DREAMS THAT CHANGE OUR LIVES WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL YOUR STORY?
Have you had a life changing
dream? Would you like to share it so that others may appreciate the source
of inner wisdom that lies within our dreams? In IASD we support dreaming as
an important part of our growth, healing and learning process and we wish to
illustrate that concept with stories from those who have experienced life
changing insight and guidance from their dreams first hand. IASD is
therefore planning on publishing a book of dream stories and lessons by
those who have experienced life altering changes that were initiated by a
dream – and we would love to hear your story.

year’s PsiberDreaming Conference theme is “Dreaming With the Other.” We
encourage dreamers to share their artwork based on dream experiences
that reveal “the other” within themselves, or perhaps dreams that
suggest contact or collaboration with an unknown other. What forms have
you or another taken in your dreams? Have you traveled through time, or
met someone from “the other side”? What does the theme mean to you?
Explore the mystery of dreams that appear to escape personal boundaries
or conscious waking knowledge.

using dreams in addiction recovery, in PTSD work, dreams and hypnosis,

all Ages.” The conference will feature keynote speaker Claire Pimparé, a
well known Québec comedian, television and radio host. Ten presenters and
workshop leaders, including five IASD members, will follow her to explore
dreams throughout the various stages of life, from newborn to childhood,
through the tumultuous years of adolescence maturing into adulthood and
ripening in the days of the elderly. Women’s dreams in the autumn of their
lives will be harvested, the powerful messages of nightmares will be
listened to, and a soothing balm will be extracted from dreams to take care
of sorrow at the time of losses.
