2015 IASD Annual International Conference, Virginia Beach:
ALSO IN THIS ISSUE
Welcome 43 New IASD Members!
Thanks to this year's conference presenters and volunteers, who work very hard for months on end . . . and think it's fun. (It's true. There are even IASD members who schedule their vacations during this online conference, in order to devote full time to the PDC.) Planning for the 2015 PsiberDreaming Conference will begin soon.
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.

Help IASD share the news about dreaming!
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.
Our thanks to all the regional reps who have been
responding to the launch of the Regional Representative Welcome pack. We
have had some great feedback, and always value the comments, so please
keep them coming. This project has been a long-standing goal of the
Regional Events Committee and we hope it serves its purpose well, which
is to support our reps in connecting with local members, advertising
activities and creating local events.
