Stephen LaBerge, PhD, laid the groundwork for his pioneering breakthroughs in lucid dreaming research two decades ago while obtaining his PhDin psychophysiology at Stanford University. Since then he has been continuing work at Stanford studying lucid dreaming and psychophysiological correlates of states of consciousness. In 1988, acting on his conviction that lucid dreaming offers many benefits to humanity, Dr. LaBerge founded the Lucidity Institute, the mission of which is to advance research on the nature and potentials of consciousness and to apply the results of this research to the enhancement of human health and well-being.
"Dream Yogais a book that makes big promises: According to author Andrew Holecek, if we become sufficiently skilled at lucid dreaming (being aware that we are dreaming), we will eventually find our lucidity muscles at work while we are awake...While it will require time and patience to test the efficacy of these practices in bringing about The Great Awakening, the earnestness with which Holecek writes about their benefits, as well as the detail with which he describes them, suggests that it may be worth the effort." --Spirituality & Health"In this text, Holecek offers a practical guide for meditators to access and use lucid dreaming--waking up and becoming fully conscious in your dreams--in order to wake up more fully in life, written for both those experienced with this practice or attempting it for the first time. With explorations on modern scientific principles, practices of Tibetan dream and sleep yoga, enhancing dream recall, and focusing and amplifying awareness while dreaming, Holecek also provides essential Buddhist teachings and tools for navigating realms of 'nocturnal meditation." --Lion's Roar"Don't miss your opportunity to realize some of the very deepest and highest of all human potentials, from a real master of these realms!" --Ken Wilber, author of The Fourth Turning"At once profound and pragmatic, traditional and contemporary, a fine contribution to the growing literature on ways of exploring the nature of the mind and its role in nature by way of awakening to our dreams." --B. Alan Wallace, author of Dreaming Yourself Awake"Between these words one can sense a deep enthusiasm that comes from personal experience with the practice. This informative book will be very beneficial for dedicated dream yoga practitioners." --Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep
