This is an intensive weekend form of course 3 taught in retreat setting. The course provides instructions on how to transform the ordinary dream state into spiritual practice. It starts with practices focusing on the illusory nature of some perceptions and beliefs about ourselves and the world. In the next step, the course discusses ways to become lucid in dreams. It teaches how to use lucid dreaming to deepen our daytime meditation practice and come closer to realizing the ultimate nature of reality. Nigh time dream yoga is closely connected with daytime practices calming the mind and exploring deeper aspects of our consciousness.
Saturday will be spent both in practice and study more extensive instructions will be provided. Sunday is intended as a focused retreat day, spent mostly in intensive meditation and yoga practice. We recommend students to wear comfortable clothing. Please bring mats and cushions.
This is the third course in the sequence of seven courses of the Tibetan Yoga Centre curriculum. Because this course builds on the foundation of previous two classes, it is highly recommended that students new to Tibetan Yoga practice also revise meditations and basic Tibetan yoga postures taught in the first course.
