I discovered Night Club after seeing Andrew speak at The Shift Network’s 2022 Dreamwork Summit. I am new to lucid dreaming; I don’t believe I have ever had a lucid dream. I began recording dreams in 2016 and have been participating in a daytime dream group since 2019. I have experienced several precognitive or premonition dreams, one regarding my father’s death and another regarding my dissolution of marriage. I also had a shared death experience (during the night) when my father died in 2018. I am in a state of transition in my life. I enjoy day hiking and recently trained as a death doula. I am excited about this community, especially the book group and the meditation group.
Welcome to the Night Club! Glad you made it to one of Andrew’s webinars. This is a great place to meet other 'Clubbers and ask Andrew questions and listen to his riffs on whatever comes up. What did you think about, or get from the Friday webinar?
Welcome to the club. I was in a very similar situation to you when I joined thismyear in the Spring. having been a member for about 6 months, I have already had 2 Lucid dreams this year! That is more than I have had in my entire life! I know it it because of Andrews work and the help from many great members on here.
I also am no stranger to premonition dreams. Would really love to hear about your experiences with them. When I joined I finally begrudgingly decided to start doing a dream journal, and I am now very happy I did. I have had at least 5 premonition dreams since becoming a member, and that is more than I can remember having in my entire life. This is a very powerful community for growth!
What is a “death doula.”?
Wishing you much luck with the transition and on your journy.
About the Friday webinar (my first) – a lot of new terminology. Just taking it all in. Not overwhelmed, but a lot to process. I have ordered two of Andrew’s books and am looking forward to book club this week.
Hello @NightHawk999. Thank you for the welcome and for sharing your experience with lucid dreaming. I like to think of my premonition dreams as preparation dreams. At the time I had them, I didn’t know what they were foretelling. It was weeks or months after the dreams (and the related events) that I saw the connection. In each case, the dream then served as reassurance – that what had transpired was intended, already in the works, etc. A death doula is trained to provide emotional, spiritual, and logistical support at end of life (non-medical). Most death doulas (also called end-of-life doulas) are self-employed and work directly with the dying or with the loved ones. I look forward to offering dreamwork as part of my death doula services.
I got both last week as well. I have been reading them and at the same time, playing andrews video in the background, which I have found to be enormously helpful (his commentary really helps unpack the complexity and depth in the texts)
Do you keep a dream journal? Do you write in it every day?
I was blown away by how powerful this practice is, If I had not done this, I would have lost almost all of the premonition dreams that I have had in the past 6 months.
I had never heard of a death doula before, that sounds like very rewarding and meaningful work.
