In this remarkable book, Robert Waggoner has brought lucid dreaming to a level that is simultaneously higher and deeper than any previous explorer has taken the topic. Both autobiographical and historical, theoretical and practical, psychodynamic and transpersonal, as well as adventurous and cautionary, Lucid Dreaming offers its readers instructions and insights that they will find nowhere else in the literature. They will learn how they can become awake and aware while asleep, and how this talent can change their lives. --Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, San Francisco, Coauthor of Extraordinary Dreams and How To Work With Them
Lucid Dreaming IS a gateway to the Inner Self. Robert Waggoner s unique storytelling style is compelling reading an impressive exploration of the subject. The work is scholarly, fascinating, and, most of all, practical. --Christine Lemley, Executive Producer, DREAMTIME Series, WFYI/PBS-TV Indianapolis
Robert Waggoner admirably fulfills his aim of bringing lucidity to lucid dreaming. His book is distinguished by its wealth of first-hand experience, and his clear recognition that, instead of seeking to control and manipulate our dreams, we should use the gift of lucidity to navigate a deeper reality and grow into connection with a deeper and wiser self. He offers practical techniques and fascinating travelers tales to encourage us to experiment with interactive and precognitive dreaming and to explore the process of reality creation inside the dream matrix. This is an invitation to high adventure. --Robert Moss, Author of Conscious Dreaming and The Three ONLY Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination

I finally came across Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self. I have not before, nor since found such a great source that actually managed to give me answers to many of the questions that I had. There are, of course, some questions that a book cannot answer and I will need to discover those answers on my own but this book really delves in-depth on the subject of lucid dreaming and the multiple layers and experiences one can have when in this state. My eyes were opened to a level that they had never been opened before as to what is possible.
I also practice meditation, I have for a few years. Combining the two techniques is highly beneficial and really allows one to explore the depths of the sub-conscious that we are normally "locked" away from (I use that loosely, the reality is, we lock ourselves away from our true selves). The author is not only an experienced lucid dreamer, he has conducted numerous experiments with lucid dreaming to really test the depths of his own ability as well as the ability of others to maximize this phenomenon. He does an excellent job chronicling these dreams throughout the book with explanations as well as examples of others who have had similar experiences.
Lucid dreaming, once considered a "fringe science" has been accepted as a scientific reality but the depths have yet to be fully probed. If you have any interest in lucid dreaming, whether you have experienced it yourself, are curious about it, or just want to, this book is a must-have. I was well worth every penny I paid.
Notice, this is not a book on how to induce lucid dreaming. You will be disappointed if you hope to find such techniques here. The author has workshops on the how-tos.
For example, some new to lucid dreaming find it difficult to go anywhere in their dream because they can't make their legs work. They find out, if they do, that legs work in the physical world but not in a dream. If you want to go somewhere in a dream, all you need to do is to want it, to wish it, or to will it. Actually, just seeing and thinking about the place you want to be is good enough.
There is a lot in this book about meeting others and conversing with them in dreams. Now, there is a thought.
