Dreaming While Awake Techniques for 24-Hour Lucid Dreaming by Arnold Mindell(updated May 11, 2011)

What if you could dream 24 hours a day, even while awake? According to innovative psychotherapist Arnold Mindell, PhD, we already do. The seeds of dreaming arise in every moment of the day, in body symptoms, problems, relationships, subtile feelings, interactions, random thoughts, and fantasies. We’re getting countless little cues from the unconscious every minute. All are signs from the world of dreaming. And, according to Mindell, we can be in this state of lucid dreaming all day long.

In Dreaming While Awake, Mindell shows how to become aware of these “flirts” from the dreamworld and how to interpret their message. The goal, he says, is to be wide awake and lucid 24 hours a day in the midst of this unending dreamfield of information.

Practicing 24-hour lucid dreaming:

Helps you solve personal, physical, and emotional problems
Serves as a preventive medicine for relationships and health, helping you catch the earliest warning signs before they turn into problems
Helps resolve conflicts in relationships, families, large groups, corporations, even politics
Dreaming is the mystical source of reality, says Mindell. “My goal is to make the Dreaming roots of reality so accessible, so visceral, that your conscious mind will give you back your right to dream.”

Arnold Mindell: Process Psychology and Your Dream Body

This 5 minute video is part of a series of upcoming educational videos that will show some of the basic concepts of process work, that is, process oriented psychology. Using art forms, music, and narration this video explains how dreams mirror body experiences. My partner and husband, Arnold Mindell discovered this mirror connection and called it the DREAMBODY (and published a book by that name).

The video is not meant to show an entire work with a body symptom but rather to introduce the viewer to the dreambody concept and to give the viewer a glimpse into the potential “dreaming” within us. See http://www.aamindell.net for more.
