FAQs

What is a lucid dream coach?

A coach is someone who extends traditional training methods by incorporating an individual’s needs, as well as providing non-judgmental feedback on performance through close observation. Thus, a lucid dream coach fulfills this role the goal of helping someone attain more lucid dreaming skills. A lucid dream coach can be thought of as something between a life coach and personal trainer for the mind.

Do I need a lucid dream coach?

No, there’s plenty of free information available online about how to induce lucid dreaming. However, there is a lot of misinformation out there so make sure whatever you’re reading or watching is backed up by reliable data. A lucid dream coach helps by filtering out the misinformation and providing knowledge that is appropriate to the individual's situation.

Why have a lucid dream coach?

  • There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be with lucid dreaming

    • If you want to experience your first lucid dream, or increase your frequency of lucid dreaming, a lucid dream coach can help achieve your goals. He or she can also help you navigate common challenges in the process like frustration, dry spells, and dream control.

  • You would like individual tutoring as opposed to workshops/retreats or reading books/websites

    • Many lucid dream products are online courses with pre-recorded audio/video sessions, so the instructor is not there to answer personal questions or give customized feedback. Books, websites, workshops, and retreats also follow this one-size-fits-all model. If you prefer an approach that’s more catered to your individual needs, then lucid dream coaching might be a good fit for you.

  • For expertise that will help you achieve your lucid dreaming goals in a shorter time-frame

    • A lucid dream coach is well-read, knowing which techniques are backed by science and which ones are not. He or she will also draw on personal experiences with lucid dreaming, as well as the experiences of others to help you achieve your own lucid dreaming goals quicker.

  • To help keep you motivated and on track to accomplishing your lucid dreaming goals

    • Since lucid dreaming happens all within one’s own mind, it can be isolating at times. A lucid dream coach is a knowledgeable companion that shares your passion for dream exploration, who can provide honest feedback on your progress and help you through the more difficult times.

Why choose me as your lucid dream coach?

  • My academic and personal credentials:

    • I have a M.A. in Psychology with a Dream Studies certification and am currently working on a Ph.D. in Psychology. For my M.A thesis, I studied inducing lucid dreams in myself through a combination of techniques. I’m not a natural lucid dreamer; I had my first one at age 20 after learning how to do it and, since then, I’ve induced the experience hundreds of times.

  • My passion in life is lucid dreaming:

    • After learning about lucid dreaming via Inception, I knew I could easily spend my entire career investigating this intriguing phenomenon. I’ve been studying it personally & academically for many years with no end in sight. I love learning/teaching about lucid dreaming so I plan on coaching others and conducting research the rest of my life. This passion also means I stay up-to-date on the latest science of lucid dreaming, including induction techniques.

What happens in your lucid dream coaching sessions?

Each session is customized so it is dependent on the needs of the individual at that time. Progress and feedback are always discussed, along with strategies about how to further improve in-between sessions. Most sessions center around discussing various lucid dream induction techniques, the science behind them, how to properly perform them, and common mistakes or misconceptions. Goal-setting, struggles, and motivation also frequently come up in the conversation, as well as applications of the lucid dream state that could potentially benefit the individual.

How long must I commit to working with a lucid dream coach?

Lucid dreaming is a skill that requires time/effort to learn. The amount of time/effort needed is dependent on the individual's goals and starting point. Learning lucid dreaming is comparable to losing weight or gaining muscle: noticeable results are produced through effort over time and consistent exercise is needed to maintain those results. I ask clients for a minimum commitment of 2 hours of coaching over 1 month. However, I highly recommend a 3-6 month commitment with 2-4 hours of coaching each month because this will allow us to build a more solid foundation to your lucid dreaming skills.
