My name is Tadas Stumbrys. I am a psychologist, lecturer and researcher. Two main fields of my interest and scientific research are lucid dreaming and mindfulness.
Lucid dreams are dreams during which the dreamer becomes aware that he or she is dreaming and often can influence the dream content. I have been involved in lucid dream research since 2008, when I had the first my own lucid dream. I became fascinated by this amazing our inner world, its realness, depth, and possibilities within it. In this topic with colleagues we have conducted different studies and published a number of articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Lucid dreams, their induction and application in sports was also the topic of my doctoral dissertation at Heidelberg University – the oldest university in Germany. I am a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, where I served as a Board Member.
For the last several years I have also developed an interest in mindfulness, both in research and practice. I have a postgraduate certificate in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy from Lithuanian University of Health Sciences and am a member of Lithuanian Association for Mindfulness-Based Psychology.
Currently I am based in Lithuania where I am running seminars and workshops on lucid dreams and mindfulness and working academically.
