About A Muhammad Ma`ruf, Ph.D.

My experiences as an educator have included college level instruction for many years, as well as graduate student mentoring in the US. I also have experience in higher educational and other kinds planning and administration, as an English teacher to non-English speakers, and in various other volunteer community service roles.

I believe that all social life has inner and outer structures and processes and that dreams are an important part of the inner, psychological structures and processes.

I have done some dream interpretation as part of recent research with dreamer narratives. There is some continuity of the interpretation activity in my present schedule.

My graduate education was in Cultural Anthropology. My later research interest in dreams has been motivated by a personal interest in some of my own dreams and nightmares which for a long time have seemed related to my writing activities, as well as by wider theoretical issues.

I have presented “Dream Inspired Discourses: Explorations with English Speaking Muslims” at the April 2009 Conference of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness and the Association for Transpersonal Psychology, in Portland, Oregon.

My notes on the IASD

IASD was suggested to me several years ago by a colleague with whom I have had many discussions about dreams, dreams research, and Sufism. Since then I have been a regular participant in the Discussion Boards. With increasing admiration and thanks for the service that the Association provides through the Discussion Boards, I decided to become a formal member, recently (May 2010).
