Exploring Mind through Liminal Dreaming with Jennifer Dumpert: Registration Form
Saturday October 12, 2019

Liminal dreaming occurs at the boundaries of consciousness between waking and sleep. Hypnagogia, the hallucinatory dream state through which we pass as we sink into sleep, and hypnopompia, the floaty, mesmerizing dreams we have as we surface back into waking, together make up liminal dreaming, one of the most unusual brain states we experience. We all possess the ability to simultaneously maintain waking, rational consciousness while sinking into the free associative, kaleidoscopic realms of the subconscious. Yet few of us develop this powerful tool for exploring mind.

You’re probably familiar with liminal dreams, but you may never have given them much thought. In this workshop, Jennifer Dumpert, author of Liminal Dreaming: Exploring Consciousness at the Edges of Sleep ( will lead participants through a series of exercises designed to help you learn to locate and linger in liminal dream states, and to explore liminal dream understandings and practices drawn from various religious, cultural, and intellectual traditions, including yoga nidra; Tibetan Buddhist dream yoga; Jungian active imagination; the Sufi concept of mundus imaginalis; indigenous practices of oneiromancy; and creativity and problem solving practices developed by figures such as Thomas Edison and Salvador Dali.
Liminal dreaming can be used for a variety of ends, from generating ideas to healing. It can also provide a deep meditation and a vivid, fascinating mode of experiencing consciousness.

This registration form is for Saturday's daylong; please consider also joining us on Friday evening 7:30-9:30 pm for an introduction to the process.
