The period following the death of a friend or loved one can be tumultuous for anyone, but can be especially difficult for children, with lasting effects if the loss is not acknowledged or supported. This book emphasises the importance of listening to children and helping them to create positive bonds that can sustain them as they go through their lives. It provides practical, creative approaches to support children in their time of bereavement and to those whose loved one is dying. By recognising feelings of pain, anger, and confusion through open and positive discussions, a child is able to build emotional resilience and create enduring memories of the person they have lost. The author explains the importance of developing continuing bonds between children and loved ones in times of bereavement and offers practical ways in which these bonds may be nurtured through creative activities, memory making, and personal storytelling.

Whether you’re a person who barely remembers your dreams or a lifelong lucid dreamer, this in-depth guide is the perfect next step as you cultivate the power of lucid dreaming. Praise: “Dr. Clare Johnson has energetically led the way in revealing the limitless practical and spiritual potential of lucid dreaming, so far-reaching it can change the world. Her clearly-written book is destined to become essential reading for all those interested in lucid dreaming. It points out the essential phenomena of lucid dreaming, and then amazes us by opening its extraordinary major vistas to us, that reveal the true glory and limitless potential of our inner universe. This is a significant book.”—Dr. Keith Hearne, the scientist who provided the world’s first proof of lucid dreaming in 1975, and inventor of the world’s first Dream Machine “Dr. Clare Johnson’s lucid dreaming guide stretches further and digs deeper than anything I have read. Her book is comprehensive, authoritative, and reader-friendly. A lucid dreamer herself, Dr. Johnson provides ways in which dreamers can use lucid dreaming for self-development, for enhancing creativity, for treating nightmares, and for healing themselves and their loved ones.”—Stanley Krippner, PhD, professor of psychology at Saybrook University and co-editor of Working with Dreams and PTSD Nightmares “A gift for lucid dreamers and would-be lucid dreamers everywhere, Dr. Johnson has written a powerful how-to resource book that is also inspirational. Highly recommended!”—Patricia Garfield, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Creative Dreaming “What a splendid book! Whether you are new to lucid dreaming or have been working with dreams and writing about them for over thirty years, as I have, you will find a rich source of fascinating information here. I felt I was being carried along by an expert storyteller because the book is so easy to read, though it deals with complex aspects of lucid dreaming—neuroscience, dream mentors, creativity, spirituality, telepathy and so much more.”—Brenda Mallon, psychotherapist and author of Dreams, Counselling, and Healing “What particularly caught my eye as a sleep medicine doctor is how lucid dreaming can benefit nightmares and various other sleep disturbances, including the parasomnias . . . Dr. Johnson has clearly established herself to be the ultimate guide to lucid dreaming. This is a magnificent book!”—Carlos H. Schenck, MD, sleep disorders expert and author of Sleep: The Mysteries, The Problems, and the Solutions “Dr. Clare Johnson’s book is thorough, covers the current research, includes deep, mature understanding of human psyches, and is so artfully written that it opens closed minds with the utmost logic and grace . . . I applaud Dr. Johnson’s depth of experience with lucidity and her extraordinary ability to place a vast spectrum of experiences in the context of a well-lived life.”—Dr. Gayle Delaney, founding president of IASD and author of All About Dreams “Dr. Clare Johnson has given us one of the most intelligent and useful books about lucid dreaming that I know. Founded on her own lifelong practice, with the armature of wide-ranging research, it is packed with practical exercises that will help you to wake up and dream.”—Robert Moss, bestselling author of Conscious Dreaming, The Secret History of Dreaming, and Dreaming the Soul Back Home “In this book, Dr. Clare Johnson describes how to initiate lucid dreams and how to prolong and control them. She addresses everything from how to interact with dream characters to enhancing creativity with lucid trance states to how to talk to your children about lucidity. Johnson also addresses specialized topics . . . Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Lucid Dreaming is filled with spot-on advice.”—Deirdre Barrett, PhD, Harvard psychologist and author of The Committee of Sleep “An unprecedented accomplishment [by] a master lucid dreamer . . . This work provides a broad review of the history of lucid dreaming, a summary of the leading-edge research in the area, and—most importantly—an eminently useful, user-friendly manual for readers willing to experiment with lucid dream induction and stabilization strategies.”—Scott Sparrow, EdD, psychotherapist and author of Lucid Dreaming: Dawning of the Clear Light “The book you are holding in your hand is quite extraordinary . . . It opens the way to profound development and greater emotional, intellectual, and spiritual maturity. Dr. Clare Johnson’s book is a wonderful, intelligent summation of much that is currently known and understood about lucid dreaming, as well as offering some keen observations about its possible future evolution. I believe it belongs on the bookshelves of all serious dreamers and dream workers!”—Rev. Jeremy Taylor, co-founder and past president of the IASD and author of Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill "Dr. Clare Johnson takes us on a tour through the fascinating and sometimes strange world of lucid dreaming. The book is a treasure trove of suggestions for inducing and enhancing lucid dreams, replete with many first-person reports and generously seasoned with results from scientific research and the history of lucid dreaming. Dr. Clare Johnson is uniquely qualified to take us on this tour, drawing from her academic research on lucid dreams, her experience as a writer of fiction, and her own experience as a lucid dreamer. This book comes as close to being a comprehensive overview of the field as one can imagine. Overall, this is an impressively creative and thoroughly charming discussion of lucidity, both in sleep and in wakefulness. It's an inspiring read—and also a fun one."—Dr. Jennifer Windt, lecturer in philosophy and author of Dreaming
