Stephen LaBerge

Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. laid the groundwork for his pioneering breakthroughs in lucid dreaming research two decades ago while obtaining his Ph.D. in psychophysiology at Stanford University. Since then he has been continuing work at Stanford studying lucid dreaming and psychophysiological correlates of states of consciousness. In 1988, acting on his conviction that lucid dreaming offers many benefits to humanity, Dr. LaBerge founded the Lucidity Institute, the mission of which is to advance research on the nature and potentials of consciousness and to apply the results of this research to the enhancement of human health and well-being.
