The Lucid Dreamer



I've recently started reading this book, The Lucid Dreamer, A Waking Guide for the Traveler Between Worlds, by Malcolm Godwin. Perhaps one of the things I appreciate the most are the illustrations, ranging from the little known to Surrealist paintings and diagrams showing brain activity.

Yes,

This book is liberally illustrated. The front cover is Magritte, the back Rousseau, inside there's some George Tooker, Samuel Bak, Max Ernst, etc.

Thanks for dropping by.

Katherine -- This looks like a book I definitely need to check out. The artwork you posted is stunning.

Hi Zataod,

I love a book with pictures!

This one is almost like a digest of many various dreaming concepts.

Yeah I've had this been for a number of years now, although haven't re-read it for some time. It's a great book, one of the better lucid dreaming ones out there from my experience. Enjoy!
