Dreaming is a natural human experience, nature’s way to restore psychological balance. Dreams inspire invention and creative expression and evoke deeply personal spiritual experiences. This conference explores dreaming from diverse perspectives – from neuroscience to psychology to spirituality to arts and culture. We hope to inform and inspire dreamers of all ages and backgrounds, as well as those who use dreams in their work, such as therapists, pastors, artists, writers, musicians, and medical practitioners.
We invite you to become part of the southern network of dreamers at this two-day conference, which begins Friday morning with workshops on exploring your own dreams and continues through Saturday with a full lineup of keynote speakers, special events and world-class workshops. Keynotes include the science and psychology of dreaming, lucid dreaming, dreamwork in spiritual organizations, and dreamwork in southern US culture. This is not just a talking conference – you will have time to meet and relax with your fellow dreamers at several dream-themed special events: a short-film festival, a visual art exhibition, a theatrical performance, early morning dream groups, and a special drumming circle/ecstatic dance event on Friday night!
CEs will be offered for certain sessions; IASD is the provider of CE Credits, and is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. IASD maintains responsibility for this program and its contents.
