Format: Paperback
A long time ago I took a graduate course/workshop (in Systems Science) that both instructed us on the various techniques in this book, and used our new-found skills to do experiments in using our inner mind capabilities to analyze and solve problems (not personal ones - real-world systems problems) and gain new insights. The overall question might be, "Can these altered states of consciousness be used in a directed way to provide different perspectives on systems problems?" One of the experiments involved presenting us with the then-new idea of what we now call ATMs and letting us meditate on them, then recording our reactions.

The methods I learned from this book and in the workshop have stood with me for years, to some extent. For a long time I was able to direct my dreams quite easily, changing the plot or the action - we were able to recognize that what happens in a dream is completely under our control, it's our world and the physics in that world can be changed. I was also able to put myself into various meditative states quite easily, using the methods taught in this book. And I was able to manage my sleep time, able to put myself to sleep for any time period from a few minutes to 10 hours - although if I was already sleep deprived it didn't work so well! So I could take a timed nap of three or four minute between classes, and wake up refreshed.

It was also a fun process. I think that, as the book recommends, it would be best, easier and more enjoyable to do this as part of a group.

I would say that some of the techniques are closely related to self-hypnosis, and so there is room for some caution in allowing yourself to get too carried away. Using almost any effective mind management methods, it is possible to 'think yourself into a state' - to take things too far, too fast, with insufficient guidance. All things in moderation.
