The Sleep of Clear Light: How falling asleep with awareness can change your life
Beginning April 11, 2017, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will offer a new, five-week series of TWR LIVE teachings on sleep yoga. A powerful tool for awakening, sleep yoga is more than a practice of the night. It helps us to integrate all moments—waking, sleeping, meditation, and even death—with the clear light of awareness.
Each Tuesday of the five-week series, Rinpoche will offer a teaching and guided meditation; each Thursday he will answer viewers' questions from the previous session and guide a supportive meditation practice. All sessions will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time U.S. (New York time) and last for 30 to 40 minutes.
