IASD CELEBRATES FIRST YEAR OF DREAMTIME DIGITAL DELIVERY
In the next few weeks, IASD members will receive the Winter 2015 issue of DreamTime, now celebrating its first year of digital delivery, as well as hard copy delivery to those members who have selected that option.
Thank you for your support in this new venture. The member survey published one year ago indicated that well over half of IASD's membership liked the idea of going digital, and we have done our best to provide this.
The comment heard most frequently about DreamTime this year has been: "This is only for IASD members?" Yes, it's true. This lovely magazine is one of the perks of membership, along with out APA journal Dreaming. IASD members receive the very latest information on dream studies, applications of various techniques for working with dreams, and the creative application of dreams to waking life.
Want a friend to receive this publication? One way is to invite your dreaming friends to join us by becoming IASD members. They will enjoy IASD as much as you do.
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.
DREAM ALCHEMY CONFERENCE IN SYDNEY WAS GREAT SUCCESS
The Dream Alchemy conference organized by Dream Network Australia was held in Sydney on November 28-30, 2014 and was attended by 45 participants. It included past IASD president, Robbie Bosnak, and several IASD regional representatives. A key focus of the conference was to explore questions of change and transformation through dreamwork and imagination. The program offered dream groups, papers, workshops, art, dance, movement and films. Susan Murphy gave the opening keynote on ‘What great dream is this?’ Robbie Bosnak presented a keynote presentation on ‘Disrupting habits of consciousness—the innovative alchemy of embodied imagination’.
Susannah Benson and Diane Greig presented a joint workshop on dream alchemy
and the transpersonal perspective. Margaret Bowater, presented on action
methods in dreamwork. The art program offered multiple spaces, indoor and
outdoor, to create and discover. Participants were also invited to
contribute to creating a collective image collage of the rainbow serpent, a
powerful Australian Aboriginal symbol of creation.
In this issue, Hot Off the Press explores the new emerging science of
consciousness. The intention of this column is to publish links to
evidence-based scientific articles that are written for a non-research
audience in the study of dreams.
