Treat yourself to a wonderful weekend of lucid dream exploration. We’ll explore the creative, healing, wild and spiritual aspects of lucidity in a small group.

What will we do on the Lucid Dreaming Ocean Retreat?

On the first evening we’ll do a clifftop lucidity meditation and go for dinner together. The next two days, we’ll meet for dream sharing and transformative dreamwork techniques each morning and there will be two dedicated lucid dreaming workshops each day, with one last lucidity workshop and dream sharing session on the final morning. Lucidity workshops will be interspersed with meditations, nature walks, free time to swim/surf/nap/journal, and a group excursion. We have lucidity discussions over dinner every night. You can enjoy this lucid holiday by visiting dreamlike grottoes, chilling out by the Atlantic Ocean, or going on boat trips… whatever takes your fancy. 

Tuition with Dr Clare Johnson in the form of in-depth lucid dream workshops, morning dream group, lucidity discussions, transformative healing & creativity techniques, beach meditations and more is €399 euros (about £335). Or bring a friend and benefit from the Friend Price of €299 each (about £250). Early Bird price for the May retreat is €299 and expires on 15th December 2019. The tuition-only price excludes food and accommodation, which are very reasonable off-season in Portugal. Nearest airport is Faro. Contact or use the “Contact” page of this website for further details and to secure your place on this retreat – spaces are very limited as this is intended to be a small group. 

For the June 11-14 retreat, tuition prices are the same, and the Early Bird price of €299 euros expires on February 15th, 2020. 

The lovely coastal town of Cascais is our base for the June Lucid Dreaming Ocean Retreat, with gorgeous beaches and stunning ocean views

After the October retreat ended, those of us who didn’t have to travel immediately hung out on the beautiful beach and did a final yoga nidra session 🙂


           Portugal is so beautiful, it captures your heart and makes you want to dance! The perfect place to dive deeply into lucid dreaming.
