DESCENT INTO DREAMS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA:
NORTH OF EDEN RETREAT – OCTOBER 12-17

North of Eden founders Marc Bregman and Christa Lancaster will present a five-day intensive retreat at the beautiful Hollyhock Retreat Center on Cortes Island in British Columbia, October 12-17. In the presence of the ocean’s rhythms, among the mysterious ancient cedars, and with spectacular views of the coastal mountain ranges, Hollyhock is Canada’s leading center for lifelong learning, well-being, and spiritual growth. It offers an ideal backdrop for a deep and intimate journey into the power and the mystery of the archetypal realm of dreams.

Participants at this retreat will have the opportunity to descend into the archetypal realm of dreams in a deep, visceral form of group enactment called String Work. This lively engagement with dreams, developed by Marc Bregman and Christa Lancaster, brings unconscious elements to light, allowing the dreams to be felt in the body and encouraging each person to descend into the archetypal realm where old hurt or trauma may be buried.

Join us for the adventure of a lifetime. For more information about this retreat and about Archetypal Dreamwork: www.northofeden.com

JAPAN UPDATE

Naoatsu Aoyama, a journalist from the Japanese national paper The Asahi Shinbun, published a feature on dreams on Sunday, August 5. Under the title “Captivated by Dreams,” he talked about diverse dream-related topics: lucid dreams, dreams and literature, neuroscience of dreams, dreams and REM sleep, types of dreams, dreams and films, REM behavior disorder, dream analysis, dreams and community building, and dreams and the recent earthquakes.

The journalist joined a Stephen LaBerge workshop on lucid dreaming during which he had a lucid dream. However he remained skeptical about the effects of lucid dream practice on self-growth.

Most notably he reported two dreams that occurred after the disastrous earthquakes and tsunamis that hit the Northeastern coast of Japan last year. Both depicted corpses, but one was disturbing and the other was comforting.
During the Berkeley conference, he uttered that this special issue would be “the first and last” of its kind. I strongly wish otherwise, because the membership in Japan has been growing. This year we went from three original members to six members, basically doubling in number. Hopefully this trend continues and many good dreamers in Japan will be enlightened by IASD.

MEMBERS OUT AND ABOUT

"I'M A DREAMER" LAPEL PINS

 

Two dream workers, Terry Anderson and Jeremy Taylor, came up with the idea for wordless “I'm a Dreamer” lapel pins to give away to active dreamers to help them recognize one another at large gatherings, and to celebrate the burgeoning movement of diverse people involved with the various contemporary practices of exploring dreams and dreaming in “dream groups” involving other people. The final result is an elegant cloisonné oval, an inch across at the widest point, depicting an open eye in the center of a golden spiral on a purple background, symbolizing that the wearer is a person who pays regular attention to his/her dreams, as well as the dreams of other people.

The first 300 of these stylish little pins have already been manufactured and are now being distributed free within networks of dreamers on the West Coast of the U.S. and Canada, the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State, central New Hampshire, and also in Seoul, Korea.

The manufacturer, PinDepot, of Oviedo, Florida, does not sell the pins in lots any smaller than 100. All people interested in this culture-building effort are welcome to purchase pins in batches of 100 or more and start distributing them. The best way to do this is to call PinDepot on their toll-free line – 800-803-2879 – and ask for the pin by name: “I'm a Dreamer”. And, of course, people are also welcome to make their own pins, copying this initial design, or modifying it to suit the needs and desires of different groups of dreamers and dream workers.

MEMBERSHIP NEWS AUGUST 2012

From David L. Kahn, Minnesota, U.S.

Some of my earliest life memories are dreams. It wasn’t until my teen years that I learned not everyone recalls dreams nightly. It was during those same years that I began to have lucid dreams, which led to reading books by Stephen LaBerge and further expanding my overall interest in dreams. I have kept a dream journal for many years. Notes I took about my dreams eventually took form and turned into articles and a book, and through a series of synchronicities led me to IASD.

My business experience combined with my interest in dreams has brought me to the Treasurer’s position with IASD, as well as some other projects. Database design is an area of business that I have been involved with for years, and recently I have partnered with another programmer to develop an internet-based dreamwork program for professional use. The database will be designed mainly for therapists, with patients having the ability to enter or edit his or her dreams. The program is functional with different interpretation techniques and is designed mostly to easily enter, track, sort, and categorize dreams and aspects of dreams such as characters, locations, actions or objects. Groups of dreams can then be filtered to find trends and meanings.

I look forward to my continued work with IASD and to living the dream each day.

REGIONAL NEWS YOU CAN USE

It is a bittersweet task to give you the news that I am leaving as Regional Committee Chair for IASD. As you know, our regional development has flourished in the past several years building on the contributions of many who preceded me and the formation of the Regional Reps network, now 66 strong. Our regional conferences have been remarkably successful and have encouraged growth in membership and enhanced international presence. I trust that these activities can and will continue, and I invite members of the Regional Reps network and other IASD members to consider how you might contribute your initiative and leadership to the next chapter in our regional development. So, it is hard to say goodbye, but also good to celebrate the fulfillment of our dreams of a truly global IASD presence in diverse geographic locales.

I want to share with you my letter to the Board and Management Team of IASD:

Dear IASD Board of Directors,

Please receive my resignation as Regional Committee Chair of IASD. It is with regret and sadness that I tender this resignation as the regional development of IASD has been and is of great import to me as it is to our whole organization. A complex set of organizational and personal factors have necessitated my stepping down from this position at this time.

