Can you dream about the future? Do precognitive dreams occur?

To investigate your ability to dream about the future, the IASD Psiber Dreaming Conference invites you to join our Precognitive Dream Contest. In this event, participants try to dream about a target picture before it is randomly selected from a pool of over 100 images stored on a computer.

Since IASD’s first PsiberDreaming Conference in 2002, participants have been enlisting their precognitive skills to dream of a target that has not yet been selected. Below you can read about the Precognitive Dream Contest rules. Click here to view the results of past contests.

How the Precognitive Dream Contest Works

Participants follow the instructions below to try dreaming ahead of time of a target picture that will be randomly selected on Sunday, September 29, 2019. All entries must be submitted the day before, no later than midnight Eastern Daylight Time (9 PM PDT), on Saturday, September 28. The hosts will then review each entry and “Precognitive Dream Champs” will be announced on Tuesday, October 1.

Precognitive Dream Contest Instructions

  1. Take these instructions to bed with you on Friday, September 27.
  2. Make sure you place a pen and paper or other recording device within easy reach of your bedside.
  3. Read over this paragraph at bedtime:
    1. I am requesting information from my dreams. Tonight I will have a dream of the target picture that will be posted on Sunday, September 29, 2019. I will waken with the dream fresh in my mind. I will remember the dream imagery easily and experience the contest target clearly. I will be able to understand the target picture in the same way that I will when I see it later on my screen.
  4. Repeat these instructions to yourself as you fall asleep.
  5. Record your dream memories as soon as you wake up, even if it’s the middle of the night. Be as descriptive as you can. If you record more than one dream, please give each a number.
  6. Post your dreams before midnight, Eastern Daylight Time (9 PM PT) on Saturday, September 28. If you prefer not to post your dreams, e-mail your entry to Cynnie at by the deadline.
  7. You may use your own name or a pseudonym, but do provide us with some means of identifying you.

2020 Annual Conference Archive


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:
