Charlie says...

"Often people ask me 'Will lucid dreaming make me tired?'

No, it won’t – in fact most people wake up feeling much more refreshed from lucid dreams than from everyday, non-lucid ones. Lucid dreaming occurs almost exclusively within REM dreaming sleep, which is not actually a restful sleep state. In fact, the original name for REM sleep was ‘paradoxical sleep’ – the paradox being that the brain is often more active during dreaming than it is while we’re awake.

Sleep is never wasted time because every stage of sleep has a purpose. The non-REM and deep sleep stages which make up the majority of our sleep are needed primarily to ‘clean the brain and flush out toxins’,8 whereas the REM dreaming stages are needed to reconsolidate our memory and integrate our psychological processes.

Non-lucid dreaming does this naturally, of course, but once we become lucid within our dreams the brain has sometimes been observed to start exhibiting certain high-frequency gamma brain waves, which have been linked to high-level meditation,9 hypnosis and psychological growth. This may mean that, once lucid, the REM dreaming stage becomes even more beneficial than usual. Also, for most people, lucid dreaming holds such a buzz of excitement that the day after a lucid dream will often be lit up with a sense of joy and achievement."

Videos

This is  a great 45 minute documentary about one of my lucid dreaming retreats in South Africa last year.
Want to know what actually happens at my workshops? This video explains it all!
One of the most intense and yet relaxed interviews I've ever done with the wonderful Renate McNay
The very popular Lilou Mace and myself in conversation about lucid dreaming and my book.
10 years in the hip hop music world exposed me to the spiritual potentials of dance, music and hip hop culture.
A well made chat show type format exploring lucid dreaming (with me), Out of Body Exploration with Todd Acamesis and conscious events with Davyd Farrell.

Lucid dream training is just like physical training and although working out on our own is great sometimes, working with a “personal trainer” is often what we need to break through blocks, rethink our dream-time schedule and enthuse our practice.

 

That's what these 1on1  SKYPE TUTORIALS are all about!
