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/

OVER 100 ARTISTS SUBMIT WORK FOR 2011 DREAM ART SHOW

By Kim Vergil
The art committee team in the Netherlands has been hard at work getting the call out to artists in the area local to the Rolduc Conference. Thank you! All the results are showing that your hard work is paying off. Over 100 artists (102 to be precise) submitted a count of at least 300 pieces for the 2011 Dream Art Show! In the past we would had about 10-15 submissions before the deadline, so this is huge. And it is also a testament to the hard work of a lot of great artists.

The more applications the better the results of the show! The quality can be very high when there is a lot of choice, which has never been an issue before. But I think maybe this year we will have our work cut out for us.
Robert Gongloff has created the online submission form that has made a huge difference in data entry (it used to take days). So we have joined the new technology, and so far so good. There are a few glitches to work out but in general, it seems to be working. Thank you very much, Roberto, for the program and all the support you have offered the artists. So appreciated!

Thanks also to Jos Jacobs for a wonderful poster for the call to artists and for another one to come for the Dream Art Exhibition. There will be five Jury members from across the globe. How exciting to get to work together.

The exhibition is curated by:
• Kim Vergil (Canada), Chair, IASD Arts Committee,
• Jos Jacobs (Belgium), artist and former instructor at the High School of Arts in Hasselt,
• Dorine Hulshof (The Netherlands), artist and instructor at two academies of arts in the Netherlands,
• Uta Göbel-Groß (Germany), artist and chairperson of “dreieck.triangle.driehoek” Art Association
• Richard Russo (U.S.) Editor-in-chief of the IASD Dream Time magazine.


SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT IASD'S 28TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Social networking is currently the rage. IASD's Facebook Fan page topped 500 members in March, and is growing daily as more people discover the value of regular updates on dream work and research around the globe. Now we are asking you to use the power of social networking to promote IASD’s 28th Annual International Conference, which is being held in a beautiful location and features some of the most exciting presentations ever.

We have provided some tools for you to use. You'll find them in Conference Newsroom at www.asdreams.org/2011

FOR ONLINE USE

The e-version of the conference flyer is available in the newsroom to be sent to your e-mail lists.

FOR PRINT DISTRIBUTION

We invite you to download and print the following from the Conference Newsroom.

A one-page flyer promoting IASD’s 28th International Conference is available. This same ad will be reproduced in color in the Spring issue of Dream Network Journal and in black in white in the upcoming issue of the Lucid Dream Exchange as well as IASD's Dream Time. Also refer friends and colleague to ads in the upcoming issues of five European publications: The Psychologist, Kindred Spirit in the UK; De Psycholoog and Paravisie in the Netherlands; and Psychologie Heute in Germany; as well as ads in The APA Monitor and IASD's APA publication Dreaming.

The print version of the conference flyer is also available for download and printing on the Newsroom page of the conference web site. Note that this is a double-sided version which contains the list of conference presenters, so it may need professional printing. Along with being sent to IASD members in an upcoming mailing, this flyer will be available at the upcoming Montreal Regional Conference and also at the Rubin Museum in New York, which is featuring a series of dream-related presentations involving IASD members.

So spread the word about this exciting conference we are planning. And plan to attend yourself.

Spotlight on Quebec

by Laurette Dupuis and Claude Desloges, Regional representative for Eastern Canada: Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland/Labrador

Montreal is shovelling away the snow and looking forward to an early spring for the hosting of the Second Annual IASD-Quebec Regional Conference. The organizing committee has put together a program featuring a wide range of presentations that should offer everyone something.

This year the committee opted for a new format in a more spacious environment: the Hotel Auberge Universel, a familiar site for those who attended the IASD international conference in 2008. The purpose this year was to develop a program that gives participants the flexibility to attend one of three choices at any time of the day. In addition, this environment will allow participants to move around with greater ease. This will facilitate exchanges and networking, particularly during breaks and the lunch period. So as an added benefit, parking and lunch on the premises are included this year in the registration fee. The committee is hopeful that these new features will enhance exchanges within the IASD-Quebec membership during the conference and allow the community to grow, bond, and develop.

The 2011 IASD-Quebec Conference program - inspired by the formula of the IASD International Conferences - will gather all participants in the main hall for the first and last sessions. Beyond this, participants will have three choices. In the main hall, a variety of topics will be scheduled every 45 minutes. A second smaller room will offer four practical workshops throughout the day. A third room will offer a special program for professional therapists: in the morning, Janine Corbeil, a gestalt therapist well known in Quebec and Europe, will provide training; in the afternoon, Nicholas Pesant, Ph.D., psychology, University of Montreal, will demonstrate the Clara Hill cognitive-experiential approach to dream work.

The final gathering in the main hall will highlight the IASD International Conference in Rolduc as well as the many activities and projects of IASD.

The IASD-Quebec Regional Conference Committee is headed by Claude Desloges, Regional Director, supported by Nicole Gratton, Angela DuPont, Monique Séguin, and Laurette Dupuis.
