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.
Listing of upcoming IASD Annual, Regional Mini-conferences and Meetings
The conference will feature world-renowned keynote speakers and over 120 presenters from around the globe, an opening reception, a Dream Art Exhibition placed around the cloister of the Abbey, an art reception, the annual Psi Dreaming Contest, a dream hike on the Dutch/German border and the ever-popular costume Dream Ball and other special events appropriate to enjoyment of the location.
During this one-day event, we will explore various ways to work with dreams which include a main event with multiple presentations, workshops, panels, and symposia.
The main event will feature IASD’s own Walter Berry, who will team up with Keith Himebaugh, Ph.D., a professional Animator and Archetypal Psychologist. Walter is known for his uniquely creative workshops as he reawakens dreams through art, lights and his wit. Keith, as a graduate of Pacifica Institute, merges psychology with animation to bring a mythic aspect to experiencing dreams. Together, they will be bringing back their hugely successful Firebird workshop from the 2017 IASD Conference in Anaheim, with newly added animation. Get ready for a whole new level of experiential dreamwork – the Firebird awaits you!
