Gillian Kemp. At first it was almost knocked over, but then, with difficulty, it shook the droplets from its wings and rose into the air. It flew, with wings beating at top speed, back towards the sleeper's mouth.
But the other man now picked up a large leaf, and held it in front of his companion's face, to see what the little creature would do. The butterfly dashed itself against this obstruction again and again, as if in panic: The butterfly's tormentor dropped the leaf, and the creature darted, quick as a flash, into the open mouth.
No sooner was it inside than the sleeper shuddered and sat up, wide awake. He told his friend: I dreamt that I was living in a pleasant and secure castle, but became restless and decided to explore the outside world.
I drank deep, from a cup of ambrosia as much as I wanted. I met and danced with a woman of matchless beauty, and I disported myself in endless summer. I played and feasted with many good companions, people of all kinds and conditions, natures, ages and complexions.
There were some sorrows but these only served to emphasize the pleasures of this existence. Suddenly and without warning, there was a catastrophe: I was drenched and I very nearly drowned. I found myself hurtling back towards my castle, as if on wings; but when I reached the entrance gate I could not get in.
A huge green door had been put up by a giant evil spirit. I threw myself against it again and again, but it did not yield. No sooner had I spoken it than the great green portal fell away, like a leaf in the wind, and I was able to enter my home again and to live thenceforth in safety.
But I was so frightened I woke up. Now it is said that you, as you may have guessed, are the butterfly. The island is this world. The things which you like -- and dislike -- are therefore seldom what you think they are.
Even when your time arrives to go or when you think about it you only find distortions of the facts, which is why this question cannot ordinarily be understood. But beyond "the butterfly" is "the sleeping man.
Given the right opportunity, "the butterfly" can learn about these things. About where it comes form, about the nature of the "sleeping man.
There is more to life than people are ordinarily aware of. This is an inspiration to seek a guide who knows the way. Mar 25, Christopher rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent beginner's guide for the curious.
I read this in the 's when I was fresh out of high school and enjoying exploration of the world of dreaming. I also have a fond recollection of the book as it represents a time in my life when I slept long and deeply and had time to journal about such things as one's dreams.

When I have kids, I'll realize that i have as much to learn from them maybe more than they do from me. If you believe in Heaven then you must believe in other realms of existence. If you believe humans will have access to heaven then you must believe we have access to other realms of existence. Lucid Dreaming and Out of Body Experiences are the gateway.

I consider it a combination of a how to and a why to. The major skills I think someone could takeaway from this are: How to recall your dreams 3. How to lucid dream 4.

How to potentially resolve problems in your dreams In terms of 'why to's of this book I think Laberge makes some interesting arguments about the benefit of lucid dreaming and I think it's definitely worth trying. I mean otherwise you're just wasting all of that time sleeping, right?
Even if the only thing you get out of this book are ways to relax or recall your dreams I think this is worth reading and definitely a topic you don't come across every day. View 2 comments. Jun 13, ZeN rated it really liked it. Excellent guide for beginners to Lucid Dreaming. I held back a star since it didn't fit my needs as much seeing as how it's heavy with anecdotes and I was searching for more of the technical. Since its a good guide for starters, it has reviews and notes to remember the info.
I knew most of it already so the reviews seemed redundant. Taking up space with already stated information. Still it's a great book with a good Excellent guide for beginners to Lucid Dreaming. Still it's a great book with a good overview of what LDing is about.
Apr 21, Ethan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Anyone interested in or even vaguely curious about Lucid Dreaming should begin with this book. Stephen LaBerge is one of the world's leading authorities on Lucid Dreaming and draws upon decades of research conducted at the sleep laboratory at Stanford to lay the groundwork for anyone who would like to learn how to consistently have lucid dreams.
The book is very thorough and comes in at over pages, but the potential benefits are well worth the time. Dec 31, Gabriel J. Clark rated it it was amazing. This is apparently one of the first western books widely available to the public which provides detailed instructions on how to lucid dream. It was published in , nearly 30 years ago. This is quite old in the world of scientific research, but this book is still very relevant.
Feb 25, Dean Tsang rated it it was amazing Shelves: Stephen LaBerge introduces and explains lucid dreaming nicely, taking a simplistic approach in explaining the techniques and benefits of conscious sleep. This book explained everything I could have asked for, and have no qualms with it.
I definitely recommend this for anyone who has thought of taking up lucid dreaming. Oct 01, Eva rated it really liked it Shelves: A lot of the practical tips in this book can be found online, but for more background information on lucid dreaming research or the way people apply lucid dreaming, this seems to be the best book out there. Nov 17, Ryan rated it really liked it. Good introduction to lucid dreaming, the bible for lucid dreaming.
Aug 01, Ben Nesvig rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fascinating topic and book. It took me a year to get half way through another book on the topic. I read this in a week. While I haven't had a lucid dream yet, dream recall has picked up.
Aug 26, SundayAtDusk rated it really liked it Shelves: I was quite surprised Stephen LaBerge's book was so readable. Since he is strictly a scientific sort of guy, I feared the book was going to be slow and dry. Fortunately, it was just the opposite.
There are lots of first-person accounts, and the book never bogs down anywhere. LaBerge thinks there are no such things; you don't travel out-of-body at nights, and you can't "raise the dead". No, you are supposedly just talkin I was quite surprised Stephen LaBerge's book was so readable. No, you are supposedly just talking to yourself, if you encounter a departed friend or relative in a dream.
He doesn't come across real authoritarian on those matters, however; he just says those who believe in OBE's and ADC's are "naive". I think it's the author who is "naive" about those things, but who really knows?
In addition, I've never understood the logic or the attraction of the idea that everyone in a dream is actually you , or some aspect of you.
If you saw the waking world like that, you would be considered either extremely self-centered or downright mentally ill. Likewise, if you just spent all your waking time talking to yourself.
Yet, supposedly, according to experts like Dr. LaBerge, you are suppose to see all your dreams in an exclusively self-centered way.
Nevertheless, regardless if you agree or disagree with the author, this book should be a great read for anyone wanting a dream book to enhance their dreaming. Even if lucid dreaming is not your target, I'd still highly recommend it.

