Seven Octaves of Enlightenment:
Integral Deep Listening Pranayama
by Joseph Dillard
“IDL” stands for “Integral Deep Listening.”
IDL is a type of dream yoga that notes the dreamlike nature of life and emphasizes lucidity in whatever state of consciousness you happen to be in at the moment....
The degree of wakefulness of your ordinary, everyday mind determines the clarity of your consciousness in all other states, including hypnotic, shamanic, mystical, near death experiences, and life after death.
