June 16 – 20, 2017
- Call for Presentations
Submission Deadline 15 December 2016
- Call for Artwork Submission Deadline 15 February 2017
The Venue • The Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove, 12021 Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92840. The venue next year is in a perfect location for attendees who want to arrive or stay over a few days to vacation in southern California or visit the exciting attractions nearby. The hotel is 2.2 miles from Disneyland® park, 9 miles from Knott’s Berry Farm and 18 miles from the beaches. It is accessible from the LAX international airport or the John Wayne Airport (Orange County). We have negotiated the same discount rate for 3 days before and after the conference for attendees who want to take advantage of the local attractions.
For the past ten years or more, IASD has been providing major incentives to dreamers by way of The Ernest Hartmann Student Awards, the IASD Dream Research Awards, and the Nancy R. Brzeski Art Awards.
The funding for these programs has come from IASD members just like you, donating through our annual Pledge Drive. This year, however, funds to support these programs have reached a dangerous low, as funders move on or financial situations change.
Would you like to help us save and maintain these dynamic, important programs? Annual Pledge Drive begins now!
Dreaming is a natural human experience, nature’s way to restore psychological balance. Dreams inspire invention and creative expression and evoke deeply personal spiritual experiences. This conference explores dreaming from diverse perspectives — from neuroscience to psychology to spirituality to arts and culture. We hope to inform and inspire dreamers of all ages and backgrounds, as well as those who use dreams in their work, such as therapists, pastors, artists, writers, musicians, and medical practitioners.
