Annual Pledge Drive

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!
Southern Dreaming Regional Conference

Dreaming is a natural human experience, natures 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.
