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.

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.

New perspective for me. I love it.

This was just what I needed to broaden my spiritual work even more. Already got to meet my higher self and had many, many dreams during the book. Thank you Charlie.

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.

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

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.

Wow wow wow

I had my first lucid dream after reading this book, It was the night I was reading the last few words of it when it happened, it’s so unreal and now I actually look forward to sleep and well as my waking hours. I read lucid dreams made easy first follow by this book but now it’s time to read dreaming thorough the darkness. The practical application of these books is off the charts and to be able to share it and pass it on your children words can not describe......... 🧘‍♂️ 😴 🛌 ❤️🌎

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.

This book helped me lucid dream and open my eyes to reality.

I listened to this book a lot. It inspired me and showed me that lucid dreaming is possible. It opened my eyes to reality, and I had a lucid view of things. My future is up to me. In fact, I had my first lucid dream (hopefully there will be many more to come) while listening to the book. I am just a kid, but “Dreams of Awakening” will leave its mark on me throughout my life. Thank you for writing this book, Charlie Morley. And thank you for following your dreams. (;
