Paleolithic mind, polyphasic cultures, lucid nightmares and much more.

This interview with Ryan Hurd, noted researcher, author, and veteran lucid dreamer covers a wide range of fascinating material. We discuss the “archeology of consciousness,” and what Ryan refers to as the Paleolithic Mind. We talk about polyphasic cultures that honor dreams, and the limitations of our monophasic view that colonizes and dismisses states of consciousness it can’t fully experience. The conversation then turns to some of the shadow sides of lucid dreaming, Ryan’s expertise with lucid nightmares, and how to work with fear – seeing it as a good sign.

“We have to go to the underworld to enter the upper-world.” We talk about sexuality and dreams, using the “safe sex” of lucid dreams to transform the heat of passion into the warmth of compassion, and how to work with this connecting energy in what Buddhists call “the realm of desire.” In this interview with Ryan Hurd, his intelligence, scholarship, and passion for lucid dreaming is clearly evident in this rich romp.
