Digital Audiobook (6/17/2019)
At the edges of consciousness, between waking and sleeping, there’s a swirling, free associative state of mind that is the domain of liminal dreams. Working with liminal dreams can improve sleep, mitigate anxiety and depression, help to heal trauma, and aid creativity and problem-solving. Readers of Liminal Dreaming will learn step-by-step how to create a dream practice outside of REM-sleep states that they can incorporate into their lives in personally meaningful ways.
Praise For Liminal Dreaming: Exploring Consciousness at the Edges of Sleep…
—JASON SILVA, host of National Geographic’s Brain Games
“Falling asleep is not a loss of consciousness but an offering from the psyche to anyone with the wisdom to accept it. Jennifer Dumpert is pointing the way to a door that’s already open—one more accessible, sustainable, and transformational than any drug or virtual reality.”
—DOUGLAS RUSHKOFF, author of Team Human
“With patience, clarity, and insight Jennifer Dumpert, a seasoned dreamer, leads us through this land of hypnos, making available to the reader a third state of consciousness: neither day nor night but somewhere on the edge of both, a place of creativity, intuition, and vision. Many books put their readers to sleep. This one can take you to the edge of it and leave you there to dream.”
—GARY LACHMAN, author of A Secret History of Consciousness
“Liminal Dreaming provides us with an array of personal exercises—a pragmatic vehicle for directly experiencing this ‘wild psychedelic ride’ through imagination, mystery, creativity, and healing. By reminding us of the natural continuity between waking and dreams, this work reminds us of our own innate wholeness."
—RUBIN NAIMAN, PhD, clinical assistant professor of medicine, University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine
