Certificate Program. A former president of IASD, and recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award, he is co-author of Dream Telepathy, Extraordinary Dreams, and Personal Mythology, and Dreamworking. He is also the editor of Dreamtime and Dreamwork and co-editor of Dreamscaping, Healing Tales, and Healing Stories. His website is http://stanleykrippner.weebly.com/
Barbara Tedlock, Ph.D. Keynote Address: “The Shamanic Power and Spirituality of Dreaming.” Dr. Tedlock will describe Ojibwe, Huichol, Mayan, and Shipibo visionary dreaming practices and show art works created by shaman-dreamers from these and other traditions.
|“The Secret History of Dreaming.” Mr. Moss will explain how dreams throughout history have aided the dreamer in waking life. He’ll discuss the new discipline called “dream archeology” and why humans need the skills of both shamans, scholars and detectives to fathom the past and to prepare for the changes that are coming in the future history of our world.
Robert Moss is the pioneer of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of shamanism and modern dreamwork. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood and first learned the ways of a traditional dreaming people through his friendship with Aborigines. He leads popular seminars and trainings all over the world, including a three-year training for teachers of Active Dreaming and a lively online dream school at www.spirituality-health.com . A former lecturer in ancient history at the Australian National University, he is a best-selling novelist, journalist and independent scholar. His many books on dreaming and imagination include Conscious Dreaming, Dreamgates, The Three "Only" Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence and Imagination and The Secret History of Dreaming. His website is www.mossdreams.com
A juried exhibition of dream-inspired art will be held at the Wyndham O’Hare Hotel in Chicago, in conjunction with the 26th annual IASD conference, “Earth Dreaming,” Friday June 26 – Tuesday June 30, 2009. The show will be co-curated by Richard Russo and Kim Vergil.
IASD will open its 26th annual conference, “Earth Dreaming” with a ceremony and celebration of IASD and the Earth and its inhabitants -- an event that is sure to draw attendees together. We'll also celebrate IASD's 25th birthday as an incorporated non-profit association. Pictures, people, songs, stories, and especially dreams will be feted.
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org
