Invited Presentations

Jung's Red Book, published for the first time in 2009, contains the dreams and visions Jung experienced during his famous "confrontation with the Unconscious." This presentation will examine the Red Book from several perspectives, including what it has to say about the importance of dreaming, its relation to Jung's work as a whole, and its cultural relevance in today's world. We will also look at some of the paintings that Jung created to accompany his text.

 Richard Russo is an author, artist and dream educator in Berkeley, California, where he is Associate Director of the Dream Institute of Northern California. He is Editor of Dream Time, as well as a Past President of IASD. His books include Dreams are Wiser Than Men.

Laurel McCabe, Ph.D. is a professor of Psychology at Sonoma State University, where she founded and coordinates the Master's program in Depth Psychology. She's a former Board member of IASD and host of the 2007 conference at Sonoma State. She teaches courses on dreams, psychology of religion and Jungian psychology, and has been very interested in the historical importance of the publication of Jung's Red Book.

Jung’s Red Book: Themes and Images
  Jung's Red Book, published for the first time in 2009, contains the dreams and visions Jung experienced during his famous "confrontation with the Unconscious." This presentation looks at some of the themes of the Red Book: the nature of God, good and evil, death and the ancestors, the conundrum of incarnation, the psychology of prophecy.


PsiberDreaming 2010 welcomes Scottish filmmaker Amy Hardie whose film The Edge of Dreaming won prizes at the Edinburgh Film Festival and recently premiered on the PBS series POV. Hardie has built a career making science documentaries that reflect her rational temperament. When she dreamed one night that her horse was dying, only to wake the next morning and find the horse dead, she dismissed the incident as a coincidence. Then she dreamed she would die at age 48 — only one year away. When Hardie does get ill, just as the dream predicted, she visits neuroscience experts and eventually a shaman. The Edge of Dreaming is an evocative, intimate chronicle of that year and a fascinating investigation into the human subconscious.

"The Edge of Dreaming" is currently being streamed by PBS at http://www.pbs.org/pov/edgeofdreaming/watch.php

Jean Cambell

Dreaming the Family Spirit: Intergenerational Shared Dreams

Conference Host Jean Campbell is a past President of IASD and Chair of the IASD Board from 2007-2010. Her book Group Dreaming: Dreams to the Tenth Power discusses her research in shared and mutual dreaming. She is CEO of the nonprofit, The iMAGE Project and moderator of the online group The World Dreams Peace Bridge www.worlddreamspeacebridge.org 
Several years ago, when author Jean Campbell dreamed about a shape changer named Sheena, she unexpectedly discovered that other members of her family had dreamed this same "dream character." The Sheena dreams have continued to this day, showing the dream character as evolving. This paper is an exploration of the possible meaning of this family phenomenon, and an inquiry into the family dreams of others.
Dr. Laurel Clark

That Recurring Dream House ... and the Door to Lucidity

Laurel Clark, President of the School of Metaphysics, is a teacher, interfaith minister, and intuitive counselor. As a full-time volunteer, she teaches mind skills such as concentration, meditation, visualization, and dreams. Author of the books The Law of Attraction and Other Secrets of Visualization, Dharma: Finding Your Soul’s Purpose, Karmic Healing, Concentration and numerous articles on dreams. www.som.org 
Sometimes people dream of dream houses, or dream schools, or dream buildings ... the same building in different dreams. In keeping dream journals for many years, I've noticed a particular "dream house" and a particular "dream dormitory" that recur in my dreams. Neither one is a place that is familiar in my physical waking reality; yet, they have become familiar dream locations.

An interesting progression has occurred. At first, I noticed upon awakening that I had dreamed of these places before, even though the dreams themselves were not the same. Then, I began to notice in the dream itself that the house is familiar. This was followed by dreams in which I became aware (in the dream) that the house is familiar because I have been there in previous dreams. .. and the dream becomes lucid. The house is a "doorway" to becoming aware in the dream state.

Since I have not been a frequent lucid dreamer, these dreams are particularly fascinating to me. They have opened a world of lucid dreaming that was previously uncommon in my dream life.

