Waking Up to the Dark: Ancient Wisdom for a Sleepless Age

We rated this book:


Waking Up to the Dark: Ancient Wisdom for a Sleepless Age centers on an intense spiritual theory. There is an hour of darkness that most of us sleep through, leaving us lost and misinformed about what can be found when we remove the light and embrace the dark. Not to be confused as a religious book, Clark Strand’s explanation of what our nights are missing comes straight from his midnight journaling. While I am impressed initially with Strand, his writings quickly wander into the realm of apparitional science fiction. Understanding that there is an audience for Strand’s message, I find that I may not be included. Unfortunately, the format of his book leaves me in the dark, perhaps this realization is exactly what Strand is hoping for. However, I am left scanning the last few pages, grasping for quality in all of the content. I would forewarn those without a strong devotion, to tread lightly throughout the long chapters, and, as hoped for by Strand, I will be more mindful of the hour of darkness awaiting me each night I slumber.
