The largest statement I can make about Electric
Dreams is that it is a networked community interested in anything that has to do
with dreams and dreaming. We have a variety of venues for sharing, each of which
suits a different need.
News about Dream related Events: Dream workers, researchers and dream
concerned organizations are now hip that Peggy Coats gets out the Global
Dreaming News on a monthly basis. This news is posted around the Internet and
also distributed in newsletters and other forums.
Articles, Interviews & Columns. Electric Dreams has a special focus on
dream sharing on the Internet. As new Web sites and projects emerge, you will
hear about them in the news, and often find expanded articles and interviews in
the Electric Dreams E-zine. Electric Dreams members bring up and discuss topics
in dreamsharing, from the uses of lucid dreaming to the ethics of dreamwork in
cyberspace to postmodern dreaming. The general idea is to have articles and
focus specials on topics that will enhance your dreamwork, dream sharing and
relationship with dreams and dreaming in general.
Dreamwork and Dream Sharing. From the beginning, the Electric Dreams
community has been a dream sharing community. We have pioneered many forms of
online dream sharing and have supported and promoted dozens of venues, both
online and off. For example:
The DreamWheel. For several years the DreamWheel has continuously taught
people how to have online peer-relationship, moderated dream groups using
non-defensive styles developed by John Herbert and many others. These groups are
small, intimate and usually focus on one dream at a time over the course of a
week or two. Sometimes the issue are personal, and other times they become
international, such as when the DreamWheel members include dreamers from Serbia
Dream-on is an email eList that supports a variety of dream sharing. Usually
it hosts the DreamWheel, but several other projects have been hosted as well.
The climate is one of fun and experimentation, though deep and meaningful values
are always at stake.
The Dream-Flow is a free speech forum for dreams that includes several dream
sharing networks and individuals. Dreams in the dream flow are circulated around
the networks along with comments and respondent dreams. These dreams are
archived and organized once a month and published (anonymously) on the Electric
Dreams e-zine. Anyone can participate.

OTHER DREAM PROJECTS ON THE NET: Too many to list here, but I try to keep
them via three main sources. The first is the Cyber-dream library
