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.

What did you like best about Induce Lucid Dreaming? What did you like least?

I like the exercise and his validity as a researcher. There is no visible separation between the two sections, one for day and one for night, and they are identical except for the last minute or so, so the second section is virtually worthless. I think this is just plain sloppy on Audible's part.

What was most disappointing about Stephen LaBerge’s story?

That the two parts are not different.
