I want to apologise...

I realise that I haven't really been offering you guys anything of VALUE in these newsletters other than loads of info about my workshop dates. 

As
most of you have done one of my workshops already it didn't really give you any INCENTIVE to even open the e mail either! 

This was a real INSIGHT for me, so from now on...

My newsletters are going to be DIFFERENT!  :-)

They'll still contain all the workshop dates (including the new SOUTH AFRICAN TOUR dates)  but that will be secondary to:
 

  •  My FAVORITE videos of the month (particularly interesting online talks which I recommend watching)

  • Links to the LATEST articles and research about lucid dreaming. 

  •  Recommended reading (books that I've personally loved)

  • "Charlie says" quotes from Dreams of Awakening and  my NEW book Lucid Dreaming: A Beginners Guide

  • And even the odd competition too!


The aim is to give you guys a newsletter that you will WANT to open and NOT just try and sell you my workshops!

I hope you enjoy this new approach...

With love and lucidity,
Charlie

 New lucid dream research

The esteemed UK newspaper The Guardian runs two articles on lucid dreaming in as many months! This stuff is really going mainstream this year!

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/may/11/lucid-dreaming-electric-scalp-stimulation-study

 This month I've been reading...

Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked (Very good book. An exploration of the divine feminine by Meggan Watterson)

Night School: Wake up to the power of sleep (Very comprehensive new book about sleep by Richard Wiseman)

Jesus and the Lost Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians (More divine feminine goodness from Tim Freke)

Dreams of Awakening: Lucid Dreaming and Mindfulness of Dream and Sleep (sorry couldn't resist it!)

Charlie says...

"To lucid dream is to peep behind the magician’s curtain. Through lucid dreaming we learn how to wake up and smile at the magic." - Dreams of Awakening 

"Lucid dreaming is unrestricted by censorship or state control, limited only by the relationship with our own inner state. A true taste of freedom." - Dreams of Awakening

"The word Buddha means one who has woken up. Woken up from what? From the illusion of separateness, just as we do in a lucid dream." - Dreams of Awakening

 Videos of Charlie

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!
