August's Remote Viewing Challenge

The next Remote Viewing Challenge is coming up! Everybody is welcome to give it a try, no special skills are needed, and it's free. Bring a little adventure in your life! I posted the details at the IASD Bulletin Board:

The next RV will be at either Wednesday August 3rd, or Thursday August 4, 2005, depending on where you live.


Cyber party for dreamers

I'd like you to invite you to my cyber party at Saturday, August 27th. I'm celebrating my return to full health after more than a decade of severe health problems. There will be a simple discussion board, and a chatbox, so you can chat and mingle with the other guests. There will also be a little experiment, a combination of a remote viewing and a shared dream.

For some background, in 1994 I came down with a seriously debilitating disease. I've spent most my time sleeping or resting in bed, and was able to leave the house only rarely. Doctors were never able to come up with an explanation. Being bedridden most of the time, I've always defined full recovery by the ability to travel to far destinations. I'm happy to report that I actually managed to do this last June.

There isn't much to see yet, but this is where you'll have to go at August 27th:

I hope to see you there!

DreamTending, seeds of African wisdom

In this three-day introductory seminar, Dr. Aizenstat will help the dreamer find relationship with the archetypal imagination—describing tribal, traditional, and emerging approaches to dream work that explore common dream themes, nightmares, archetypal images, and the recurring dream. Seminar topics include:

THE PERSONAL UNCONSCIOUS: Dreamwork methods drawn from Western psychology as well as tribal wisdom assist us in hearing the voices of the dream in relation to personal history and experience.

THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS: Archetypal approaches to dreamtending found in the work of Joseph Campbell, C. G. Jung, James Hillman, and Marion Woodman as well as in the traditions of African culture aid us in reconnecting to the universal images rooted in the mythological imagination of the human psyche.

THE WORLD UNCONSCIOUS: Dr. Aizenstat will demonstrate emerging methods of DreamTending which animate the living ecology of the wider landscape, reconnecting us to the realm of imagination and nature.

ONGOING DREAM COUNCIL: Participants will meet daily in ongoing dream councils of 4-6 persons to apply material learned in the seminar. This provides an opportunity for each member to work with his or her own dreams.

Dream Decoders tv show


I’m excited to share the following TV Bulletin with you. Each night, whether memorable or not, the average person has four to five dreams. But what do these dreams mean? And what do they tell us about ourselves? Discovery Health Channel unlocks the deepest secrets of the subconscious with the premiere of DREAM DECODERS. In this enlightening three-part series, three of the world’s top dream analysts who are our “Dream Decoders”—Dr. Marcia Emery, Dr. Alan Siegel and Dr. Veronica Tonay — help participants and viewers understand the messages of their dreams to foster greater emotional and psychological health.

DREAM DECODERS premieres with a sneak peek On Wednesday, August 17, at 10 PM (ET/PT). The three-part series will air in its entirety Tuesdays at 8 PM (ET/PT), beginning November 1.

DREAM DECODERS is filmed in front of a live-studio audience on a special “dream tank” set. Each episode evaluates the dreams of three or four people from different walks of life. With the help of host Steve Truitt, they share their most private, often recurring, dream or nightmare through verbal explanations and brief video re-creations. The Dream Decoders interview the dreamers about their personal experiences and current life challenges to uncover hidden clues in the depths of their psyches. The Decoders analyze these clues and offer their individual analysis to crack the dream code, giving the dreamers startling insight into their waking lives.

DREAM DECODERS promises to be one of the most controversial, entertaining, and enlightening hours of television that our waking minds could experience…leaving us with something stimulating to think, and dream about.