Upon discussing this pattern with other people, I have discovered that many people have a similar experience. The familiar house changes in the dreams as the dreamer changes his or her awareness while awake; the changing dream house also awakens the dreamer to changes occurring in his or her waking state of consciousness. From the interest generated by discussing this topic, in preparation for a presentation at this year's IASD Conference and after giving the presentation, I am considering writing book about it. So I am hoping that this year's PDC discussion will generate more ideas and knowledge for the dream community to share.
Hezekiah Condron

Behind the Scenes at THE DREAM MYSTERY: An American Teen's Search for Dream Elders (Video / Presentation)

Hezekiah Condron (USA) has studied the similarities between universal stories and individual dreams since he was born. He lives at the College of Metaphysics with his parents Barbara and Daniel, both teachers. He is studying to become a dreamologist and includes dreamwork at his website www.indigo-chef.com. Hezekiah presented THE DREAM MYSTERY: An American Teen's Search for Dream Elders at the 2010 IASD conference and became the youngest recipient of CEs. He is presently working on a new film using footage he captured this year.

Barbara Condron, DM, DD (USA) began studying dreams in the 1960s, teaching in 70s, researching in 80s, creating a national dream hotline and a website in 90s, researching global trends in 2000s. The author of over a dozen books on consciousness including How to Raise an Indigo Child, she serves as governor of international education for the School of Metaphysics where she enjoys teaching souls of all ages on campus and online at dreamschool.org.
Hezekiah Condron was 14 years old when Stanley Krippner agreed to an interview following his keynote address at the 2009 IASD Conference in Chicago. What Stanley told him changed his life. Kie went on to interview Patricia Garfield, Robert Moss, Rita Dwyer, Dale Graff, Richard Wilkerson, and ten other dream experts.

In this presentation, he finds himself in the interviewee's chair as his mother, Barbara, asks questions about where his love of films began, what inspires him, and how a dream gave him a deja vu glimpse of himself in his 40s. Clips of his interviews, some not included in the film, will be included and Kie will discuss his next film - working title The Second Life - based on new interviews filmed this year in Asheville.

His mother Barbara, and probably his father Daniel, will be onboard during the discussion to answer your questions about how to empower the kids in your life and what's it is like to mentor such a passionate soul.
Nick Cumbo

Invisible Schools

Nick Cumbo is a primary school teacher in Melbourne, Australia. He is also the creator of Sea Life (www.sealifedreams.com), a website dedicated to the community journaling and exploration of dreams.
Our dreams are a place of learning. This paper explores the prospect of "invisible schools", schools that operate from within the dream realm, and that are accessible to us each night when we sleep. Are some of us already visiting these schools unconsciously? Is it possible to do so intentionally?
Beverly D'Urso

Emotions in Dreams Leading to Self Realization (Workshop)

Dr. Beverly (Kedzierski Heart) D’Urso, an “extraordinary” lucid dreamer all her life, originally worked with Dr. Stephen LaBerge at Stanford. Numerous major magazines, such as LIFE, Smithsonian, and OMNI, television specials, books, and radio talk shows have featured her life and her dreams. Using her practical philosophy called lucid living, she has taught her own workshops and presented at conferences for decades. Working with Stanford University Professors, she completed her Masters degree in 1980, involving Cognitive Psychology, and her Ph.D. in 1983, focusing on Artificial Intelligence. Prior to working as a researcher, consultant, and a college professor, she created several startup companies. Dr. D’Urso has over fifty publications and has won several awards, often placing well in IASD dream contests. She currently follows the 'The Diamond Approach' spiritual path of A. H. Almaas.
My lucid dreaming led me to conscious lucid-living, or to what some call 'knowing the Self.' I now see how my emotional, non-lucid dreams assisted this process by helping open both my mind and my body. These dreams naturally took me to major experiences of my past, and gave me a chance to delve into my emotions in a deeper manner, while awakening to their effect on my body. I then became aware of similar painful emotional patterns receding in my daily life. Really feeling, rather than resisting, the emotions of my dreams and of my life, including the related experiences of my body, took me to an empty space where my essence could unfold. I present a workshop that focuses on the emotional experiences of dreams, with instructions that will evolve each day for both lucid and non-lucid dreamers when asleep and awake.

