MEMBERS IN THE MEDIA AND AROUND TOWN
One of the most popular films at IASD conferences has been about David Blum’s inner journey, expressed in his film Appointment with the Wise Old Dog which was produced in 1998 as he was dying from cancer. His wife Sarah continues to promote the film and now has a website which fills out more of the story and offers the DVD.
David Blum lived in two parallel worlds: one as an internationally renowned conductor and writer, the other, in his words, as “…a kind of scribe whose medium, these past thirty-five years, has been oil-based crayons.” Blum’s private parallel passion was his continual engagement with his inner dream figures – drawing them as they appeared, in radiant landscapes often accompanied by the music of Mozart and Beethoven. Appointment With the Wise Old Dog, realized shortly before his death, traces the arc of a singular inner journey stretching across a lifetime process of self-exploration and transformation that found form in his dream drawings. By way of an amazing grass-roots movement, Blum’s DVD continues to inspire those open to the inner life’s limitless possibility for growth – even in the dying process. Robert Sardello writes of Appointment With the Wise Old Dog: “David Blum has given a wondrous gift to the world with this documentary film. Here is astounding evidence that as a body recedes; soul carries on sustained entirely by images.” The film and Transcript are available on the website: www.davidblummusiciananddreamer.com
IASD is mentioned in an article titled, "Field of Dreams," which appeared in the February Prevention Magazine
IASD members Marcia Emery and Deirdre Barrett are quoted.

Patricia Garfield’s First Novel: Delfine the Dream Girl
Patricia Garfield is pleased to announce the March launch of her children's novel, Delfine the Dream Girl. IASD members are invited to read the first chapter online: http://creativedreaming.org
Follow the adventures of Delfine, a super-heroine coming into her power and learning to harness it. As she falls asleep, Delfine experiences a change that sends her flying through her open bedroom window to land in the midst of some child’s nightmare. There, Delfine helps dreamers solve their terrifying nightmares. Her adventures teach young readers useful methods for coping with their own dark dreams. She visits dreams of sleepers in different countries, cultures, and times. Readers not only absorb effective means to banish nightmares, they also are exposed to creative ways (poetry, song, art) of using their fascinating dream imagery. http://creativedreaming.org/
