I’ll start with an
I’d like to start with a show of hands:
How many people have heard me speak before???
Who heard me in Copenhagen at IASD2004???
I will start with an overview. As we discussed, lucid dreaming occurs
when while asleep, you have awareness, at some level, that you are
Who would you call the “dreamer” in your nighttime dreams???
I typically call the person asleep the “dreamer.” To get more precise,
I think of the “dreamer” as one’s physical body’s mind, although
I would not say that one’s “brain” contains one’s “mind.” As an
analogy, I see our mind more as a radio broadcast than a physical radio
and its parts. Our brain may tune us into certain stations, but it does
not act independently.
Once we understand, and hopefully have experienced, lucid dreaming and
related topics, such as levels of lucidity and techniques for becoming
and staying lucid, we can discuss what I call lucid living. I need to
first give you a little background on myself and my views of lucid
dreaming, so you can see how I came up with the idea of lucid living.
Throughout my life, I have discovered many uses for lucid dreaming.
Some of these include: psychological development, exploring new
behaviors, healing, and much more. I’ve found that all of these can
apply, whether we find ourselves asleep or what we call “awake.”
Who thinks they know what I mean by lucid living???
Next, I need to cover a little
I remember having had lucid dreams since about the age of seven. I
faced up to scary witches in a recurring nightmare. You can see my web
site: http://beverly.durso.org for several detailed
descriptions of this dream and other places where it got published. I
will also put this presentation on my website soon after the conference.
Basically, I recognized recurring dream scenes where I begged these
scary witches, who hovered over me, to “Spare me tonight and take
me in tomorrow night’s dream.” Because they only came when I was
dreaming, one time, while they hovered over me, I faced up to them and
they flew away ending these nightmares.
Years later, I helped do research on lucid dreaming at the Stanford
Sleep Laboratory. I signaled, using electrodes near my eyes, from the
dream to the physical lab while definitely asleep and dreaming. I
also led workshops and taught others how to have lucid dreams, and I
have given presentations on the topic at IASD conferences for over 20
I have remembered, on average, six dreams per night, for most my of
life. I’d call between 2 and 20 dreams per week lucid, to various
degrees. So, I estimate that I have had over 20,000 lucid
sleeping dreams in my life so far. As you can tell, I have had many
more non-lucid dreams than lucid dreams.
How many lucid dreams would you say you have???
One per week?
One per month?
One per year?
A few in your life?
All the time?
My dreams usually seem like what we could call waking physical reality
until I become lucid, although I often know that I am dreaming
from the start of the dream. I believe in levels of lucidity, on
a spectrum from slightly to extremely lucid. Sometimes my non-lucid
dreams seem very bizarre, and yet I ignore this sign of dreaming and
rationalize the experience.
For the next four or five minutes, I will cover some basic issues and
terminology. These apply to both lucid dreaming and lucid living.
SPONTANEITY VERSUS CONTROL***
How many people think you need to control your dream to call it lucid???
In my lucid dreams, I feel free to go wherever my imagination takes me,
and I take care to balance spontaneity and control.
Keep in mind that, you can have a lucid dream without having control of
the dream. Unfortunately, the media often stresses control as the main
benefit of lucid dreaming.
The ability to control your own reactions, or to control the action,
characters, or environment in your dreams can help indicate your level
of lucidity, but you can definitely have a lucid dream without control.
However, at times, I feel that it helps to take control of the action
in the dream, for example, when you want to carry out goals.
Once, when working on my Ph.D. dissertation and experience a case of
writer’s block, I used control in my dream to get me to my desk and
surrender to get myself to sit.
I often find it best to “surrender” to the lucid dream. I don’t use the
word “surrender” to mean “give up,” but rather to mean “go with the
flow.” In this case, I still have control, but of my own reactions and
not of what happens to me. I do not automatically feel fearful, for
example, when something scary happens. I now often what I call
“surrender flying” to get places in my lucid dreams, where I get pulled
from my heart area, by an invisible force.
I only need to remain conscious that I am dreaming. When conscious that
I am dreaming, I think of my “physical body self” as safe in bed, so I
have less fear, see more possibilities, and view my true “self” as one
with the whole dream environment. With lucidity, I also have more
choices. In other words, I don’t need to change a monster. I can look
it in the eye without fear and find out what it wants.
Although I focus on awareness rather than control in my lucid dreams, I
do not call my lucid dreaming witnessing. I can experience myself fully
in the dream, yet not of it, meaning that I know while dreaming that my
part of my self exists outside of the dimension of the dream.
To me witnessing seems like watching a movie or a play. Dreaming seems
more like acting in a play. In a lucid dream, I act in a play in
perfect character, have all the character’s feelings and consequences,
yet still see myself as essentially the actor, and possibly the
producer and director as well.
Next, I’d like to discuss the concept of:
Who do think the characters represent???
Aspects of yourself?
People from your waking physical reality?
Illusional or “made-up” beings?
With lucid dreaming, I feel as though I inhabit a character in my
dream. This dream character seems to exist in another dimension
from my physical body, albeit a three-dimensional world that
One dream character often looks and acts like me. I sometimes call this
my dream-body or dream-self. I may experience other dream
characters that look like someone I know or someone that I don't know.
I imagine that one or more of these other characters might get
inhabited by a person from what we might call waking physical reality,
or even by someone who has died. In a similar way, I can perhaps
inhabit a character in another person’s dream. This concept allows for
what we call “mutual dreaming” and “psychopompic dreaming.”
I once tried to meet a student in a lucid dream. I got lucid by
noticing a woman who had died, but I tried to rush off and find my
student before I listened to the woman. From this dream, I learned that
I kept getting blocked until I first dealt with what I found in front
As for dream characters, I still believe that, at some level, the
characters in my dream represent aspects of my mind, even if inhabited
by others who, in a sense, serve as actors taking on the roles of
characters in a scene.
When lucid, I realize that my dream-body does not reside in what we
might call “waking physical reality,” but in what I might call my
physical self’s mind, not necessarily in my brain. When I wake up, I
merely change dimensions or perspectives. We can say that I take on the
role of a new character, or inhabit my physical body once again.
When I find myself in a lucid dream, the dream character that I
inhabit, or my dream-self, sometimes tells other dream characters that
they are dreaming. Other times, a different dream character may say
this to my dream-self.
Has anyone here had another character tell you that you were dreaming???
When I experience a high level of lucidity, either all the dream
characters I encounter know that they currently exist in a dream, or I
encounter no separate characters at all.
I consider myself “not completely lucid” when I encounter any
characters in my dream that don't believe they currently exist in a
dream. I say this because I believe that if any aspects of my expanded
mind do not have lucidity, then I cannot call myself completely
I’d like to ask Robert Waggoner to take a couple of minutes to describe
his view of dream characters or “entities,” which I believe he will
speak on in depth during our panel on Sunday from 2 to 4 in Cooperage
2. On this panel, I will focus on Interactive “Dream Healing” and Ed
Kellogg will delve into “Demons”!!!
The next topic asserts that we:
CAN’T PROVE WE ARE NOT DREAMING***
We can think of having lucidity as not getting fooled, or not having
the “illusion” of existing in a physical reality.
If you remember any dreams, perhaps you have gotten fooled by a dream
that seemed real while it took place. You may have even said, “I
can’t be dreaming, this seems too real.” Maybe you find that you
couldn’t fly as you could in other dreams. However, when you wake up,
you realize that you got fooled and you really were dreaming.
We can say that lucid dreamers don’t get fooled. They know, at some
level, that a dream does not have to follow physical laws. Non-lucid
dreamers assume that the physical laws hold because they lack lucidity.
I believe, then, that you can not know with absolutely certainty that
you are not dreaming at any time. As in the case where you got fooled,
you may just not have enough lucidity to question or notice that you
might be dreaming. Even after you wake up, you may not remember
that you dreamed.
Now a little about CONNECTING TO
We can also say that, when lucid, your dream character’s mind connects
with the mind of the dreamer, or that the mind of the dream character
has expanded. The dream character can now remember and act upon the
goals, memory, and thoughts of the dreamer.
For example, the dream character can remember goals that your mind, the
dreamer, may have set up to do in the dream before you went to
sleep. The dream character and the dreamer can then co-create the
dream, although the dreamer may still have intentions that the dream
character does not have awareness of, even in lucidity.
Who here has become lucid in a dream and remembered and carried out a
As a lucid dream character, I do not detach myself from the dream
environment, but rather I see myself as equivalent to the environment,
the other characters, and more. Also, detaching from the dreamer would
mean that I forget, at some level, that I help create the dream scene.
