Experienced by millions as supernatural assault, sleep paralysis often includes realistic, and often frightening, hallucinations that are projected into the waking world. In Sleep Paralysis: A Guide To Hypnagogic Visions And Visitors Of The Night, these night visitations of ghosts, vampires-and even aliens-are honored afresh from the perspective of contemporary dream science. Although they can be terrifying, these visions can also be an excellent portal to other extraordinary states, like out-of-body experiences, lucid dreaming, and guided journeys to realms beyond our imagination. Sleep paralysis is the only print book that discusses sleep paralysis and its related dream visions from a how-to perspective -- a book for those who want to manage their sleep paralysis or engage more confidently with this ancient lucid dreaming technique.
This book on sleep paralysis has a tremendous contribution to understanding a realm of nocturnal experiences that have previously been dismissed as non-existent, irrelevant or pathological. Ryan Hurd offers very clear and valuable information on this neglected topic based upon his many years as an experiencer, and as a knowledgeable guide to the existing research literature.

Why don't people heal and just stay wounded--some even driven to suicide by their pain-despite the best that organic and psychological medicine can offer? To find answers, Russian--born psychiatrist Olga Kharitidi traveled to the exotic Samarkand, a major cultural and spiritual crossroads, and ancient capital of Uzbekistan, in the heart of Central Asia.
No stranger to mystical and shamanic experiences, Dr. Kharitidi had already immersed herself in Siberian native traditions of seeing and healing. Now, at the invitation of an emissary from an ancient secret brotherhood, Dr. Kharitidi set out to learn firsthand the secrets of healing deep emotional wounds. As she quickly discovered, to master these methods she would first have to heal herself.
Under the tutelage of the mysterious and charismatic Michael, The Master of Lucid Dreams and protector of esoteric teachings first given millennia ago, Dr. Kharitidi entered another world altogether. There, she saw how our deepest emotional traumas are held in place by baleful spirits and can only be overcome by the technique of dreaming while awake.
The Master of Lucid Dreams does not actually teach you how to be conscious in our dreams. This is for those that can already become lucid.

The Tibetan Yogas Of Dream And Sleep has instructions for dream yoga, including foundational practices that you do during the day. In the Tibetan tradition, the ability to dream lucidly is not an end in itself-but rather it gives you an additional context in which you can engage in advanced and effective practices to achieve liberation. Dream yoga is followed by sleep yoga, also known as the yoga of clear light. It's a more advanced practice like the most secret Tibetan practices. The goal is to remain awake during deep sleep when the conceptual mind and the operation of the senses cease. Most Westerners do not even consider this depth of awareness a possibility, yet it's well-known in Tibetan Buddhist and Bon spiritual traditions. The result of these practices is greater happiness and freedom in both our waking and dreaming states. The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep imparts powerful methods for progressing along the path to liberation. This book is a detailed guide to using our night-lives for awakening: thought-provoking inspiring and lucid.

Lucid Dreaming: Gateway To The Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self. While lucid (consciously aware) while in the dream state and able to act and interact with objects, dream figures, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer -- the apparent Inner Self -- within his dream. At first this seemed shocking, even impossible, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Subliminal Self, the Center, the Internal Self-Helper in vague and theoretical ways.
Waggoner came to realize, however, that aware interaction with the Inner Self was not only possible, but actual and highly inspiring. He concluded that while aware in the dream state, one has both a psychological tool and a platform from which to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man's psyche as well. Waggoner proposes five stages of lucid dreaming and guides the reader through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to a new level. Lucid Dreaming offers great insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the definition of reality.
