An oneironaut is someone who has learned to travel consciously in the dream world. A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming teaches the reader to reconnect with dreams–to have lucid dreams (to know you are dreaming while you are dreaming!), and what to do once you are awake in the dream world. It is filled with tips and stories of experiences in this realm, and scientific proof that lucid dreaming can really occur–it is not fantasy. Clever illustrations by Mahendra Singh fill out this creative guide.— Pinna's Staff Picks
Wake up and dream.
Imagine experiencing all the things that happen in dreams, but with one extraordinary difference: You are “lucid”––consciously, joyously in control. Not just an adventure (yes, you can fly), a lucid dream is a time ripe for creative thinking, healing, inspiration, and self-knowledge.
This lively dream guide shows step-by-step how to become lucid, and then what to do once awake in the dream world. Here’s how to reconnect with dreams, and the importance of keeping a journal and timing REM cycles. How to use simple reality checks to differentiate between waking and sleeping states. How to incubate a dream to solve a problem.
With every dream we are washing up on the shores of our own inner landscape. Now, learn to explore this strange and thrilling world.