I would then lose some level of lucidity.
To summarize, in a lucid dream, I feel more present than in a non-lucid
dream, bringing my whole self into the experience. I experience myself
as more than just my dream body. I know that the source of myself
also exists outside the dimension of the dream, or inside the dreamer.
I have gotten a better sense of my “source,” or what we can call “God”
or our “higher power,” through lucid dreaming, than by my
metaphysical or religious training. These often seemed to infer that
God existed either inside my body, or somewhere out there, up in the
With this background, I now feel that I can talk about looking at life
as a dream or what I call:
When I view my waking life as a dream, a dream in which I know I am
dreaming, to various degrees, of course, I call this lucid living.
Waking life may feel 'real' and unlike a 'dream,' merely because I lack
lucidity, just as non-lucid dreams can feel like physical reality,
until I become lucid.
I try to view life as an "actual dream" and not to merely use lucid
living as a therapy or philosophy. The assumptions that come from
viewing life as a dream can give us power and can expand our
possibilities in life.
If I look at waking life as a dream, then I can also use lucid dreaming
techniques which I learned from my sleeping dream experiences, to more
easily become lucid in my waking life. One of the most valuable
techniques I use involves looking for unusual or recurring scenes in my
life, as I do in my sleeping dreams.
When lucid in waking life, I know unlimited possibilities,
feel safe and connected to everyone, and sometimes even experience
magic in my waking life, as I have in my sleeping lucid dreams. Next, I
want to tell you how I developed:
I had the idea of lucid living many years ago. First, I had a long
series of validated precognitive dreams in 1982 that made me question
the solidness of time and space, or what we call physical reality. I
described these in a talk at Bridgewater for IASD2006.
About the same time, I participated in many television specials on
lucid dreaming. In one, we filmed an experiment at the
Stanford sleep laboratory, to determine which part of my brain seemed
most active while I sang a song in a dream.
On a commercial for a national television special, which played over
and over again for weeks, I appeared on the screen in my bathrobe, with
electrodes all over my face, practicing the song, “Row, row, row
your boat ... life is but a dream.” I watched myself and
thought, “maybe life is a dream, and I do not have enough lucidity to
know this for sure.”
This led me to teach the benefits of calling what some call “waking
physical reality” a dream. I wanted to help myself and others to become
more lucid in life, which I called lucid living.
At first, I had a lot of trouble convincing others, and myself at
times that while awake, we can still exist in a dream. False awakening
dreams helped me practice questioning if I was dreaming, even when I
thought I had woken up.
In false awakenings, you think you wake up from a sleeping dream, for
example, in your bedroom. You keep thinking this until either, you
become lucid and know that you are still dreaming, or you wake up to
what you might call waking physical reality.
Because I have remembered an average of six dreams almost every night
of my life, I have gotten tricked many times by mistaking a dream for
my waking life, or what we might call waking physical reality.
I finally convinced myself that I can easily tell when I do not exist
in waking physical reality. This might occur when I can float, fly or
interact with someone whom I know has died. I say that I am
dreaming. Of course, not everyone would find these tasks easy.
Some may even say that we can fly or interact with the dead in other
realities besides dreaming.
For purposes of this talk however, I will discuss and assume only two
different realities, namely, dreaming and waking physical reality.
Then, I will try to convince you that both of these may have the same
properties, in other words, we can think of them as them as a single
reality and say that their differences stem from our own level of
consciousness, or lucidity.
I believe that we cannot prove that we are not
dreaming. Therefore, why not assume that we are always
dreaming, look at what that implies, and use lucid dreaming
techniques to become the more lucid in our waking lives.
If you prefer to consider many realities with different laws, so to
speak, then you could still say that all these realities make up one
single “experiential” reality. I don’t like to think this way, however,
because I like to view life as having the powerful and beneficial
“magic” that I find in my own dreams, and use dream analogies to
explain how life may work. I suppose you can consider my views similar
to traditional Buddhist or Hindu beliefs, which may call life a type of
dream, but in their case, they see life as “unreal” as a mere “dream,”
and they promote yet another different “true reality.
I’d like to ask Ed Kellogg to take a couple of minutes to describe his
view of “realities.” !!!
We now need to ask an important question. If we view life as a dream,
then who serves as the the dreamer? In other words, if we become
“dream characters” in the dream of life, who do we connect to when
lucid? My answer:
THE DREAMER OF LIFE***
In my view, there exists, outside of the dimension of life, or what we
sometimes call “waking physical reality,” an all-encompassing mind is
dreaming the dream we call life. I call this mind the Dreamer of Life.
In one sense, we can think of this Dreamer of Life as our combined and
We could also use terms such as our Higher Self, God, or Source in
place of the term “Dreamer of Life.” I feel that we can break down this
Dreamer of Life into many levels, as well, forming a type of “Tree of
Sometimes, I really do feel as though I am dreaming while awake and in
what some call waking physical reality. At these times, I feel
connected to the Dreamer of Life. I even notice many synchronicities in
my life occurring during these times.
However, I often get caught up in my life and forget that I might be
dreaming. Because of my experience in sleeping lucid dreams, I try to
never assume that I am not dreaming.
We can compare the process of connecting to the Dreamer of Life in
lucid living with traditional forms of prayer or meditation. In
practicing lucid living, I first stop my train of thought and imagine
that I am dreaming. I try to come from the perspective of this
Dreamer of Life, or our expanded self. I see others as aspects of it,
trust it, and surrender to its wishes.
With lucid living I feel that we can deal with our fears, see
unlimited possibilities, and experience the connectedness of
everything, So, I will go into each point in more detail.
EMOTIONS AND FACING FEARS***
In my sleeping dreams, I have found power in surrendering and fully
experiencing my emotions. For example, I have brought the scary
witches into my body, and I have gone with them to the place where they
When I find situations in my sleeping lucid dreams that seem impossible
or terrifying, such as jumping into fire or merging with a black void,
I challenge myself to tackle them head on. Sometimes, in my sleeping
lucid dreams, I find myself falling faster and faster down an
endless slide. I have learned to surrender to this sensation of
Has anyone here taken such “risks without risk” in a lucid dream???
I see a parallel to surrendering and facing our emotions in life. When
I practice facing my fears in life and surrender, as I do in my
sleeping lucid dreams, I usually have positive results.
When I have strong feelings, such as sadness, grief, or fear, I do not
necessarily have to express them outwardly in reaction. I can surrender
to them deep within myself, and try not to push aside or hold back my
By calling life a dream, I do not mean to imply that in my life, I take
what one might call “unreasonable risks” or necessarily expect instant
magic, as I often do in sleeping lucid dreams. I never take
dangerous actions unless I feel positive that I am dreaming, and I have
evidence that normal physical laws won’t apply.
In a sleeping dream, I usually figure that if I can fly, then I can
jump off a cliff. I realize, however, that I could lose lucidity,
and dream that I have broken all my bones.
In any case, when I have even a small amount of lucidity in my life, I
feel safer because I believe that I am more than just my individual
body and personality.
In waking life we may have the habit of thinking of our “body” as our
“self.” Similarly, in non-lucid dreams we might think of our
dream-body as our “self.” Of course, we wouldn’t use term “dream body”
because we wouldn’t recognize that we were dreaming.
In a non-lucid dream, we believe that if the body we currently inhabit
dies, we die, because we do not have awareness of our expanded self, or
the dreamer. We continue to feel this way until we wake up out of the
We might think, after the fact, that we could have responded
differently had we realized sooner that we were dreaming. We could have
become lucid and experience ourselves as more than just our body before
we “wake up” out of our dreams or in the case of lucid living, out of
our lives! In lucid dreams, I have often let myself die, knowing that I
exist as more that just a dream-body.
Has anyone here let their dream-body “die” in a lucid dream???
I also know that in sleeping dreams, when I dream that someone dies, I
don't necessarily expect that they have died in what we might call
waking physical reality. From the perspective of the dreamer they could
still be living.
I imagine that even non-lucid dreamers feel this way after they wake
up. So, I have to assume that when someone dies in my life, that
they haven't necessarily died from the perspective of the Dreamer of
POSSIBILITIES IN LIFE***
I also believe that I co-create my reality with the Dreamer of Life. As
in sleeping dreams, I recognize that the Dreamer of Life may have
intentions that I do not know about even in lucidity.
