9780415114516: Lucid Dreaming: The Paradox of Consciousness During Sleep

Lucid dreams are dreams in which a person becomes aware that they are dreaming. They are different from ordinary dreams, not just because of the dreamer's awareness that they are dreaming, but because lucid dreams are often strikingly realistic and may be emotionally charged to the point of elation.
Celia Green and Charles McCreery have written a unique introduction to lucid dreams that will appeal to the specialist and general reader alike. The authors explore the experience of lucid dreaming, relate it to other experiences such as out-of-the-body experiences (to which they see it as closely related) and apparitions, and look at how lucid dreams can be induced and controlled. They explore their use for therapeutic purposes such as counteracting nightmares. Their study is illustrated throughout with many case histories.

`The book is highly recommended as an interesting read, a useful source book, and as a sensitive yet scientifically sound approach to these fringe phenomena.' - The Irish Psychologist

`...this is an interesting and valuable book. One can only hope researchers will take up these ideas in the lab, to help uncover the `valuable insights into the neurophysiology of normal cognitive functioning' that Green and McCreery, in concluding, promise us.' - The Skeptic
