Banyen's Description: 

In Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light, now available in a new, expanded edition with additional material from a personal Dzogchen book Namkhai Norbu has been writing, Norbu Rinpoche gives instructions for developing clarity within the sleep and dream states. He goes beyond the practices of lucid dreaming that have been popularized in the West by presenting methods for guiding dream states that are part of a broader system for enhancing self-awareness called Dzogchen. In this tradition, the development of lucidity in the dream state is understood in the context of generating greater awareness for the ultimate purpose of attaining liberation. In his preface, Michael Katz writes of the revisions: “This material expands and deepens the first edition’s emphasis on specific exercises to develop awareness within the dream and sleep states…It includes specific methods for training, transforming, dissolving, disordering, stabilizing, essentializing, holding, and reversing dreams. In addition, he has presented practices for maintaining one’s practice throughout all moments of the day and night. The revision also includes a practice to develop the illusory body, profound clear light practices for developing contemplation, and methods for transference of consciousness at the time of death.”

In addition to material on the nature and classes of dreams and methods of practicing the essence of dreams, there is also a clarifying interview with Namkhai Norbu, who also wrote The Crystal and the Way of Light.

“…filled with fascinating accounts… opens up a whole new world to the serious practitioner of meditation.” —Yoga Journal