Joy Fatooh

Elders Between Worlds (Video/Presentation)

Since dreaming the same dream as my sister at age 11, I've been fascinated by dreams' potential to communicate by nonphysical means. I have a dual career with public lands as Wildlife Biologist and Outreach Communications Specialist: writing, illustration, graphic design, audio and video. Dream communication is a freelance avocation!  http://fatooh.org/art
I gave the short video The Message a dedication, "To all whose elders are between worlds." It's a story closely based on an actual event of apparent dream telepathy among a man in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's who "couldn't communicate at all," and three of his family members. Have you experienced dreams through which love, concern, information and understanding are shared with those who are still alive in body, yet seem so far away?

Video Game Play and Dreams: What are the Important Questions?

Grant MacEwan University's, Jayne Gackenbach, has a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology and is one of many past presidents of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. In the last 10 years she has developed an expertise on the psychology of the Internet and video game play, after over 20 years of research and professional activity in the areas of dreams. Along with numerous publications, she has four books on sleep and dreams as well as three on the psychology of the Internet. Her current research interest is in video game play and its impact on various states of consciousness including dreams.
The potential negative effects of video game play have long been studied. What is now becoming increasingly clear, is that there are various positive educational and psychological effects as well. There is no doubt that video game play represents a complex experience of childhood, and now of adulthood, which is not easily reduced to simple condemnations or accolades. Video gaming is one of the fastest growing entertainment industries with revenues arguably the same as, or greater than, the movie industry, depending on how you count. Thus, gaming is too wide spread to reduce to purely self selection. Not only is there something enticing about interacting in and with virtual worlds, there is increasing social pressure to play.
Dale Graff

When Dreamtimes Intersect

Dale E. Graff, B.S., M.S. is an internationally recognized lecturer, writer and researcher in psi topics. He is a former director of Project Stargate, the government program for research and applications of remote viewing. His books, Tracks in the Psychic Wilderness and River Dreams discuss remote viewing, psi dreaming/precognition and synchronicities. www.dalegraff.com
Occasionally dreamtimes can be shared by those who desire to experience them or by others who may have some common connection. But can our dreamtimes be accessed by strangers, or be influenced by strangers? Conscious State Psi (CSP) and Dream State Psi (DSP) experiences by colleagues, myself and others are reviewed to provide insight into this question. Synchronicity, precognition or other psi effects suggest clues as to the conditions or situations that may result in unwitting dreamtime interactions or influences. These possibilities are especially relevant when considering the dreamtime “extraction” or “influence” concepts in the recent movie, Inception.

Heidi Guttman/Teresa MacColl

Indigenous Dreaming Cultures (Video/Presentation)

Heidi Guttmann, MA, is a US filmmaker whose work has been shown at the Native Voice film festival. She holds a Master’s degree from Naropa University, concentration in Sacred Cinema. She is the President of Circle of Ancestors, a non-profit which reconnects people with their own ancestral traditions.

Teresa MacColl, MA, is a cultural practitioner with a masters degree in Indigenous Mind from Naropa University. Teresa is also an ancestral dream coach, helping people learn how to understand and interpret dream messages from their ancestors and the spiritual world, and also teaching students to study and observe the way lunar, solar, and planetary cycles influence dreams.
Indigenous Dreaming Cultures is a work-in-progress story of how Hawaiians, Native Americans and cultures all over the world view their dreams, via interviews with elders as well as students. Using new ethnography methods to intertwine what dreamers learn along the way, this film will not just document a culture's ancient wisdom about dreams, but demonstrate its use and relevance to all dreamers living in modern cultures.
Louis Hagood

Who is the Dreamer Who Dreams the Dream?

Louis Hagood, PhD is a licensed psychoanalyst who does dream play face-to-face or via email. His book Midlife at the Oasis: Dreaming the Second Half of Life was published in 2002.
Abstract: In 2000, one-hundred years after Freud's "The Interpretation of Dreams," James Grotstein published, "Who is the Dreamer Who Dreams the Dream," which is simply the best Psychoanalytic book on dreams since Freud. The book explores mystical and quantum realms that were unavailable to Freud, and are considered in this thread.

