Dr. Clare Johnson is one of the top experts on lucid dreaming in the world. She was the past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams and the first person in the world to do a PhD on lucid dreaming as a creative tool. She has since researched lucid dreaming tirelessly for twenty-two years, and for the past twelve has taught practical courses on how to access the deep creative and healing potential of the unconscious. Her work on lucid dreaming has been featured in documentaries, magazines, anthologies, radio shows, television and she regularly speaks at international venues. A novelist, prize-winning short story writer, and poet, Clare is the author of Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Lucid Dreaming, Mindful Lucid Dreaming, and two lucid dream–inspired novels: Breathing in Colour and Dreamrunner which explore the topics of healing trauma and nightmares respectively through lucid dreaming. She also co-edited a book on children’s dreams and nightmares, Sleep Monsters and Superheroes: Empowering Children through Creative Dreamplay. Her latest book is The Art of Lucid Dreaming. Clare leads Lucid dreaming Ocean retreats in Portugal. You can find out about those, connect and explore all kinds of cool lucid dream related things she shares at her website