Whenever I feel myself in a dream, I believe that anything can happen,
in mysterious, or even magical ways. I can experience the joy of
helping make things happen more often in my life, by learning to become
lucid in waking life and set upon accomplishing tasks with a new
outlook, believing in unlimited possibilities.
At the very least, I can probably gain an understanding of how I may
block myself and try again, knowing I have endless possibilities.
An example, from an early stage of my sleeping lucid dream development,
illustrates this point. In my dream, I could not fly to my destination
because I kept hitting telephone poles.
When I eventually determined one time that I was dreaming, I could fly
right through the poles. I also realized that my mind may have created
the telephone poles to begin with!
A therapist once told me about a patient who could not get through a
block in his life, which the therapist related to his dream block of
not feeling able to fly through walls. After he suceeded in flying
through a wall in a lucid dream, his “related” block in life actually
CONNECTEDNESS OF ALL IN LIFE***
With lucid living, I experience everyone in my life as equal characters
in one dream. I see us all as aspects of the Dreamer of Life.
When I have lucidity in my life, I want to understand the Dreamer of
Life. I listen to others and try to see where there opinions come from,
and what they can teach me, without judging them.
Now I will focus upon:
LUCIDITY TECHNIQUES AND RECURRING
SCENARIOS IN LIFE***
As I have mentioned, I have developed techniques for becoming lucid in
my sleeping dreams, that I can also use in my waking life. In my main
technique, I look for unusual or impossible situations or recurring
Has anyone here let their dream-body “die” in a lucid dream???
A great example of using a lucidity technique in my waking life
occurred when I noticed recurring scenarios during my love
relationships before I got married. With many different partners,
I often found myself in an argument in a similar physical position and
My partner would be hovering over me looking scary and not unlike the
witches from my childhood dreams. During these arguments,
many times my partner and I actually stood in the same place in my
living room at the intersection of the couches that formed an L-shape.
The last time this scenario ever happened, right in the middle of the
argument, I suddenly thought, “This seems like a recurring theme. What
if I am dreaming?”
I immediately decided to see my partner as an aspect our expanded self,
or the Dreamer of Life. I thought about his point of view and
what he had to teach me. I had less fear. Internally, my reaction
changed. With trust and surrender, I stayed in the moment. You
could say that I faced up to my partner.
Exactly as the witches did when I faced up to them, my partner froze,
stopped yelling, and then turned and walked away. It seemed as
though I no longer needed to play out this drama. I had
solved it, as I did my childhood nightmares. In my next relationship,
my marriage of almost fourteen years, this scenario has not occurred.
By the way, my childhood nightmares took place in the same physical
location each time also, at the bottom of the back porch stairs of my
I used this method that I just described in many other situations.
Once, during a heated discussion with my cousin in the waking state, I
suddenly stopped to think, "If I look at this as a dream right now,
then my cousin actually expresses a part of our expanded self, or the
Dreamer of Life, which I want to understand.” At the exact moment I had
this thought, she actually started to explain how our points of
view seemed related instead of opposed.
Another time, while in a hospital, a doctor merely said something that
reminded me of a dream, and I immediately let go of my fear and
accepted the situation, which seemed so scary only moments before.
to accomplish in my lucid dreams serves as a wonderful technique to
motivate me to become lucid in a dream.
Sometimes after getting lucid in my nighttime dreams, I decide not to
change the direction of the dream, in order to carry out a goal. In
this case, I go with the flow of the dream. When I do have an
interesting goal, and feel that the situation calls for it, I get
motivated to become and remain lucid so that I can accomplish the goal.
In my lucid dreaming classes, I suggest that my students start with a
simple goal to accomplish in their lucid dream. I ask them to decide
the first steps of the goal ahead of time, while awake. They also must
think about how they can perform the steps from wherever they might
find themselves in the dream. I have discovered that a goal of
“becoming lucid” does not work as well as a goal of doing something fun
in the limitless world of dreams. We must remember this in life!
I’d like everyone to think of a goal that they would like to try in a
lucid dream which they can practice in waking life???
Now let’s move on to:
GOALS FOR LUCID LIVING***
In my waking life, I often “go with the flow,” but I still form
goals. When I determine my goals, I strive for them to conform with the
goals of the Dreamer of Life. This usually happens when I experience
great passion. In my life, I have gotten through many potential
blocks, while getting my Ph.D., enjoying an exciting and prosperous
career, and having an excellent family life.
