Wilber led to Steiner, and both kept mentioning lucid dreaming in such a peculiar way that I figured it’d be worth looking at. This is the popular book by the leading researcher, and there’s enough practical advice here to start practicing. I usually have trouble remembering my dreams at all, and that’s the first step. Then you have to get used to checking for “dreamsigns.” Once the critical state test becomes second nature, you can expect to check while you’re dreaming–and becoming lucid. I had a first success two nights ago, but the moment I realized I was dreaming I got so excited I woke up….

I got a second book about lucid dreaming from a Buddhist perspective–Tibetan Dream Yoga–that seems much less utiliterian than this one so far.
