I am conducting research trying to link dreaming, personality, art (poetry) and other important factors. You (anyone over 18) can help me by filling out a brief dream survey.
Thank you for your help,
IASD has received an offer from the American Psychological Association to include much of our literature, such as conference programmes and advice leaflets, on the PsycEXTRA database. This literature is termed ‘gray literature’, to differentiate it from academic peer-reviewed literature. The PsycEXTRA database is wider than the PsycINFO database, which contains abstracts from academic journals, including our journal Dreaming, and would enable many professionals and other interested people worldwide, to find and access much of our website and paper output. Articles from IASD’s DreamTime magazine can be included in the database, with permission of the authors. After legal and procedural discussions between APA and IASD’s Executive and Publications’ Committees a contract has now been signed and we will proceed to deliver material, and abstracts of that material, periodically to APA.

Spotlight on Great Britain
Thank you for taking this time to reflect on dreams with me. I had a dream recently in which Bob Dylan said, “Dreams are like songs sung.” That makes sense to me. In waking life, Bob Dylan has recently said: “The songs are my lexicon. I believe in the songs.” ‘If you substitute the word “dreams” for “songs,” then Dylan's words speak for me: I believe in the dreams. They are my lexicon and liturgy.
Dreams have guided me through life. In a dream, my guide summed it up well. Addressing my family and friends, he explained, “I know Mary’s life may not have turned out as you might have thought it would, but it had to be that way for the dreams.” In the past ten years, dreams--particularly what I call dreams of lucid surrender--have guided me into new dimensions of being and consciousness, teaching me to know the wisdom of Kahlil Gibran’s advice: “Trust the dreams for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.”
Over the past few years, through IASD conferences and Dream Time
as well as the website
http://www.luciddreamalchemy.com I’ve had the opportunity to
share the path of lucid surrender with those new to it and those
already experiencing it. I look forward to helping set up a
dream research institute in London at the Centre for Counseling
and Psychotherapy Education directed by Dr. Nigel Hamilton.
Meanwhile, it is good to know that IASD believes in dreams and
hears their song.
From Diane Rickards , Membership Chair
During the last few years, whether through sharing dreams with IASD friends across four continents or within a local long-term dream group, dreams have continually brought deep connections. They provide a springboard for working with others that is not only based on understanding, but also trust and open-heartedness.
Briefly, in 1999 I became an IASD member and discovered a like-minded community -- a mosaic of writers, researchers, therapists, and more who all were focused on various aspects of dreaming. I've been recording my dreams for over 30 years. Dreaming has captured my attention and enriched my life bringing deep interests in mysticism, meditation, Jungian psychology, lucidity and the dynamic flow of inner and outer arcs. Hence, this year when invited to become membership chair, I accepted. I look forward to getting to know more about the membership.
I hope you will have the opportunity to attend an IASD Regional (such as in Sydney in April) and/or the international conference (in Berkeley this June). Perhaps you could introduce a friend or colleague to IASD this year. Building IASD membership will bring greater creativity, broaden dream research, and aid cross-cultural understanding and deep connections, all toward collective wholeness. Like the rest of the world, our IASD community is shifting and this is the time to move forward and build -- liminal space creates openings and opportunities.
