STUDY DAY 75 - PSI AND LUCID DREAMING - 10am to 5.15pm - 28 APRIL

 Registration is closed for this event
The study day will consider the use of lucid dreams both within conventional psychology and in the investigation of transpersonal and psychical experience.

It will emphasize the historical links with psychical research, with the world’s first sleep-lab researcher in this area describing how he invented the first ‘dream machine’.  From a psychological standpoint, various personality factors are linked to lucid-dream frequency, and the strong relationship to dimensions of fantasy, hypnotisability, boundary thinness and transliminality can help to identify skilled lucid dreamers.  The subject also has practical aspects, such as an aid for coping with nightmares, improving health and developing skills during lucid dreams.  From a psychical research standpoint, the anecdotal and experimental evidence for shared states of consciousness suggests the possible re-conceptualisation of parapsychology as transpersonal psychology.  The day will end with a general discussion, including audience participation.
