Tracy Hunt and Chelsey Groseclose: “The Matrix Within: from Insomnia to Lucidity, the Powers of Sleep and Dreaming”
If you could do or have anything at all, what would it be? The ability to walk through walls or bound over tall buildings? Taste fire? Have one night with your favorite celebrity? Or something deeper and more meaningful: A chance to make friends with your inner demons, curtail their efforts to sabotage your happiness? Perhaps a way to engage your deepest self in deep psychological healing or self- discovery? There is some pretty strong evidence that this can all be achieved through lucid dreaming. Additionally, the skill set to do so is something most people can learn and facilitate. In this talk we will dive deep into these mysteries and discuss some practical tools for accessing the power of your dreams. We will also talk about the inherent beauty and necessity of good sleep hygiene, what happens when this is disrupted and what you can do to promote a healthy relationship with your nightlife.
