Long time listeners will recall that Stan Krippner PhD was my guest on Show #95 On Dreams and #30, speaking with us about Scientific Parapsychology. Dr. Krippner is also an expert on altered states of consciousness, which of course include dreaming. Currently a faculty member at the Saybrook University in San Francisco, he is a world-reknowned psychologist, who among other things is recognized for his ground-breaking work in dream telepathy and other psychic phenomena. Dr. Krippner has authored or co-authored more than 25 books. He also has hundreds of academic publications to his name and has received far too many honors and awards to list here. I strongly recommend that you explore his website at www.stanleykrippner.com to see just what an amazing career he has had. If you are at all interested in extra sensory perception, I recommend you read Dream Telepathy: Experiments in Nocturnal Extrasensory Perception (Studies in Consciousness) by Ullman, Krippner, and Vaughan. Dr. Krippner’s autobiography, Song of The Siren: A Parapsychological Odyssey, which is out of print, would make a fascinating read if you can find a used copy on the net. He will be a presenter at this year’s upcoming 32nd annual conference of the International Association for The Study of Dreams which will be held in Virginia Beach, June 5 – June 9, 2015.

GREAT interview, Dave. Thanks so much for all you do!
One must take note of Dr. Krippner’s endorsement of lucid dreaming as therapy for PTSD issues, and of confronting nightmares in general. After close to a year of being exposed to the opinions of the depth psychology community, I’m impressed with the acceptance of LD and the various expressions of its use therapeutically. Dr. Krippner continued, saying that there are many reliable methods available to get the lucid dreamer started.
In turn, I’ve benefitted from the many methods employed to work with dreams and visionary experiences outside the scope of lucidity, including active imagination.
Thanks Dr.’s Dave and Stanley Krippner for this interview.
