Lucid Surrender & the Alchemical Coniunctio

This participatory presentation is intended for those who are interested in the phenomena of lucid dreaming from the spiritual perspective. What happens when the lucid dreamer surrenders to the Transpersonal in a dream and relinquishes control over the dreaming process? ‘Surrender’ as used in this context refers to the alignment, within the dream, of personal will with the Transpersonal – the practice of ‘Lucid Surrender’™. It is entered into voluntarily – with a degree of conscious awareness – and may lead to the full lucid state. The presentation will include meditations and reflective work as well as a review of lucid dream alchemy. Contact [email protected] for more information.

What’s on with Dreams in London and beyond? 


A second run for this funny insightful and at times disturbing exploration of the strange yet familiar logic of dreams. Lucid uses sound, object manipulation and physical theatre to mine the depths of the subconscious.