Tony Hawkins

The Infinite Nature of Dreams

Tony Hawkins is a writer who lives in London.
In reexamining the story of Elias Howe and the dream which led to the sewing machine, I try to show that his dream is rooted in a timeless dimension of supernormal intelligence. I believe this dimension, which I call the infinite, is the root of everything, including dreams. I suspect it is the root of all dreams. This may not be so, but if true it would provide a fundamental key to their understanding.
Velva Lee Heraty

Mainstreaming a Psi Dream

Velva Lee Heraty is a Jungian Depth Psychotherapist practicing in Chicago, IL and St. Petersburg, FL. As Dream Momma she blogs on dreams for Creative Loafing Publications. Velva has just completed her book,The Dream Belongs to the Dreamer, a hands-on, how-to book designed to introduce dream work to the mainstream through a process called Subjective Symbol Immersion Method or SSIM.
The art of bringing dreamwork to the mainstream is an ongoing challenge. This presentation will demonstrate a method of examining and expanding a dream fragment so that the average layperson can work successfully with their dreams, help others with their dreams, and participate in a volunteer dream group. The ultimate goal is to bring familiarity of dreamwork mainstream as a portal to more sophisticated methodology.

Curtiss Hoffman

There Are Fairies at the Bottom of My Consciousness: Who Are They and What Are They Doing There?

Dr. Curtiss Hoffman is professor of Anthropology at Bridgewater State University, specializing in the archaeology of northeastern North
America, mythology, and the anthropology of consciousness. He serves on the IASD Board and was Program Chair for the annual conference in 2009 and 2010. Along with Dolores Nurss, he is co-host of the Outer Inn for the annual IASD Psiberdreaming Conference.
In our dreaming, we sometimes encounter the presence of the “other” – beings who are clearly not exactly human, even though they may somewhat resemble humans. Traditions of these encounters are found in cultures all over the world. I will propose some ideas about how to fit these “others” (variously called Faerie, Nature Spirits, Devas, or Pukwudjis) into a model of consciousness.
Robert J. Hoss

Self-Inception: The Architect Within

Bob Hoss M.S. is author of Dream Language, IASD Treasurer and Past President, and Dream Science Foundation Director for funding research grants. A scientist with Gestalt training, he has taught dreamwork for 30 years, and is on the faculty of the Haden Institute. Bob hosted the IASD Dream Time radio series. www.dreamscience.org 
Although Hollywood may have staged the players in the film Inception as outside forces, and stretched the nature of their roles much as they stretched time, our dreams do indeed contain many of the elements of Inception. However, our nightly dreams tend toward a natural inception where we venture into our own unconscious to engage with our own inner “projections,” guided by our own "architect within," which in a sense designs our dreams to follow a natural tendency toward mental well-being.

Ed Kellogg

Developing Dream Psi Abilities (Workshop)

Once again for the 2010 PsiberDreaming Conference, Conference Contest Facilitator Ed Kellogg will present a workshop coordinating all of the conference contests. Participants in this Workshop will have the opportunity to do more than participate in the contests for fun; they can do so as part of a coordinated, online dream-psi intensive training.

Enjoy testing your psi dreaming skills and win great prizes at three exciting PsiberDreaming Contests

Mary Pat Lynch

The Astrology of Dreaming (Workshop)

Mary Pat Lynch is exploring new ways to integrate dreamwork with other intuitive languages like shamanic practice, the Tarot and astrology. An active IASD member, and presenter at PsiberDreaming and Annual conferences, you can see her current projects at ThreeCauldrons (http://threecauldrons.com) and Rising Moon Astrology (http://risingmoonastrology.blogspot.com).
We live in a time of great change, reflected in our lives and also in the heavens. Powerful planets form unusual patterns we won't see again in our lifetime, or many lifetimes to come. As strong dreamers, the energy shifts can show up in our nighttime journeys and visitations.

This year's conference happens under a waning Moon, culminating in the New Moon in Libra on October 7. Other influential transits will also occur during this time. How will our dreams reflect these movements of the planets?

