Strephon Says: Podcasts and blog

By following Strephon's podcasts you will be engaging in a consciousness course by experiencing the meaning of the dreams Strephon talks about as he developed their themes and wisdom aspects.

Strephon Kaplan-Williams is an international expert on dreams and the new dreamwork, as reflected in his many books over the years. His best seller in America and other countries has been his The Dream Cards. However, his dreamwork manuals are the respected classics in the field used in college and university classes as well as by the general public.

Now in retirement age Strephon gives his podcasts and continues to write new books.

Dream of Peace Network

The Dream of Peace Network website is a portal, bringing forth peaceful, positive energy from the dreaming, into the waking world. This site aims to showcase some of the wonderful creations and projects inspired by our dreams, list current adventures being undertaken by groups of active dreamers, and generally serve to connect and network the wider dreaming community.

2006 IASD PsiberDreaming Conference

Scheduled from September 24-October 8, with an additional two weeks of read-only availability, the fifth annual PsiberDreaming Conference will bring together a stellar cast of presenters and workshop facilitators along with live chats, contests and bulletin board discussion.

The conference will feature a special discussion of the Physics of Psi Dreaming, with a presentation of Dr. Montague Ullman's paper, "The Dream in Search of a New Abode" and response by Mark Schroll, Ph.D., along with a new conference feature, the presentation and discussion of several papers and workshops in either Spanish only or Spanish and English. This feature of the conference will be led off with a paper by Stanley Krippner Ph.D. and Rosa Anwandter, Ph.D.: "Dreams and Shamanism in Latin America." This experimental approach to programming reflects the growing internationalism of IASD.

Dolores Nurss and Curt Hoffman will serve as innkeepers at the conference Psiber Dream Inn, where weary travelers can stop by and share a tale. In anticipation of the conference, the Psiber Dream Inn has opened as The Outer Inn on the regular IASD Discussion Board, which as always is freely accessible.

The Dream Institute offers the following during September 2006.

Culture Dreaming

Monthly, Saturday afternoons 3-5, $20
September 9, October 7, November 11, December 2

Culture Dreaming is an experimental ritual that gives a living sense of interconnection. Dreams are first told in council fashion; then we explore the composite dream co-created. Like a camera obscura that opens a window to the world, it shows surprising relevance to current societal and global concerns. Come once, occasionally, or regularly.
