Finding yourself wide awake after a few hours of sleep, or waking often during the night is called “parasomnia” or “sleep maintenance insomnia,” and it’s much more common than people think. A 2005 National Sleep Foundation poll found that 75 percent of adults frequently have symptoms of a sleep problem, including waking during the night.     Read More

Golden Slumbers, Falling in Love with Sleep 

Our main problem with sleep stems from our definition of it. Most of us don’t get sleep because we don’t ‘get’ sleep. This is not just a philosophical statement, I believe that Western culture at large – including the sleep science and biomedicine community – really has a distorted, limited, biased and dysfunctional set of beliefs of what sleep is, and there lies the main problem. Read More

#256: Mindful Sleep, Mindful Dreams

David Van Nuys Ph.D. aka “Dr. Dave” interviews Rubin Naiman, Ph.D.

Our definitions of sleep and waking in fact dreaming and waking are artificial. I find when you look more closely at this and this is the basis of a theory I’ve been evolving and developing for about 20 years. I’ve come to believe that sleeping and dreaming and waking which most of us would agree are the three primary forms of consciousness, that they are always present. In other words, and this is going to sound a little silly, I believe that we are always to varying degrees, asleep, awake and dreaming. Listen Here
