Dear Friends of IASD,
We dreamers have an innate knowing that through the dream we are a
family. We feel this close connection at conferences (online and
face-to-face), in our Facebook and Twitter interfaces, and sometimes
even in meetings in the dream-state!
Brain at Night: Scientific Foundations of Precognitive Dreams by Fernando de Pablos, M.D. offers a thorough investigation into precognitive dreams.
Fernando argues that precognitive dreams can be demonstrated experimentally
with adequate designs. His book offers an overview of the history of
precognitive dreams, the neurobiology of dreaming, the application of
artificial intelligence philosophy and computational linguistics to examine
dream structure. The book is available in both English and Spanish. The
Spanish version can be purchased at
HearDr. Marcia Emery on her radio program The Partnership of Intuition and Dreams Thursdays, at 5pm (PT) or 8pm (ET) on Voice America, 7th Wave Channel.

I invite IASD members, and anyone interested in dreams, to visit the Sleep and Dream Database, a website I’ve created to promote empirical dream researchhttp://sleepanddreamdatabase.org
It’s free, open-access, and designed to make word-searching a more precise tool for the study of dreams. The site is still a work in progress with much to be improved, but I feel it has reached a point where I want to share it with colleagues for their comments and feedback.
Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D.
Boss Hoss was invited to give a lecture for the "Spirit of the Senses" Salon organization in Phoenix, Arizona on the Neuroscience of Dreaming. Around 55 people attended. Reports are it went spectacularly well with a lot of attendees asking for more information on dreams. Ever prepared, Bob distributed about 60 IASD brochures to an enthusiastic crowd..
An abundance of worldwide gifts filled the Global
Peace Dream Basket won on December 1st by award-winning Colorado dream
artist, Brenda Ferrimani.

CONFERENCE UPDATES Don't miss out on the annual IASD conference as we go SALING ON THE SEA OF DREAMS at the Doubletree Hotel at the Berkeley Marina, Berkeley, California. This 29th Annual IASD Conference promises to be memorable. There will be three world-renowned keynote speakers, over 150 presenters from around the globe plus a chance to network or relax at our many evening receptions and social events including the dream art exhibition, the costume Dream Ball, the annual Dream Telepathy Contest, a dream hike along the Bay, and a sunset sail on the “sea of dreams” - a special dessert cruise of the San Francisco Bay.
The outstanding keynoters are: Patricia Garfield, Ph.D. is a pioneer and renowned expert in the study of dreams. She is a prize-winning author of eleven books on dreams. Her first bestseller Creative Dreaming (1974) is considered a classic. Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D. aka Dr. Quantum (TM) is a world-renowned physicist, writer and lecturer who also conducts research on the relationship of quantum physics to consciousness. He is the author of 13 books and 3 CD courses. Tracey Kahan, Ph.D. is a full-time faculty member of the Psychology Department at Santa Clara University. Research conducted by Dr. Kahan and her colleagues has shown that waking and dreaming, especially REM dreaming, are more similar than different. Watch the website for our exciting lineup of featured speakers as well, who are soon to be announced.
