Where GLiDE started, what our objectives are, and what it means to experience lucid dreams.
GLOBAL LUCID DREAMING EXPERIMENTS began in 2007. The first GLiDE set a baseline for the lucidity of dreams. What is lucid dreaming?
WIKIPEDIA says, ” A lucid dream is any dream during which the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. The term ‘lucid dream’ was coined by Dutch author and psychiatrist Frederik van Eeden in his 1913 article A Study of Dreams, though descriptions of dreamers being aware that they are dreaming predates the term.”
Lucid dreaming is a potential experience for homo sapiens, one that is becoming more commonplace. Our experiments are becoming a growing repository for lucid dreaming accounts from around the world and across cultures, religions, races, ages, and nationalities. They provide valuable research documentation of the consciousness shifts both individually, and collectively. Participation is open to all!
There are many reasons why people desire the experience of lucid dreams. The first usually involves the pleasure and excitement of being able to control one’s dreams and achieve actions that are not possible in the waking, physical world. These studies are intended to archive dream records during particular times and in some cases under particular conditions for the purpose of present and future study of how consciousness is evolving globally. We welcome the participation of people around the world. Register today for our next GLiDE!
The Universal Peace Covenant, a document of great importance, states that “Living Peaceably begin by Thinking Peacefully”. This brings the idea of lucid dreaming – being consciously aware of what you are thinking in the day and in the night – alive. What came to be called the “Peace GLiDE” revealed the impact that walking the walk and talking the talk has. Dr. Barbara O’Guinn Condron, GliDE director, reports: On September 6, 2009, I witnessed a unique opportunity to explore the human potential for dreaming peace – in the day and the night. This 3-step experiment included 100 people from four countries and fourteen states in the United States.read more
