Tashi Deleg!,
       I am about halfway through Astral Dynamics, having read RB's online tutorials, and I find myself with some questions:
1. I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (My sinuses close when I am lying down and relaxed (ie sleeping), this prevents me from sleeping normally.  To remedy this, I have a CPAP (Continuous Postive Airway pressure, pumps about 10 P.S.I up my nose to keep the passages open), and sleep normally.  The question is, using Hemi-Sync or doing any kind of lying down relaxation or trance work results in the closure of my nasal passages (snoring and inability to breathe), which is, to say the least, distracting.  I have tried wearing the CPAP during this work, but the whoosh of the air interferes with the tones used in Hemi Sync, and without some kind of sound elicits a conditioned response of falling asleep.  Am leaning towards shamanic study (a really long story, that), and have ordered a recording of drumming to try to overcome the machine noise.

Any ideas?
I have reviewed some ideas of trying to be sitting up (I used to spontaneously project during long meditation sessions, not realizing it (would suddenly see the back of the shrine room, or face another direction, be much closer to the shrine, or sometimes the room would change entirely (usually fields of swirling, colored mist).  All of these, of course, came as mysteries to most folks in the Sangha (at best, others thought it was great distraction), but not sure.

Has anyone had much success with the memory conditioning in Wave I?  I have not used it for long, but have not seen much result in that arena...
