I want to share a video conversation about the leading edge of lucid dreaming work. Honestly, the talk is probably the most mature and theoretically-savvy discussion on lucid dreaming I’ve been part of in years.
Topics include mutual dreaming, the future of lucid dreaming technologies, the links between lucid dreaming and the sacred plant medicines, and the hopeful emergence of the fully lucid human being…
Professionally produced by Luxid Lab, and hosted by its founder Mars, this 1.5 +hour panel discussion also features:
- Thomas Peisel, co-author of Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming and creator of Dream Labs
- Rory Mac Sweeney, researcher behind the Mutual Dream Experience
- Adam Palmer, founder of Astral Zen
And, by the way, if you’re interested in these topics on the edge of dream studies, don’t forget that the all-online PsiberDreaming Conference just begun yesterday. You can still register and catch up with me and two hundred other dreamers there.

I loved this talk and wish I was on your panel.After I read about possible healing yourself through a LUCID dream.THat made me think? I can’t induce a lucid easily I have to take hearbs or listen to bineraul beats.But I feel that theer are so many things we can achieve through lucid dreaming that people are not aware of?
Mind. Blown. To watch and listen to all of that as a group discussion certainly does give me hope that more and more people will wake up in their dreams and hopefully by extension in their waking lives. With more meetings of the minds such as these it sure seems like it would be an eventual inevitability.
Love that it wrapped up with contemplation of how the late, great Bruce Lee emphasized non-dual awareness in his own way. As Rory said in the discussion, it’s all subjective language and Bruce knew that without needing to label himself Taoist, Zen, a philosopher, etc. To do so would have been to only label himself with language. He didn’t even want to name his martial arts style/philosophy so it wouldn’t be considered a “style,” the point is that it is an ever adapting style of no style and that can be applied to anything which I think more and more people are realizing whether they heard it from Bruce or however else. He emphasized expression as what he was really about, authentic expression from an undivided state that is free from content despite having content because it simply takes on the perceived form of something. It’s formless and form but still non-dual. Many people still create a duality between non-duality and duality which is one funny and paradoxical pitfall of starting to be aware of non-dual awareness itself. If we allow lucid dreaming to be formless in how it’s talked about, researched, and experienced then it seems like it would never stop evolving as long as there is a conscious observer of it. It’s empty and it’s full of infinite possibilities simultaneously.
That’s my rant but it’s just language, lol! The point is, I loved this and I’m ready with the popcorn for another one.
Btw, Ryne good buddy, you were awesome you charismatic genius you!
