Lucid Dreaming Ocean Retreats

with Dr. Clare Johnson


Our beloved Lucid Dreaming Ocean Retreats are happening again! Join global lucidity teacher Dr. Clare Johnson in fabulous Portugal for a 3-Day Ocean Retreat in May 2022.

 Sunset reality checks on the clifftops with our October 2021 group of beautiful lucid dreamers

Treat yourself to a wonderful long weekend of lucid dream exploration. We’ll explore the creative, healing, wild and spiritual aspects of lucidity in a small group in stunning nature. It’s a lucid holiday with a fascinating and supportive family of like-minded lucid dreamers. 

2022 Dates

Retreat #1: 6pm on Thursday, May 5 to 2.30pm on Sunday, May 8

Retreat #2: 6pm on Wednesday, May 11 to 2.30pm on Saturday, May 14.


What will we do on the Lucid Dreaming Ocean Retreat?

On the first evening we’ll do a beach/clifftop lucidity meditation and go for dinner together. 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, yoga nidra journeys, and a group excursion. We have wonderful lucidity discussions over dinner every night to deepen all that we are learning. 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. 

Contact to put your name on the list. Spaces are very limited as these are intended to be small groups for maximum benefit to participants. Resgistration opens mid-Feb, details coming via our newsletter.

What lucid dreaming ocean retreat attendees are saying…

Amazing retreat, with an amazing teacher who has endless wisdom on all levels of dreaming and spirituality. She really trusts the process, herself, the universe! Best decision of my life to attend this retreat.

My mind is still blown and being actively lucid since I got up this morning has already had incredible results for me. My entire outlook has changed and I’m amazed at what I am seeing in other people. 

I had a very different lucid dreaming experience on the first night.

It felt like a holiday while also gaining valuable knowledge, tools and insights to further one’s lucid dream journey. 

We are a very harmonious group, thank you Clare to have made that alchemy possible.

I feel like I am bursting with joy – hard to contain it 🙂 

A very deep and beautiful experience. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to get in touch with his inner self through dreams.

I loved the sense of being together as a small dream family! I will cherish this memory forever!

Thank you Clare for reopening a part of me again towards a deeper and more vivid contact with the numinous world through your big example! Life is full of marvellous influences, visitations, help and archetypal forces. I am grateful for that rediscovery!

I love the energy of a small group of dreamers from all over the world, coming together in a picturesque setting like this. It’s relaxed, but it’s also deep and profound dreamwork.

My waking life and outlook has improved greatly and I felt like the trip was much needed therapy on many levels.

I learned so much and this will help me in all areas of life. I recommend this experience to anyone who is fascinated with their dreams and wants to learn more. 

A smart and bright new way to look at dreams, make them our friends and use them as the key to explore new realms in a relaxing way, become lucid not only in dreams but more lucid in our life.

Very touched by Clare’s compassion and support. Insightful and humorous, Clare brings clarity into the mysterious realm of dreams.

I feel I have been given a gift and I will use it wisely.

Clare has chosen an amazing dreaming-like place, close to the sea and to a very typical village, full of nice restaurants. I had a very good time with Clare and the group of people coming from all over the world to join this retreat. We have been practicing short meditations, dream interpretation, lucid dreaming induction techniques and also having much fun together.

Thank you Clare for an enlightening and unique seminar, for your true kindness and your great advice.

The conversation, understanding and connection shared with amazing like-minded individuals went beyond my expectations.

What a dream! Thank you so much Clare for this amazing retreat, it was like a dream.
