Jennifer Dumpert - Liminal Dreaming: Exploring Consciousness at the Edges of Sleep

Liminal dreaming occurs at the boundaries of consciousness between waking and sleep. Hypnagogia, the hallucinatory 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 dreaming. This talk will offer guidance for how to locate and linger in liminal dreams. We’ll also look at ways to use liminal dreaming for creativity, problem solving, mental and physical healing, and consciousness exploration.
