An Outbreak of Group Creativity
One of the nicest things about being part of The World Dreams Peace Bridge
is that when people begin working with their dreams together, a lot of
creativity ensues. Since last June, when Jean Campbell's book, Group
Dreaming: Dreams to the Tenth Power was published, two other members of the
Peace Bridge, David L. Kahn and Ilkin Sungu, have completed manuscripts.
David's book, A Dream Come True: Lessons in Current and Precognitive Dream
Interpretation, was completed in the spring of 2007. His first decision
about the new book was that he would contribute all proceeds to the Peace
Bridge's Aid for Traumatized Children Project, through which we provide aid
for the children traumatized by the war in Iraq.
Soon after that, Ilkin Sungu from Istanbul announced that her book, (working
title: Written to the Wind) had been accepted for publication. It will
be a dual-language book in Turkish and English, and this time several other
members of the Peace Bridge got into the act . . . when Ilkin asked for
illustrations for her work. Additionally Joy Fatooh and her sister Kitty
have provided English translation and Jean Campbell will provide a foreword.
Ilkin too plans to donate the proceeds of her work to the Aid for
Traumatized Children Project.
Peace Bridge member Ken Shapley from the UK has provided a new addition to
the World Dreams Peace Bridge web site at
His latest composition, including Ken playing the digideroo, can be downloaded in MP3 format from
his Peace Bridge art page. And he's asked for the commentary of other members of the group.
Can working with dreams in a group setting promote creativity? If the World
Dreams Peace Bridge is any example, creativity abounds.
Drum Dance and Dream for Peace
And the 1,000 Drums Campaign
Other members of the Peace Bridge are exercising their creativity by
creating what may quite literally be the world's largest-ever drumming
circle, since drumming groups will circle the world with drum beats on
Monday, June 25, for Drum Dance and Dream for Peace.
The primary event of Drum Dance and Dream will take place at noon on the
National Mall in Washington DC on Monday, June 25 as part of the World
Children's Festival, sponsored by the International Child Art Foundation.
The World Children's Festival is a three-day event for children, free and
open to the public. But Drum Dance and Dream for Peace is a global event
too. Anyone who can beat a drum or bang on a pot is invited to join in.
For a list of groups drumming around the world see:
You can join us in the drumming. And you can also join us in an associated
fund raising event, the 1,000 Drums Campaign. We hope to raise several
thousand dollars by asking people to contribute just a few pennies for every
drum beat during Drum Dance and Dream for Peace. All funds will go to the
work of the Aid for Traumatized Children Project.
Hope to see you drumming...in the dream time!
