What made the experience of listening to Lucid Dreaming, Conscious Sleeping the most enjoyable?

This is an extremely well planned Cd where Charlie has used a number of different techniques to help you understand, integrate and explore Lucid Dreaming

I have yet to meet Charlie but I have meet some of the people he identifies as his teachers Without doubt as well as Charlie's own experience he had sort out excellent teachers that make this Cd and the book exception in both detail and accessibility

I have only had the Cd for two weeks so - the benefits to so far have been around being much more aware of my sleeping patterns and using the final track ( which is a hypnotic relaxation and guide ) remembering more of my dreams

I recommend this to you all

If you do for the download on Audible, which rarely carries over the track listing see below

What about Charlie Morley’s performance did you like?

  • Getting Unstuck

  • Breaking Your Habitual Patterns and Encountering Naked Reality

On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

For Buddhists or non buddhist Pema teaches a way through your habits and habitual reponses to a better life today - and for buddhist refresh inspiration for your practise on the path to enlightenment
Very clear - a call to action
