Healing Night

The Science and Spirit of Sleeping, Dreaming, and Awakening

by Rubin R. Naiman, PhD

An innovative vision of the role of night in human health and spirituality, by the sleep and dream specialist for Dr. Andrew Weil’s Program in Integrative Medicine.

In Healing Night, clinical psychologist Rubin R. Naiman explores sleeping, dreaming, and awakening, going far beyond the science of sleep medicine to reflect on what he believes is the profoundly spiritual nature of night consciousness. Naiman reveals how the erosion of night by artificial light and the devaluation of sleep and dreaming have led to an epidemic of sleep disorders and consequent days of chronically dazed waking consciousness. Drawing on both clinical experience and personal explorations, Naiman offers a fresh look at sleep and dreams, and provides alternative healing practices for sleep disturbances. Moreover, he challenges us to acknowledge our spiritual night blindness and embrace the sacredness of night.

The Yoga of Sleep

by Rubin R. Naiman, PhD

Dr. Andrew Weil has called his colleague Dr. Rubin Naiman a true pioneer in integrative sleep and dream medicine. Dr. Naiman has given us a new understanding of human consciousness that weaves sleep, dreams, and waking into a unified whole.

On The Yoga of Sleep, he bridges modern science with the world’s wisdom traditions to present a two-CD program on the untapped potential of sleep and dreams — not only for health and wellness, but also for higher awareness and spiritual realization. It features five guided practices based on Dr. Naiman’s unique approach to sleep: Your Personal Bedtime Stories, A Mindful Surrender to Sleep, The Sacred Art of Awakening, and more.

Healthy Sleep

by Andrew Weil, MD and Rubin R. Naiman, PhD

On a double CD audio book, two mind-body experts present an innovative sleep-health program for body, mind, and spirit that features:

  • Dr. Weil’s medically proven lifestyle recommendations and breathing exercises to help decrease stress and promote relaxation
  • Dr. Naiman’s most effective strategies for managing common sleep disorders, such as insomnia and sleep apnea. “Good sleep is not just about the number of hours one spends in bed,” according to Dr. Weil and Dr. Naiman. “It must also reflect the depth and quality of that sleep.” Acclaimed physician Andrew Weil joins sleep expert Rubin Naiman to teach natural lifestyle approaches and practical exercises to attain healthy sleep.

Healing Sleep and Dreams

by Rubin R. Naiman, PhD
Dr. Naiman has a special interest in the role of sleep and dreams in addictions and recovery. Acute and chronic sleep problems are common among people with addictions, frequently exacerbating symptoms and further complicating treatment. Unfortunately, addiction recovery programs are not well-informed about effective sleep interventions. Sleep and dream disorders should be approached as comorbid states in the treatment of all addiction.
