Publisher's Summary

It is said that the practice of dream yoga deepens our awareness during all our experience: the dreams of the night; the dream-like experience of the day; and the bardo experiences after death. Indeed, the practice of dream yoga is a powerful tool of awakening, used for hundreds of years by the great masters of the Tibetan traditions. 

Unlike in the Western psychological approach to dreams, the ultimate goal of Tibetan dream yoga is the recognition of the nature of mind or enlightenment itself. "If we cannot carry our practice into sleep," Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche states, "if we lose ourselves every night, what chance do we have to be aware when death comes? Look to your experience in dreams to know how you will fare in death. Look to your experience of sleep to discover whether or not you are truly awake."

About the author: Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is a lama in the Bön tradition of Tibet. He is the founder and director of Ligmincha International, an organization dedicated to the study and practice of the teachings of the Bön tradition. He was born in Amritsar, India, after his parents fled the Chinese invasion of Tibet and received training from both Buddhist and Bön teachers, attaining the degree of Geshe, the highest academic degree of traditional Tibetan culture. He has been in the United States since 1991 and has taught widely in Europe, North and South America, and Asia.

The audio has holes, skips parts of the book

What a great book, unfortunately the audio has a lot of holes, suddenly the track will skip in the middle of a sentence like a scratched CD

I will listen again many times

This is a great opportunity to learn the Yoga of dreams and sleep. Tenzin Rinpoche opens up a precious teaching. If you have familiarity with Buddhism you will understand more but it is with for anyone. I had a very different idea of what would be the yoga of dreams and lucid dreaming and his approach is detailed and with examples. Very worth listening!!

Interesting

Really liked the practical side as well as the theoretical, well written and motivational. Although I will admit that I’ll have to revisit this one (probably more than once) to fully appreciate it.
