The School of Night
Host: Madame X & Deacon Gray
The School of Night is a sharing of knowledge, insight and perspectives. The wise minds of the past Sir Walter Raleigh, Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Chapman, and many others were its members. They were Poets, Scientists, Philosophers and Atheists in a time when the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant faith warred over the souls of men, and science and thought were considered evils. We are the new School of Night, people thinking outside of the box into the spiritual realms and into the darkness where others fear loosing their souls...we are those who hide in plain site and conjure in line with our paths...we are equals, we are thinkers, we are comrades in the dark.

Here we dip our quill into many ink wells, be it Vampirism, Spiritualism, Chaos Magick, the Left Hand Path, or Sexual Vampirism. In camaraderie we gather, as friends we discuss debate, perhaps even flirt a little, and share with each other the life that we have created with in our family and community.

The Path of the Crone
Administrator: Madame X
“The Path of the Crone” is a group created to share cheer, support, advice, provide remedies, magic, affirmations, warmth, wisdom, insight and any product of our minds’ joy, strength and unrest. We welcome all Crones, all Nightkind Sisters who are 40+, be you vampire, witch, or friend, to join us in word and spirit as we fearlessly walk our very own Path of the Crone. The Crone has a unique purpose and a critical role to play in shaping our Community, our Families, and our personal future as we strive to improve not only our lives, but also the unfolding of all we cherish. Here we may post our fears, joyful moments, and memories, our gained courage, our savvy or dread, as we discuss our individual journey, as our body ages, as our insight grows, as we become mothers and grandmothers, wives and widows… as we fight battles with illness and medical procedures, stress and anxiety, and as we manifest experiences of love, intimacy and connectivity that only the heart and soul of a mature woman can truly understand.

The Briar Patch
Administrator: Madame X
The Briar Patch is a group for the discussion of sacred & spiritual experience within the bdsm context. Often, connecting with the sacred or spiritual comes for some only after physical limits have been pushed to the extreme. Historically we can see this in the act of self-flagellation by monks, or other extreme practices of Hindu, Buddhist, or Occult devotees. BDSM offers a prime way of bringing us to that brink where we can let all else fall away and connect truly with our core and the Divine. It is the intention to keep this secret group relatively small and selective. We are looking for individuals that have bdsm experience and are looking to take it to a more meaningful and potentially spiritual level. We are also looking for critical thinkers and those who dare to question their own beliefs, preconceptions, limitations, and natures. The Group deals with extreme sexual content, and enjoyment. Only mature discussions are allowed.

Sexual Vampire
Hosts: Deacon Gray and Gigi Frost
This closed group welcomes you and encourages healthy discussion and open dialogue about sexual vampirism and the issues surrounding this. What is sexual vampirism? Well, sexual vampirism is not a single thing -- it is a collection of feeding styles that have to have some element of sexuality in it to make it effective. In this room, we hope to aide in research and education regarding the sexual vampire community as a sub-group of the vampire community, and to offer a safe space for those looking to know more and connect with others like themselves. You are allowed to post about topics related to sexual vampirism.

Host: NyxFury
This group is dedicated to hilarious messages or exchanges from dating sites, facebook, twitter or comments from other sites where snark and sarcasm are the response. If you get easily offended this is not the group for you, but if you are witty and snarky or just love to have a good laugh than join our group! Must have fun and not be a buzzkiller or we will feed you to the Snarknado.

The Collective Videos
Administrators: Asif Murad and Herr Wulfsunus
The Collective Videos bring together not one, but many view points on what it is to be vampire, not just living, real, or lifestyle; rather instead, all views. This collection of video interviews hosted by Madame X in 2010 – 2013 is the body of work created by the House of the Dreaming and the Vampyre Lounge. While this project has been discontinued, we hope this video archive serves to offer a non-partisan approach with a variety of perspectives on issues of continued community interest.

Tarot By Genoveva
Host: Genoveva Rossi
Genoveva is a natural intuitive and a gifted and experienced psychic, spiritualist, and tarot reader. She also reads palms and runes. Her reading style is paired with her clairvoyant ability. Over the years Genoveva has read at many psychic fairs, private readings and events, in and out of the tri-statearea, including NYC area Vampire Community gatherings like Dark Water. On herpage she often posts notes that touch upon the heart and spirit offering thoughts on Love, Strength, Happiness and Good Fortune. Genoveva can give you wisdom and perspective in any and every situation, and is available for events, private in-person readings, as well as remote readings via phone, Skype e-mail, etc...

Art Of The Vampire
Host: by Asif Murad
Discussions relating to vampire fanfare such as books, history, folklore, poetry, art, movies, etc. This group does NOT deal with "vampire community" or "scene" matters. It's primary purpose is to celebrate the artistic faculty that is related to the origins, myths and history of the vampire persona. Come one, come all…and enter freely! And leave some of the happiness you bring.

Vampyre Lounge
Host: Asif Murad
The vampyre Lounge is a video project archive covering the events in the vampyre and gothic lifestyle. The main purpose of The Vampyre Lounge is to present the Vamp/Goth scene in it's true form. No stereotypes, just the real people speaking their own mind. The vamp/goth scenes are very much vilified by the general media and also in this world of fundamental die hards who have chosen their own brand of crazy religious beliefs where anyone or anything that looks or thinks differently than the so called “norm” is to be shunned and hated, it is I think a good idea to have a visual forum where everyone and anyone can come and see what these folks are really all about. So in effect, The Vampyre Lounge is a platform for the vampyre and gothic lifestylers to have their own say.

It is with great pleasure that we at House of the Dreaming share this with our Nightkind Brothers and Sisters, not only to serve as positive inspiration but also to invite you to join us and share in our joy of learning and socializing.
