Spotlight on Alaska, USA
Jody Grundy has asked me to be the Alaska
regional rep. Since I am apparently the only IASD member
residing here, my goal is to double the membership this year. (I
feel blessed that Alaska found me more than thirty years ago;
the archetypes feel very close by, particularly with much less
noise and interference from civilization.)
From Membership Chair, Diane Rickards
Thank you to Stephen Parker for
contributing to the membership column this month, and for
working toward doubling membership in Alaska this year! Stephen
will be presenting at the IASD International Conference in June,
contributing to the dream and art panel.
To volunteer to become a regional rep, contact Jodine Grundy, firstname.lastname@example.org

“A Day of Dreaming” Southern California Momentum: April 21, 2012
The Southern California Regional Committee of the IASD is keeping the momentum going for dreaming in our area. After two successful Regional events, in April of 2008 and September of 2011, we are holding a small event on Saturday morning, April 21, 2012. With three workshops and a panel discussion, we are offering “A Day of Dreams” to those in the area who have shown interest in our previous events. Our goal is to build the dreaming community here in our area and spread the good news of the IASD. We are considering another full day regional conference in 2013. We trust that occasional small events like this one on April 21 will maintain and build interest in opportunities for dream work in Southern California. See program details on our Southern California Dreamers IASD webpage here: http://asdreams.org/2012la/index.htm
