An avant garde set of improvisational essays, Richard Grossinger’s The Bardo of Waking Life is a meditation on the Tibetan Buddhist bardo realm which, in popular culture, is viewed as the bridge between lives, the state people enter after death and before rebirth. This book examines waking life and its history and language as if it were a bardo state rather than ultimate reality, and thus seeks a context for life (and dreams), even as it addresses more "mundane issues" including genetic theory, the war in Iraq and George W. Bush's presidency, North Korea, advertising, global warming, Prison Industrial Culture, childhood trauma, even country western music. Written with playfulness and precision, Bardo takes a new, probing approach to all the important questions of creation, destruction, and existence. In these intellectual field notes, Grossinger proves thematically fearless as he crosses quantum mechanics with totemic hexes and draws transcendental insight from the ephemeral space-time we call daily life. If, as Tibetan cosmology holds true, all conditional realms are bardos, then the state we all share is nothing less than the bardo of waking life.

A guidebook through the journey of life and death draws on Tibetan Buddhist traditions and uses lighthearted analogies to introduce the concept of the bardo--the intervals of life, death, and beyond--in order to counsel readers on living a fulfilling life of fearless abandon.

Denise Linn entered the field of dream interpretation following a near-death experience when she was shot and left, believed dead, by a sniper on a killing spree. During the time she was thought to be dead, she journeyed through the crack between two worlds, bringing back perceptions of the mysterious realms of dreams. In this book she calls upon her Cherokee Indian heritage and her 17 years as an alternative practitioner to present information on the subject.

This book is an introduction to the Soul, and to the Spirit. Our soul and spirit combine in our physical bodies to make us who we are. This is a book about living but when we talk about the soul and our spirit there also needs to be a conversation around what they mean at the time of our death. Some of this book refers to an ancient Tibetan book written in 8th century, The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Before the 8th century information in it was an oral tradition passed down by shaman and from which its heritage stems. But its tradition and information go much further back and is based on prehistoric shamanic intelligence. The ancient knowledge became part of the Bon religion which is still practiced today. When Buddhism entered Tibet, Bon, and the Tibetan Book of the Dead became part of Buddhist discipline helping to make Tibetan Buddhism unique.In the Tibetan world view, there is no destructive death at the end of life as is in the west. Instead, there is reincarnation, rebirth, and transition into a new life. What we do in this life, the good and bad deeds, or Karma influence the rebirth of our soul and how it will continue to seek enlightenment.According to Tibetan tradition, after death and before one's next birth, when one's consciousness or soul is not connected to a physical body it passes through a number of different states. Some are similar to those reported by people who have had a Near-Death Experience. Soon after the Buddha's passing it was recognised that we experience different states of existence each day of our lives as well as after we die. These intermediate, transitional, or liminal states are called Bardos. Our waking life is a Bardo state, our dreaming at night is a Bardo state, if / when we meditate, that is another Bardo state.This book is part of The Practical Shaman series, which includes broad introductions to shamans and shamanism and concentrates on the Soul, and the Spirit, together with the beliefs and rituals that surround both and why they differ.The Reiki, Shamanism and the essential loving mysticism is complementary to our: -YouTube video series, "Reiki with Candice, Mark and Opame", -"The Shaman Podcast" on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, Tunine, Deezer and more.

Anyone who has read more than a few books on Tibetan Buddhism will have encountered references to the Six Yogas of Naropa, a preeminent yogic technology system. The six practices - inner heat, illusory body, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection, and bardo yoga - gradually came to pervade thousands of monasteries, nunneries, and hermitages throughout Central Asia over the past five and a half centuries. Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a prolific writer and one of Tibet's greatest yogis and philosophers. His discussion of the Six Yogas is regarded as one of the finest on the subject to come out of Tibet. Glenn H. Mullin's study of the history, substance, and philosophical legacy of the Six Yogas of Naropa, together with his translation of Tsongkhapa's treatise, provides a guide to this tradition.
