I will be taking part in a panel discussion called Lucid Dreaming for the Great Synthesis at 2PM Saturday, April 8th 2023 in The Summit at The Lucidity Festival in California. Other Lucid dreamers will be on the panel such as: Jonah Haas, Sanjeev (Sanj ‘Binaural Dreams’), Erik Casano and Gwendolyn Alley. The workshop space will be set up to accommodate approximately 100 audience members. I have taken part in a lucid dream workshops and discussion panels in previous years at Lucidity Festival which have all been enriching and uplifting experiences. 

I was very active with lucid dreaming 10 years ago when the Lucidity Festival first started. It was extremely empowering in my personal development. My life’s purpose at that time was to spread knowledge and wisdom about lucid dreaming to the world. This culminated in this website ( youCanLucidDream.com ), a documentary, live workshops and making various content for lucid dreaming.

I no longer lucid dream to the same level as I did back then. I have lost a lot of my abilities and often fall back into dream dilemmas I’ve already figured out in past dreams. Recently I average 1 spontaneous lucid dream a year, and it’s nowhere near as vivid and profound as the dreams I had in my 20s and 30s.

The Great Synthesis - Lucidity Festival 2023

Despite my lack of lucid dreams in the recent years, I am still dedicated to spreading knowledge and wisdom about Lucid Dreaming and how to achieve that miraculous state. The Lucidity Festival is an ideal place to do that! In previous years I have lead workshop on lucid dreaming such as:

The 2 lucid dream workshops are talked about in this blog post I wrote on my lucid dreaming website over 7 years ago. It includes video from my “Advanced Lucid Dream” workshop from Lucidity Festival 2013:

journey to lucidity 2: Tree of Guardians ScreenshotThis filmmaker Brendon Wolf-Shield Culliton attended Lucidity Festival 2014 and made a sequel to the movie he made last year. It is called Journey to Lucidity 2: Tree of Guardians. In this movie he returns to the Lucidity Festival dream with more awareness, and seeks out wisdom from guardians and dreamers. He asks people what it is we should remember. One of the things he filmed was the Lucid Dream Discussion Panel I was in. He uses a few clips of me and other lucid dreamers in the movie.

lucidity festival 2013 Lucid Dream Workshop hosted by Richard Hilton

wake-up-in-your-dreamsAuthor Robert Waggoner and philosopher Rory Mac Sweeney discuss the nature of reality, with a penetrating view into the the elusive state of non dualistic awareness. Both offer insight into the world of lucid dreaming and ponder the notion of being able to connect with other people in the dream world.

Thomas Peisel talking about lucid dreamingThomas Peisel’s book Oneironautics: A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming teaches its readers not only how to remember their dreams, but how to become lucid within them. Inspired by the idea that lucid dreaming isn’t about sleeping but about waking up, Thomas shows us that when we begin to consciously create out own dreams, we naturally understand how we can consciously create our waking lives as well.

Thomas is a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. His website, dreamlabs.io, aims to explore the potential of dreaming through interactive social experiments and educational videos.

Conscious Dreaming follows the journey of three beginners as they immerse themselves in the world of lucid dreaming. With the help of experts, they will use a unique method designed to help achieve lucidity, such as practices done in the waking state, meditation, and mobile apps. (more…)


Full Movie:

This filmmaker Brendon Wolf-Shield Culliton attending Lucidity Festival 2013 and make this movie. He filmed the Advanced Lucid Dreaming workshop I did and used a few clips in the movie.

Journey to LucidityMovie Description: A young man awakens unexpectedly under a tree to find himself in the midst of a magical festival full of artists, musicians, celebration, yoga, meditation, knowledge, and other yet to be explored mysteries and characters. Given a gift of a single pinecone he sets out on his way to learn more about it, himself, and the universe. (more…)

The Lucidity Festival is a weekend long art and music event that happens East of Santa Barbara California, at live oak camp ground each year in April. I have gone the past 2 years and had a splendid time.  I highly recommend this event to everyone who is seeking outward and inward. This year 2014 it is called Lucidity Universe.
