Welcome to the May 2016 Issue of Dream Network Aotearoa. My name is Lynette Papp and I have taken on the role of editor from Kevin Dobbyn. I would like to thank Kevin on behalf of our network for the wonderful work he has done over the last two years as editor of our online bulletin. Kevin is taking sabbatical leave to continue work on his doctorate combined with some extensive overseas travel.
In this month’s issue our contributors have presented some interesting feedback on events held over the last month plus we are advertising our upcoming June mini conference, Frontiers of the Dream. In addition to this Bev Roseveare-Kaho reports back from registered psychotherapist Dr. Alayne Hall’s enlightening presentation on Maori spirituality in relation to dreams which took place at our May Advanced Dream Group meeting. In Transition and Journey, Bev also reports on a presentation given by Margaret Toland to the Advanced Dream Group in April. Margaret Thorne presents her dream report on a memorable and healing dream entitled Golden Eagle. Margaret Bowater has posted a book review on the late Ernest Hartmann’s Dreams and Nightmares – The Origin and Meaning of Dreams. In Research Corner Margaret Bowater also addresses the idea of precognition using psychic energy.
