Learn the Art of Lucid Dreaming

Lucid Dreaming, or the ability to become consciously aware of dreaming while in the dream state, has been scientifically validated since 1980. Once aware within the dream, you have a special platform of awareness from which to access inner creativity, promote psychological growth and even encourage physical healing.

Robert Waggoner taught himself a simple technique in 1975 to become lucidly aware, and presents a two-week introductory workshop on this fascinating subject and how to have lucid dreams. As you pay attention to your dreams and dream symbols, you gain insight into yourself (as Justina Lasley covers in her Dream Interpretation workshop). Lucid dreaming assists in this effort by allowing you to actively seek insights about dream symbols, dream figures and more.

Lucid dreaming does not mean ‘control’ of the dream; rather, it shows us clearly that we are involved in a set of profound inner relationships (often with our own ideas, beliefs and emotions). Much of this workshop will introduce you to the key techniques of inducing and stabilizing this unique state of awareness, so that you can use it thoughtfully.

This workshop focuses on the basics of lucid dreaming and is suitable for those who have never had a lucid dream (but have dream recall) and those who have limited experience with lucid dreaming.

In this section, Robert will introduce and discuss the importance of lucid dreaming, as well as the idea of control within the dream state.

About the Guide:

Author Robert Waggoner is past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). For the past ten years, he has been the co-editor of the online magazine, The Lucid Dreaming Experience, the only ongoing publication devoted specifically to lucid dreaming. A lucid dreamer since 1975, he has logged more than 1,000 lucid dreams.

Lucid dreaming offers science a revolutionary psychological tool to experiment and investigate the deeper aspects of the dream state, consciousness and the mind. In 1975, Robert taught himself a simple technique to become consciously aware in dreams. Since that time, lucid dreaming has been proven by the pioneering research of Dr. Keith Hearne, University of Hull, and Dr. Stephen LaBerge at Stanford.

Robert's first book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, shows how lucid dreamers can explore the subconscious and its knowing. With fascinating lucid dream examples, thought-provoking questions and exciting techniques, it has been hailed "a classic" by experienced lucid dreamers. His latest book, Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple: Tips and Techniques for Insight, Creativity and Personal Growth, written in collaboration with Carolina McCready, was called the "perfect book for beginners" by

Robert frequently speaks on lucid dreaming at national and international dream conferences, workshops and college classrooms, including Sonoma State University, Iowa State University, The University of Washington, The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Evergreen State College, and internationally at Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University, in Jerusalem, Israel.

Robert has been interviewed by CNN, CBS News and ABC News (KABC - Los Angeles) about the practice of lucid dreaming. His comments have appeared in media as diverse as DETAILS, The Huffington Post, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Popular Science and Brides magazine. During 2009-2010, he had a regular Iowa Public Radio show, discussing dreams and lucid dreams.
