ALSO IN THIS ISSUE
The Spring 2015 issue of IASD's DreamTime Magazine has arrived. Here is a
question for you. Have you noticed how, if you leave a copy of this magazine
on a table, people pick it up and look at it? Share.
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.

The students pictured here attend the third year at
the School of Psychotherapy of the Milan Center of Family Therapy, Italy.
The class, led by Massimo Schinco, was a lesson dedicated to the emotional
value of dreams. The students, sensitive to dreamwork, had experienced other
dream group methods, but it was their first time with the complete Ullman
Experiential Dream Group Process. They were impressed by the experience,
commenting that it was both peaceful and stimulating. As far as Massimo
knows, it is the first time that the Ullman method has been applied in a
complete form in Milan.

evidence-based scientific articles that are written for a non-research
audience in the study of dreams.

Dreams, Shamanism, & Mythology
Toronto played host to world renowned dream
researcher and psychologist Stanley Krippner for a weekend of deep
learning, sharing and exploration into our dreams, our myths, and the
Shamanic practices of indigenous cultures. More than 50 were in
attendance to hear Stan and Toronto area dream teachers Dr. Teresa
DeCicco and Rosemary Gosselin.
Shamanic cultures practice one or more of the 5 D’s
(Dreaming, Drumming, Dancing, Drugs and Deprivation) to achieve deep
altered states of integrative consciousness. Stan also taught the group
a variety of techniques for working with dreams; our own and when
working with dream groups.
The speakers break for lunch at the first New York Regional conference in Greenwich Village, hosted by Lou Hagood on April 25. Shown are Fariba Bogzaran, Robert Waggoner, Deirdre Barrett, Mike Adams, Mike Jenkins, Larry Burk & Lou Hagood.
