Lucid dreaming is one of the ways of accessing mystical and paranormal experiences.

She will focus on her research on transpersonal experiences in lucid dreaming and her art-based research on the parallel between lucid dreaming and paintings. She will discuss her dialogues on this topic with two surrealist painters Roberto Matta and Gordon Onslow Ford which is the subject of her work, Arts and Exploration of Consciousness in her award-winning book Gordon Onslow Ford: A man on a Green Island, 2019.

She has taught lucid dreaming since 1984 and was part of the team at the Stanford Sleep Laboratory Lucidity Project in 1980’s exploring the science of lucid dreaming. She conducted the first quantitative research on the transpersonal experiences in lucid dreaming; Experiencing the Divine in Lucid Dream State (1989).
