I have been pursuing lucid dreaming since 2004 when I had my first unintentional lucid dream, and I've recorded them all. Here is the link to my lucid dreams which is over on the "Share Your Lucid Dreams" forum on this site.

As for recommendations; Read as much as you can on this site, which has tons of into. Try to find a technique that works for you. Be patient as lucid dreaming is a long term hobby. It takes time and effort to become good at it. Try not to get frustrated. I have quit many times out of frustration, but now I am treating it differently. I am focused on not being as obsessed with it, and just relaxing and if I don't LD any given night I'm fine with it. Also, definitely keep a dream journal. I always hated keeping a dream journal in the past. It was just a pain in the ass. But I have found it really does help tremendously. It helps you understand the difference between reality and dreams which leads to more lucid dreams. Right now I'm experimenting with being more "aware" during my waking hours. I continuously question (in my mind) "Am I dreaming?" and then examine my environment for clues that I may be dreaming. I also periodically try to "will" things to happen (move objects, make people do things, levitate, etc) and really believe I can do it. I know I can do all these things in my dreams, so I assume I am dreaming as I attempt to do them in real life. In theory, once you have developed this mindset and made it a subconscious habit, it will start showing up in your dreams more and more often and you will get lucid more and more often. I'm really hoping it will work. Here is a link to my thread on that subject on this site:

I don't know of any groups or events related to lucid dreaming in MA. It seems lucid dreamers are a very small group.

I wish you the best in your lucid dreaming pursuits. Good luck. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.
