Clubhouse Release Notes & Town Hall Updates

The latest release took place on Wednesday, September 15. It included better tools to manage your clubs which include: Club Admins can now delete club events that were scheduled by other Members, Club Members will no longer get notifications about every Member-created event, and Club creators can delete their old clubs right from the app. Read the full release notes here.

Sunday's town hall mostly highlighted the new release including the better admin tools for Clubs and another special announcement that they have renamed room 'topics' to 'titles' to avoid confusion with the other kind of topics on Clubhouse.

Recommended events coming up on Clubhouse

We realize that it's impossible to curate events on Clubhouse as every user has their own preferences. Additionally some of the best events are not scheduled and are created ad-hoc. With all that said, the list below includes what stood out for us and should appeal to a wide range of people. If there's anything you think we missed out, feel free to contact us.

What is Lucid Dreaming & How Can It Expand Our Awareness?


w/ Avi Hakhamanesh, Nicoline Douwes Isema, Robert Waggoner

Lucid dreaming is the ability to become consciously aware that you are dreaming while you are in the dream state. In the lucid dream world you can fly through space & create fire-breathing dragons… all in the safety of your subconscious mind. Lucid dreaming can also be used as a practical tool for personal development, spiritual growth and greater conscious awareness. Join us as we welcome Robert Waggoner, a world renown expert on lucid dreaming, who will teach us about the science, beauty and potential of it. Robert is an accomplished public speaker and the author of Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self. He served as the former President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), and is the co-editor of The Lucid Dreaming Experience – the sole online publication devoted specifically to lucid dreaming. A lucid dreamer since 1975, he has logged more than 1,000 lucid dreams. He has also been interviewed on the topic by CNN, CBS News, and ABC News.
