Dreaming Ahead of Time – Gary Lachman on Precognitive Dreams

Can we see the future in our dreams?

Does time flow in one direction?

What is a ‘meaningful coincidence’?

Renowned esoteric writer Gary Lachman has been recording his own precognitive dreams for forty years – dreams, that is, in which he has caught a glimpse of the future. In a unique and intriguing new book, Dreaming Ahead of Time, Lachman recounts the discovery that he dreams ‘ahead of time’, and argues convincingly that this extraordinary ability is, in fact, shared by all of us. Along the way Lachman explores the related phenomenon of synchronicity, or “meaningful coincidence.”

Dreaming Ahead of Time is a personal exploration of precognition, synchronicity and coincidence drawing on the work of thinkers including J.W. Dunne, J.B. Priestly, C.G. Jung, Colin Wilson, P.D. Ouspensky and others. Lachman’s description and analysis of his own experience introduces his readers to the uncanny power of our dreaming minds, and reveals the illusion of our careful distinctions between past, present and future.
