Lucid Dreams & Healing - How Lucid Dreaming Allows for Healing and Wholeness

Robert Waggoner

Wednesday, February 8th, 6-7:30 PM (PST)

Robert Waggoner

The scientific evidence for lucid dreaming appeared prominently in 1980, through the work of Keith Hearne in England and Stephen LaBerge at Stanford. Being consciously aware of dreaming while in the dream, however, has a vast tradition in Buddhist dream yoga, Sufism and native shamanic traditions for millennia. There, lucid dreaming serves as a tool for deep exploration into the nature of mind and reality.

Our presenter, Robert Waggoner, taught himself a simple technique in 1975 to become lucidly aware and has had more than 1,000 lucid dreams. His two books explore the amazing potential of this profound state and what it reveals. Waggoner sees lucid dreaming as an 'open platform' that allows for accessing inner creativity, exploring the deeper nature of self, engaging spiritual concepts and healing the emotional and physical body.

In this special presentation, Waggoner will focus on using lucid dreams for healing. Already some psychotherapists use lucid dreaming as an accepted means to resolve recurring nightmares in clients with post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. However, Waggoner shows that lucid dreaming has far greater potential for physical healing and resolving emotional trauma. He will provide compelling examples of healing lucid dreams, and will explain how these show underlying mechanisms that anyone can use for healing.

  • The nature of nature: how it is designed to heal the body, mind, spirit.
  • The new science: nature is in conscious relationship with itself and us.
  • The science and spirit of nature: its medicine and magic.

  • Become the medicine the world needs: discover for yourself how nature heals and inspires you.
