Mara Zadnoff - For me, the most valuable IASD membership
benefit is not listed on the brochure – it is found in the forging of
meaningful friendships with members at IASD events around the world.
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.
MONTAGUE ULLMAN'S GROUP DREAM WORK IN POLAND
An introduction and demonstration of Montague Ullman’s work was conducted by
Judy Gardiner and Massimo Schinco on September 12, 2014 in Poland at the
University of Gdansk Interdisciplinary Conference. The title of the
conference “Memory: Forgetting and Creating” was apropos of Ullman's
memorable dedication to dreams. The workshop was well received by the
audience and participants from countries around the world.
NEW YAHOO GROUP FOCUSING ON DREAM RELATED CONTENT

audience in the study of dreams.

From Scott Sparrow
We are looking for IASD past presenters who are interested in converting
presentation(s) at the recent IASD conference or prior conferences into
online CE or non-CE courses. As you probably know, we have created an IASD
Online Course Center at
http://www.iasdreamcourses.org using the learning management system
Moodle as the platform. When you have time, please take a look at how things
are developing. If you want to take a look at how courses are set up, please
let me know and I will provide you with an enrollment key.
From Curtiss Hoffman
pleased to announce that the anonymous donor who generously provided
funding for the Student Research Award last year has graciously agreed
to provide matching funds for the 2015 competition! The IASD board of
trustees will provide the balance of funds.
In this month’s news we are announcing a one-day regional conference event, ‘DreamWork: DreamPlay’, to be held in New York on April 25, 2015 at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis in Greenwich Village. The host for this conference is Lou Hagood. Presenters include: Michael Vannoy Adams, Dr Deirdre Barrett, Fariba Bogzaran (PhD), Larry Burk MD, Lou Hagood, Michael P. Jenkins and Robert Waggoner. Full program details and online registration will soon be available on the IASD website.
As we look ahead for the next few months, November is developing into a very busy month in the Regional Calendar. The 4th IASD Montréal Regional Conference will be held on November 1, 2014. Registrations are now open via an online registration portal, www.reseaudureve.com.
On November 28-30, Toronto Regional members will be participating for a second year in the Whole Life Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which sees anywhere from 15,000 to 18,000 in attendance over the weekend. The Expo is “Canada's largest showcase of natural health, alternative medicine, and eco-friendly lifestyles with 75 speakers and over 200 exhibitors . . .” On October 25, Toronto IASD members will be participating in Ideafest in Markham, Ontario, where children and family members will be given the opportunity to draw and share their dreams.
Geoff Nelson, conference host for The “Southern California Dreams” conference which took place at Marymount California University on September 13, 2014, reports that we had a great conference, with Dr. Deirdre Barrett as our keynote speaker and twelve workshops offered throughout the day. There were six presentations that qualified for continuing education credits, a dream art display, and a sales & presenter reception at the close of the day. There were people from all parts of southern California, as well as some from the northern part of California, and from Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, and New Mexico. We were meeting on the hottest weekend of the year, but the setting gave us ocean breezes and beautiful vistas throughout the day. You can read the abstracts of the presentations on the IASD web site, the regional conferences page. All preliminary responses were positive and we had another good day of Southern California dreaming.
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR THE 4TH MONTRÉAL REGIONAL CONFERENCE
4th IASD Montréal Regional Conference will be held November 1, 2014. The
one-day, two track event, held in French, will explore the theme “Dreams at
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.
The 5th European Regional Conference. Notice of change of dates.
Notice of change of dates. The conference is now scheduled November 7-8, 2014. Early bird registration closes October 1, 2014. The conference is interdisciplinary and aims at offering a variegated reading of the most common and mysterious phenomenon of mental life – dreams and dreaming. If you didn’t get to the annual conference then this next European conference is a great opportunity to share information and connect with researchers and dream practitioners.
Nicola Zippel, conference host, reports that the Latium Psychologists Association has endorsed the conference. Such endorsements reinforce and contribute to the standing and value of the conference program on offer. We also want to acknowledge and thank IRPPI for their generous support of the conference. We wish both conference hosts and local committees very successful conference events – our thanks for all the work that has gone into hosting them.
