A lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer “wakes up” inside the dream. This hybrid state of consciousness allows the dreamer to gain conscious control over the elements within the dream. Past research has shown that practicing physical skills during a lucid dream can boost waking performance. The IONS team is now asking the question of whether experiencing healing in a lucid dream will boost a person’s health.
On Friday, June 4th, lucid dreaming expert, Charlie Morley, joined IONS scientist, Dr. Garret Yount, for our latest ConnectIONS Live webinar. The webinar announced the launch of this exciting new study that will examine the healing potential of lucid dreams. During the webinar, Charlie Morley elaborated on the theory of healing lucid dreaming within both Western and Tibetan Buddhist contexts, and Dr. Yount described the study’s design and officially launched the recruitment phase of the study.
We invite you to watch a recording of this webinar to hear more about how the Healing Lucid Dreams Pilot Study can positively change the way we think about our world.
This video is available to the public until Friday, June 11th. After that date, it will be available to IONS Members only.
