Integral Deep Listening: Accessing Your Inner Compass

By Joseph Dillard

Would you like to be able to interpret any dream that you have? Would you like to understand not only why you have nightmares but how to make them go away forever? Would you like to understand why your life is sometimes like a bad dream and how to change soap opera and nightmarish life events into something useful and meaningful? Would you like to learn how to find and follow your inner compass? Would you like to discover what sickness, adversity, and accidents have to teach you? Would you like to learn a powerful method of prevention to head off physical and emotional stress before they show up as problems in your waking life? Integral Deep Listening is a dream yoga, or yoga of wakefulness. It is about learning how to wake up out of delusion and misery in your life. Rather than focusing on lucid dreaming, as most dream yogas do, Integral Deep Listening emphasizes lucid living, which is to wake up out of your waking delusions. When you do so you bring a broader, more transformative consciousness to both your waking and night-time dreams.

Waking Up
By Joseph Dillard

You may know how to wake up; do you know how to stay awake? Most people who have mystical experiences quickly fall back asleep into the waking dreams of routine, habit, and culture. Integral Deep Listening is a dream yoga not of lucid dreaming but of lucid living, of waking up out of your life script, the Drama Triangle, and your cognitive distortions by finding and following your own inner compass. In the process you will learn to interpret any dream, end any nightmare, and access practical, powerful tools that you will not outgrow.

You will learn how to access your own amazing inner potentials in the form of your dream characters and the personifications of oyour life issues. They will teach you how to use your breath to turn your life into a meditation to awaken into fearless confidence, a life of service and compassion, balance and wisdom, detachment and acceptance, freedom and inner peace, clarity and witnessing, whether awake or dreaming.

Transcending Your Monkey Mind: The Five Trees and Meditation
By Joseph Dillard

It’s easy to focus on the forest and not see the trees of meditation. In this case, following the Buddhist concept of skandhas, there are five of them: the trees of thought, feelings, images, sensations, and states. Together, they constitute the entirety of your identity and experience. This little book is not your typical how-to guide to meditation. It does not provide practical instruction about how to sit or where to look when you meditate, and it does not require that you believe in anything or follow any particular spiritual practice. Transcending Your Monkey Mind offers a deeper understanding of what happens in your mind when you meditate. You can learn to transcend both mind and self without needing to subscribe to any particular type of meditation. By using the tools offered in this book, you can be more successful in meditation no matter what approach you use.

Deep Listening to Near Death Experiences
By Joseph Dillard

Have you ever had a near-death experience? If you have, would you like to increase its usefulness for you today and for the rest of your life? If you have not, have you ever had another type of mystical experience, such as a sense of oneness with nature, with others, or with life itself in such a way that you were filled with awe, compassion, and deep inner peace? The transpersonal method explored in this book is called Integral Deep Listening, and it can provide you with graduated, progressive openings into the mystical. It is designed to help you access and become six core aspects of waking up, enlightenment and the sacred dimension of life itself: fearless confidence, compassion, wisdom, acceptance, inner peace, and witnessing.

Integral Deep Listening (IDL) is much more than a self-help tool. Each time you do an interview, you let go of your present, limited perspective on your life. You access and become qualities that are attributes of freedom, enlightenment, and genuine mystical experience. These qualities are personified by the characters in your dreams and your daily life issues. When you learn to practice integral deep listening you learn to access your emerging potentials to find and follow your inner compass.

Words and Concepts that Are and Are Not Conducive to Enlightenment

Understanding Principles Fundamental to Integral Deep Listening

Authored by Joseph Dillard

Could it possibly be that something as important as spirituality does not support your enlightenment? Could spiritual concepts such as soul, self, God, karma, reincarnation, positive thinking or love be blocking you from the enlightenment you seek? “Words and Concepts that Are and Are Not Conducive to Enlightenment” has something to challenge or irritate everyone. There are very few sacred cows here that are not sent to the slaughterhouse and ground into Happy Meals. Far from being an exercise in malicious torment of devout seekers, its intent is to help you examine your own assumptions so you can get out of your own way. What beliefs have you outgrown and are now blocking your growth? What assumptions do you want to keep, after having examined them closely to find out if they still do indeed support your enlightenment? Integral Deep Listening shows that enlightenment is a never-ending process of waking up. Be prepared to be surprised as you deepen your understanding of what it means to become awake, clear, lucid and enlightened.
