About Beverly (Kedzierski Heart) D'Urso, Ph.D.

SEE MY FULL RESUME AT: http://durso.org/beverly/beverly_resume.html

As combination mystic and scientist, I, Beverly (Kedzierski Heart) D'Urso, have been called the world’s most prolific “lucid dreamer.” I developed the ability to “know I am dreaming while I dream” when I faced up to terrifying witches in my childhood dream. In my twenties, the renown pioneer of Lucid Dreaming, Dr. Stephen Laberge, chose me as his primary subject for decades of research at the Stanford Sleep Laboratory. Numerous major magazines, such as LIFE, Smithsonian, OMNI, and Parade, television specials, books, and radio talk shows have featured my life and my dreams. Using my practical philosophy called lucid living, with a related web site, I have taught my own workshops since 1991, and have presented at conferences for decades, where authors constantly tell me “You HAVE to write a book,” and I say, “Are you dreaming now?” Working with Stanford University Professors, I completed my Masters degree in 1980, involving Cognitive Psychology, and my Ph.D. in 1983, focussing on Artificial Intelligence. Prior to being a researcher, consultant, and a college professor, I created several startup companies, and over sixty publications, on my computer work and on my dream work. To allow for the greatest flexibility, I currently combine my writing and presenting with being a wife and mother, and I contribute the wonderful balance of work and family in my life to lucid living!

My notes on the IASD

I first attended an IASD conference in 1985 at the University of VA (UVA), Charlottesville, VA. Dr. Stephen LaBerge of Stanford University invited me to serve on a panel at the Lucid Dreaming Symposium. See my presentation called "Personal Exploration of Lucid Dreaming", Kedzierski, Beverly (Heart D’Urso), Lucidity Letter, Proceedings from the Lucid Dreaming Symposium (ASD 1986 Panel), Volume 5, Number 1, June, 1986.
