New Book: Lucid Dreaming Plain & Simple Called "the perfect book for beginners" by easy-lucid-dreaming.com  Order now!

In 1975, the author 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.

Lucid dreaming offers science a revolutionary psychological tool to experiment and investigate the deeper aspects of the dream state, consciousness and the mind. This book shows how lucid dreamers can explore the subconscious and its knowing. With fascinating lucid dream examples, thought-provoking questions and exciting techniques, this book has been hailed "a classic" by experienced lucid dreamers.
