Welcome to IASD, the world’s premier dream organization. Do you have a question about dreams or nightmares? Post your request on our Facebook Group Page. If you are studying dreams in depth, check out our booklist or search our pages for articles by dream experts. Popular topics include lucid dreaming, dream films, dream telepathy and our Dream FAQ. We highly recommend that you attend one of our Regional or International Conferences.


Please join us along with world renowned keynote speakers and more than 130 presenters from typically 20 countries around the globe. It is more than just a conference but an extravaganza of fascinating presentations and special events. Everyone is welcome – whether you are a professional, a dreamworker, or just a curious or interested dreamer. The program features peer reviewed presentations and workshops, in a multidisciplinary program including the scientific, psychological, spiritual, artistic, healing, lucid and extraordinary, ethnic and cultural aspects of dreaming and a lot of fun events such as an opening reception, a Dream Art Exhibition and reception, the annual PSI Dreaming Contest, and the ever-popular costume Dream Ball. This year’s featured tracks include Dreams and Ethnicity and Dreams and The Arts. For the latter, we plan some special events in conjunction with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

COVID-19 DREAMS PORTAL 
 
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. Click here to access Covid-19 Dreams Portal.

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. Click here to join the dreamlinks forum.

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.  Click here for more information about these online courses.

New Group Starting in March 2021! Enroll begins in January 2021.

For the first time 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 Global Dreamers Forum, and will be assigned to small Dream Study Groups with one of IASD’s Regional Representatives as a host.

Dream Study Groups will follow the Foundation Series courses over the period of one year in an engaging and interactive way, with access to forums and discussion questions every week.
