IASD encourages its members to host regional meetings and co-sponsored events, and IASD will provide logistical and financial support to promote such events.
The benefits of regional meetings and co-sponsored events are twofold. First, they help IASD members in a particular geographical region to meet each other, socialize, network, and share their different approaches to dreams. Second, they help to advance the basic mission of IASD, which is to broaden public awareness and appreciation of dreams.
Although these are the primary goals, another aim is to generate new funds for IASD’s educational and outreach programs.

Dreaming is a natural universal human experience; part of nature’s psychological restoral process, an inspiration for invention and creative artistic expression, and often a deep personal or spiritual experience. This conference will explore these many aspects of dreaming, from the underlying neuroscience to the psychological, therapeutic and spiritual practices and benefits as well as the artistic expression and inspiration.
