LEARN HOW TO LUCID DREAM (2 hour Workshop)
By using the best of both Tibetan Buddhist and Western dream-work techniques Charlie’s workshops offer a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming and conscious sleeping with the aims of psychological growth and self-discovery.
The workshops include an overview of the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Western psychological and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, teachings on “learning how to lucid dream” and instructions on how to engage the wider holistic benefits of lucid dreaming and conscious sleeping which these practices offer.
What will we learn at the workshop?
• How to lucid dream from scratch and/or develop your practice!
• The benefits of lucid dreaming.
• How to use lucid dreaming to heal nightmares.
• Using sleep for spiritual practice.
• Practical exercises proven to help induce lucid dreams.
The aims of all the workshops are not just about being aware within your dreams and tapping into the wellspring of wisdom that resides in the dreaming mind, but also about how to wake up to life and to live lucidly with joy and confidence!
All ages and abilities are welcome!
