This is a list of my favorite dream, astral projection, and out of body experience books. At the time of this writing (08-Jul-2013), it’s rather small. But I had to start somewhere.
Book Title : Are You Dreaming?: Exploring Lucid Dreams: A Comprehensive Guide
Year : 2013
Author : Daniel Love
From the Publisher : Discover the Universe Inside your Mind
Astonishingly, there is around a 1 in 10 chance that you are dreaming at any given moment… including right now!
Every night, you adventure inwards to a universe made from the very fabric of your being: your dreams. Dreaming accounts for around 11% of your daily experience and, amazingly, each year you will spend an entire month dreaming. What if you could ‘wake up’ to this mysterious world, to learn to consciously explore the inner depths of your mind? Such an experience is indeed possible. It is called ‘Lucid Dreaming’.
My Thoughts : This book is one the best and most recently published books on the topic of lucid dreaming. I love the way the Daniel Love talks about lucid dreaming in the first chapters of this book. He really does a fine job of describing the incredible joy you can have while exploring the world of your dreams.
He then goes on to explain and teach you some of the best known ways to become lucid while dreaming.
Book Title : Dreams of Awakening : Lucid Dreaming and Mindfulness of Dreams & Sleep
Year : 2013
Author : Charlie Morley
From the Publisher :
Dreams of Awakening is a thorough and exciting exploration of lucid dreaming theory and practice within both Western and Tibetan Buddhist contexts. It not only explores lucid dreaming practices, but also the innovative new techniques of Mindfulness of Dream and Sleep, the holistic approach to lucidity training which the author co-created. The book is based on over 12 years of personal practice and the hundreds of lucid dreaming workshops which Charlie has taught around the world, in venues as diverse as Buddhist temples and dance-music festivals.
My Thoughts : This book came to me in a timely manner when I could benefit most from its teachings. I have always identified myself mostly with Tibetan Buddhist teachings, and this book fits perfectly into many of my beliefs and practices. I love how the author can talk about both western and eastern teachings interchangeably. I feel very comfortable in ready it. This book inspired some of the dream experiments listed on this website, as well as others not listed on this website.
