On Lucid Dreaming....

The unusual and powerful event of a lucid dream was brought much closer to me today.  I went to hear author Robert Waggoner discuss this topic, lucid dreaming, and it was absolutely amazing how much practical and inspiring information he provided us all.  Mr. Waggoner is helping us celebrate “Dreamy March”, a month chocked full of fun and fascinating events on the topic of dreams.  His book “Lucid Dreaming: A gateway to the inner self” continues to grow in popularity and with good reason, it is a must read if you are interested in the topic and especially if you want to experience a lucid dream regularly.  In the Friday night presentation, which Rhine members can access on our webpage, and in his Saturday workshop, he discussed the history and growth of the study of lucid dreams.  He noted significant scientific studies, and shared many accounts from lucid dreamers that gave us a good feel for the phenomenon, and really enticed us to have a lucid dream of our own.  That’s a good thing because he discussed techniques to encourage lucid dreaming, and ways to work within the lucid state.  Consciously examining the dreamscape is very different from passively recalling a dream the next day, so the dynamics of exploration are very important.   He did a thorough job of explaining what experienced lucid dreamers have discovered about the exploration process, and how a lucid dreamer can apply this knowledge to answer questions that they bring to the dream state.  The knowledge he brought us was entertaining and very useful. 

There are more great presentations to come this month, so check out our events page and make plans to attend.  Many of these events are free and all of them are fascinating.  If you are a human being, you are a dreamer, so all these events pertain to you.  Do yourself a favor and check them out.
