Description About the author Contents
Retreats in darkness have been used by all the great spiritual traditions for thousands of years as a method for tapping deep clarity, accessing sacred wisdom, connecting with the Divine, and training to transform the mind/body system into a manifestation of wisdom. In dark retreat, the practitioner lives in complete darkness - eating, sleeping, meditating, and simply existing in a world without external light.
Traditionally, in Tibet, dark retreats were performed by monks as part of their training with the support of their monastery and their fellow monks. But dark retreats are of value to people from all walks of life, from the monastic to the busy householder - those with jobs, families, and all-too-many responsibilities. Martin Lowenthal has taken a practice little-known in the West and made it accessible by incorporating methods based in western psychology with traditional Tibetan Buddhism.

2 of 5 The dark retreats are wonderful January 13, 2006
Reviewer: aghori from Finland  
I have read this, but it did not give me much inspiration actually when reading this book one can get wrong picture of dark retreats.
It might be interesting to read but one should not take it seriously.
