This is the year we wake up! For six years we have been in our festival Dream School learning how to live a lucid life. Now is the time to wake up from our dreaming and step boldly in our future with service and purpose. Dave Zaboski is this year’s Lucid University Headmaster and, along with his fantastic crew of Art Temple Creators, will host an overview class for all participants designed to wake you up and give you real tools to step boldly from your dreams into your highest reality. Dave will share with you the Creative Keys, used by Masters to train masters throughout time and across disciplines. Sharing techniques learned from the great artists at Disney and beyond, you will learn:

  • An Operating System for creativity, innovation and mastery
  • Creative practices for being more true to yourself
  • A clearer vision of how you can serve the world and fulfill your purpose
  • A deeper connection to a heart centered community committed to uplifting life
  • How much fun it is to be surrounded by creative activated people!
