Registration now open for the second Annual Many Worlds of Lucid Dreaming. https://glidewing.com/iasd/lucid_dreaming_conference.html

The International Association for the Study of Dreams will present its second online conference on The Many Worlds of Lucid Dreaming. The conference will offer presentations on the many facets of the lucid dreaming universe, ranging from practical “How To’s” to explorations into psi, healing, philosophy, and spirituality, as well as the latest cutting edge scientific research.

Moreover, you will explore how to utilize the lessons of lucidity and bring them into your waking, day-to-day life so that you can live more lucidly. Naturally, bringing greater awareness into your waking life can lead to greater lucid dreaming. Similarly, learning how intent, expectation, beliefs and focus influence your lucid dreaming can give you liberating insights into how to use those same mental activities in your waking life – and consciously co-create a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life.


IASD is happy to offer online courses in the science and psychology of dreaming and in the science of lucid dreaming for those IASD members and non-members who would like to take these as part of an independent study program.

Currently there are many people around the globe reporting “Covid-19 dreams”, which reflect the unexpected situation in which we all find ourselves. Esteemed IASD members have been contributing interviews, articles and research on dreams during the pandemic. We hope you will find this compilation of information to be useful.

Interest in dreams seems to be increasing all the time while, at the same time, people have to be very selective about what they want to read. The basic idea of dreamlinks is to provide links to articles on dreaming, dream research and other dream-related topics (rather than the articles themselves) to make selecting easier: one just has to click on the link to access the webpage of interest.

For the second year in IASD’s history, members and non-members alike can join the IASD Dream Study Groups Program (DSGP), where like-minded individuals will be able to meet and interact in our “DSGP Tea Room” and will follow course content together over the period of one year in an engaging and interactive way, with access to forums and discussion questions.The cost for participation in the DSGP, $50 for IASD members and $75 for non-members, includes:

Access to the “DSGP Tea Room”, a global forum for dreamers.
Access to either the DSGP Foundation Series, or the DSGP Research Series, detailed below.
A one-year membership in either series, where members will interact on forums and discuss course content over the year.

The DSGP Foundation Series brings together courses on A History of Dreaming, The Science and Psychology of Dreaming, and Dreamwork Methods.

The DSGP Research Series offers dream research courses including some from IASD’s First Online Dream Research Conference, which featured some of the best-known dream researchers in the world.

Both the DSGP Foundation Series and the DSGP Research Series include video presentations and discussion questions to prompt conversations in forums with other DSGP members. You will take a quiz after each presentation to earn a certificate of completion.

The next round of the DSGP will start September 1, 2021.
