SPOTLIGHT on SOUTHEAST USA: Georgia, So. Carolina No. Carolina
From JUSTINA LASLEY

Dreams are buzzzzing in the Southeast. We have many new IASD members this year from South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina and other areas of the Southeast USA.

Justina Lasley, Director of the Institute for Dream Studies (IDS) which is based in Charleston, South Carolina, reports that the dream is alive, well, and evolving. “We have gained the support of the community in many ways -- through newspaper features, TV appearances, speeches for organizations, retirement communities, college classes, etc.” She encourages each of you to reach out to the media in your area. “Media is always looking for a good story and everyone dreams, so it’s a topic with broad appeal.”

The graduates of the first class of the Institute for Dream Studies are out in the world spreading the power of the dream. New dream groups have formed by the leadership of the students in South Carolina, Virginia, Kansas, and California. “It’s exciting to see what can happen with the ripple effect of dreamwork. We are beginning to see those ripples form waves and it looks like the communities are enjoying jumping in the water.”

We are fortunate to have Iceland represented in the Southeast with a new IASD member who is getting her first taste of Southern hospitality though her study with the Institute.

IDS, its graduates and current students, encourages you to gather a group to travel to Montreal. We have a group going and encourage others in the Southeast to join us. For many this will be their first conference. For some it will be their first international conference. For all, it will be a treat. We are looking forward to bringing back to the South new ways of working with dreams and new ideas for creating work in the field of dreams.

There are many people in other parts of the Southeast who are leading dreamwork in their communities and helping others learn to use the dream to facilitate personal growth and development. Tallulah Lyons (GA) continues to lead through the IASD Cancer Dream Project and as a member of the staff of a new cancer center at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta. www.healingpowerofdreams.com

The world can change and become a place of peace and understanding by honoring the dream in many ways. Hats off to everyone in the Southeast and beyond who are helping make this world dream come true.

For more information on the Southeast, please contact Robert Gongloff (NC) at www.heartofthedream.com  and Justina Lasley (GA, SC) through www.DreamsWork.us

IASD REGIONAL CONTACTS: LET’S EXPAND OUR HUBS!

As we wrote last month our 40 Regional Contact Reps are doing a great job of making personal contact with you, our members, in many parts of the world.  But we still have major areas of the world without personal regional representation. These include Africa, Russia and former USSR countries, Middle East, and many parts of South and Central America. Jeremy Seligson keeps up with all of Asia!  But it would be great to have more Reps in the Far East and in the countries of South America, which Rosa Anwandter of Chile covers single handedly. 

Olaf Gerlach-Hansen and Jody Grundy will continue serving as “at large” contacts for unrepresented geographical regions, but we ask all of you to consider becoming or recommending new Regional Reps for these areas. 

Wonderful and unique letters come to me as Membership Chair, to Richard Wilkerson in the IASD Office, to David Kahn, our President, who invited correspondence between the leadership of IASD and our members, and to Jean Campbell, Board Chair and communicator extraordinaire. 

I mention this to give all of you a sense of how alive the community of IASD is and how many new dreamers are finding us through Internet searches, friends and colleagues, and radio and other media contacts. While we try to respond to everyone who contacts us, it is particularly effective for isolated individuals to discover other members and activities in their regions and have an IASD representative  communicate with them. Through this contact they can personally engage and participate in the IASD community. So, consider if you would like to help build this network of IASD “hubs” by being a Regional Rep. 

Finally, we are pleased to report that our membership numbers grew by about 12% in 2007, quite an accomplishment. And we’re delighted to see a total of 88 members registered for January 2008. Many thanks to all who contributed to this wonderful growth. 

Jody Grundy
Membership Chairperson
