Do you dream?
Of course you do. Everyone does.
When someone says that they don’t dream what they’re really saying is that they don’t remember their dreams, not that they didn’t have any. In a dream we still have access to all our five senses: we can see, touch, taste, hear and even smell in dreams. Sometimes a dream is so real that it’s indistinguishable from waking reality.
What if it were possible to go to sleep tonight and wake up inside one of your dreams? Think about it. If you knew that you were dreaming, the possibilities would be endless, right? Maybe you’d fly across the ocean, reunite with a past love or relative, talk with dream characters, or explore new talents you never knew you had.
Turns out, we can do this, and it isn’t science fiction.
It’s called lucid dreaming.
Our book, Oneironautics: A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming, is an illustrated guide for those wishing to learn how to lucid dream. In it you’ll find everything you need to know to have your first lucid dream, as well as practical advice on how to take it even further–what to do after you become lucid.
With the help of beautiful illustrations, our guide will teach you everything from flying with control, to dealing with dream characters, to shooting fireballs. It’ll even dive into the depths of nightmares and show you how you can turn them into your advantage. You’ll learn how to stabilize and guide your dreams as well as how to overcome common mistakes that beginning Oneironauts often face.
