As an alternative, I would suggest doing some reading first on the subjects of Yogic Dreaming and Yogic Sleep. Some good suggestions could be: Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Dreaming Yourself Awake: Lucid Dreaming and Tibetan Dream Yoga for Insight and Transformation
by B. Alan Wallace and Brian Hodel and lastly and perhaps containing the most insight into both practices, The Tibetan Yogas Of Dream And Sleep
by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Mark Dahlby. I found just the information on Karma alone to be worth the price of this last book.
It seems to me that we all appear to have different tastes in the way we like to be taught, and more than one book might be helpful in developing a well rounded understanding of these techniques.
After reading a book or two on the subject, consider following up your reading with the CD, Meditation and Yoga Nidra (Relaxation and Stress Reduction, Healing and Rejuvenation) by Dr Swami Shankardev Saraswati, and learn to do the 61 points by memory so it becomes an effortless practice. Good luck and best wishes to anyone on such a spiritual path.

You may find that you need considerably less "normal" sleep if you do this regularly. The yoga nidra effect is very restful despite the fact that you're totally conscious through it. One minor complaint is that, although the entire experience is nearly an hour long, you're only actually in the deep end for about ten minutes. I wish they'd made the period of silence one separate track, so you could double or triple it for longer sessions. Otherwise, I can't imagine a more excellent and effective product.
Some are complaining about the reading off of body parts. This is called the "61 Point" exercise and is a standard practice in this form of yoga. It's so you can apply your attention to the various parts of your body as you're progressively relaxing. Others are complaining about the wake up instructions at the end. You wouldn't want to stay in this state indefinitely. If you are totally jarred awake, it means you never entered the true yoga nidra phase to begin with. It's an easy enough matter just to go back to sleep after you're done with the session.
If you're interested in researching this subject further, be sure to search out these books: Enlightenment without God by Rama and Yoga Nidra by Saraswati.
