During this transformational 10 day retreat you will learn how to lucid dream and will deepen your understanding of the dream state and the nature of perceived reality. The ancient traditions of dream yoga and the modern scientific research, techniques, and technologies of lucid dream practice will be introduced in a powerful and practical way.
This experiential retreat will be lead by Michael Gregory. Michael is a former Buddhist Monk and Director of Mindfulness Meditation Centers and a leading teacher in the field. The book that will be used in this retreat is by leading expert in Lucid Dreaming, Stephen LaBerge, Phd.
The Art and Science Lucid Dreaming is that of awakening in a dream within a dream. Once you have cultivated the art of lucid dreaming — the exceptional, potentially liberating state of consciousness in which you know you are dreaming is awakened. That knowledge transforms the mundane world into the extraordinary, and dreams into a vehicle for the exploration of very nature of reality.
Building upon ancient teachings, recent scientific research has developed new techniques and technology making lucid dreaming more accessible than ever before.
In this retreat, you will learn how to intentionally create your experience of reality. To utilize the power of lucidity and guide your dreams with wisdom using them for personal transformation and spiritual awakening.
Topics in this Retreat Include:
????The Science of Lucid Dreaming
???? How perceived reality and the phenomenal world are considered to be ultimately “unreal” – an “illusion”
???? The Buddhist philosophy of the similarity and non dual nature of the dream that is life and regular nightly dreams
