Comments from Workshop Participants
This workshop was WAY beyond anything I could've imagined. Every subject I was interested in was touched upon. Robert's presence, vast responses,
and encouragement were out of this world...literally! smile I'm so excited to continue on this path.
Robert is a great teacher. A world treasure. Having him and the community her has drawn here has really me focus on the goals
I set for myself in the course. There have been a lot of great contributions by the participants in the course as well.
I received a great expansion in my perspective on lucid dreaming.

This workshop has been a spiritual journey that FAR exceeded my expectations. It has touched me really deeply. The content is wonderful.
However; it has been Roberts care, encouragement and gently challenging us all to go deeper into our dreaming experiences that makes this
workshop truly excellent. Robert lives the lucid dreaming teachings; it clearly shows in his careful and kind attention to each participant
and inspires me to try and live lucidly and with awareness and compassion. Robert is a wonderful teacher and facilitator who goes that extra mile to
help each one of us. I am so grateful for this experience, and feel really blessed to be part of it. I will remember this workshop experience forever. Many many thanks.

I think the course is excellent for beginning lucid dreamers and also has tons of info for advanced lucid dreamers who want to take lucid dreaming deeper.
This workshop takes the subject of lucid dreaming much deeper
than any author or presenter on the subject ever! I highly recommend joining the workshop!

Naturally Robert brings his immense wealth of experience and pioneering spirit to the subject but I will always be especially grateful
for his generosity with his time. Always accessible and unerringly insightful, Robert helped me to expand not only my practical knowledge
but he broadened my philosophical outlook as well.
My dream and waking life has definitely been enriched by the experience.

I would like to say how grateful I am for Robert's sharing of his decades of experimentation in Lucid Dreaming.
He is insightful about the extraordinary potential of LD, very gentle in encouraging all to learn and examine their beliefs, and generous,
informative and extremely attentive in the forum. I want also to express gratitude to Glidewing, for making important teachings on the nature of 'reality'
and consciousness available to interested people the world over.

The course made a lot of profound concepts accessible and I
will continue to go back to and benefit from what I learnt for a long time. The support from both Robert and Caroline was wonderful: personal,
supportive and insightful. It really added to the learning experience.

Lucid Dreaming and Living Lucidly
With Robert Waggoner
October 8 - November 6, 2016
Learn the Art and Science of Lucid Dreaming, and Learn to Live Lucidly
Throughout history, experienced lucid dreamers have used lucid dreaming as an expressway into greater spiritual development, realizing the nature of consciousness and the inter-connected knowing that Carl Jung theorized as the collective unconscious. Some, like the Indian Buddhist yogi, Naropa, have suggested that the main technique of dream yoga, lucid dreaming, offers serious students one of the six pathways to enlightenment.
On the surface, lucid dreaming seems simple, curious and fun – a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. There, you can fly through space, create fire breathing dragons or magical unicorns, and cast spells like Harry Potter, all in the safety of your subconscious mind. Lucid dreaming’s potential for creative play and joyous pleasures seems infinite.
Scientifically validated for thirty years, recent neuroscientists have deemed lucid dreaming a “hybrid state of consciousness” since the dreaming brain and portions of the waking/conscious brain show simultaneous activation. In other words, when you are lucid dreaming, your conscious mind and your subconscious mind join in a shared creative collaboration, or a unique, hybrid state of consciousness.
This workshop reaches out to all explorers of lucid dreaming – from the inexperienced beginner to those who have ventured far along the path. Our workshop instructors, Robert Waggoner, Past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, is the author of the highly-acclaimed book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, and more recently, Lucid Dreaming Plain and Simple with co-author Caroline McCready. Robert Waggoner is an internationally recognized authority on the subject of dreams and lucid dreaming, and frequently speaks at global conferences, events and on radio talk shows.
Robert successfully taught himself how to lucid dream in 1975, and since then, has logged more than one thousand lucid dreams. Caroline has been lucid dreaming since childhood and teaches lucid dreaming from a multidisciplinary approach, drawing on practices from a variety of cultures and traditions. In this workshop, with their decades worth of combined experience, they will instruct you on how to create a stable lucid dream, operate within it and understand the fantastic nature of this co-created, yet principled, lucid dreaming environment.
Over the course of a month, this workshop will take you much deeper than the lucid dreaming basics. In this workshop, you will learn how experienced lucid dreamers use this state to access personal creativity, inner knowledge and spiritual wisdom. You will see how others have used lucid dreaming to overcome emotional blocks, direct healing intent to physical ailments, and explore the Self.
Moreover, you will explore how to utilize the lessons of lucidity and bring them into your waking, day-to-day life so that you can live more lucidly. Naturally, bringing greater awareness into your waking life can lead to greater lucid dreaming. Similarly, learning how intent, expectation, beliefs and focus influence your lucid dreaming can give you liberating insights into how to use those same mental activities in your waking life - and consciously co-create a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life.
