Publisher's Summary

Lucid Dreaming - conscious awareness during the dream state - is an exhilarating experience. Because the world you are experiencing is one of your own creation, you can do the impossible and consciously influence the outcome of your dreams.

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming goes far beyond the confines of pop dream psychology, establishing a scientifically researched framework for using lucid dreaming. Based on Dr. Stephen LaBerge's extensive laboratory work at Stanford University mapping mind/body relationships during the dream state, as well as the teachings of Tibetan dream yogis and the work of other scientists, including German psychologist Paul Tholey, this practical book will show you how to use your dreams to:  

  • Solve problems   
  • Gain greater confidence   
  • Improve creativity   
  • And more  

The techniques you'll learn in this exciting book will make your nightly dream journeys more enjoyable, increase your understanding of yourself, and make you realize that the possibilities of expanding consciousness are far greater than you might think.

Deep and informative

It's a very informative book, with lots of techniques and angles. It also goes into the psychological and mystical side of lucid dreaming. Highly recommended.

This was even better than his first book.

definitely a step in the right direction for anybody looking to improve the quality of their lives. this book helped me a lot. It contains some very good exercises and I would consider this the best guide out there on lucid dreaming. it also point you in the direction towards dream yoga which you can use to enhance your technique. I own this Book in hardcover, because the illustrations are very helpful. Especially the 61 point meditation. Five stars all around.

Incredibly scientific and easy to liten

I were not aware of lucid dreams until I watched a series on that and tried to find a book on the matter. I chose this one as this seems to be the most respectful one in the field and I could realized why after reading it. They’ve made several experiments in laboratory to test what induces lucid dreams, and explain us it in an extremely easy way. While I’m still not an expert, I could experience a few incredible lucid dreams myself within a few weeks since I started to read it. Totally worthwhile, I really recommend it to anyone.

fascinating subject

information was great from inducing lucid dreams to navigating the dream world. I've had 2 lucid dreams i remember 20 years ago, and while going through this and another lucid dream audiobook I was able to have a third. look forward to putting in practice the methods and experiencing many more.

Actual Science Marred by Pseudoscience.

I should have know after the first mention of "chakras" and "Tibetan dream yogis" that this book was going to be full of pseudoscience. Got about 4 chapters in before it became unlistenable nonsense. It's such a shame, too, because I've personally had lucid dreams, and they are a legitimate phenomenon worth studying, but the way this author digresses into overly-spiritual pseudoscience really does the field of lucid dreaming (along with it's credibility) a disservice. First few chapters have some great tips on how to achieve lucid dreams practically, but after that it becomes nonsense.

Interesting

Definitely an interesting listen. I think I’ll plan on buying the book so I can further dig into the exercises and have the ability to hop back and forth more easily.

This is the future of psychotherapy

While lucid dreaming may be an ancient art from Buddhist dream yoga, I do feel that the work being done by Stephen Laberge could well herald the future of psychotherapy
