Course Description

We sleep for a third of our lives. Have you ever wondered how you might make better use of that time? HayHouse author and co-creator of “Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep” Charlie Morley shows us how to utilise that 30year blackout to dream lucidly, sleep deeply and to train our minds to engage meditation, all while we’ are sound asleep.

By using the best of both Tibetan Buddhist and Western lucid dreaming techniques Mindfulness of Dreamand Sleep offers a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming with the aims of psychological growth,friendship with our psyches and nocturnal spiritual practice!

Since early 2013 Charlie’s teaching style has evolved into a more practical and interactive form than everbefore with the addition of music, mindful movement and interactive exercises which all serve to deepen thelearning experience. On the “sleep over” residential retreats participants even have the opportunity to engage inoptional group dreaming sessions throughout the night in which Charlie guides the group into each dreamperiod with a specific technique.

All retreats include an overview of the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Westernpsychological and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, instructions on how to maintain awareness into and out ofsleep, recognition of illusion and of course plenty of teachings on learning “how to lucid dream”. Luciddreaming is an important precursory skill to the Tibetan tradition of Dream Yoga and these teachings offer a practical way to learn this incredibly beneficial skill.
The Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep approach teaches us not only how to lucid dream within the context of psycho-spiritual growth, but also how to practice mindfulness mediation, increase our everyday awareness and learn how to work with our dreaming mind to reach our fullest potential.
