“David Jay Brown’s book is a brilliant synthesis of current research, ancient and indigenous wisdom, and extensive personal experience. Based on a wealth of hard data, historical research, and dream diaries, Brown deftly ties together not only lucid dreams but also similar events from other altered states. While the book centers on lucid dreams, it incorporates parallel experiences in psychedelic use and shamanism, giving us, perhaps, the first sophisticated synthesis for exploring difficult to access realms of consciousness. Filled with practical and doable suggestions on how to enhance lucid dreaming and how to maximize its healing effects, Dreaming Wide Awake is a splendid, well-written, revelatory, yet pragmatic look at the dreaming mind.” (James Fadiman Ph.D., microdose researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide: Safe)
“Encyclopedic yet personal, rigorous yet highly accessible, Brown’s book is enormously successful. The author covers every conceivable theoretical and practical aspect of lucid dreaming: from neuroscience to shamanism, anthropology to the occult, ethnobotany to telepathy, the electronic to the pharmacologic. In so doing, he brings clarity and relevance to this mysterious and potentially highly influential consciousness-altering tool.” (Rick Strassman, M.D., clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico Sch)
“Dreaming Wide Awake takes you on a psychedelic romp through the beauty, mystery, and healing potential of the ‘conscious’ unconscious. Well researched and written, it has something for every inner explorer.” (Robert Waggoner, author of Lucid Dreaming Gateway to the Inner Self and coauthor of Lucid Dreaming,)
“For millennia, many tribal shamans have used lucid dreaming and psychedelic plants to obtain information that they have used in helping and healing members of their community. In this groundbreaking book, David Jay Brown has brought together findings from contemporary science to demonstrate the similarity between these two types of altered consciousness and how the insights they provide can help alleviate nightmares, restore health, hasten recovery from injuries, and even yield creative insights. Dreaming Wide Awake may evoke a new field of research, both experimental and applied, that will enhance human potentials in ways that have been too long neglected.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., coauthor of Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them)
“With his customary precision and style, David Jay Brown illuminates the dreamtime . . . and he tells you how you can work and play in that dream space. An important book for true dreamers.” (R. U. Sirius, musician, digital culture iconoclast, and author of Transcendence: The Disinformation)
“Kapow. Brown’s Dreaming Wide Awake connects the multidimensional dots that are strewn throughout the tiered cosmos. He goes far and deep into the mysteries of the dreaming mind and, even more impressively, does this with his feet planted on the ground and armed with a skeptical but compassionate outlook.” (Ryan Hurd, coeditor of Lucid Dreaming: New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep and author of Drea)
“A fascinating read. With curiosity and heart, David Jay Brown invites the reader to explore a unique fusion of shamanism, psychedelics, and lucid dreaming. Watch the doors between the worlds swing open!” (Clare Johnson, Ph.D., author of Breathing in Colour and Dreamrunner)

Top Customer Reviews
me) and supremely gifted psychonaut-author. This book thoroughly reviews the history, science, and culture of lucid dreaming w/ cutting-edge updates on the subject including a bridge between lucid dreams and psychedelics, w/ an inspiring look at the future of the subject augmented by new technologies. A new Kickstarter product called the Lucid Dreamer will do exactly what Brown describes in this book economizing lucid dreaming trans-cranial stimulation technology for personal and portable use. Looking forward to reading Brown's "New Science of Psychedelics" currently on its way. I'm hopeful about the "neurological (r)evolution" knowing a psychonaut of the caliber of (and also a friend of the late) Robert Anton Wilson, et al., is turning out new books to initiate millenials into the Great Dream...
