Ryan Hurd on Lucid Immersion

by Anne ~ April 18th, 2012

Ryan Hurd is great fun to talk to because he is so knowledgeable about dreaming. I recommend his books to my clients all the time, and we have discussed sleep paralysis and otherworldly dream visitors on the air before. But when he came out with his new Lucid Immersion Blueprint, I decided to step it up and try a video interview this time.

We cover a lot of ground in this talk, and here are some highlights you won’t want to miss:
