Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge, Ph. D. & Howard Rheingold – Remarks

Posted by Raul Barral Tamayo en Martes, 25 de diciembre, 2018


Copyright © 1990 by Stephen LaBerge, Ph. D. and Howard Rheingold

Lucid dreaming (conscious awareness during the dream sstate) is an exhilarating experience. Armed with the knowledge that the world you are experiencing is one of your own creation, you can conciously influence the outcome of your dremas. You can create and transform objects, people, situations, worlds, and even yourself. In short, by the standards of the familiar world of physical and social reality, you can do the impossible.

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming is based on Dr. Stephen LaBerge’s extensive laboraty 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. The result is a work that goes far beyond the confines of pop dream psychology, establishing a scientifically researched framework for using lucid dreaming to improve the quality of life.

Just as importantly, the experiences of thousands of real-life dreamers have shown that you can use lucid dreaming to solve problems, gain greater confidence, improve creativity, face and overcome fears and inhibitions, and create a new sense of empowerment and liberation in your life.

A self-teaching curriculum, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming presents a tool kit of dozens of scientifically sound, easy-to-use techniques and exercises. Specifically, you will learn techniques for inducing, prolonging, and making use of lucid dreams; for increasing your dream recall; for building a catalog of dreamsigns (signposts that tell you when you are dreaming); and for entering the dream state lucidly (directly from the waking state). You will also learn ways to remain in a lucid dream, to awaken when you wish, and to manipulate dream work to achieve specific goals.

Inspired and effective, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming can make your nightly dream journeys more enjoyable, increase your understanding of yourself, and make you realize that the possibilities of expanded consciousness are far greater than you might think.

Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. is a Research Associate in the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Psychology at Stanford University.

Howard Rheingold is the author of Excursions to the Far Side of the Mind and the coauthor of Higher Creativity and The Cognitive Connection.

Last words by George Carlin – Brief Remarks

Posted by Raul Barral Tamayo en Jueves, 15 de enero, 2015


As one of America’s preeminent comedic voices, George Carlin saw it all throughout his extraordinary fifty-year career and made fun of most of it. Last Words is the story of the man behind some of the most seminal comedy of the last half century, blending his signature acerbic humor with never-before-told stories from his own life.

Carlin’s early conflicts, his long struggle with substance abuse, his turbulent relationships with his family, and his triumphs over catastrophic setbacks all fueled the unique comedic worldview he brought to the stage. From the heights of stardom to the low points few knew about, Last Words is told with the same razor-sharp honesty that made Carlin one of the best-loved comedians in American history.

George Denis Patrick Carlin appeared no more than 130 Tonight shows, starred in an unprecedented fourteen HBO Specials, hosted the first Saturday Night Live, and penned three New York Times bestselling books. A few days before his death, Carlin was named the eleventh recipient of The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Tony Hendra was recently describe by The Independent of London as “one of the most brilliant comic talents of the post-war period”. He began his comic career with Graham Chapman of Monty Python, appeared nine times on The Ed Sullivan Show, was an original editor of National Lampoon, and starred in This is Spinal Tap.

Lucid Dreaming by Robert Waggoner – Brief Remarks

Posted by Raul Barral Tamayo en Jueves, 28 de agosto, 2014


Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of a talented lucid dreamer who consciously sought out the principles of the dreaming realm, while lucidly aware.

While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, lucid dreamer Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. Using a counter-intuitive technique to ignore the dream figures and objects, and address questions and requests to the unknown awareness behind the dream, he began to get deeply creative responses.

At first this seemed shocking, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Inner Self, Subliminal Self, the Center, the Hidden Observer in vague and theoretical ways. Waggoner came to realize, however, that lucid dreaming offered a means to interact with that inner observer directly.

After almost a thousand lucid dreams, he concluded that while aware in the dream state, we have both a psychological tool and a platform from which to begin to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man’s psyche as well. In the book, Waggoner proposes five stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to new levels of exploration.

Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the nature of reality.

Robert Waggoner is President-elect of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) and a graduate of Drake University with a degree in psychology. Over the past thirty years, he has logged more than a thousand lucid dreams. He is an international speaker and coeditor of the quartely publication, The Lucid Dream Exchange.
