Courses based on empirical studies of dreaming, dream recall, neuroscientific foundations of dreaming, dream work outcomes, and other dimensions of quantitative and qualitative research.

This 2-CE course is based on presentations part of a Clinical Symposium titled "Transpersonal Research," held in June 2016 at the Annual IASD Conference in Rolduc, with David Billington, Judy Pascoe, Dwight Turner, and Fulvio D’Acquisto.

Three brief presentations and one longer presentation on research undertaken within the transpersonal paradigm under the aegis of the Dream Research Institute (DRI) in London will be reviewed in this course. The presenters discuss the challenges of investigating dream experience from a psycho-spiritual perspective—heuristically, qualitatively and quantitatively—and will discuss their methods and findings.

The course includes the following presentations: 

David Billington “Dreams and Holistic Wellbeing: Method and Findings”

Judy PascoeOrganic and Art-based Inquiry into Dreams

Dwight TurnerBorn Again: Alchemy and Dreams of the Other

Fulvio D’Acquisto Dreaming Autoimmunity

Functionality comes only after the collective interaction of individual memories leads to the emergence of a dream. Core functionality comes from emergence, and is thus independent of the specific content of the dream even if the specific content provides meaning for the dreamer.
