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.

"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."

"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!"

- Marci

"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."

- Vanessa

 "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!”
