Back in the day, which is to say the early 1990s, when I was wearing flannel and too much patchouli, we read Stephen Laberge’s book Lucid Dreaming (now out of print), and we liked it!  I was 20 years old, and the work transformed my dream life. Since then, Laberge went on to pen an […]

Lucid dreaming is practically a household name now, but so many confusions and misconceptions persist about what it really is like to be aware you’re dreaming. Part of this issue stems from the wealth of introductory information on lucidity that caters more to what people want rather than what is really going on in the […]

I’ve been under a rock for the last 8 weeks — a baby rock, that is. My son Thomas Sebastian was born in early December and let me tell you what, he is already 15 lbs of cheeks and smiles.  We are feeling really blessed in the Hurd domicile. Because of this change in our […]

TL;DR answer: it’s beginning to look pretty likely. In case you missed it, in 2014 researchers in Germany confirmed that zapping the brain of subjects can routinely induce lucid dreams. (By zapping, I mean applying a low voltage current stimulation to the scalp). In the study, published in the journal Nature: Neuroscience, and conducted by Ursula Voss and […]

What started out as a blog meant to keep me writing after leaving grad school is now announcing the results of my own original dream research. So, to the research: the galantamine research I conducted with […]

Our memory of dreaming is absolutely terrible.  Perhaps it’s by design, but most likely it’s just an artifact of the terribleness of human memory in general. However, if you keep a dream journal for longer than a few months, and especially for longer than a few years, you will find that your dream life has […]
