Research on Lucid Dreaming and Therapy
As part of my research, which addresses lucid dreaming as a therapeutic tool, I distributed a survey among lucid dreamers and analyzed the results. I am happy to share the findings of my study here. The study (anonymously) reveals some of the fascinating experiences that dreamers describe having in their lucid dreams and their impact on their waking lives. You are invited to join the study on lucid dreaming and contribute to the advancement of this field by filling out the research questionnaire.
Since the mid-1970s, when the existence of lucid dreaming was proven in a sleep laboratory, awareness of this phenomenon among the general public and of the ways to achieve clarity in dreams has been increasing. But what happens after this clarity is achieved? Most lucid dreamers fly, have sex, or talk to dream characters. Beyond this, it is possible to use lucid dreams in therapy or as support for spiritual development, in order to impact our lives significantly. Over the years, there have been documented cases of many people who have experienced healing with the help of lucid dreaming. New studies are trying to understand the effect that lucid dreams have on different areas of waking life.
Body psychotherapy is a branch of psychotherapy that was formulated based on the idea that functional unity exists between mind and body. It is a form of therapy with a long history, containing a vast body of theoretical knowledge and is intended to alleviate emotional suffering and support personal development processes, as well as a return to a deep connection with the essence of the true self. Body psychotherapy is based on studies about the interrelationship between body and mind.
