This month we will have Dr. Robert Price sharing with us his knowledge and personal experiences on lucid dreaming and out-of-body experiences. Dr. Price is a clinical psychologist with strong research and personal interests in sleep and dreaming, lucid dreaming, meditation, altered states of consciousness, human bioenergies, and the nature of reality.
While a graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin, Dr. Price managed the sleep laboratory. During that time, he conducted sleep lab studies of REM sleep auditory biofeedback, the narrative structure of dreams, lucid dreaming, eye movement signaling techniques, and frequent nightmare experience. Price has published several articles on these subjects, including a chapter on lucid dream induction, and has presented his research at scientific conferences. This intensive study of lucid dreaming triggered a number of extremely vivid lucid dreams that had a profound impact on Price’s view of human consciousness, dreaming, and OBE.
After receiving his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Texas in 1992, Price completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Austin State Hospital, where he went on to work with the severely mentally ill for 25 years, serving for five years as director of psychology. He is currently serving as president of the Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies (INACS).
As always, the idea is to have an informal meeting in a relaxing environment that is conducive to discussion and learning. Hope to see you there, and feel free to invite people you know who are interested in the subject.
