Publisher's Summary

Some of the greatest of life’s adventures can happen while you’re sound asleep. That’s the promise of lucid dreaming, which is the ability to alter your own dream reality any way you like simply by being aware of the fact that you’re dreaming while you’re in the midst of a dream. There is a range of techniques anyone can learn to become a lucid dreamer - and this audiobook provides all the instruction you need to get started. But B. Alan Wallace also shows how to take the experience of lucid dreaming beyond entertainment to use it to heighten creativity, to solve problems, and to increase self-knowledge. He then goes a step further: moving on to the methods of Tibetan Buddhist dream yoga for using your lucid dreams to attain the profoundest kind of insight.

Very useful even if it just to get a better sleep

This book is a description of the process to meditation and how to apply it to dreaming. I found the instructions clear the author gets to the point very quickly. Even if you are not going to go through the whole program, I found much of the advice interesting and applicable better sleep in general.

This book will potentially help anyone who has trouble falling off to sleep or trouble with stress and sleep. I would definitely give it a try.

Great techniques and background

This book had some great ideas that I was able to apply on my first nights sleep after listening to a few chapters. the end of the book brings into light some philosophical considerations and helped me think through some ideas I have about the metaphysical nature of some dreams. I also recommend the app Awoken which asks you throughout the day "Are you dreaming." It's a great reminder. I usually try to use the technique of asking myself this when I see my hands but after reading this book have been trying to also ask when I walk through a door.
