The Art of Falling Asleep letters_edited
A proprietary sleep system that aligns the mind, body and nervous system with sleep in a pre-bed routine.

The people I help already do more than is necessary in order to sleep but unconsciously create much of the resistance they feel before bedtime. In my experience, the most important ingredient in the healing of chronic insomnia is not another diet, biohacking tool or supplement, but an effective way of consciously and unconsciously processing your energy and resistance before bed.  

Hi, my name is Derek Lacey and I am here to help you facilitate the sleep process. Over the last 8 years working as an insomnia coach, I have curated a sequence for falling and staying asleep that helps you relate to, process, and alchemize the common modern-day resistance to sleep, so that you can begin sleeping better in the short term, as your neurological pathways rewire to experience a long lasting transformation. 

Guided by more adaptive sleep principles and concepts, this method effectively aligns what the mind intends with what the body experiences on its way to connection & restoration. 


Unlike common relaxation techniques or more rigid CBT-I strategies, this method is derived from the farthermost and comprehensive view of sleep, in order to recreate how all facets of mind, body and spirit once naturally aligned to repurpose sleep resistance into sleep momentum. 

This is what I refer to as the Art of Falling Asleep, the way you consciously navigate that intersection within you where circadian biology, philosophy and spirituality meet to articulate the very sacred act of sleep. 


The result is the most simple path to sleep, by way of your natural intelligence. 

If you would like to learn more about how you can work with me and begin using this sleep facilitation process to channel your efforts to sleep more appropriately, please use the link below to schedule a call. 

There are 3 main reasons why people struggle to heal emotional insomnia:

  1. They don't understand where the mental and emotional resistance is coming from and what to do about it.

  2. They don't know how to build on the sleep they are already getting in order to increase their confidence to sleep. 

  3. They don’t have a reliable process for transitioning or crossing over into sleep.

One frustrating consequence of this is trying really hard to overpower these challenges with hacks and supplements you may not even need.

Aligning sleep with all aspects of life, cognitively, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Let's take a deeper dive into the phenomenon of sleep.

From Some of Our Clients



 "Derek really helped me dive inward, to understand the root causes of my issues with sleep, and as we dug, we inevitably find more than we could have imagined. His techniques and strategies are well thought out, and work fantastically. Working with him not only has me sleeping well, but my perspective on many important aspects of my life have changed for the better."



"I was really impacted by our time together, some things really just shifted. One of them being that I rarely think about insomnia as the problem. As a result, my sleep started bringing specific messages for me - and I listened. It’s been more like developing a friendship, rather than solving a problem. Almost every night I sleep well, but even when I have a shorter night, the sleep is usually really good!"



“Working with Derek led me to learn what my sleep really needed to be great, things I never would have encountered on my own. I learned that exploration is integral to my spirit and sleep. I learned I had a deep-rooted fear of things going awry… coaching helped me discover the parts of that which were unfounded and reveal I was safe. Knowing this allows me to sleep. Coaching led me to so many different concepts that allow me to sleep.”



"I discovered that I have full control over my mind and the thoughts and behaviors that create good sleep. I look forward to sleep now and to waking up refreshed. And even though life throws curveballs that inevitably interfere with sleep, the fact that I now know how to get back on track every time is priceless. I know that I’m going to sleep no matter what. Derek, thank you for teaching me the tools and showing me how to become SLEEP CONFIDENT." 

 "Coaching with Derek has taken me on a journey I never expected to experience. Derek is so easy to talk to and I was able to open up to him and talk about things I wanted to change in my life. My heart is filled with gratitude now that I can sleep soundly every night! I still can't believe it. I am forever changed!”


"Derek is a brilliant, compassionate and totally packed with knowledge and experience to help you with not only sleep issues, but the deeper issues that create sleeplessness in the first place. He partners with you to make YOU the expert on YOU and resolve your issues yourself.  He does this all with such an amazing presence, sense of humor and relaxed attitude that it makes it easy to show up and change."


"Finding Derek the sleep coach was probably one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. He truly is a miracle worker, it seems so unreal to me, but Derek has transformed my life. I’m now a sleeper! I never thought I would say those words. In less than 6 weeks, he was able to take me from a chronic insomniac to someone who regularly sleeps through an ENTIRE night! He is the real deal, hire him already!"


"Derek's ingenious approach to coaching is about tapping one's own intuition, I was finally able to cast aside decades of arcane regimens that only worked in the short term. Now I'm sleeping better, exercising smarter, eating wisely, and it's all with my own north star of inner guidance."
