Welcome to the 3rd of my NEW LOOK blog/newsletter offerings packed full of cool video links and lucid news!

I've just got back from a great 3 week tour of SOUTH AFRICA & ZIMBABWE running retreats and workshops. Quite tiring but lots of fun! Wanna see some pics from tour?  CLICK HERE!

After a few people had a bit of a lack of confidence in their ability to dream lucidly my musings this month are on... 

SELF DOUBT

Some people might be blocking their potential to have lucid dreams through the self-doubt that makes us think that they can’t have lucid dreams, or that lucid dreams are only for special people.

This is nonsense! Lucid dreaming is for everybody who dreams. If you sleep you dream, and if you dream you can lucid dream – whether you sleep in the park or the palace, lucid dreaming is available to you.

In fact every person reading this has probably had multiple lucid dreams already, even if they don’t remember them. This is because children and adolescents naturally lucid dream – not every night and not every child, but the majority of children experience numerous lucid dreams as part of their psychological development.

The fact that children and adolescents have spontaneous lucid dreams tells us two important things: firstly that lucid dreaming is a natural, unprompted arising of the human mind (rather than an alien imposition forced upon it), and secondly that you don’t need to learn how to lucid dream, you just need to remember how.

So in conclusion, don’t sweat it, your lucid dreams are waiting for you once you drop the doubt and replace it with enthusiastic confidence!



Right, musings over! A full schedule of my WORKSHOPS & RETREATS can be found at the bottom of this e mail but for now please enjoy all the other cool BOOKS, VIDEOS and QUOTES that I have put together for you this month.


With love and lucidity,

 New lucid dream research

This month there have been over a douzen articles published on lucid dreaming all based around a breakthrough study on problem solving as reviewed below on The British Psychological Society website.

There is also a nice piece featuring yours truly from Business Insider in which i discuss lucid dreaming more generally.

 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!
