Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self. While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to act and interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer.

Informative and thought provoking, this book has literally blown my mind! I feel as though I’ve learnt a lot from this book and will be recommending it to many people.

A word of warning though, this book is almost certain to make you question the status quo. I for one have begun to rethink the labels that I cling to. It’s really a must read!!!

I listened to this book after it was recommended by a friend of mine. It talks about living a simple and effective life and is the perfect antidote to our busy and hectic lifestyles. This is a classic.
