Simplicity is the highest form of mastery.

Our minimalist approach to lucid dreaming is three-fold: build dream recall,  practice technique, and explore your deeper psychology (and personal why).

There’s some confusion as to what a lucid dream is if you’re new to the idea. Some mistakenly think it’s an extremely vivid dream.

But a true lucid dream is one wherein you recognize that you are dreaming while you are still in the dream itself, and you have some sense of agency over your behavior and/or elements of the dream itself.

There are gradual, soft induction styles and then there are more direct induction techniques that can be precisely utilized to have lucid dreams more frequently. What we do at the Dreambender Lucid Dream School is explore the mindset of lucidity using oneirogenic practices: ones that promote dream recall, restful sleep and lucidity.

I didn’t always have the ability to lucid dream. For me, it was a spontaneous event in my early twenties, brought on by reality checks; something I didn’t realize I was doing. As I humbled myself to the slow but exhilarating process and became curious about the potential applications of lucid dreams, I found it became more natural to me. 

 

It took me years to develop my skill naturally, but I knew early on that it would be a lifelong study.

There was a kind of honeymoon phase in the beginning where I was able to ride on the exhilaration alone to induce lucid dreams almost every night. But life happened, and that shiny new obsession became less easy. That is when the true work began. This is why, after over fifteen years of  loyalty to lucid dreaming’s beautiful promise of a more integrated psyche, I am able to share and guide.

I still encounter pitfalls that hinder  consistent lucidity. I still experience obstacles within the lucid dreams that I have to work to navigate. 

It may be different for you, but lucid dreaming is a skill that can be learned, no matter who you are or what your natural proclivity toward it is.

The Dreambender Lucid Dream School is also a community of dreamers. After you start to lucid dream itentionally, you recognize that induction techniques, while necessary, are only the beginning to consistent results.

Facilitating an ongoing passion and curiosity is easy when it’s easy. When we plateau or find ourselves not excited to advance, the coherence of applied mentorship and a supportive community can become the muse and medicine needed to continue.
