THE BUTTERFLY WOMAN: AN ARCHTYPAL IMAGE IN A MYTHOLOGICAL DREAM
A lecture by Michael Vannoy Adams of New York

Fri., April 18, 7:30 - 10:00 P.M.
Dawson College Amphitheatre, Room 4C.1
4001 de Maisonneuve W. (Atwater Metro)
Montréal, Quebec, Canada

In this lecture, Michael Vannoy Adams will present the case of “The Butterfly Woman,” which includes an interpretation of the very first dream of a woman in analysis. The dream features an archetypal image – a butterfly. Because a butterfly experiences a metamorphosis, it is one of the most important archetypal images of the transformation of the psyche. In this mythological dream, the butterfly is “stuck.” This case demonstrates that, when the psyche is stuck, it may get unstuck.

“Mythological dreams” are dreams that emerge from what Adams calls the “mythological unconscious.” We will interpret and discuss mythological dreams that feature two of the most important archetypal images – the “journey” and the “monster.” The workshop will demonstrate how archetypal images from the unconscious offer valuable alternative perspectives in an effort to compensate the partial, prejudicial, maladaptive, and dysfunctional attitudes of the ego.

Michael Vannoy Adams, D.Phil., L.C.S.W., is a Jungian psychoanalyst in New York City. He is the author of three books: The Fantasy Principle: Psychoanalysis of the Imagination (2004), The Mythological Unconscious (2001), and The Multicultural Imagination: “Race,” Color, and the Unconscious (1996). He is a clinical associate professor at the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. He is also a faculty member at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association, the Object Relations Institute, and the New School, where he was previously associate provost. He is the recipient of three Gradiva Awards from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. He has been a Marshall scholar in England and a Fulbright senior lecturer in India.

DREAM INSTITUTE OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA: APRIL EVENTS FEATURE IASD MEMBERS

“Dreaming the Earth,” an Earth day celebration, will be held on Sunday, April 20, at the JFK University Arts Annex in Berkeley. The program, co-sponsored by the Dream Institute of Northern California and the JFKU School of Holistic Studies, features several IASD members, starting with a panel discussion on “Environmental Awareness through Dreams” with Meredith Sabini, Kelly Bulkeley, and Marilyn Fowler, to be followed by a new dream play, “The Earth is Humming,” directed by Richard Russo.

Sabini and Russo, the co-directors of the Dream Institute, are also initiating a new program, the Community Dream Council, on Fri. night, April 11. Modeled after shamanic cultures, this monthly meeting will provide an opportunity for members of the community to come together to share and discuss “big” dreams about current events, the culture, and other transpersonal aspects of their dreaming.

Electronic Voting Consent Forms Sent/Please Return Immediately!

As part of its work to bring the IASD corporate Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation into compliance with California State law, IASD recently mailed to all members a Consent to Electronic Voting form, which should have arrived in your mailbox in the past week or two.

Note: Not returning the form does not mean you cannot vote in the upcoming IASD Board elections. Voting will begin on April 18. However, unless your consent form is on file at the IASD office, you will need to use the paper ballot which will be available in the next issue of Dream Time. You cannot vote online unless you have returned your signed and dated form.

Electronic voting consent forms need only be signed once. They will be kept on file at the IASD office. But in order to vote electronically in any formal IASD vote (including Board votes) the form must be signed and on file. Thank you for your help in this.

A full explanation of the changes in the IASD bylaws, which will be ratified by the IASD membership at the membership meeting at the Montreal conference this summer, has been written by IASD President and Chair of the Bylaws Committee, David Kahn. This article, with the headline, "Even a Dream Organization must be compliant with the laws of the awake world" can be read online and will appear in the Spring issue of IASD's Dream Time magazine, begins:

Why we revised the IASD Bylaws:

IASD is incorporated as a nonprofit public benefit corporation in the state of California within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (3) of the internal Revenue Code. Our current Bylaws were examined by an attorney specializing in nonprofit corporations incorporated in California, and found to be non-compliant with several provisions of California law. The attorney worked closely with the IASD Bylaws Committee to create Bylaws that both reflect the principles and ethics of IASD and are compliant with California law. The revised Bylaws may be found on our website using the link: http://asdreams.org/idx_bylaws.htm

If you have questions on either the Bylaws changes or the Electronic Voting Consent Form, please address them to either David Kahn at david_kahn@hms.harvard.edu  or Jean Campbell at jccampb@aol.com

NANCY RICHTER BRZESKI DREAM THEATRE AND AWARD

In March 2007 Nancy Richter Brzeski, aided by Janet McCall and Cynnie Pearson, introduced Dream Theater to thirteen 8th grade volunteers at Falk Laboratory School in Pittsburgh, PA.

