(also spelled Sengoi and Sng'oi) are a Malaysian hunting and gathering
people who were reported to make extensive use of lucid dreaming
to ensure happiness and mental health
The original field research was done by Kilton Stewart before the Second World War and published in the early 1950s. Parapsychologist Charles Tart and pedagogue George Leonard later publicized Stewart's account in books and at the Esalen Institute retreat center.
Later researchers were unable to substantiate Stewart's account. In 1985 G. William Domhoff argued in The Mystique of Dreams that the anthropologists who have worked with the Temiar/Senoi people report that they are familiar with the concept of lucid dreaming and that it is not of great importance to them.
