CALL FOR RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS
For research on private body function Ann Sayre Wiseman is
requesting authentic "Piss and Poop dreams". This subject is rarely talked
about, yet is very common and is usually quite amazing amusing and sometimes
rather shocking. Often it seems quite normal to be defecating in public,
relieving this normal urge which keeps us healthy and regular. But on waking we
are astonished and wonder why.
Please send a brief paragraph telling:
1. Where it happens, in what company, and under what circumstances,
2. How you felt while in the act
3. How you felt about the act after waking.
4. Anything else of interest. Of course no identifying names will be used.
send to: Ansayre@hotmail.com
The launch of the second phase of the TerraPlaces Project began Sept. 21
and we'd love to see you participate.
This phase of the project is especially exciting because we're exploring dreams!
Specifically, the relationship between dreams and nature, dreams and place,
dreams and landscape. We'll present a basic dream curriculum and then help you
deepen the practice of observing and sitting with a place in nature by
cultivating your relationship both with the outer landscape of nature and the
inner landscape of dreams.
If you have any questions about the project, feel free to email me. Go here to
http://tinyurl.com/2dt6qar. Please feel free to share this
email with others who might be interested. I look forward to seeing you!

Spotlight on Japan
By Misa Tsuruta, IASD Regional Representative
Our Japanese group convened in August, exactly one year after Shuhei Enomoto and
I met for the first time. We celebrated our one-year-old birthday, along with
our friend Takanari Tajiri.
By surfing the IASD website, I found another member in Japan,David Trokeloshvili,
who is from Canada. We are hoping he can join us for the October meeting.
Takanari presented on Jeremy Taylor's dreamwork method at a transpersonal
psychology conference on September 10. He also distributed IASD flyers.
In an Embodied Dreamwork Workshop in August, Shuhei distributed flyers, as well.
He and his colleagues are planning to have a few more ED workshops in 2011, some
of which will include Robbie Bosnak.
I'm also going to post an invitation to join IASD on the International Mental
Health Professionals Japan (IMHPJ) listserv, which consists of overseas-educated
mental health professionals. I am also going to distribute information
pertaining to ongoing and upcoming dream-related events.
I sincerely hope that these efforts will bring more dreamers to IASD, as well as
to our regional group!
As a new officer and board member for the IASD, I am interested in learning more
about what attracts people to our organization. Specifically, I would really
appreciate it if you would contact me and let me know what means most to you
about your IASD membership. Do the conferences, publications, or Member Pages
prompt you to join or renew, or does something less tangible figure into your
decision? If so, what is it? Hearing your answer to this question will make a
big difference in my awareness and efforts to serve the membership in the
future. So please let me what matters the most to you about IASD membership.
Also, please feel free to contact me 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.

Member Pages to be Updated
We realize that the Member Pages include quite a few lapsed members, and so we
are in the process of updating the Member Pages. If you have a Member Page, or
you are planning to set one up, you might be interested to know that Member
Pages rank highly on Google whenever someone searches for you by name. Your
membership in the IASD is, therefore, one of the first things that people learn
about you when they do an online search. Indeed, being a part of the IASD
community may be a very effective way to bolster your personal and professional
identity. With this in mind, please keep your Member Page updated––and most
importantly renew your membership so your page will stay on the website!
Please check the IASD website for up-to-date names and contact information for
the regional representative in your area. The Regional Representative webpage is
divided into regions, making your search more user-friendly.
If you do not have a regional rep for your area, consider becoming one! You
could serve an important networking role for IASD. To become a regional rep,
contact Scott Sparrow, membership chair:
JOIN IASD'S FACEBOOK PAGE
Be sure to join our Facebook page! We have 276 friends and growing! And please
let your Facebook friends know about IASD’s Facebook page, as well as IASD’s
website (www.asdreams.org). You can help us reach a lot of new people by taking
a few minutes to do this.
