This book goes far beyond the confines of pop dream psychology, establishing a scientifically researched framework for using lucid dreaming--that is, consciously influencing the outcome of your dreams. Based on Dr. Stephen LaBerge's extensive laboratory 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 psycholgist Paul Tholey, this practical workbook will show you how to use your dreams to: Solve problems; Gain greater confidence; improve creativity, and more.

Book Description: "Dreaming" is the basis for human consciousness; we do it all day, every day. Subtle signs or events of particular meaning that we tend to miss, ignore, or misinterpet during waking hours become the seeds of our night dreams. These dreams, then, are often elaborations of subtle signs that we regulate to the fringes of our consciousness. How can we learn to control this cycle, and what can we learn from this process about ourselves?
Dr.Arnold Mindell asserts that in order ot utilize the power of dreaming we must "catch the seeds of dreaming" while awake; we must "become aware of every moment," noticing subtle feelings before they unfold and become differentiated into the ideas and emotions that occur in night dreams, often manifesting later as symptoms of mental illness. Mindell gives dreaming new importance in the context of mystical traditions, quantum physics, and western psychology, and provides powerful dreaming applications for body work, chronic symptom work, and relationship/group therapies. Mindell tells how to use dreaming as a practical application for healing, stress-reduction, and health using simple exercises with easy steps
