About Ed Kellogg, Ph.D.

Note: Ed hosts IASD’s Paranormal Phenomena Forum ( http://www.asdreams.org/telepathy/ ). From 2002 - 2005 he created, organized and hosted IASD's first four online PsiberDreaming Conferences.

Ed earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Duke University for work investigating the role of free radicals and singlet oxygen in the aging process. He has published numerous papers on his work in fields as diverse as the biochemistry of aging, bioelectricity, general semantics, lucid dreaming, voluntary controls, and the phenomenology of consciousness. A proficient lucid dreamer himself, Ed has studied lucid dreaming and its applications for well over 30 years from the "inside-out", and has a long-standing interest in the phenomenology of dreaming. He has experienced hundreds of fully lucid dreams and has recorded and indexed well over 30,000 of his dreams. He directs the Phenomenological Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon.

In his workshops he teaches practical methods for bringing full waking consciousness into ones dreams, for controlling dream reality, and in exploring the outer limits of lucid dreaming. He has presented numerous papers and workshops on topics such as the lucidity continuum, lucid dream healing, lucid dream incubation, lucid mutual dreaming, out-of-body experiences, and the use of magic in lucid dream reality.

In respect to his own work, Ed writes: "I take a phenomenological approach to dreaming, in which I try to explore and to describe dreaming experience with a minimum of presuppositions as to its nature. This can prove far more difficult and complicated than many might imagine! The IASD website has the most easily accessible material of my work, through the various papers and abstracts I've posted on IASD's Paranormal Phenomena Forum ( http://www.asdreams.org/telepathy/ ).

Each of these short papers has a great deal to say about the phenomenology of dream reality, and of dream perception. However, I deal most directly with this question in the paper that I presented at the ASD 2001 conference titled "Lucid Dreaming and the Phenomenological Epoché". You can read the abstract at:


Also, abstracts of papers I presented on "Lucid Dream Healing" and on "Lucid Mutual Dreams" at the 1999 ASD Conference in Santa Cruz:
