It’s that time of year again: PsiberDreaming time. Save the date and bow out of as many responsibilities as possible for the two weeks between September 28 – October 12, because you will be online, soaking up over two dozen presentations and workshops by cutting edge dream workers and researchers.
For the uninitiated, the annual PsiberDreaming Conference is a very affordable online conference put on every fall by the International Association for the Study of Dreams. The conference is a platform for not only learning from the brightest minds in dreamwork but also for interacting with them and becoming a part of the community.
Of course, I’ll be there. The conference always fuels my inspiration for a year, and also is wonderful way of catching up with colleagues and friends who live far way.
Putting the Psi in PsiberDreaming
Historically, PsiberDreaming has always focused on the edge of dream research, where psi, synchronicity and alternative medicine come together. Topics like lucid dreaming, mutual dreaming, and healing dreams are freely explored with downloadable presentations and 24/7 discussion threads.
The information goes both ways, though (or you might say its non-local and transpersonal). Workshops, chatrooms, and contests make PsiberDreaming truly interactive. This year there are three contests: The Precognitive Dream Contest, the Mutual Dreaming Contest, and the Group Psi Game.
There’s also a fabulous digital dream art gallery that never disappoints.
Dreaming with the Other
This year’s theme is “Dreaming with the Other.” Presentations and workshops focus on one of the core philosophical mysteries at the heart of humanity: what is Self, what is Other, and, as Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin question in the movie I Heart Huckabees, “How am I not myself?”
The theme echoes in a wonderful collection of presentations including how to:
- recognize healing messages from deeper realms,
- work with potentially precognitive dreams,
- explore dreaming with “extraterrestrials,” and
- consider lucid dreaming as a tool for rekindling past-life experiences.
Early Bird Special ends July 31
The conference is always affordable, but if you register on or before July 31, you can save even more.
Or, become a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams before the conference starts, and get into the PsiberDreaming conference for free.
That’s a great deal, because the benefits of membership of the IASD include our peer-reviewed academic journal Dreaming, the colorful DreamTime Magazine, and lots of education and community opportunities too.
Hope to see you “there.” as in here, there, dreamers everywhere!
