Why Night Club?
Night Club is a groundbreaking venture. Its mission is to establish and nurture an international community of students and teachers who have an interest in these extraordinary practices.
The nighttime meditations are solitary by nature, and the study of mind is subtle and strewn with obstacles. Ongoing encouragement, advice, and guidance are critical to success.
In addition to the important social aspects, Night Club also doubles as a “Night School,”
with six main classes of study in its curriculum.

Ongoing Interaction with Andrew
Andrew is deeply committed to making himself available to members of the Club, via the live webinars, and the ongoing Discourse and Facebook Community pages. These are all places where members can submit their questions.
The first two tracks in the series of webinars are “The Benefits of Lucid Dreaming” and “How to Lucid Dream”. The webinar series will continue on with tracks on dream yoga, sleep yoga, bardo yoga (death & dying) and other subjects related to the study of mind.
In Andrew’s own training, he has found that interaction with a teacher is invaluable. This is especially so with the subtle nocturnal meditations. These practices are still the “road less traveled,” but that doesn’t mean you have to travel this road alone, or without a guide.
Live Webinars with Andrew Each Month
Andrew will offer bimonthly live webinars to present the main teaching material, and to take questions from the community. These ongoing (and then archived) teachings will keep you on track, and keep you motivated.
This is your chance to connect directly with Andrew in real time and get his thoughts around any particular inquiry that may be coming up for you as you study. No stone will be left unturned in giving you all the support you need.
Private Discourse and Facebook Community
Knowing that you are not alone in the solitary adventure of these subtle topics and practices is a major benefit of joining Night Club. While your immediate friends and family may not share your passion for deeply investigating the nature of mind and reality, sleep and dreams and the bardos, you will find people in Night Club from all over the world that do.
While they may live 3000 miles from you, in Night Club, you’ll find other like-minded people who are experiencing similar things, asking the same questions, facing the same challenges as you are.
Our Discourse community is a state-of-the-art forum that is both easy-to-use and powerful. The Discourse platform allows for the seamless sharing of topics and exchanging of ideas amongst Night Club members.
Our members-only Facebook group is for our Night Club members who enjoy engaging on Facebook.
We regularly update both Discourse and Facebook with the latest posts from Night Club!
Share Your Experiences
The Night Club forum will provide you with a place to gather and make friends. You’ll be able to ask questions, share your dreams, your successes and failures, and your aspirations.
Support Your Practice
Being able to connect with people who will support your interest in these practices and help you stay motivated in your journey is key to success. Having a community where you can reach out and ask for help is integral in these subtle practices. You’ll also be able to freely share your own recommendations and advice.
Collaborate to Improve What You Get from Nightclub
The development of Night Club will be an interactive process that continually evolves the user experience based upon member feedback and areas of interest.
In addition to Andrew developing and curating resources and helpful content, the most powerful value of Night Club will come through the interaction and feedback from community members.
Andrew's Latest Writing
Members will have exclusive access to Andrew’s latest writings, and the opportunity to help him with insight, feedback, and inspiration as he writes future articles and books. For example, “Here’s the next chapter from my latest book. What do you think?” If there’s a resource or teacher you think he should look into, you’ll have the chance to let him know. His last book, Dream Yoga; Illuminating Your Life Through Lucid Dreaming and the Tibetan Yogas of Sleep was just the first of four books he is working on. The second one, Dreams of Light: The Profound Daytime Practice of Lucid Dreaming was just sent to his publisher. The third one, also just sent to his publisher, is The Lucid Dreaming Workbook. And the fourth book he is working on now is tentatively called The Lost Temple of Sleep: Integral Lucid Dreaming and the Path of Awakening.
The Latest News
Members will have access to the latest articles, studies, posts, and any other breaking information from experts around the world. This will serve as an electronic library, or resource center, culled from our own web searches and those offered collectively by members. Members can offer their recommendations on the community page, and we will monitor those offerings and add them in this Latest News resource center. As a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Dr. Holecek will forward the latest pertinent studies and articles about sleep and dream that he regularly receives from the Academy.

Daily Whispers of Wisdom
Members of Night Club will receive a daily offering from Andrew and other experts in the field. These will come in the form of inspirational excerpts from books, articles, studies and podcasts that are a few sentences in length. To paraphrase the scholar Huston Smith, the path of awakening/lucidity, “is to transform flashes of illumination into abiding light.” Each morning a flash from some luminary will appear in your mailbox, lighting up your day. This will be an optional benefit. You have to sign up to receive these Whispers — we don’t want to be obtrusive. Click here to sign up.
Take a look at your experience…. everything you do is mediated by your mind.

More about Andrew…
I have been a member of Night Club from its inception and have rarely missed a live Webinar. Not only are Andrew’s instructions informative and clear, but there is always time when he addresses our questions. Equally valuable are the interviews with leading specialists in the world of Lucid Dreaming, including Stephen LaBerge, Evan Thompson, Ken Wilber, and Alan Wallace, to name a few.
