Warrior Sleep

Questions from TACFIT Warriors!

Q: What is the scientific proof that the "Warrior Sleep" program provides rest more efficient than sleep?

A: the "Warrior Sleep" program is based, in large part, on the "Yoga Nidra" technique, considered to be one of the highest yogic practices. Thousands of years old, it is traditionally considered to be equivalent to three or four times its quantity of sleep. While I know of no specific scientific tests verifying this assertion, what CAN be said is that the deepest ordinary sleep state is Delta, dreaming sleep, when both psychological and physical tensions are discharged maximally. We wobble in and out of Delta--probably an atavistic protective mechanism left over from a time our ancestors needed to check the environment for nocturnal predators.

As you practice "Warrior Sleep" you are literally training your mind to discharge these tensions more effectively. My personal experience verifies that you can reach a point where your body is asleep, while your mind is awake--a truly amazing experience, and peaceful beyond belief. What lies beyond that? I've yet to discover. Exploration suggests that a 20-30 minute session of Warrior Sleep can DEFINITELY compensate for a night's short sleep. Advanced practitioners are said to use this technique to cut their sleep needs to less than three hours a night. While this has not been my personal experience, it seems within the realm of possibility.

What I can say, with total confidence, is that whether you call it "Warrior Sleep" or "Yoga Nidra", this is one of those secrets everyone should know. Everyone deserves a great night's sleep, every night.

For what it's worth, I had the idea that most dreaming takes place in REM sleep, one of the more shallow stages of sleep, not the delta stages of sleep, which are deeper. (I just double-checked in a sleep book I had laying around - insomnia - and it seems to support that.)

Great stuff Steven. I have re-posted your links on my Helping Hands Network so all our fans are reading about your life's efforts. It is like I am looking into my future when I read about your accomplishments. I am 33 and writing to publish my first series of books in 2011 and live the yogi life. I use several of your accomplishments for comparison on my objective/goal lists.

Some guy--
You are correct, I was wrong. While Delta is a deep restorative state, most dreaming in REM is a shallower state than Delta.
