Publisher's Summary

Dreams of Awakening is a thorough and exciting exploration of lucid dreaming theory and practice within both Western and Tibetan Buddhist contexts. It not only explores lucid dreaming practices, but also the innovative new techniques of mindfulness of dream and sleep, the holistic approach to lucidity training which the author co-created. The book is based on over 12 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 listener is given a solid grounding in:

  • The history and benefits of lucid dreaming
  • Cutting-edge research from dream and sleep scientists
  • Entering the path of learning to do the practices
  • Prophetic dreams, lucid living, out of body experiences and quantum dreaming

Although Dreams of Awakening presents many different angles on how to make the 30 years we spend asleep more worthwhile, the fundamental aim of the book is to teach people how to lucid dream their way to psychological and spiritual growth. This book is for all those who want to wake up, both in their dreams and waking lives.

Awesome Beginner Book

I really like this book. This book is ideal for anyone like me who is just starting practicing meditation and wants to learn a bit more about awareness, lucid dreams and astral projection. This is one of those books that it is worth it to listen to more than once as you will pay more attention to different details each time.

Fascinating AND entertaining!

I loved that it is read by the author. This is an interesting, funny and deeply fascinating book coupled with REAL intimate experiences shared. If you have an interest in dreams and spirituality without getting too technical then you’ll really like this book.

Brilliant topic, brilliant delivery.

Excellent book and presented in a very engaging way by Charlie. The way he presented it with the background understanding and then the practice was really useful and easy to understand.

It works!!

More than just lucid dreaming. Charlie tries to take you through the scientific background and the history of the topic while he does his sincerest to also impart the benefits of the practice with wisdom and spirituality. Once you attain lucid dreams more frequently, it's worth listening again (if not a few more times).

interesting concepts

Charlie's honesty shines throughout the book, his passion also. Although we think we know a lot about the human brain, here is yet a simple technique that is available to us all to fully explore and play, with none of the potentially harmful side effects of modern medicine.

I am dreaming blissfully.

I have been doing lucid dreaming for over 25 years and I never once knew that we can meditate which is like a fast track to meditation levels, or learn to meet our higher self Or my favorite is healing our body in lucid dreaming. I will never waste another lucid dream again this book was eye opening and I love the narrator as well. I highly recommend this book whether you're a novice or in pro her so much she had to be learned.

Interesting Concepts

I really enjoyed the book. I would have enjoyed it more with the stories of the dreams intermixed instead of all at the end in the appendix though.

pretty good book!

while i haven't (yet) had any lucid dreams that I think could be attributed to reading/listening to this book, I think if that, if I continue to practice the pieces of advice and exercises Mr. Morley advocates, it will happen.

A must-read for the dreamer

This is the perfect book to begin to develop a dream yoga practice which is a new realm for me. I've always been interested in dreams and write down my significant ones but this guide takes it to another level. I love how the information is presented in a balanced combination of science, Buddhist practice and interesting anecdotes. It's both fascinating and fun! It's read by the author who's excitement for the subject is so engaging. I experienced two lucid dreams within a week of listening and following the prompts. I would've preferred his dreams to be in the chapters instead of in an index at the end but still love the book.

Really good...

I've already had drastic extensions to the longevity of my short lived lucid dreams. I like the inclusion of a meditational and eastern tradition approach.

Essential Lucid Dreaming Book For Mě

I bought a hard copy of the book at first, but as I seem to be primarily auditive, the audio version of the book seems to be more working with me.

TAking into account that I went through a couple of Charlie's workshops on lucid dreaming I am used to his voice which works very effectively with me while listening to the audiobook and I take as a bitů advantage for me he read the book for the record himself.

Great insight into lucid dreaming.

Truly wonderful work on the topic with excellent instructing. I started having lucid dreams on the second day after starting the practice. This is especially remarkable seeing as I couldn't even remember dreaming for months before reading and embracing the Teachings presented here.

Lucid dreaming beginner

I loved listening to this book and although I haven't had a lucid dream myself yet I have been really enjoying learning about it for the first time. Inbetween detailed explanations, the book shared interesting experiences which felt like short stories and I feel like I have a good grasp, that was clearly explained, about how one day I might be able to be a fellow lucid dreamer. A great starting book to get you into finding out more about lucid dreaming.

it's good book for lucid dream starters

This book gives you a pretty good insight to the fundamentals of lucid dreaming. The reading was a bit monotonous for me.

Great book and enjoyed British narration.

Loved listening to this, brought back memories of my teenage years lucid dreaming that I learnt from the newsgroups in early days of the internet. This was much more comprehensive and explained experiences I had with falling into black voids etc. I loved how it had both western and eastern references like Dream Yoga.

My reality check was always my wrist watch, worked every time even though I didn't wear a watch in real life. Times doesn't exist in the dream world, so if you look at your watch and then look away it will tell you different time or you will be unable to read the time.

Thanks

Inspired me to go deeper into my dream-life and also my spiritual life, which was a surprise. I became aware that dreams can be a tool for deeper personal development.
