What is lucid dreaming?

Lucid dreaming is conscious awareness reactivated during the dream state.  Lucidity means Clarity – mental clarity of the fact that you’re dreaming during the dream.

Is this considered mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a practice of enhancing mental clarity and awareness.  Lucid dreaming is a very similar skillset, just during a different state of consciousness.

How do I practice lucid dreaming?

There are many steps involved in practicing, but generally it’s simple:  Keep a dream journal, take a mindful approach, learn and practice the techniques and exercises in the app.
