When the New Moon sits at the closest point to Earth, it becomes a Super New Moon. Though Sun and Moon align with Earth, they are at opposite sides of the Moon. When the Moon faces Earth’s dark side, we dream in moonless dark three days before and after this time. This workshop will follow our dreams from the dark of the Moon to its crescent to First Quarter Moon before we leave the Winds of Change.

Astrologer Dietrech Pessin suggests, “… what is seeded during the time of the New Moon is bound to take the reins into a new direction,” yet cautions, “… we are in the dark of the Moon, which says you need more information, you need more light.”**

As moondark changes to moonlight, watch how and what dreams arise, how they begin to illumine meaning, memories, or events, the way Psiber winds change our minds, or our minds change our dreams.

Dear Dreamers, At this time, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the June 2020 IASD Annual conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our top concern is the safety and well-being of our international IASD family, the local area and the communities we serve. We want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding while we worked to make this decision. We also want to thank the Doubletree Hotel in Scottsdale for supporting our organization through this process, continuing the strong partnership which followed our successful conference in 2018. If you have already registered for the conference you will be sent a note shortly on the process to follow for a refund.  As you may know, the Annual Conference is not only our means of maintaining community, but it is our major source of income which we have now lost this year. It is a tough financial time for everyone so please don’t feel obligated, but if you do have the means to donate the amount of your conference fee or any amount to help IASD click here. We greatly value and appreciate your contributions and your generosity. We will sorely miss the in-person energy of our Annual Conference this year, but we hope to see you next year in Ashland! Sincerely, The IASD Executive Committee IASD Office:
