In January, ARE/AU became an Organization Member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). Per their website, IASD is “a non-profit, international, multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the pure and applied investigation of dreams and dreaming. Its purposes are to promote an awareness and appreciation of dreams in both professional and public arenas; to encourage research into the nature, function, and significance of dreaming; to advance the application of the study of dreams; and to provide a forum for the eclectic and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and information.”
ARE/AU Executive Director and CEO, Kevin Todeschi, said, “Because of the importance of dreams to Cayce and the important work being done by IASD, this is an opportunity to work together to share the significance of dreams in changing the consciousness of humankind.”
