The International Association for the Study of Dreams will present its second online conference on The Many Worlds of Lucid Dreaming. The conference will offer presentations on the many facets of the lucid dreaming universe, ranging from practical "How To's" to explorations into psi, healing, philosophy, and spirituality, as well as the latest cutting edge scientific research.

Moreover, you will explore how to utilize the lessons of lucidity and bring them into your waking, day-to-day life so that you can live more lucidly. Naturally, bringing greater awareness into your waking life can lead to greater lucid dreaming. Similarly, learning how intent, expectation, beliefs and focus influence your lucid dreaming can give you liberating insights into how to use those same mental activities in your waking life - and consciously co-create a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life.

At the MWLD conference participants have an opportunity to explore a spectrum of lucid dreaming topics, AND to interact in depth with twelve acknowledged experts and a host of other very experienced lucid dreaming participants for over two weeks. MWLD does not work the way online conferences do, which generally offer a variety of packaged video presentations, but where the possibilities for interactions between participants and presenters, if offered at all, seems extremely limited. At MWLD presentations consist primarily of text (in pdf files), although some presentations also include Zoom sessions, PowerPoints, and text-based Chat room sessions.

For the first twelve days at the MWLD, at 9 AM Pacific time, one or two new presentations on different lucid dreaming topics will become available, along with presentation threads on the Conference Discussion Forum, where participants can post comments or ask questions. All presenters have all agreed to respond to questions on their threads for at least three days – and I expect most will continue to respond so long as the thread remains active. New material – which may include diagrams, graphics, and embedded videos - will become available on these presentation threads, depending on the needs of the participants. And these 15 presentation topics just seems the beginning, as aside from the main Conference Discussion Forum where the Discussion threads for these presentations will go up, MWLD also offers three other venues for Q & A’s and for interactions between participants and presenters:

First, the Dream Sharing Forum, where participants can post a dream and start new threads, where presenters and participants can respond and comment.
Second, a Special Topics Forum, where participants can start new threads on ANY lucid dreaming topic that especially interests them, especially those not covered in the twelve formal presentations, where presenters and participants can and will respond and comment.
And Third, a Conference Chat Room – text based – which presenters and participants can reserve, where they can interact in real time, or use at any time on any day on any topic when not reserved.

Summing up, at the MWLD participants have an opportunity to interact with 15 lucid dreaming experts as well as other participants - many of them very experienced lucid dreamers themselves for over two weeks on pretty much ANY subject in the Many Worlds of Lucid Dreaming - not just the presentation topics. In fact, at the MWLD conference presentations - whether text, videos, or Zoom meetings - largely serve as starting points, to get a discussion thread going on a particular topic, but where the in depth participant-presenter interactions that follow provides the real value and the main course!
