CNS5216 Lucid Dreaming
Lucid dreaming is the act of bringing waking consciousness into the dreaming state. In this course, cognitive and experimental scientific research in the field of lucid dreaming will be explored. This course interweaves aspects of consciousness studies, religious studies, and transpersonal psychological theory into our understanding of the subject. We investigate how lucid dreams are related to out-of-body experiences, the subtle body, and other states of consciousness, while considering how lucidity affects our processes of psychological transformation and spiritual development that move us towards personal, interpersonal and planetary balance. Throughout the course, students learn experiential methods to become conscious while sleeping and what is possible once lucidity is achieved.
