In "Dreaming While Awake," Mindell shows how to become aware of these "flirts" from the dreamworld and how to interpet their message. The goal, he says, is to be wide awake and lucid 24 hours a day in the midst of this unending dreamfield of information. Practicing 24-hour lucid dreaming:
- Helps you solve personal, and emotional problems - Serves as a preventive medicine for relationships and health, helping you catch the earliest warning signs before they turn into problems - Helps resolve conflicts in relationships, families, large groups, corporations, even politics
Dreaming is the mystical source of reality, says Mindell. "My goal is to make the Dreaming roots of reality so accessible, so visceral, that your conscious mind will give you back your right to dream." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Eminently readable and enthusiastically recommended.
Author Arnold Mindell explains how playing with nonconsensus and consensus reality can help one attain a sense of lucid living... of recognizing the "Big You."
Individuals interested in learning to understand and use their Dreaming will find the help they seek in Dreaming While Awake.
