Waking, Dreaming, Being: Self and Consciousness in Neuroscience, Meditation, and Philosophy will be published as a trade book by Columbia University Press on October 10, 2014. Using Indian philosophy, phenomenology, and the neuroscience of consciousness and meditation, I investigate how our consciousness and sense of self shift across waking perception, mind wandering and daydreaming, meditative states, falling asleep, dreaming, lucid dreaming, deep sleep, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, and dying. Chapter 9, “Dying: What Happens When We Die,” will be published as a separate short ebook in June 2014. Stay tuned for more details.