The author spends a fair bit of time discussing psychology, brain imaging studies, and meditation traditions particularly the dream yoga of Tibetan Buddhism.

I have slacked off on practicing, but when I was following the methods described dream journaling, techniques for "state checking" practicing asking yourself throughout the day if you're awake or asleep, and figuring out what signs indicate one or the other , and inducing lucidity , I had a couple of lucid dreams. For example, in one I was talking with someone I never see in real life, so I realized it was a dream and decided to take off and fly over the cityscape of the dream.
This is an accessible book to start with if you are interested in lucid dreaming, i. Oct 30, Ana rated it it was amazing.
I'm not typically a big fan of nonfiction books, so I was understandably very apprehensive before I began reading. I didn't expect to enjoy it, but this book proved me wrong. I've always been fascinated by the science of dreaming, and a few years ago, I learned about Stephen LaBerge.
Many people look at dreaming as a religious or spiritual experience that is inexplainable. Seeing it from a purely scientific perspective was very refreshing, and taught me many new things about the topic. We spent I'm not typically a big fan of nonfiction books, so I was understandably very apprehensive before I began reading. We spent nearly half of our lives sleeping, so why not learn an appreciation and understanding for dreams?
Many of the common knowledge is incorrect, and seeing this book prove it wrong and point its audience in the right direction was very interesting. I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to understand what we spend half of our lives doing: Mar 13, Zelemir rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is a good introduction to lucid dreaming, explaining the possibilities of what you can do when you are lucid.
However getting there is something that is not what I managed with the help of this book, encountering problems with all the techniques I from the book I have tried which all mostly summerize to: While dreaming was discussed in length, as far as I can remember there was no such in depth mention of the mechanics of sleep itself something that would have helped me a lot.
I realise that that was not the focus of the book, but this missing information has lowered the value I got out of it. Aug 17, GilianB rated it it was amazing Shelves: The standard work on lucid dreaming.
This book provides a thorough introduction to the subject. As I was already familiar with the topic, I already knew the various lucidity induction techniques.
Besides these methods, the book also talks about theories of dreaming, psychology, etc. Many lucid dreaming reports are included, which make me feel that I still have a lot to explore during my nocturnal journeys. When I first learned about lucid dreaming, I was extremely excited and the topic has from t The standard work on lucid dreaming. When I first learned about lucid dreaming, I was extremely excited and the topic has from then on always fascinated me.
Given enough self-discipline, you WILL have lucid dreams. Hopefully, this book can make you enthousiastic about the topic. Dec 18, Ramon Blanquer rated it it was amazing. Strong foundation on the topic.
LaBerge thinks like a scientist so all the knowledge it's quite robust, and I guess that's why this book written in the 90s is still a good reference for many as it was back then. Really enjoyable to read, easy to follow, and far away from the meaning of dreams and interpretation, which in my opinion it makes it more objective and serious. Dec 09, Shakshi Banka rated it really liked it.