An article describing this event will appear in the Spring edition of Dream Network. This school, currently one of the best lab schools in the country, is affiliated with the School of Education at Pitt University. The following day the volunteers made dream-related collages. Great fun was had by all! Nancy will be given the school's "Outstanding Alumni Award" on April 17 in Pittsburgh, her home town. She graduated from Falk Elementary School in 1938.

 

 

 

INTERNATIONAL DREAM EXHIBITIONS TAKE CENTER STAGE

Welcome Collection in London:
“Sleeping and Dreaming,”
which closed March 9 2008, attempted to answer the following questions: Why are scientists still perplexed by sleep? What do the insights that our dreams bring us mean? And is a life without sleep conceivable? Sleeping and dreaming is a nightly (or daily) occurrence for us all, yet we still know relatively little about this elusive phenomenon. IASD dream artist, Jane Gifford was one of the artists featured in this show. To find out more, visit: http://tinyurl.com/yv7twr

Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC:
The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality, and the Moving Image
Part I: “Dreams,” Feb. 14, - May 11, 2008
This two-part exhibition features moving-image artworks by a range of influential and emerging international artists whose works use film language and technology to explore the ever-increasing impact of the cinematic on our perceptions and the ways in which the very boundaries between “real life” and make-believe have become at least blurred, if not indecipherable.

The first the series, “Dreams,” addresses film’s ability to transport us out of our everyday lives and into a dream world. Using a series of artists’ installations, the exhibition moves us through the different stages of consciousness and dreaming, from those moments between wakefulness and sleep to the darker recesses of the imagination and fantasy. “Dreams” is curated by chief curator, Kerry Brougher and associate curator, Kelly Gordon.

TWINS SOUGHT FOR DREAM STUDY
Are you an identical twin? Have you ever wondered if your dreams are different because you are a twin? Have you ever wondered if your dreams are similar to other twins? Would you like to help psychotherapists understand twins better?

This is your opportunity to participate in a study of the dreams of identical twins. A doctoral researcher at Capella University, Margery Runyan, is looking for sets of identical twins, ages 18-60, raised together and now living apart, who are willing to record dreams on awakening. The researcher will compare the dream content of twins to the dreams of singles and other twins. You will need to record five dreams and your twin will record five dreams without comparing or communicating about the dreams. You will receive a summary of the findings. All information about you and your twin will be confidential and your privacy will be protected.

Log onto www.twindreams.info  or contact Margery Runyan at 970.946.0992 if you are interested. You will help other twins by participating. Thank you for considering this opportunity.

IASD PLANS 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION...

 With Your Assistance

Although this summer's IASD conference in Montreal will begin the celebration of IASD's 25th Anniversary as the world's paramount dream organization, the IASD Board of Directors has decided to create a full year of celebration, which will end at the 2009 Conference in... location to be announced in Montreal!

We are asking your assistance both to create a year of celebration and to make sure that the world hears all about it. A calendar of Celebration Year events will be provided in the registration package at the upcoming conference.

Would you like to host or create an event? So far Board member Sheila Asato is planning for monthly events and workshops in Minnesota, Board member Nick Brink is contemplating an online program called Dream Read, and Regional conferences have been proposed for Chicago, Sweden and Jordan. Please propose only events that you are willing to work on and create, either alone or with other IASD members in your area.

There is a need for volunteers skilled in media, advertising and public relations to work with this celebration as well. If you have ideas to propose or skills to promote the celebration plans of others, contact IASD Board Chair, Jean Campbell at jccampb@aol.com 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONLINE COMMITTEE WILL SURVEY MEMBER PREFERENCES

The primary purpose of the Online Committee is to implement and manage all electronic needs to support the IASD mission. The committee also works to financially support IASD by designing and implementing online programs that create potential sources of revenue. It is responsible for delivery and presentation of content that other committees develop for the web, and seeks to expand the outreach of IASD to a much larger audience.

What we envision, among other things, is a series of online services which could be provided for a relatively minimal charge to people who are interested in dreaming but who, for any number of reasons, are unable, or do not wish to, become IASD members.

