Death and Lucid Living with Sahlah Dubel

Dreaming can help us prepare for and recover from loss, but how do we continue to engage with Spirit during our waking lives? Today, we have a conversation about Lucid Living with Sahlah Dubel. This is a rebroadcast of a August 2022 show. Stay tuned for updates about Divine by Design at the end of the show.

Sahlah shares several stories about the recent passage of her mother and how her dreams both prepared her for the event and helped her process her grief around it. She speaks about practices she uses to bring dreams into her waking life including gentle awakening, journaling and mindfully sitting with the feelings of the dream. She suggests that dreaming is a sentient entity that we can be in relationship with and sings a song for us that she wrote about a dream that helped her make a major decision for her family.

BIO: Sahlah is co-founder of Divine by Design, a corporation dedicated to supporting community resilience and holistic wellness. As a generational dreamer, dream integration was essential to her family’s paradigm for emotional wellness. Her spiritual journey includes immersive meditation practices, strategies for detoxification, and a profound understanding of the healing qualities of movement, song, prayer, and nature. She’s facilitates dreaming workshops providing techniques to navigate dreams and embrace lucid living.
