About Rita H. Hildebrandt

I was awakened to the power of dreams when I was 12 years old and on the brink of death. I was experiencing high fever and had a short lucid dream where my future self appeared and told me she was there to protect and guide me. She brought into my psyche the energy of my spiritual warrior, which had been completely absent until then, and with anger and passion asked me to follow her into life.

At the age of 15 I had an auditory dream where I was told I would travel to a foreign country and meet my soul partner. I followed that dream into action and synchronicities appeared that led me to the U.S. with a green card a few months before my 21st birthday and I met my future husband a year and a half later. He is the one
who exposed me to the first book on dreams by Anne Faraday at the age of 22. It was an exciting day and my love affair with dreams has never ended.

I have story after story of how dreams have guided me into soul affirming decisions. Dreams are and have been my companions all along my life journey and I am deeply grateful for the dreaming gift. I have passed on this gift by teaching others how to tap into their dreaming mind through their nightly dreams and their intuition.

My notes on the IASD

What I love about IASD is how it brings together such a large spectrum of people in a truly democratic way. We all dream every night no matter who we are or where we are. And IASD truly reflects that when we gather in our yearly conference. We all come together in the Spirit and Love of the Dream, each of us offering our gifts stemming from scientific research to artistic expressions to just the gift of a life experience lived to the fullest with the underlying river of our dreams.

After attending the yearly conference in Sonoma in 2007 I came back so filled with enthusiasm that I called upon other dreamers to join me in organizing a first ever Regional Conference on dreams in Southern California. Our dream became a reality on 4/12/2008 at Marymount College in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Three years later a larger group of us organized the second regional conference on dreams on 9/17/2011 also at Marymount College. Both conferences were very well attended and enthusiastically received.

Another gift I received from my membership was meeting one of the Board members, Jean Campbell, at the Santa Cruz yearly conference. My husband and I joined her new Internet experiment - The Peace Dreaming Bridge - in October of 2001 to deal with the aftermath of 9/11. The Peace Dreaming Bridge community also accompanied me and comforted me after the death of my husband in 2005.

The Psyberdreaming conference that IASD offers annually so enriches me while I converse with people throughout the globe in my own pyjamas - talking about my favorite subject:)) I also love the "Dreamtime" publication and look forward to receiving it every quarter.

All of us here in Southern Ca. would like to create a large dreaming community to support all dreamers who often feel so lonesome in their dreaming endeavours. That is our dream.

I am deeply grateful to the IASD and its founding members and Board for keeping this organization going for so many years and for spreading the gospel of the dream.
