What is lucid dreaming?

Lucid dreaming is a state of consciousness and awareness while you are dreaming. This is the most opportune way to go into the deepest parts of yourself and explore, while also gaining signs and symbols from a higher power. You can tap into creativity, receive messages from something higher or your own subconscious, and discover parts of yourself you never could see.

Lucid is connected to the element of Ether, is all about realizing that there is magic in every mundane thing you do, starting with dreaming. The first step in owning your power is waking up to your subconscious. When you choose to immerse yourself here, you say yes to an adventure that is profound, powerful, and all yours. You say yes to using your own inner alchemy to turn the impossible, possible, going so fearlessly into your own truth that you become the protagonist of your own novel. You also say yes to becoming the author of your own book. You can write and rewrite and develop anything you would like. This is your first step towards coming home to yourself. The Lucid Kit leaves nothing out to fully own every part of this experience and embody it.

Kozmic Ryder is finally here.

Kozmic Ryder is here to remind you of your unique magic and infuse it in every single thing you do — that is your life purpose. Kozmic Ryder provides experiential kits, an online community, and in-person events for people to show up completely as they are with experiences that focus on the Self, Connection, and Community. There are no students and no masters here — it is a collective looking to transform the way life itself is perceived. You are sovereign, but never alone.

Kozmic Ryder helps break through the stereotypes, expectations, and BS about what it means to be a “spiritual being” having a “spiritual experience.” Here, we drop the expectations and the pressure. Spirituality is in every person and in every moment. Whether you’re on the dance floor at a club or meditating on a mountain — you are here, alive, for a reason. Make it magical.

Kozmic Ryder is for the ones who value empowerment, accessibility, connection, authenticity, and equality. It is time to hear your own messages. It is time to feel free, heard, safe, understood, empowered, worthy, and magical. Because you are. The journey can be solitary, virtual or with others – you choose, and Kozmic Ryder provides the tools.

Let’s rewrite stories and write new narratives. Let’s own every single strength and vulnerability. Let’s go deep into ourselves and impact our community. When you say yes to this journey, you say yes to igniting the fire that is inside of you and letting it illuminate the direction you need to go in.
Kozmic Ryder is your reminder of why life is worth living. Connect with yourself, each other, the elements, the cosmos, and something higher. Life is not a dress rehearsal, let’s get everything we can out of it. Let’s do spirituality differently. Let’s all be open and curious, live with integrity, and totally, rawly authentic. And, most importantly, let’s laugh, listen to good music, connect, and feel it all.

Welcome to your life, glad you’re here.


Meet The Creator.

Ani Ferlise is the founder of Kozmic Ryder, an enigmatic, no-nonsense solution for those looking to discover their magic and purpose in life. At just 25-years-old, Ani has a deep and different understanding of entrepreneurship. Growing up as the daughter of ALEX AND ANI founder, Carolyn Rafaelian, Ani learned that what you create becomes a living reflection of self and a way to leave an imprint on the world, a sentiment for which she designed her business.

Ani has spent much of her life on a path to understand spirituality. To do this, she studied many religions, practices and healing modalities including aromatherapy, sacred beekeeping, astrology and herbalism; she worked at a goddess temple; and completed a shamanic herbal apprenticeship where she became initiated as a green witch. In addition to all of this, she is a Reiki Master and holds an English degree from Southern Oregon University, and studied Religion at Hofstra University. To further her spiritual quest, Ani blended together her love of writing and religion to study many different spiritual practices, both in school and in numerous cultural ceremonies. She is currently continuing her exploration of other forms of mystery, like dreaming, numerology, tarot, and palmistry. Her mission is to make it all accessible and practical for any walk of life.

Ani currently resides in Rhode Island where she designs experiences for Kozmic Ryder, and Portland, Oregon where she goes to spend time on her spiritual studies. She is passionate about people, magic and writing, and is close to finishing her first book. When asked what inspires her she says:
