BECOME A DRUM DANCE AND DREAM FOR PEACE 2011 SPONSOR
ddd animation


On June 19, and for the week following, drummers all over the world will be drumming and dreaming up a little peace. Drum Dance and Dream for Peace 2011, an activity of the World Dreams Peace Bridge, is a totally volunteer effort. We welcome your global participation.

There are, however, some expenses: travel expenses to give a twelve-year-old Iraqi boy and two siblings a birthday he'll never forget, supplies for the Ceremony for the Future of the World's Children, extra hand drums for passers by, and our own support of the World Children's Festival sponsor, the International Child Art Foundation.

If you would like to have your logo displayed on our web site as one of the sponsors of a Drum Dance and Dream for Peace 2011 event, we ask that you make a donation of $35 (more if you can) to the iMAGE Project (our umbrella nonprofit organization) to help cover expenses. Go to http://tinyurl.com/43n2nr8 for information on becoming a Drum Dance and Dream Sponsor.

delfine book cover

Patricia Garfield’s first novel: Delfine The Dream Girl is now available in Dutch. Dutch dreamers are invited to read or download for free the first chapter. Other IASD members may enjoy reading the English version of 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.


A new issue of Ioan Dirina’s book, I have proof of a Higher Power, relates prophetic dreams and offers proof of a higher power. You can read free excerpts at www.thelibertytrust.com.

wat heb jij gedroomd


Wat Heb Jij Gedroomd Vannacht? (literally, What did you dream last night?) is a new book from Dutch dream coach, Nicoline Douwes Isema and journalist,, Cathelijne Esser. Designed to bring readers on an easy and fun, yet scientific, journey through the world of dreams Wat Heb Jij Gedroomd Vannacht? helps skeptics and believers get to the bottom of their dreams through process, not definition.

Communicated in a magazine format, with stunning illustrations from over 30 young Dutch artists, the magazine contains articles as varied as: the neurology of dreams; the latest research on nightmares; dream sharing; business dreaming; and precognitive dreams.

The book introduces the Dutch public to luminaries in the dream research field, with contributions by Jean Campbell, Jayne Gackenbach, Marja Moors, and others. It points readers to the ground breaking research of Deirde Barrett, Clara E. Hill, and Robert Van de Castle, to name a few.

Wat Heb Jij Gedroomd Vannacht? seeks to upgrade the image of dreams. It introduces decades of research to the Dutch public, replacing the age old question: “What does it mean when you dream of a...” with a modern view on dream research. The goal is to make the question 'what did you dream last night' a conversation starter at the water cooler, the kitchen table, or over drinks.

Available May 16th, 2011 throughout the Netherlands.

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 the Conference Newsroom at www.asdreams.org/2011

For Online Use
Join us on Facebook. It's easy. Just go to the IASD main page (or the top of this Dream News page) and click the Facebook link. Once there you can share IASD with all of your Facebook friends.

Put a conference logo (in the language of your choice) on your personal web site or blog. A variety of logo files are available in the newsroom.

The e-version of the conference flyer is available in the newsroom to be sent to your e-mail lists. Remember that the e-version of the conference flyer contains a screen shot and hot link to the Rolduc conference video created by Conference Host, Willem Fermont and Tamara Gurbis of Phenomenal Films.

Or you can invite friends to watch the video directly by joining us on the IASD YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/iasdreams

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.

Deep Dreaming Awake: From Personal Transformation to Collective Wisdom to Community Action
I have facilitated a number of dream groups over the years using an approach that combines Montague Ullman’s method with psychosynthesis and embodied imaging. In January 2009, I became a co-participant as well as the facilitator of an eight-member dream group from the Vancouver region of British Columbia, which meets monthly. All dreams that were shared in group were also included in a password-protected blog, with participant comments, and other dreams that arose between our sessions. Within six months, 28 dreams were collected. During this time, the participants filled out a questionnaire requesting how each was coming to appreciate personal and group dreaming. This exercise in dreaming led to an opening of artistic productivity for the four visual artists in the group. Along with the 28 sequential dreams, and personal and group reflections, there were approximately 100 pieces of art in the form of paintings, drawings, sculpture, and poetry. Using the research method of Intuitive Inquiry it became apparent that with hermeneutic reflection that an old myth with modern day insights was evolving collectively. This research became a paper entitled, "Soul reflections: Personal transformation and collective wisdom via dream group sharing," which I presented at Eurotas' (European Transpersonal Association) annual meeting in the fall of 2009.

Today, more than two years since we began, and as part of the Canadian Transpersonal Community, we are meeting twice monthly to continue the dreaming, and to collaborate on a book and film. These endeavors will explore the power of shared dreaming, collective mythos, personal transformations via dreaming, and the call to action, that is, bringing the knowledge, wisdom, and synergy of collective dreaming into the greater community.

2011 MONTREAL IASD REGIONAL CONFERENCE A SMASHING SUCCESS

By Laurette Dupuis

April 2, Montreal, Quebec, Auberge Hotel Universel, 7:30 AM: ACTION!  Registration tables are set up on the mezzanine.  Volunteers are busy.    Kim Vergil is carrying in her paintings which she sets up at the back of the main hall.  Coffee is brewing and the excitement and expectation of a great day ahead is high.  Another IASD regional conference - the second for Montreal!  Already the organizing committee and the volunteers know that there are 256 registrations, as many as last year.

While in the main hall 45-minute presentations were scheduled throughout the day, the program also offered attendees two other options:  in a second hall, pre-registered participants attended either the morning or the afternoon two-hour training sessions for professionals and in a third hall four workshops were scheduled throughout the day:  lucid dreaming, dream journaling, working with end of life dreams, problem solving dreams.  These workshops and the training sessions were very well attended.  The two halls were full throughout the day and many people had to reluctantly be turned away.  This format is therefore likely to influence the structure of the program for the 2012 Montreal IASD Regional Conference.  Yes!  This team is ready for another IASD Regional Conference!

By the end of the day 129 evaluation sheets had been turned in.  The consensus confirmed that the workshops and professional training sessions are of great interest to the Montreal dreamers. So perhaps that is something the organizing committee will want to consider for the next Montreal IASD Regional Conference.

Interestingly, 31% of the 256 participants had attended last year’s Montreal Conference while 69% were newcomers to this year’s Conference.