This workshop dives into the connection between dreams and astrology. We'll discuss where to look in the birth chart for insights into the dreaming self, and how to work with transiting planets to incubate dreams and gain a new context for working with them. Focusing on the Moon, and outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, we'll experiment with incubating dreams aligned with these energies, and share our results. No experience with astrology is needed to participate.

Linda Lane Magallón, M.B.A

A Dream Is What You See: The Special Effects of the State of Sleep

Linda’s field research in the world of sleep stems from an encounter with a dream character who appeared in her first lucid dream and, later, in the dreams of other members of the dreaming community.  She authored Mutual Dreaming after creating numerous waking and dreaming projects (Fly-By-Night Club research group, Bay Area Dreamworkers Group and Seth Dream Network, among many others). Dreams, articles and presentations can be found at her web site, dreamflyer.net. (http://www.dreamflyer.net)

The movie Inception presents an interesting quandary. Is a dream totally self-created or can it be shaped and inhabited by fellow humans? Although we have no ultimate answers yet, we now have some tools for the detective hunt. It helps to think of the dream as a virtual reality, enhanced with mild or wild special effects. The very nature of the altered state of sleep allows even our dream bodies to morph away from standard physical appearance and behavior. Nevertheless, a perceptive dream contains clues that will link an avatar with its hidden human influence. We can identify the person behind the costume if we train ourselves to detect the analogous structure of perception that has been revealed through stimulus-response research and backed with a neurological understanding of the visual system. When a dream is what you see, what you see isn’t always what you get.
Sandra Olliges

Thought Forms in Dreams and Shamanic Visions

Sandy Olliges is currently enrolled in the Dream Studies certificate program at Saybrook University, where she graduated with an MA in Human Science in 2008. Sandy has completed six years of intensive work in cross-cultural shamanism at the Flight of the Hawk in Half Moon Bay, California, and has several years experience in providing shamanic counseling and divination. She is interested in the intersection of shamanism and dream work. Having taught Aikido since 1987 and Yoga since 1991, Sandy currently teaches Aikido at San Jose State University and Yoga in Sunnyvale, California. Recently retired from a 20-year career in Environmental Management, she continues to offer Environmental consulting, enjoys hiking and camping, and loves spending time with her granddaughter. 

Drawing on the techniques of developing transformative imagery through shamanic visions and dreams (Feinstein & Krippner, 2006); and on the Theosophical methods of interpretation of astral thought-forms (Besant & Leadbeater, 1999), I dreamed an image of one of my habitual thought patterns. Becoming aware of one's habitual thought patterns is a way to increase authenticity, and by dissolving the thought pattern one can release energy for creativity. Through the process of focused shamanic journeys and dream incubation I dreamed the thought-form, had a vision of how to transform it, and then had two subsequent dreams of the thought-form. In the third dream, I was releasing it. This is a powerful method of self-awareness and transformation.
Bobbie Ann Pimm

Dream Journaling: Your Guide to Discovering the stuff YOUR dreams are made on

Bobbie Ann Pimm is author of, Notes From a Dreamer … on Dreaming: A Personal Journey in Dream Interpretation. This workshop, and (hopefully) her next book, is born from working with Bob Van de Castle on a revision of his book, Our Dreaming Mind, and her continuing exploration into the world of her dreams.
Every dream is unique – a hodgepodge of the daily and life experiences, thoughts, actions and reactions of each unique dreamer. Your dreams reflect who you are (the stuff that dreams are made on) but they are also directions leading you to be the best (and happiest) you can be. If your dreams provide the directions, then your dream journal is your map – starting with where you’ve already been and pointing you to where you are going and your highest potential.

There is no right or wrong way to journal. Different dreamwork techniques require different aspects and details of the dream be recorded, examined and acted upon. In this workshop/discussion, we will explore different formats and techniques for dream journaling – some simple, others more detailed, and still others for specific dreams, including dream incubation, lucid and precognitive dreaming. Each can shed new light -- even on old dreams.

