What Lucid Dreaming Means and How we Can Learn From It
Have you ever wondered how lucid dreaming can help you in your waking life? Today’s episode on Gateways is about lucid dreaming and how we can learn from it with Charlie Morley, a bestselling author and teacher of lucid dreaming, shadow integration and Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep.
He has been lucid dreaming for over 20 years and was “authorized to teach” within the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism by Lama Yeshe Rinpoche in 2008.
He has written four books which have been translated into 15 languages, and he has spoken at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, the Ministry of Defence Mindfulness Symposium, The Houses of Parliament to name a few.
In 2018 he was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship grant to research PTSD treatment in Military Veterans and continues to teach people with trauma affected sleep a set of practices called Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep.
I first learned about lucid dreaming from the Mindvalley community, as Charlie is a teacher on the Mindvalley platform.
