Lucid dreaming is a term used to describe the ability to become conscious during a dream. During lucid dreaming, people can go wherever and do whatever they wish in the dreamscape. They can ask questions of their dream symbols and discover hidden meanings and messages from their unconscious. Lucid dreaming is fun, fascinating, beautiful, insightful, and transformative! It helps people actualize their goals and improve their quality of life. People have also reported physical healing benefits. Everyone has the ability to dream lucidly but it takes practice. For some, it comes more easily than others. This type of dreaming is not new. It has been around for thousands of years and practiced extensively in different parts of the word. Australian aboriginal societies believe that the dream state is the true state of existence.
Precin became interested in lucid dreaming when a patient reported extensive lucidity in her dreams. She believes that lucid dreaming has a wide application to psychoanalysis. Precin will begin with a presentation of factual information and resources on lucid dreaming followed by people sharing their experiences with lucid dreaming and end with practical daily exercises to begin or improve your lucid dreaming.
Pat Precin is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine at the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, a practicing psychoanalyst, and lucid dreamer.
