What we’re about
We are a San Diego-based community interested in lucid dreaming and related states of consciousness. We organize lucid dreaming meet-ups, workshops, lucid dream sharing groups, and other events that are appropriate for all levels of experience.
A lucid dream is when you are explicitly aware that you are dreaming while dreaming. This level of consciousness is of such a higher order that you can literally take a step back while dreaming to say aloud, "I am dreaming! This is a dream right now!" The degree of freedom, creativity, exhillaration, and sense of safety is quite extraordinary in the lucid dream state. Lucid dreams have a wide range of applications, many of which can serve health and wholeness and further inspire your passion for consciousness exploration. For instance:
- Meditate in the lucid dream state.
- Inspire creativity and intuition.
- Accept and befriend the shadow self.
- Problem-solve to remove blockages in your life.
- Train in the Tibetan Yogas of dream and sleep.
- Apply other practices while within the lucid dream state (e.g. mindfulness, Reiki, yoga, animal medicine, chakra balancing, martial arts, etc.).
- Many more
