Wake Up! Exploring The Potential of Lucid Dreaming is a fascinating lucid dreaming DVD from Kira Sass and Chris Olsen.
The documentary was shown twice at the IASD Conference in Chicago in 2009 and has created quite a buzz - not least because it's one of those unique opportunities to learn about the power of lucid dreaming on DVD.
"The film is a mixture of personal lucid dream experiences, insights, and relevant research," Director and Producer, Chris Olsen, said in the September 2009 issue of the free quarterly magazine, Lucid Dreaming Experience.
"Some of the lucid dreams described in the film include several spiritual experiences; a child who discovers lucid dreaming and its healing potential in the midst of struggling with terminal illness; a psychotherapy patient who confronts and embraces a threatening dream character; an artist who frequently browses an art gallery of his dreams and paints the picture he finds there; and a woman who works through the grief of losing her father by encountering him in a lucid dream." Indeed, they cover a stunning range of lucid dreaming applications. These interviews will inspire many new ways to use your lucid dreams - beyond the initial novelty value that most people attribute to dream control.
"In that dream space, something truly incredible and mysterious is happening."

The documentary focuses on how lucid dreaming can potentially impact on waking life - honing in on three areas: creative expression, psychotherapeutic healing, and spiritual growth. It also features numerous interviews with lucid dreaming experts, which took place at the 2007 IASD Conference in Northern California.
Wake Up! Exploring the Potential of Lucid Dreaming features interviews with prominent dream researchers such as Robert Waggoner, author of Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, and Fariba Bogzaran, author and founder of the Dream Studies program at John F Kennedy University.
"Let's wake up! Let's wake up in our relationships, let's wake up in where we work, let's wake up in where we live."

It also features other lucid dreaming experts who consciously encounter the dreaming imagination - the source of countless scientific, artistic, psychological and spiritual breakthroughs throughout history. In this lucid dreaming DVD you will share the journey of a handful of pioneers who are exploring the wonders and mysteries that dwell at the intersection of dreams and consciousness...
A lot has happened in the last 5 months. But how did we go from business as usual to changing the face of the entire lucid dreaming supplements industry? It’s a story that I think will interest you – and you might even learn a thing or two in the process. When I was first taken on-board as Chief Lucidity Officer in 2016, one of the first things I was tasked with was taking a good look at our operations and giving things a bit of an overhaul.
Gather round. I’ve a story to tell. It’s a story of tragedy, re-birth and fresh beginnings... But fear not, it has a happy ending! Our forum had some pretty impressive stats at its peak: 60,171 posts, 134 people online at once and over 10,000 registered users.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
Years ago, before I had my first lucid dream, I had a very specific idea about what a lucid dream would feel like. I thought it would be intense and magical and a little bit spooky. This turned out to be a pretty accurate representation. Becoming aware in the dreamstate is like entering another world. One where physical laws can be manipulated (there is no spoon, Neo) and your fantasies can come true in an instant. There's definitely something magical about that - and it's as if the lucid dream world is a living, breathing organism that can react to your very thoughts.
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
It is estimated that these wise and wily Indians have been using mugwort in their healing and ritual practices for 13,000 years, where it is known as the ‘dream sage’. They use the herb to promote good dreams, which they consider an essential aspect of normal human functioning! But that’s not all...
