The Dutch VSD – Vereniging voor de Studie van Dromen ( literally translated as: Association for the Study of Dreams) – was established in 1996 and is a broad network of dream experts and enthusiasts in The Netherlands (Europe). The VSD is an independent entity and a committed corporate member of the IASD. The VSD currently has 160 members with a diversity of interests and educational backgrounds. Among them quite a few IASD fans, too: in our midst you’ll find 5 former IASD Board Members, and one current one.
The VSD organizes and sustains a broad array of dream related activities, run by 19 active Volunteers:
- In 9 regional groups members come together 4-6 times a year to share dreams and interests.
- The magazine Droomjournaal (dream news) is published three times annually.
- The semi-annual symposia cover a variety of topics (like: nightmares, dreams and highly sensitive persons, shamanistic dreams, children’s dreams, etc); and aim at integrating cognitive and practical elements
- The website acts as a gateway for Journalists and General Public with an interest in dreams, visited about 6000 times per month.
