"Using clear concepts, illuminating images and metaphors, and effective practices, Rinpoche transmits a comprehensive, profound view of the teachings that lead to realization of our true nature." Martin Lowenthal, author
"This book gives detailed instruction for dream yoga, including foundational practices done during the day. In the Tibetan tradition, the ability to dream lucidly is not an end in itself--rather it provides an additional context in which one can engage in advanced and effective practices to achieve liberation. Dream yoga is followed by sleep yoga, also known as the yoga of clear light. It is a more advanced practice similar to the most secret Tibetan practices. The goal is to remain awake during deep sleep when the gross conceptual mind and the operation of the senses cease. Most Westerners do not even consider this depth of awareness a possibility, yet it is well-known in Tibetan Buddhist and Bon spiritual traditions.The result of these practices is greater happiness and freedom in both our waking and dreaming states. The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep imparts powerful methods for progressing along the path to liberation. A detailed guide to using our night-lives for awakening: thought-provoking inspiring and lucid."--Stephen LaBerge, PhD, author of Lucid Dreaming

About the Author
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, a lama in the Bon tradition of Tibet, presently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia. He is the founder and director of Ligmincha Institute, an organization dedicated to the study and practice of the teachings of the Bon tradition. He was born in Amritsar, India, after his parents fled the Chinese invasion of Tibet and received training from both Buddhist and Bon 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 and America.

Metaphysics is a difficult subject to write about. Tenzin Wangyal is to be congratulated in writing so clearly, originally and authentically. This is no dry book with only theories, but comes from a man who was born for the role. It carries many personal anecdotes to illustrate his eminently practical approach.
it might not open a closed mind, but an open mind will welcome it
it isn't perfect, but there are some things written on a few pages that people wouldn't learn in a lifetime, and are to be cherished. My favourite bit is where it speaks of trying to solve greed by consumption is like trying to cure thirst by drinking salt water
can you read that thought and not buy it?
(if anyone is interested, I am an atheist, and don't believe anything supernatural)
This book works on a physical level with the breathing exercises; on a spiritual level by seeing through illusion, and on a mental level with the psychology of how the mind works.
If you want to get down and dirty with stripping away social conditioning and awaken from the dream, this glimmer of hope can be your handmaiden on a journey of delightful self discovery.
