Using lucid dreaming to for Jhana training

Dear Andrew,

I recently read ‘Practicing the Jhanas’ by Stephen Snyder and Tina Rasmussen. On a two month retreat with Pa-Auk Sayadaw they were able to move through all eight Jhanas. Do you have any thoughts about how dream yoga could be used to enable one to more easily enter the Jhanas in waking life meditation? I have heard Clare Johnson talk about her experiences with lucid dreams where she says “please take me to the lucid light” and then her experience sounds akin to the experiences in the book where her surroundings/body/sense of self dissolve and she has a non-dual experience in a sea of light.

Thank you so much.


What are the Jhanas?

I think i have briefly heard them mentioned in a video by Andrew before, but there was no explanation.

If you have any links that gives an explanation on them, I would be very interested in learning more about them.

Thank you
