On the Road with Lilou: Conscious Dreaming with Charley Morley (February 2014)

Season 3, Episode 6
Available worldwide

Everyone dreams, even if they don’t remember. However, not everyone is aware of the dream while they are dreaming. Lucid dreaming is the ability to be conscious in the dream state and make willful changes. Tibetan Buddhists call this consciousness practice Dream Yoga and it has the support of modern neuroscience. Charlie Morley explains the many benefits of lucid dreaming and offers simple techniques to begin this practice in this interview with Lilou Macé originally webcast February 7, 2014.

Charlie Morley, author of Dreams of Awakening: Lucid Dreaming and Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep, is a teacher of the holistic approach to lucid dreaming within the context of mindfulness meditation and Tibetan Buddhism. In 2008, he became one of the first Westerners officially authorized to teach lucid dreaming within the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. This allows him the rare ability to synthesize both Western and Eastern perspectives on lucidity.

Merci Lilou! J' ai beaucoup aime. Best interview! I have been having lucid dreams spontaneously for years, and was not really aware of their importance. When I'm in this state , I am somewhat woken up, and made aware to be conscious and to receive the input. It is not in this dimension, so the physical laws are different. I do know that you can direct it, do amazing things in these dreams, and feel very connected to the spiritual realm. I love being in this state and usually have a much better day; more centered. Very expansive, and peaceful. Thank you Lilou, Gaiam, and Charlie. Do make your way to Santa Fe

This is amazing and so is Charlie! Come to NYC for a workshop and I'll be there!

Mid way through the interview I bought the book and have always wanted to learn. Having just turned 30 this year and finding my path, this is going to really add onto the transformation in my life. Thank you so much Charlie and Lilou. Greatest of blessings to you both.

What a great interview Lilou, about a verrrry interesting slice of life. I believe I have a better appreciation for the need to train the mind in this particular way. When I find myself saying, in response to something unbearable happening in my dream state; "This is a dream. That's it! I'm outta here!" I'll remember that it's 99% me, and it would benefit me to accept rather than run away from whatever it is about myself I find so totally unacceptable, in order to move through it. Can't wait to get a new dream journal, his book, and go to bed!

We all happen to be one. This is my opinion, and this was a great episode!! Very much resonate with "dying" in dreams, personally, I have reached ultra-exceptional potentials after allowing death, loss, fear, or other bad things..absolutely agree with Charlie! Embrace your dreams!!

Also, just started keeping my dream journal again(means ACTUALLY writing down your dreams in the morning). It is truly AMAZING what we can remember if we begin to write down every detail that we can remember..I often only wake-up remembering a small segment of my "travels", or dream experience, but when i begin to write, i begin to remember EPIC-and not-so-epic, journeys that I had traveled during the night!!

Thanks again Lilou and charlie!! Y'all are both beautiful people and i love you very much! I am very happy that other people do, in fact, realize that there is nothing that seperates us and the next person. What we can truly do with that realization is truly, un-believable, as it takes "every-one" to believe that it is happening. wonderful experience, and i will meditate/practice more often.

I love how charlie discusses dream-states being able to REALLY influence our waking state. powerful stuff! I also love how he criticizes the waking state as not being that powerful, as the "translator of the Dalai Lama" i think he said it was.. anyways, very interesting stuff! ill stop babbling now.

Thanks juicy co-creators..luv her. ! :P ;) :D XD

Great subject. I've been trying to lucid dream for the past 20 years. It used to be easy when I was a child. I lost that ability ever since. I just ordered his book. I better get second job to support my habit of buying every book after I watch these Gaiam Tv interviews.
