No matter what your point of entry, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche has created a gem for practitioners, philosophers, intellectuals and spontaneous lucid dreamers alike.

With patience and openness, Rinpoche takes the esoteric topic of dream yoga, or conscious dreaming/sleep, and lays it open as an accessible aspiration for all practitioners without oversimplifying its very subtle complexities.

After an ample and inclusive philosophical walk through the the foundations of Buddhist/Bon practice, you'll suddenly find yourself rubbing elbows with one of the most complex and secret practices of all--Dzogchen. Don't be mistaken--you'll still need a teacher and weeks, months, even years of practice. But Rinpoche's compassionate and realistic tone makes the bliss of dream yoga feel like a real and viable eventuality for even the most flawed among us.

Few teachers are willing to lay out the nuts and bolts "procedures" of such an esoteric art to an open audience, but that's exactly what you'll find here. Whether you are Buddhist or non-Buddhist, beginner or tantric yogi, you'll find something fruitful in this refreshing and relevant explanation of a mysterious and transformative practice.
