Lucidity Institute

Dr. Stephen LaBerge offers workshops and training to individuals and groups to learn and develop the skill of lucid dreaming. The website features excerpts from various informational and instructional texts.

The Lucidity Institute teaches participants the skills to achieve a lucid dream state. The skills were developed by Dr. Stephen LaBerge over his 35 years researching lucid dreaming. In addition to in-person workshops, the doctor has written four books that are available on the website. Dr. LaBerge gleans information from Tibetan dream yoga research and other western sleep studies. The workshops guide individuals to a lucid dream state and teach them to replicate the results on their own. The website explains that the steps to lucid dreaming include meditatively preparing the mind with the right intention and planning short periods of wakefulness during a longer sleeping span.
