Conscious Sleep Meditation is a therapy that purifies the soul, causing an altered state of mind that borders between wakefulness and unconscious reverie. It is known in modern psychology as a hypnagogic state in which emotional blockages and physical pain can be perceived and healed. It calms the nervous system and stimulates the production of endorphins. It also lowers cortisol and other immunosuppressive hormones. One hour of practice equals four hours of restorative sleep.
