Dreamhacking describes forms of dream work conceived by me - author and teacher Jennifer Dumpert.
--> Liminal Dreaming: Hypnagogia--the drifty trance state you experience as you fall asleep or when you nap--and hypnopompia—the same thing as you slowly wake up—are hypnoidal dream states. Liminal dreaming is a way of working with hypnoidal dreams. Like lucid dreaming (but a lot easier to practice), liminal dreaming offers a way to experiment with consciousness, to coast the edges of imagination and dream, thought and hallucination, conscious and unconscious mind.
--> Oneironauticum: This international dream group practices dreaming with #oneirogens--any herb, practice, substance, sound, or scent that promotes or enhances dream states.
--> Urban Dreamscape: A practice of weaving dreams into architecture, turning the urban landscape into a dream journal.
