IASD RECEIVES 5 STAR RANKING

five star rating
 
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

Sponsored by Drums Not Guns, the Dallas Peace Center, and Umbrellas for Peace, IASD member Valley Reed has created a local drumming event on Tuesday, June 21, from 7:00-9:00p.m. at the Robert Muller Center for Living Ethics in Fairview, Texas. 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

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

rolduc small photoSocial 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 online
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.

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.


DREAMS AS A TOOL IN PASTORAL CARE

At the forthcoming 28thannual IASD conference at Kerkrade, on Sbarbara and ritaaturday 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.

HELP HEAL THE EARTH AT ROLDUC

help heal the earthDreamers 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 important membership-related lunch meetings: one for the regional representatives attending the conference, and one for members who will dine with their regional reps.

The annual meeting for the Regional Representatives will be held on Sunday, June 26 from 11:15 am to 12:45 pm in the small dining room. It will involve, in particular, planning for future regional conferences.

The annual meeting of IASD members with their respective regional reps will take place on Tuesday, June 28 from 11:15 am to 1:00 pm in the small dining room. Tables will be set up for each region, and the regional rep will be anchoring the luncheon get together.

LETTER FROM OUTGOING IASD PRESIDENT JODY GRUNDY

I have just turned the calendar page to June and will soon turn the IASD Presidency over to a new leader. At this time of transition I’d like to look back and also look forward wjody grundyith gratitude and anticipation.

It will be wonderful to see many of you in person at the IASD Conference in Rolduc, Netherlands as the IASD dream community gathers longtime members, new members and other conference participants. Those of you who will not be there in person are also very much present to us: virtually for those participating online, via dreams and through mindful awareness of all members of our global community. With over 600 members in 42 countries, and a network of 62 Regional Representatives, IASD is expanding its international presence while strengthening the community aspect of our organization through growing regional activities. In the past year the lively social media subcommittee has greatly increased IASD's visibility through Facebook, links to our website, media presentations and more. In 2011-2012 many regional conferences in Montreal; NYC and New York State; So. California; Boston, Massachusetts; Sydney, Australia; Europe and the Fall PsiberDreaming Conference give expanded opportunities for member participation and outreach to the general public. Through these avenues we are accessible in amazing new ways to dreamers around the world as never before.

This is a great time to reflect on the rich resources of IASD as we approach a 30th anniversary and envision our future. I’ve asked the leadership of IASD this question: what is your vision for IASD in the next 25 years? Now I ask you, our members, the same question. What is your “dream” vision for IASD as we look to our next decades of growth?

In this age of rapid change and communication to think in terms of years and even decades may seem presumptuous or simply not relevant. But for an organization whose focus is dreams, taking a longer and deeper view of what they convey and how they inform and affect civilization is not only relevant but critical to a world anxious about planetary survival itself while literally reaching the stars. The dreaming mind and all that emerges from its creative force reaches across time, and even some argue, to a timeless dimension. Anchoring in the timeless while time-traveling across past, present and future dimensions as dreams do, offers a unique opportunity for our community to contribute to the well-being and future of the world.

What we envision we can create. And what we dream together, literally and figuratively speaking, can bring about transformative effects through the humanizing action of deep, cross-cultural communications, through social engagement and creative work of all kinds, and through ecological stewardship as we dream with and for other sentient creatures.

Last year in my presidential address I shared a dream in which I led the IASD community through a venerable, living medicine garden into the ancient University of Padua, Italy. This “way through the medicine garden to the archetypal university” represented to me, and hopefully to some of you, the “open to all” character of the global learning environment that is IASD. The way through a medicine garden in continuous cultivation since 1545 at a university founded in 1222 captivated my attention. I had incubated this dream for IASD and for myself to discern how I might relate to the challenge of leadership during my presidency. Since then I have returned frequently to this dream for guidance, both for myself and for our community.

I believe it is an image of how IASD can be a healing & educating force in the world for its members and the larger world. My dream directed me to a unique place of learning and healing, the University of Padua, Italy and indicated I should lead the IASD community to and through this place, first through the medicine garden and then to the university itself.

I have reflected on this dream and its symbolic meaning throughout the past year and it still resonates with my personal work and our collective work for IASD. For me, and perhaps for us, this dream place symbolically represents ancient roots and traditions of healing and education and progressive forces of learning, all in one continuum at a university known as the first “free” (meaning open to all), university in Europe.

Through many centuries this ancient but new university has had remarkable “holding” and transformative power. To me this is the message for IASD: we are also a true global university rooted in ancient traditions and practices of science and humanities. We have the capacity to anchor the world in the depth dimension of dreams and propagate enlightened and future oriented practices for personal and world transformation.

Now, I invite you to imagine how you might set your intentions to dream our future and also imagine what actions you can take to honor and realize those dreams. Let us join in conversation about how we can dream our great dreams forward.

I want to thank all of the Board Directors, Executive Committee and other Committee Chairs and members, our many dedicated volunteers and our full and part-time staff for their exceptional and dedicated work. In the Executive Report for the Spring IASD Board I highlighted the fact that 23 IASD Board Members and Officers reported a cumulative tally of 158 volunteer hours spent per week, averaging 6.85 hours per person. These numbers and many more untallied volunteer hours represent the tangible commitment and productive activity that continues to create IASD. It is an honor to serve with this great team. I look forward to hearing your dreams for IASD’s future and working with you, our members, to fulfill those dreams and our educational mission in a truly global way.

Good dreams to all,

Jodine Grundy
IASD President