In order to demonstrate the level of demand for online services, the Online Committee will shortly be distributing a short, two-question e-mail survey to all IASD members. This survey will ask you which of IASD’s existing services, and proposed future services, are of the greatest value to you. This information will be of great value to the committee, as well as the Board, in determining the direction and pacing of new online services.

The Online Committee is currently in need of additional volunteers. We are looking for a few members to share their time and talent on this committee. Most importantly, we need a co-chair who is fully conversant with online technology and who is willing to devote time to developing content in an online format. Other volunteers are also welcome!

REFLECTIONS ON BEING AN IASD BOARD MEMBER


Have you ever wondered what the IASD Board really does? I used to. Then I was voted a Board member, and got to peek behind the curtains. Boy, was I surprised. To share some of my bewilderment, in the monthly E-news I will reflect on what it is like to be a Board member.

Let’s start with the very basics many of you might already know. This is how the Board works: The Board is, at the moment, composed of six officers and fifteen elected members, plus former IASD presidents. We stay in contact mostly through e-mail, and trust me, plenty of messages are sent almost daily. We have four meetings a year; two during the annual conference, plus fall and spring meetings that are held over an entire weekend via phone conferencing.

The phone meetings are a bit demanding, at least for me, as I have to stay focused for several hours. Moreover, while the folks in the USA spend the day in the meeting, thanks to time difference, I have to stretch my bedtime until morning. Regardless, the meetings are so interesting that hardly anyone falls asleep during one.

Before all Board meetings, the eighteen committees, each in charge of a specific area or function, prepare reports for board members to read before the meetings. Then, our Chair, Jean Campbell, formulates a detailed agenda of the items to be discussed and voted on at the meetings. This year’s Spring meeting took place March 15 and 16. One of the most important themes we discussed was the revised Bylaws.

Changes in the IASD Bylaws were necessary to insure we are in compliance with California law. Many aspects of the Bylaws did not change, including our status as a non-profit organization in California, our mission, our right to publish, and our right to conduct conferences. But there were some changes, and the major ones were:

a) Meeting notification and voting. Under the new Bylaws we need to notify all members of meetings by mail, not email, unless the member has signed a consent form. So when your consent form arrives, sign it and send it back to the IASD office.

b) The Board of Directors. The nominating committee recommended we have 15 board members who are elected by the membership, and seven directors who are appointed by the board.

Next month, I will tell you more about what transpired at the spring meeting.

SPOTLIGHT on Southwest USA, Taos & Santa Fe, New Mexico
By Roger Martinez

Since the 10th International Dream Conference in Santa Fe, the Southwest has been all but a forgotten memory. The 1993 conference was my first involvement with IASD. Since then, we have not had an IASD president, or even a board member, from the southwest. (But then neither has the United States had a Southwestern president!) What we do have in the Southwest is a growing group of involved dreamers!

Currently, there are dream groups sharing dreams across the area. Jeremy Taylor was invited to present in Albuquerque recently. And I have just been given the unofficial go - ahead to teach a class on dreams at the University of New Mexico - Taos branch, next Spring. Victoria Rabinowe is one of IASD's longtime active Southwest members in Santa Fe and provides regular dream workshops. Also, in Santa Fe there is a new group beginning to form. The excitement is clear and it’s only a matter of time that dreamers in New Mexico will be a recognized regional group in IASD. You can expect to see many dreamers from this area at future IASD conferences.

Suena con Angelitos (sweet dreams),
Sir Roger Martinez
Southwest USA Regional Representative
Spain Regional Representative, (Representante por España)


Membership Voting Changes

Have you checked your “snail mail” for an important letter from IASD President David Kahn and Board Chair Jean Campbell? It’s a must-do action item for all members: we need you to return the enclosed consent form with your signature so you can vote electronically in the future. We must have your signed consent form on file and Richard Wilkerson is carefully collecting, recording and filing these forms as they come back to Central Office.

If you read this notice and notice that you DID NOT receive the letter with enclosed consent form for you to return by mail, please notify Richard Wilkerson immediately and he will send you another copy. IASD Office email: office@asdreams.org

If you do not have email and/or choose not to vote electronically you will have this option but we need to know this so we can reach all of our members. And of course email is less expensive and better environmentally than postal mail.

So, please help us to support your full participation as voting members of IASD.
