I would HIGHLY recommend listening to Wallace's Lucid Dreaming and Dream Yoga talk available at the Upaya Zen Center's dharma podcasts online (just search for dharma podcast and lucid dreaming). It is a 13 episode lecture on lucid dreaming, dream yoga, and Buddhist philosophy. He brings to light many of the "dream signs" yogis use during the daytime practices, such as recognizing the arising of dukkha and so forth. Great to read and listen as part of a larger study. Good luck.
No problem, according to Wallace. He believes that we all can dream lucidly and provides instructions in relaxation and dream journaling that will help toward that goal. I came to this book more out of curiosity about sleep and dreams in general, rather than specifically to learn how to lucid dream, so I am perhaps not the target reader, and I remain somewhat skeptical. Nevertheless, I found the book to be intelligently written, and the uncomplicated techniques appear to be well designed to achieve the goal of lucidity in dreams, if that's your aim.
To my thinking, the real feat would be to "wake up" from the dream of consensus reality. The second part of the book, on Dream Yoga, addresses this, but not as extensively as I had hoped.Read more ›
