Lucid dreaming weekend workshop - with Charlie Morley
WhoTeacher: Charlie Morley
Anyone is welcome to attend this event!
This workshop will teach you how to become conscious within your dreams and make use of the third of your life that you spend sleeping to be “more awake, more aware and more kind!”
By using the best of both Tibetan Buddhist and Western dream-work techniques Charlie’s workshops offer a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming with the core aims of psychological growth and nocturnal spiritual practice.
The workshop includes an overview of the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Western psychological and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, exploration of how sleep works and of course plenty of techniques for becoming lucid within your dreams.
Lucid dreaming 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.
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 integrate nightmares.
- How to heal our inner world while we sleep.
- Using sleep for spiritual practice.
The aim of this workshop is not just to learn how to lucid dream but also how to tap into the wellspring of wisdom that resides in the dreaming mind.
Lucid dreaming can help us to wake up to life and to live lucidly with joy and confidence, so come and learn how! All ages and abilities are welcome.
Charlie Morley is a bestselling author and teacher of lucid dreaming & shadow integration.
He has been lucid dreaming for 20 years and was “authorised to teach” within the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism by Lama Yeshe Rinpoche in 2008. He has since developed a holistic approach to dream work called Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep and written three books which have been translated into 14 languages.
For over 10 years Charlie has run workshops & retreats in more than 20 countries and continues to teach internationally. He’s spoken at Cambridge University, the Ministry of Defence Mindfulness Symposium, The Houses of Parliament and given the first ever TED talk about lucid dreaming.
In 2018 he was awarded a Churchill Fellowship grant to research “Mindfulness Based PTSD Treatment in Veterans” and continues to teach sleep & dream practices to armed forces veterans and civilians with Stress or Trauma Affected Sleep Patterns.
He formally became a Buddhist at the age of 19 and lived at the Kagyu Samye Dzong London Buddhist Centre for 7 years.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
