      Why not organize dreaming retreats?

      There are hundreds of active participants on this website, we could do a bit fundraising and organize a retreat or two in countries where most of the participants live. I would certainly not mind traveling somewhere to join such a retreat even if it meant traveling to another country.

      Or am I missing something? Maybe there are some retreats that you participate in, if so, please share the information

      Honestly I've always wanted to attend the International Association for the Study of Dreams Convention. Before Covid I know they hosted it in Europe, I think in the Netherlands? Way too far away for me, unfortunately. I don't know about any in the U.S., though.

      It seems like quite an undertaking to do something like that just for DV. I mean, I would totally support it, but the cost alone would be enormous.. Perhaps it's best to instead focus on programs already in existence? I'm not sure how many of those things exist, and are feasible for people, but please post if you find out about anything.

      You know, this would be an idea that you need to bring up with the admins actually. Not only that it is their site but, you also probably need to have to keep in mind the safety concerns that may pop up as well.

      Including things like costs, Security, safety, what venue it is going to be at, and other things.

      As much as this is a community, dreaming can be a very much independent endeavor.

      It is a great idea, but not something that would actually happen. The community of people interested in dreaming is tiny. It also attracts people from every walk of life, unlike something like reef tanks or Brazilian Jiujitsu. Both those attract people who can afford an expensive hobby. I assume most of us can not afford extensive travel.
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.