I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to serve IASD and feel proud of the work that has been accomplished in the regional development of this organization and the other areas in which I have served. Many have contributed to these successes and I trust that new leadership will emerge from the strong Regional Reps network and other arenas of IASD to further the regional and global visions for IASD.

Best wishes,

Jodine Grundy
IASD Regional Chair
August 30, 2012

Going Forward

For the near term, let’s focus on these outstanding current regional events and read about them in this column:

• Upcoming Bern, Switzerland Conference, Daniel Erlacher, host
• Recent Melbourne, Australia event showcasing collaboration of
Australia & New Zealand, Ilana Laps (AU) Margaret Bowater (NZ)
• Toronto Quarterly Regional, Sept. 23, 2012, Mara Zadnoff, host.
• Boston Regional at Regis College, January 2013, Curt Hoffmann, host,
• Montreal, CA: Colloque Reve III, April 2013. Claude Desloges, host.

For the future I leave these “seeds” shared and planted at the Berkeley Conference that hopefully will be tended & reaped by the IASD community, especially by the Regional Reps network.

• Develop webinars & other forms of teleconferencing or Skype to bring international presenters into regional events without the cost of physical travel.
• Engage seasoned regional hosts to consult with and train new hosts on regional program planning.
• Form “sister regions”: pair two or more regions for exchange, mutual support & development.
• Create info and training video on regionals.

Melbourne, Australia & Auckland, New Zealand Regional Collaboration
“Dreams in Action with Margaret Bowater” August 2012
Host: Ilana Laps, Presenter: Margaret Bowater

“Learning from Unexpected Guests - how a dream led to regional cooperation.”

It’s not about massacre”, my friend reassures me, as Hitler strides towards me down a narrow corridor, “It’s about myth.”

And then I wake up. A few hours later, I share my dream in a workshop with Margaret Bowater as part of “Healing Pathways: Dreams & Imagination”, Australasia’s very first conference on dreams. Needless to say, the room falls silent. I’ve pulled the Hitler card.

“Well,” says Margaret carefully, after inviting me to draw my dream on a whiteboard, “how would you feel about . . . embodying Hitler?”

And isn’t that just the thing with dream work? One moment I’m eating cereal with colleagues, the next I’m embodying the most shameful and terrifying man in my ancestral history.

And strangely, he was very polite. “You don’t have to call me Sir”, he said. “I’m just a man.” He’d come to warn me, he told Margaret, who was interviewing him with her unique and skillful blend of Psychodrama and Gestalt techniques, about the dangers of archetypal power, about the potential for corruption, exploitation, and for that dreaded phenomena in dream circles everywhere: inflation.

The dream was as poignant a warning for me as it was for everyone in the group. Margaret and I had worked together for only half-an-hour, but we all felt somehow bonded to after that.

Margaret is New Zealand’s representative to IASD and I am the representative for Melbourne, AU. I immediately invited her to Melbourne to train practitioners in my community to work dynamically with dreams. She agreed, and several months later I was hosting Dream Lab’s first international guest speaker in my home.

“Dreams in Action with Margaret Bowater” was a sold-out weekend intensive for professionals and experienced dreamers. Educators, counsellors and dedicated dreamers came to learn from Margaret’s decades of experience, and try her techniques themselves. Trauma revealed through dreams was a powerful topic, as were paranormal experiences and unconscious ancestral inheritance.

I’m a psychotherapist in private practice, and the week after Margaret’s workshop a new client arrived wanting a private dream consultation. Little did she know that within an hour both she and I would be on our knees embodying a dream dog who had stuck its muzzle into her ear. “My god,” she said, after I’d interviewed the dog and we’d returned to two legs. “That dog, it’s me. I had no idea I felt like that.”

And I knew exactly how she felt. Because I also had no idea I felt like that about the archetypal symbols which fill my dream journals. My dream of Hitler was an instant teaching in humility and conscious boundaries.

Moreover, my dream was a reminder that if we let them, our dreams are keen on bringing us back into community. My dream bonded me not only with a group in Sydney, but created an ancient tie between Margaret and I, which has now spread its gifts through the Dream Lab community in Melbourne.

No matter who or what visits you in your dreams, if you can bear it, give it chance to speak. From one dream respectfully handled, hundreds of people can benefit.

By Ilana Laps, Psychotherapist & Founder, Dream Lab
Regional Representative, Melbourne, Australia

New England, USA Regional: “The Creative Power of Dreams”

FARIBA AND DANIEL ENCHANT MONTREAL DREAMERS

Following their presentation on INTEGRAL DREAMING at the Berkeley Conference, Fariba Bogzaran and Daniel Deslauriers were enthusiastically invited to make a presentation in French in Montreal. Having already planned a summer family visit to Montreal, they generously accepted.

The event was held on August 6 and hosted jointly by the IASD Quebec Regional Committee and L’Arc-en-ciel. There were 64 registrations within just a few days and many were attending an IASD conference for the first time.

Fariba and Daniel presented highlights from their recently published book, Integral Dreaming, putting forward a holistic vision of dreams. Joining science with depth psychology, they described dreaming as an integrative and purposeful state of consciousness, poised at the boundary between self, community, and the natural world, proposing a way of being with dreams that fosters creative expression and insights, and the cultivation of awareness. The question period was lively and the enthusiasm palpable.

The organizers of this event are most grateful to Fariba and Daniel for making space during their vacation to present their workshop to the French speaking dream community of Québec.

The next IASD Montreal Annual Conference is scheduled for Saturday, 13 April 2013.
