Dreams of Awakening (available in multiple languages) is an exciting exploration of lucid dreaming theory and practice within both Western and Tibetan Buddhist contexts.
It is based on over 13 years of personal practice and the hundreds of lucid dreaming workshops which Charlie has taught around the world in venues as diverse as Buddhist temples and dance-music festivals.
Using a three-part structure of Ground, Path and Germination, the reader is given a solid grounding in:
-the history and benefits of lucid dreaming and Tibetan dream yoga
-cutting edge scientific research on how we sleep and dream
-lucid dreaming techniques and practicesthe investigation of prophetic dreams, lucid living, out of body experiences and quantum dreaming
-Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep,the innovative new approach to lucidity training which the author co-created.
The fundamental aims of Dreams of Awakening are to make the 30 years we spend asleep more meaningful and to teach people how to lucid dream their way to psychological and spiritual growth – awakening them to their true potential.
I have run joint retreats with Charlie and I consider him to be the most experienced and authentic practitioner of lucid dreaming teaching in Europe. He has been training since his teens and this book offers a training programme based on this unique practical experience.
I have been involved in the Toltec culture of dreaming for many years and Charlie´s book is one of the best I have ever read about dreams. We are entering a new period of time in which the ancient lineages of dreamers were predicted to be rediscovered, and Charlie Morley is giving a treasure for these times, a modern view on the ancient Tibetan practices of dreaming.
Joyfully exploring consciousness, lucid dreaming and Buddhism, Charlie Morley gently stretches the reader’s mind to accept dream yoga’s premise of real awakening. I recommend this for everyone on the lucid dreaming path.
