Jared Chiang-Zeizel

Jared Chiang-Zeizel is a published author, award-winning writer, lucid dreaming expert, and filmmaker. 

He first learned about lucid dreaming from his cousin when they were teenagers. They would induce a dream to mirror their favorite video games and practice getting better.

After high school, Jared graduated from video games, and started to use lucid dreaming for more constructive tasks. While attending NYU, he would rehearse presentations, map out projects, and use creative problem solving in his lucid dreams to deal with a heavy workload.

In 2011, he started working with lucid dreaming enthusiasts, Dylan Tuccillo and Thomas Peisel. Over the next two years they scoured any and all sources on lucid dreaming. They used themselves as guinea pigs and tested out every lucid dreaming technique they came across. Their goal — to write a book with the most efficient and clear cut methods to have a lucid dream. An attempt to remove any new-age nonsense and heady academic verbiage, so that anyone could pick up their book and learn how to lucid dream. 

In 2013, ‘A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming‘ was released by Workman Publishing. Upon its release, the book was an indie bestseller. It is currently available in 11 languages. 

Jared has been featured on NPR, Vice.com, Elle Magazine, Oprah.com, Gaia (GaiamTV), and numerous other media outlets. He has contributed work to Men's Fitness, Huffington Post, and Tricycle Magazine.

Jared currently works as a lucid dreaming teacher, dream consultant, and freelance writer. 

At the moment of this reading, he resides in Los Angeles.
