Andrew Holecek

Join Andrew as he talks with noted science writer James Kingsland. James is a medical and science journalist with over twenty-five years’ experience working for publications including New Scientist, Nature and the Guardian, a British daily newspaper, where he was a commissioning editor and contributor for its Notes & Theories blog.

Join Andrew as he talks to the psychologist and lucid dream therapist Kristen LaMarca as they explore a host of fascinating topics that include: lucid dream nightmare therapy, sleep state misperception, imagery rehearsal therapy, PTSD, alternative world syndrome, the importance of proper “holding environments,” and the type of person who is amenable to these unique forms of dream therapy.

In this Webinar Andrew discusses the subtle discriminations we have against the dark, and our unhealthy infatuation with light. This is ironically one of the signatures of the Kali Yuga, or Dark Age – and it’s only getting worse as artificial light spreads across the globe, and across our lives.

Many people are surprised to learn that there are physical benefits of lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming has been shown to improve motor skills, which means it has the ability to help you with any physical activity, from playing the piano to athletic performance.

In this Webinar Andrew discusses the importance of good sleep hygiene, which “prepares the bed” for lucid dreaming. He starts with Western approaches, then transitions into the more subtle Eastern approaches. Good sleep hygiene adheres to the maxim, “The preliminaries are more important than the main practice,” and is a key component to lucid sleep onset.
