What It’s Like to Control My Nightmares With Lucid Dreaming

By

Science writer Alice Robb taught herself how to lucid dream a few years ago, on a research trip to Peru. In her new book, Why We Dream: The Transformative Power of Our Nightly Journey, Robb writes that most people experience a lucid dream at least once in their lives, but “only about 10 to 20 percent have them regularly.”

While her newfound powers have made her nighttime life much more exciting — allowing her to experience adventure and escape nightmares — they’ve also helped her deal with loss and grief. In this video, she shares her surreal experience with lucid dreaming.
