PRESIDENT'S CORNER


Hello again,

I want to say that I have been thoroughly enjoying this year’s PsiberDreaming Conference. Many thanks to Jean Campbell and everyone responsible for making it a success.

I’m certain that most of us dreamers have had psi experiences at one time or another. There is something about the collective nature of dreaming that draws us closer together and heightens the opportunity for those experiences. The fascinating reports from the “Spirit of the Abbey” panel reminded me of another collective experience that many may not know about or remember from a conference in Santa Cruz many years ago.

During the night of the dream telepathy contest, I had a dream where men were breaking into my refrigerator. The next morning, I told this dream to a woman. She said that she also had a dream about a refrigerator that night. I later learned that the wife of one of the attendees had called to say their refrigerator had broken down. While connecting with others during the day, I heard that many more had refrigerator dreams in the night.

If you are not familiar with how the telepathy contest works, one person is selected to view the target picture and be the “sender” to the rest of us, by attempting to have a dream related to the picture that we can pick up on. Shirl Coburn, our beloved friend who served and energized the association for many years and who passed away just last year, was the sender that night. It turned out that she had a dream about a refrigerator! Her dream had nothing to do with the target picture, but several of us connected with her “transmission.”

The IASD Board of Directors always begins each of its meetings by sharing dreams. It is always interesting to see how many of the dreams of each of the directors are related and often deal with our current issues. As I said earlier, I believe the dream draws us closer together and expresses our connectivity.

If you are having any dreams about IASD and our collective mission of promoting dreams and dreaming that you would like to share with those managing the organization, you are welcome to send them to me and I will pass them on.

I invite your dreams, comments, and questions any time: roberto@asdreams.org

Wishing you the best of dreams.
Robert P. Gongloff
IASD President

LAVENDER ~ An Entwined Adventure in Science and Spirit
by Judy B. Gardiner

Lavender follows the quest of Penelope. An unexpected vehicle for higher truths, LAVENDER engages the reader in decoding dream-encrypted clues to a monolithic puzzle. A synthesis of timelessness, psychic phenomena, historical figures, quantum features, faith and geological findings, this riveting narrative ventures a deep look into the collective unconscious. LAVENDER is neither science fiction nor earthbound whodunit, but a Who Sent It cosmological conundrum. At Amazon or At CreateSpace.com/900000528


Susannah Benson recently presented three morning dream group sessions at the Spirituality, Leadership and Management (SLAM) conference in Sydney. The theme of the conference was "Wisdom at Work." It was a lovely opportunity to share with others the Wisdom of Dreams.


Dr. Massimo Schinco led a one day seminar, on September 3. at The Pari Center for New Learning, titled "Music, Sacred and Science" in which he had the opportunity to not only discuss the relationship between dreams and creativity, but also to introduce participants to IASD.


In the tradition of rock and roll dreamers like Sir Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, and others, Craig Sim Webb has just released a new song Lucid (Never Felt As Good), about dreams and inspired by a powerful dream where the chorus melody and lyrics came to him just before waking. After he fleshed out the song, a second dream involving electric guitar suggested to him the song's style as "somewhat more rock and roll" than he normally composes. Says Webb, "Thirty seconds total for both dreams yet well over a hundred hours devoted to refining and recording it so it can be shared. In this way the seeds of soul are born indeed! Good thing the Dreamweaver doesn't let on how big the tree is when the seed is offered!" Craig's song is part of IASD's PsiberDreaming conference art gallery, and available as an .mp3 for download at www.edutainer.ca/lucidsong.htm  and soon (if not already) at iTunes/Amazon.com/etc

PSIBERDREAMING 2011 STILL HAPPENING!

The reason IASD gives new members a FREE PASS to the PsiberDreaming Conference all the way to October 9 is because even though the conference concludes on that day, there are still two full weeks during which the conference will be open on a read-only basis.

And what a good read it will be this year, as lucidity in all its forms is the main subject under discussion. The audience is every bit as important as the presenters in this information-packed conversation, which ranges from scientific studies to the purely experiential.

Almost 200 people are currently attending this conference, with almost equal numbers of new IASD members (36 during September!), members of the general public, and long-time PsiberDreaming devotees. Congratulations to all who promoted this conference through Facebook and other social media (like talking with friends). It worked! This PsiberDreaming Conference has the largest attendance ever. Thanks all!

MEMBERSHIP NEWS

Spotlight on Spain
Jordi Barras Garcia, Regional Representative

Some years ago, I found the IASD while surfing the Internet. For me it was a gift to know that there was a global community of people who gave importance to dreams, because I had never found in my own country people who were really sensitive to the dream world. Although some of my acquaintances are psychologists who, like me, take into account the importance of dreams in their work, most of them had just left dreams out because dream analysis was considered a technique that, while useful, was also too complicated. It was a revelation to discover that there were other people organizing groups working with dreams, which was something I had long been doing. For me, this was the natural evolution of my first dream workshops, in which I taught the necessary guidelines for each person to work with personal dreams without assistance. Currently, I have always one or more dream circles going. Meanwhile, I regularly organize introductory workshops specifically devoted to lucid dreams. And more recently, I've started organizing dream incubation workshops.

In my clinical practice, I have never felt faithful to a specific psychotherapeutic orientation and have always felt the desire to select what I considered most valuable of them all. And that's the approach I’ve always taken with dreams, as well. If I feel it knocks on the doors of the dreamer’s soul, I'll use it. My influences are diverse (e.g. Jungian, Gestalt, transpersonal, etc.) and my desire is always to integrate the best of each of the perspectives. I endeavor to develop an intuitive method derived from the client’s own values and frame of reference. I've been interested in spreading the benefits of working with dreams for years. With this intention I started an informative project I called mondesomnis (“world of dreams”).

I have been participating in various radio and television programs. Among others, we had a series of 13 programs devoted to dreams, which airs in prime time on the main Catalan TV station. I have attended a multitude of conferences and workshops. Recently, I wrote a chapter on dreams in a book about health from different perspectives. I am also working on a book that brings together and systematizes what I've been discovering in dream work along the way. Meanwhile, I am collaborating with a well-known Spanish director to write a screenplay for a comedy in which the characters are dream circle members. I hope we'll start filming soon.

In the future, I hope to publicize the work of the IASD by organizing a regional conference in Barcelona. Until that day comes, I will continue to support IASD members and the interested public by providing lectures and workshops on request.

NEWS FROM AUSTRALIA

I am pleased to announce the formation of Dream Network Australia Inc. (DNA). We formed an association to share information, and to develop community and regional interest about dreams. We also have a goal to contribute to, and support ongoing study and research about dreams.

The DNA has been a work in progress for some time, and is the outcome of local initiative and shared interests. There has been great support and encouragement from IASD members, and I would particularly like to acknowledge the work of the members of the executive and regional committees.

It has already been a busy year, with lots of background activity and networking. The World Dreaming conference was a large event happening in Sydney in August 2011.

IASD helped sponsor an IASD event at the Conference that included Robbie Bosnak, Deirdre Barrett, other local IASD members, and Sally Gillespie and myself. Margaret Bowater, the IASD New Zealand regional representative also attended. The focus of the event was the “the current place of dreaming in psychotherapy.” The conference brought an international audience to Sydney. It was a great opportunity to bring focus to the work and activities of IASD, and to announce our first Australian regional IASD conference to be held in Sydney, April 19- 22, 2012.

Dream Network Australia is partnering with IASD to offer this event in our region. You can find out about the conference, about Dream Network Australia, how to register, and how to submit an abstract for presentation at www.dreamnetworkaustralia.com.au

We hope that you will follow us on Facebook, and look forward to welcoming you in person at the conference.

Susannah Benson
(Australian Regional IASD representative)
