I made the whole site?
~ Even though I'm an artist I've always had an intrest in science
and the borders of science and this site is a creative expansion
of that intrest. The actual idea for this Lucid Dojo site came from
a book lent to me by my GoJu ryu sensei. In that book I found out
that one of the kata's I practice was taught to a founder of the
style by a man in a dream, the description sounded just like a lucid
dream to me and made me want to make a place for myself and others
to practice whilst lucid.
I chose the Reiyukai centre ~ I chose to use my own
dojo at the The Reiyukai centre 24 St Mary's, Duke St, Norwich,
to make it easy to make the dojo as I had a real life space to recreate.
Also it helps me and the others that use the Reiyukai centre get
to the Lucid Dojo, as its used by many styles of martial art it
seemed appropriate and as its a real place I think it helps to make
the Lucid version feel more real. I just went into the real (Reiyukai)
dojo last night and it was very weird to be there after a weekend
of creating a virtual version!
saying its a hot bed of Lucid Dreamers for anyone wishing to visit,
as far as I can tell it is a centre for some very serious martial
arts training. This is a list of the styles offered at the centre.
