Humans have a deep-seated drive to experiment with consciousness, to play with our own finely tuned minds. The dream is the perfect vehicle for this kind of experimentation. Join our community and cultivate the wild and visionary experience of the dream!


The Oneironauticum is an international dream group that works with oneirogens—any substance, practice, or experience that promotes or enhances dream states. Founded in 2008, the Oneironauticum gathers on a given night to work with the same oneirogen. At least one group gathers together to sleep in the same space, while dreamers from locations around the world join remotely, all using the same oneirogen. Although they may be separated by hundreds or thousands of miles, on the night of Oneironauticum, dreamers are united community, bound by the common experience of the dream.


Urban Dreamscape: SF is a practice of weaving dreams into architecture, turning the landscape into a dream journal. Using active imagination and visualization, I overlay the buildings in my urban neighborhood with my dreams. Urban Dreamscape is a meditation on mapping, a psychogeographical research that breaks down divisions between internal and external spaces. It is a means of creating sacred space in the city. Through the practice, I explore the inner psychic spaces of my dream world, superimposing this intimate realm on top of the city where I live.

Liminal Dreaming

Liminal Dreaming is a way of working with hypnagogic and hypnopompic dream states. Channel the visions you have when you slip into sleep (hypnagogia), the thoughts that drift across the border into dream and back again while you slowly wake (hypnopompia), and the visionary weirdness of delicious naps and delirious fatigue. In these states, the meandering mind rehashes and remixes thought and experience, surfing the edge realm between conscious and unconscious. Like lucid dreaming (but considerably easier to learn), liminal dreaming offers a fascinating mode of playing with consciousness.

Dream Hacking: Explore Consciousness with Dreams at Oregon Eclipse 2017

This workshop will offer practical approaches for using dreams to play with mind. A brief review of the stages of sleep and the science behind dreaming will help participants better understand the various types of dreams and how to access those that best fit with their individual energy rhythms and sleep patterns. Participants will then learn practical exercises for working with dreams. We’ll explore ways to pry at the edges of the mind using hypnagogia and hypnapompia, those floaty and sometimes uncanny trance-like dream states we pass through as we fall into sleep at night and climb towards waking in the morning. We will also learn to work with oneirogens, anything that promotes vivid dreaming.
