About Ann Sayre Wiseman

I use Milton Erickson's common-sense and self hypnosis approach.

My special interest and use of dreams is in psychotherapy, gestalt, psychodrama, and self balancing, creativity and the original spirit. I run workshop intensives here and abroad using art, dreams, and closed eye visioning as the primary facilitator.

I was adjunct faculty at Lesley College Arts Institute in the Expressive Therapies and teacher training for thirteen years.( course list URL www.annsayrewiseman.com)

People and books I've learned from are Patricia Garfield, Freud, Jung, Milton Erickson, Gibran, the I Ching, the Dali Lama, etc. etc.

My notes on the IASD

During these 25 years IASD members have produced hundreds of useful and important books and articles about dream research and decoding methods making dreams belong to the dreamer instead of prests, gurus, doctors, or even God herself.
Ann has kept dream journals for fifty years, and published two books on dreams.

Ann has been an ASD member and presenter for over 20 years. she has offered workshops and slide talks almost every year for IASD and at Esalen in Big Sur Ca. The Cambridge center for Adult Ed. in Mass. and Intercultural organizations here and abroad incl. Turkey, Ghana, Nassau Bahamas, Skyros Greece, Tel-Aviv, Delhi and Poone India

As a workshop presenter, dream worker, and group leader for many years I have introduced The Paper stage technique, Body mapping from dreams and my mini-autodrama method using found objects color and guided imagery.
