Dr. Clare Johnson is a global lucidity teacher and a pioneer in the field. She was the first person in the world to earn a PhD in lucid dreaming as a creative tool. Past president and CEO of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, she is the author of seven dream books, including The Art of Lucid Dreaming.
Clare creates deep lucid dreaming video courses, with guided meditations and musical lucid journeys to open up the magical world of dreams. Her 30-day Power of Dreams course has attracted many thousands of participants.
A prolific lucid dreamer, Clare became fascinated by the rich world of dreams and nightmares at the early age of three. She began a lifelong journey deep into the mysterious inner universe of the soul. Her groundbreaking book Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Lucid Dreaming explores cosmic sleep experiences such as floating in the sparkling black void, and encountering the lucid light — the baseline state of consciousness from which we emerge at birth and return to when we die.
A creative artist, novelist, and prize-winning short story writer, Clare's lucid-dream-inspired novels are Breathing in Colour and Dreamrunner. Passionate about helping children and adults have a happier dreamlife, she is co-editor of a book on children’s dreams and nightmares, Sleep Monsters & Superheroes. Her book Dream Therapy (Mindful Dreaming is the U.S. title) has been translated into many languages. Her latest book is The Art of Transforming Nightmares, a book on scary dreams, sleep paralysis, the power of the shadow, and how to overcome fear in order to embrace a life of wonder, playfulness, and mystery.
