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.

Way more than I hoped for

There is so much substance in this book that it will require a re-run multiple times, but I do not mean this as a bad thing. It is a complete guide.

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.

A Welcome Practice to Dream

You will never dream the same again! This book enlightens your mind and heightens your experience of the temporal sphere of light (the source / nothingness) - which we experience in the next layer of our perception. As we move along our journey from birth to death, the practices of mindful meditation may help us to see that which is right in front of us. The non-duality of the source.

A bit complicated

I found it difficult and complicated audiobook with many terminology that need to be understood. I think it is a good book but it is better to have a proper read instead of the audiobook.

Good Book, Bad Narrator

For some reason, the audio book narrator took several liberties in editing the author's specific directions for men and women. She even omitted entire paragraphs. I wonder whether any author would approve of an audio book narrator's edits like this. I also question Audible's quality control personnel. How did they let this reading slip through the cracks? I would not buy another audio book narrated by Marcy Vaughn.

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

Excellent book on using sleep to meditate

A clear and lucid dissertation of active dreaming, controlling your dreams and using your sleeping phase of your life to center yourself. Practices that are well known today and practiced by sleep specialists like myself. Yet this book shows how old these techniques are and how many people have used this form of meditation to help them grow old without the pain, fear and anger that makes old age so difficult. A wonderful book that you will learn much from.

Excellent guidance

The content provides excellent,authoritative, easy to follow guidance for actual practice and accomplishment of an authentic path of spiritual awakening. The narration is pleasant, and calming, and her pronunciation of Sanskrit terms is very good. I will continue listening to this many times to reinforce this excellent teaching. As for there being gaps in the dialogue, I only noticed this once or twice. It is very minimal. Overall it is very pleasant to listen to, and very applicable to dream yoga and spiritual practice in general.

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!!

Skipping

I’m not sure why they took it upon themselves as to shorten the book and skip around sounding like a scratched CD or damaged audio file. Good book was no need to shorten it
