By focusing in a prescribed manner (detailed in the book) and practicing, you will begin to develop “the natural light”, the space of consciousness we normally miss. This experience of consciousness exists between the time that we drift off to sleep and the time our dreaming starts.

Doing this greatly enhances the clarity of your dreaming, and the recollection of your dreams is improved too.

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu began to give Dzogchen instruction in the West, first in Italy, then in numerous other countries. He quickly became a respected spiritual authority among many practitioners, and has created centers for the study of Dzogchen around the world.
