In the modern era Sigmund Freud observed that the most common dreams are typically the product of our anxieties and preoccupations. The prevalence of common dreams has spawned mechanistic type theories by contemporary scientists hypothesizing the inconsequentiality of all dreams. In this book I have attempted to balance the slate by consolidating information as to the function and meaning of dreams, and the transcendent possibilities they represent. In contrast to the aforementioned quasi scientific theories, rich Dream Yoga traditions attribute mystical and trans-personal value to some classes of dreams. Tibetan Buddhist Dream Yoga masters, along with teachers from other traditional cultures, recognizes that, while it is true that many dreams are relatively inconsequential in regards to content, some dreams have great significance.

With Dreams of Light, a world-renowned expert in lucid dreaming and Tibetan dream yoga guides us into the tradition's daytime practices Most of us are absolutely certain that we’re awake here and now—it’s a given, right? Yet, according to Tibetan dream yoga, ordinary waking life is in fact a delusion, as illusory as our nightly dreams. In his previous book Dream Yoga, Andrew Holecek guided us into Tibet's nocturnal path of lucid dreaming and other dimensions of sleeping consciousness. Now, with Dreams of Light, he offers us a step-by-step guide to Tibetan dream yoga's daytime practices. Known in Tibet as the "illusory form" practices, these teachings include insights, meditations, and actions to help us realize the dreamlike nature of our lives. Through an in-depth exploration of the tradition, beginners and seasoned practitioners alike will learn everything they need to enter the unexplored realms of our waking states. "If you've struggled to awaken in your dreams," teaches Holecek, "these techniques will often spark spontaneous lucidity during sleep. And if you're already a successful lucid dreamer, they will open you to new depths of experience throughout your day." For those curious about altered states of consciousness, psychedelic therapies, and near-death and out-of-body experiences, Dreams of Light opens a time-honored gateway to kindred—and for many, even more profound—terrains of perception.

It's a sensible enough notion that our unconscious would contain valuable insights, given that all we experience is stored there. Yet the idea of accessing those insights can be an elusive one, and until now, the subject usually has been discussed in abstract terms. Dream Finder pioneers a more concrete, practical approach for using dream incubation to tap the wisdom of the unconscious and to be guided by it in waking life. Author Philip Dunn offers four distinct meditation techniques to try before sleep in preparation for dreaming. Instructions to follow during sleep include specific methods of entering a lucid dream, recognizing the dream state from within it, remaining in or returning to the lucid dream, performing tasks in and controlling the direction of the dream, neutralizing a nightmare, and waking from a dream. Dunn also provides techniques to use after waking to remember, record, and understand dreams, gives helpful guidelines for interpretation, and illuminates familiar dream themes. In addition to refreshingly straightforward, actionable instruction, Dream Finder provides thought-provoking reflections on the spiritual aspects of dreaming, as well as fascinating historical context for the techniques and theories presented. Dream Finder is a rare combination of useful, uplifting, and compelling reading.

While a rational consciousness grasps many truths, Gananath Obeyesekere believes an even richer knowledge is possible through a bold confrontation with the stuff of visions and dreams. Spanning both Buddhist and European forms of visionary experience, he fearlessly pursues the symbolic, nonrational depths of such phenomena, reawakening the intuitive, creative impulses that power greater understanding. Throughout his career, Obeyesekere has combined psychoanalysis and anthropology to illuminate the relationship between personal symbolism and religious experience. In this book, he begins with Buddha's visionary trances wherein, over the course of four hours, he witnesses hundreds of thousands of his past births and eons of world evolution, renewal, and disappearance. He then connects this fracturing of empirical and visionary time to the realm of space, considering the experience of a female Christian penitent, who stares devotedly at a tiny crucifix only to see the space around it expand to mirror Christ's suffering. Obeyesekere follows the unconscious motivations underlying rapture, the fantastical consumption of Christ's body and blood, and body mutilation and levitation, bridging medieval Catholicism and the movements of early modern thought as reflected in William Blake's artistic visions and poetic dreams. He develops the term "dream-ego" through a discussion of visionary journeys, Carl Jung's and Sigmund Freud's scientific dreaming, and the cosmic and erotic dream-visions of New Age virtuosos, and he defines the parameters of a visionary mode of knowledge that provides a more elastic understanding of truth. A career-culminating work, this volume translates the epistemology of Hindu and Buddhist thinkers for western audiences while revitalizing western philosophical and scientific inquiry.
