What is Dream Yoga? A Buddhism Explained Video from Science and Poetry of Sleep, Dreaming and Death : Bob Thurman Podcast – Ep. 176

An in-depth exploration of the Tibetan Science of Healing Sowa Rigpa‘s perspective on sleep, dreams, and death using personal experience, Buddhist teachings and poetry.

Video begins with Robert A.F. Thurman discussing the place of sleep in a balanced lifestyle, the value of dream interpretation within Buddhist medicine diagnosis and treatment, his personal experience learning from the Dalai Lama’s physician, the renowned Yeshe Dhonden and a recommendation of the work and teachings of Dr Nida Chenagtsang.

Includes a deep dive into the miss-titled “Tibetan Book of the Dead”, the Buddhist understanding of the Eight Stages of Death and it’s connections to Sowa Rigpa’s holistic system of healing as taught in the Yuthok Tradition.