Sharing of ideas and techniques between participants is highly encouraged.
Donadrian Rice

Archetypal Neurons in Dreams

Donadrian (Don) Rice, Ph.D. is chair of psychology at the University of West Georgia, where he teaches courses on the Psychology of Dreams, Mind/body psychology, clinical hypnosis, and neuroscience. In the late sixties and early seventies, Don worked as an assistant to Stanley Krippner at the Maimonides medical center dream Laboratory in Brooklyn, NY where the research focus was on Dream Telepathy.
Current research findings in neuroscience continue to point to the fact, that long-term explicit and implicit memory is created by neuro-chemical processes that consolidate during the dreaming stage of sleep. Too, it is established that the experience of learning is accompanied by synapto-genesis: the creation of new neuronal pathways. This paper proposes that consolidated memories provide the bases for the thematic structure of dreams that play out in the individual’s waking and dreaming life. These neuronal pathways become “archetypal” because they now provide the template for how one incorporates new experiences and maintains past experiences. This has implications for using the dreaming process to incorporate emotional regulation to therapeutic situations ranging from conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder to personal growth. I will elaborate on this theory and give examples of how this leads to a better understanding of personality development and therapeutic effectiveness.
Massimo Schinco

Matter is Such Stuff as Dreams are Made On

Massimo Schinco, Psychoterapist, lives in Italy. He teaches in the Milan Centre of Family Therapy and in the Conservatorio Ghedini, Cuneo. As an author he focuses on creative change and is frequently called upon as a speaker and lecturer. Massimo is an IASD Member who presented at PDC 2008 and at the IASD International Conference in 2010.
Every day we experience the continuity existing between the material aspects of our lives and the state of our individual and collective minds. One of the major obstacles to a full scientific acknowledgement of this reality is the lack of a good theory fitting with the data coming from research (Radin, 1997).

On the still long pathway to such a theory, a valuable help can be provided by fully considering mind as a “dreaming mind” (Van De Castle, 1994.) whose boundaries have fractal peculiarities (Abraham, 1998). Overlapping these features to the “subtle film’s” metaphor that Henri Bergson (1938) used to summarize George Berkley’s theory on existence as perception (1710), we get a conceptually simple frame where data coming from dreamworking, clinics, research and anecdotal make sense, helping to step forward and surmount the rigid dualism between matter and mind that still characterize not only science but western culture in general.
Gloria Sturzenacker

Reality Check Workshop: Critical Thinking for Psi Dreamers

Gloria Sturzenacker is an editor, writer, and graphic artist living in New York City. She has a certificate in teaching critical thinking from Pace University and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism. At the 2005 PDC, she presented a paper titled “Does Scientific Honesty Still Require Skepticism About Psi?”
Experiencing psi in our dreams invites us into a realm of new possibilities, powers, and potential dangers. It’s a good idea to keep our wits about us—as we follow where psi dreams lead us, as well as in evaluating what’s psi about any particular dream. Clear, well-grounded thinking can improve our ability to recognize psi information accurately, use it wisely, and discuss it credibly. This workshop aims to sharpen the skills of inquiry and discernment through some basic thought exercises. It builds on the framework Gloria presented in her critical thinking paper during the 2007 PDC—but you don’t need to have participated in that session to join this one.
Jaelynne Tolman

Beautiful Dreams of Cancer

Jaelynne Tolman has actively studied dreams since 2003, but her interest began years ago as a literature and language student. She holds a dream facilitator certificate from the Marin Institute of Projective Dreamwork and is currently the back-up moderator for the online Dreamwheel Forum. She and her husband have a ten-year-old daughter.
In May of this year I was diagnosed with stage four metastatic colon cancer that has spread to my liver and bones. While the diagnosis is devastating, my dreams have been exceptionally encouraging and beautiful, indicating that many years lie ahead and that I will discover new talents as a result of this violent "gift."

The paper will examine:
*my precognitive dreams about the cancer (including one predicting my sister's current battle with uterine cancer and our mutual support of each other)
*advice the dreams gave me before and after diagnosis (including being my own surgeon, following my instincts, and looking for help outside the confines of Western medicine)
*the useful counsel from a group dream incubation regarding my health (including diet change, detoxification, and acupuncture)
*the hope and faith the dreams have given me that I might otherwise not feel.

The paper will ask:
*for others to share similar experiences where hope was given through dreams despite overwhelming physical odds
*for people to project further on my own dreams' wisdom and perhaps offer insights I may have missed.
