#95 – Dr. Stanley Krippner on Dreams


Long time listeners will recall that Dr. Krippner was my guest on Show #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 Graduate School and Research Center 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 24th annual conference of the International Association for The Study of Dreams which will be held at Sonoma State University, June 29 – July 3, 2007, and you are invited to attend! This episode closes with the podsafe music selection “Code Monkey” by Jonathan Coulton.

    I wonder if his idea of what he’d do if he had a huge grant is something the guys at Psyleron (see podcast #210 with John Valentino) would be interested in toying with?

    At the end he was talking about gender differences in dreams, and I was wondering if anyone has done any research into the dream structures of hermaphrodites? Particularly in our understanding of such concepts of Anima and Animus?

    Awesome dude to listen to, that was very interesting, cheers!
