What are lucid dreams, and can anyone have them? During this evening at The Book Club in London, we explored how reality can appear to warp in the state when we are caught between sleeping and waking, and discovered methods to gain control of these.

Psychologist and dream researcher Josie Malinowski took guests through lessons in lucid dreaming, including a guided daydream. Sinking deep into the human mind, audiences uncovered how to direct their own dreamscapes, conquer their biggest fears, travel at will to any location on the planet or live out their wildest fantasies.

Tree Carr, filmmaker, musician and dream guide joined us to screen her short film Dream Baby Dream, and shared how her dream life influenced her creativity.

Guests also made their very own blend of night time brew to add zzzzs to their next bedtime, while neuroscientist Rachel Williams shared the history of sleep inducing herbal and orthodox medicine.

This event was part of our monthly residency with Mothership Group venues.