I took this approach when I had a goal of having a family. A
series of dreams helped me see that my life was proceeding
appropriately, whenever I seemed to let go of hope. I dreamed of going
into my past and several possible futures to communicate with myself at
various ages. I also dreamed of my future child and took actions in my
sleeping lucid dreams to try to help the process.
Most importantly, I also had a belief while awake that things would
work out, even if they took longer or didn't proceed as I imagined.
This belief came from trusting my concept of lucid living, or seeing
life as a dream.
I acted with lucidity in my waking life when I met my husband. I
noticed him across the room at a party, went up to him, and talked to
him. Although much younger than me, I recognized him in some kind of
deeper sense, and I felt him playing a part in my future. I would call
this moment the most lucid in my life so far.
I felt that I completely surrendered to the Dreamer of Life, or our
expanded self. I stayed in the present moment continuously,
without fear, and with total trust. I remained with him and totally
focussed on him, while part of me observed our interaction.
I believed in magic and totally accepted whatever happened. I
listened to him, as if he truly formed part of my higher self. Married
for almost fourteen years, I still view him as my perfect mate.
I also used lucid dreaming and lucid living to overcome the tremendous
odds we had against bearing a child, as well. We now have a son who
just turned twelve years old.
Now, I would like to share a few
I believe lucid living can have a profound effect on all our
lives. Of course, as in our sleeping dreams, we can easily go on
automatic and lose lucidity.
However, the more we practice lucid dreaming skills, whether while
asleep, or during our waking life, the more lucid we will likely become
at all times. In this way, we can live the most illuminating, clear,
and conscious life as possible.
I usually suggest that you ask your self if you are dreaming everytime
you do some regular daily activity, such as walking up or down stairs.
Look around and perhaps even practice carrying out our goal, if you
can. Eventually, you’ll do this in a dream!???
If every person viewed life as a dream in this way, I believe that the
world could heal. Even if people simply opened up to the
possibility to seeing life may as a dream, the Dreamer of Life would
become more lucid.
Also I feel that, if any one person consistently believed they are
dreaming in life, then amazing healing of the world could take place. I
have this as a goal and it motivates me to make the effort to write and
present my ideas.
The Dreamer of Life needs to have more lucidity in order for us
to experience magic. We need to remain open to lucid living and look
for evidence that we are dreaming for this to happen. Then, when we see
the magic, our beliefs would strengthen, and we would see ourselves as
co-creators of our reality.
Like puppets, who think they act separate from the puppeteer, we often
feel disconnected. Using the puppet analogy, we can begin to identify
more with the puppeteer, or the Dreamer of life.
As in sleeping dreams, the dreamer can only speak through a dream
character. When a dream character connects to the dreamer in lucidity,
and the dream character doesn't get in the way, the dreamer’s goals and
thoughts can get manifested.
The Dreamer of Life, our Higher Self, or our Source needs us, its dream
characters, to connect to it so it can speak through us and get heard.
One can say that while we exist in life, because life seems real, we
can only call it a dream from an outside perspective, or after we
die. However, since we can know that we are dreaming while in a
sleeping dream, and remain in the dream, then why can’t we also know
that we are dreaming in the waking state while remaining in it.
As a sleeping lucid dreamer, I learned how to remain in a dream,
to wake up out of it, to change it, to go back into it, and to become
more lucid and accomplish intricate goals while in the dream. I would
like to do this, and more, in my waking dream as well.
So remember, I say we are dreaming now. View every situation in your
life as a dream, experience and let go of your fears, see unlimited
possibilities, including the connectedness of everything, and make your
own dreams come true.
In conclusion, I will present a list of
I have discovered that ancient traditions and religions, as well as
modern best-selling authors, movies, and songs talk about concepts
similar to lucid living. Some of these include: the Hindus and
Maya; the Buddhists and Connectedness; the Christians and Resurrection;
The Course of Miracles and the Happy Dream; plus Jane Roberts and SETH;
I would also add: Deepak Chopra; Wayne Dyer; Don Miguel Ruiz; The
Wizard of Oz; Star Trek; The Matrix... The list goes on and on.
Let me share my favorite: “Row, Row, Row, your boat, gently down the
stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream!”
