15TH ANNUAL ONLINE PSIBERDREAMING CONFERENCE – SEPT / OCT 2016
PSIBERDREAMING 2016: TUNING IN TO THE FREQUENCY
When we turn down our noisy thoughts and slip into dreams, do we tune in to another frequency? Can we then match wavelengths with those of others, sense subtle vibrations of things, pick up on signals from far away? Can we learn to turn to the frequency of our choice? What do we learn by attuning to frequently-repeating patterns of symbols in our dreams? As our eyes make color from frequencies of light and our ears find music in patterns of sound, do our dreams tune in to frequencies of reception and connection, insight and delight?
Tuning in to the Frequency invites these ideas and more to IASD’s 15th annual PsiberDreaming Online Conference, as once again we tune in to one another around the world and beyond.
