IASD RECEIVES 5 STAR RANKING
Recently, the Executive Committee learned that GuideStar.org (a major provider of public information on non-profits) was allowing the public and members to review and rank their experience with non-profit organizations.
The Subcommittee for Social Networking decided to act on this suggestion and set up IASD's profile on GuideStar, so that IASD can be reviewed and ranked by the public and IASD members.
So far, IASD has received a few 5 Star rankings. To visit our profile (and possibly make your own review comments about IASD), visit our profile page at http://tinyurl.com/3johzr2

This Drum Circle is free and open to the public. Along with drumming, children will be encouraged to paint "umbrellas for peace," which will be displayed in public areas in the region.
This Drum Circle is part of a global event, Drum Dance and Dream for Peace 2011, created by The World Dreams Peace Bridge. Drum Dance and Dream for Peace will provide the closing ceremony for the World Children's Festival on the National Mall in Washington, DC on June 19 and conclude with a drumming circle in the courtyard at Rolduc in Kerkrade, the Netherlands, on June 25 at the IASD Conference.
There is still time to list your drumming event. Join us in drumming and dreaming a peaceful future for the children of the world. Check out our web site, and join our FaceBook page: http://tinyurl.com/5wcwenu

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 colleagues to ads in the upcoming issues of five European publications: The Psychologist and 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.
At the forthcoming 28thannual IASD conference at Kerkrade, on Saturday June 25th a cluster of presentations has been scheduled, all of which will be dealing with dreams as a tool in pastoral care. Five Dutch pastoral theologians and a psychologist of religion, together with Pastoral Counselor, Rita Dwyer (US), will share theory, and do’s and don’ts for pastors. Participants will learn to work with dreams with a variety of populations: prisoners, parishioners, grieving individuals, and clinicians in training. A Bibliodrama workshop is also included, and at the end of the day a panel session will offer the opportunity to deepen reflections by audience and presenters alike. Both Dutch Moderators, Barbara Roukema Ph.D. and Dr. Sjaak Körver, currently are announcing this full day conference event to a variety of circles of Dutch and international pastors.

Dreamers around the world know that we are all connected in mind ... that's why people can dream together or know in a dream about something happening across the planet. The School of Metaphysics in the USA invites you to embrace our connectivity by contributing to a project designed to balance the energies of the earth.
The school is developing a Healing Wall to unify the consciousness of the planet by bringing the whole world together in one place. Students and teachers of metaphysics have built a Peace Dome on the campus of the College of Metaphysics. On the Healing Wall around the Dome, there is a relief map of the world made by 10 - 16 year-olds at a peace camp. We are asking people to contribute native stones from around the world to embed in the map. When completed, it will have the consciousness of the whole world in one place!
IASD board member, Curtiss Hoffmann counseled us last year to make sure to ask the stones for permission, to make sure they want to be included in this Healing Wall. So, please ask them before you remove them from their native habitat.
If you will be in Rolduc, bring a stone with you. Or if you won't be there, you can mail it to the School of Metaphysics World Headquarters, 163 Moon Valley Rd., Windyville, MO 65783. We want small stones, 1 - 2 inches or 2.5 - 5 cm. If you'd like to contribute one, please also bring the story ... where the stone came from, what its significance is to you or to that part of the world.
Thank you for your service to the world! You can read more about this project on the School of Metaphysics website: http://tinyurl.com/3nap7td When you get to Rolduc, there are six of us from the School of Metaphysics who will be there, so you can look for any of us to give the stones (Laurel Clark, Sheila Benjamin, Tad Messenger, Doug Bannister, Renee Curry and Jaclyn Walker). We look forward to meeting you!
Important Membership Meetings Planned for Netherlands Conference
In the tradition of recent years, the Rolduc conference will include two

representatives attending the conference, and one for members who will dine
with their regional reps.
