The Art of Lucid Dreaming by Dr. Clare Johnson is a really terrific book, revealing all the accumulated practical knowledge that has been developed, by trial and error, on how to become fully conscious in dreams and able to control the events by mere thought. It is possible to learn the skill of “lucid” dreaming, which is the portal to our amazing inner universe. The author is an expert lucid dreamer, and has diligently gathered together all the available knowledge from many different sources. There are individual differences between people – techniques may work on some, but not others. Dr. Clare Johnson brilliantly enables people to classify themselves, and suggests those induction methods which fit their own personal characteristics. She also gives an awe-inspiring tour of the many lucid dream experiences – from exciting dare-devil pursuits (which are safe, of course), exploring new worlds, conducting healing, seeking spiritual advancement, and enjoying enhanced love-making. The result is a bonanza of useful information that will save the aspiring lucid dreamer a huge amount of time in achieving their goal.
