Benefits of Lucid Dreaming – A Conversation with Thomas Peisel, Jared Zeizel and Dylan Tuccillo, co-authors of A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming
authors Thomas, Jared, Dylan_color
Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche in conversation with the co-authors of the bestselling A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming: Mastering the Art of Oneironautics. Together, they will discuss the basics of lucid dreaming — how to be aware that you’re dreaming while you’re dreaming — explain their favorite lucid dreaming techniques, and describe how they have personally benefited from this profound nighttime practice. Enjoy this unique opportunity to learn and be inspired by these four avid lucid dreamers.

Thomas, Jared and Dylan are are award-winning writers and filmmakers based in Manhattan and Los Angeles, each with their own story. Thomas had his first, spontaneous lucid dream as a young child, and as a teenager he read everything he could about this unique experience. Today he studies under the ‘Drukama’ tradition, whose practitioners aim to attain a radiantly clear, realized mind through meditation and face-to-face transmissions with a teacher. Jared also learned about lucid dreaming during his teenage years. Through lucid dreaming he’s bathed in the sunlight while flying, battled giant robot ninjas, conversed with the darker aspects of himself, and practiced controlling energy.  He sees lucid dreaming as a chance to step through the mirror of dreaming, an opportunity to push the veil of our realityaside and glimpse at the nature of the universe. He also likes hanging out with baby tiger cubs.

Dylan was exposed to lucid dreaming by Thomas and Jared after meeting in college. He gawked at this amazing ability and soon found himself flying over the ocean, talking with guides and exploring Mexican villages.  A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming was a product of their friendship and conversations about lucid dreaming. Moved to share with others their techniques and experiences, the trio raised funds for their book through Kickstarter.com. Picked up by Workman Publishing, the book has since been translated into 11 languages, with more than 50,000 copies sold worldwide.
