Lucid dreaming: it's when you suddenly realize that you are dreaming... and then sustain that wide-awake clarity while in a dream state. For millenia, it's been used by ordinary people and advanced meditators for practical insights, self-discovery, and delving into the architecture of reality itself. Here, the pioneer of scientific lucid-dream research offers two guided sessions, one to play in the daytime and one to play at night before sleep. These are the same conditoning programs used to help and train hundreds of "oneironauts" (volunteer lucid-dream subjects) at Stanford University and the Lucidity Institute.

An extremely relaxing meditation. As someone who has struggled with insomnia for years, this was a blessing. It didn't induce lucid dreams, but I might just have to use it more.

One thing you should know is that it's actually two versions of the same meditation, one that ends with you waking up and one that ends with you (hopefully) falling asleep. The waking up is first, and it's kinda weird to do everything twice. The meditations are each about 15 minutes long.
