The study of dreams in Tibetan culture is very ancient. Dreams can be analysed in different ways: for religious purposes, for divination, or for medical purposes. Tibetan doctors have a well-developed understanding of the relationship between dreams and health; thus dreams are analysed from both a religious as well as a medical perspective. Both the Tantric spiritual tradition and Traditional Tibetan Medicine describe three basic components - Consciousness, the subtle rLung energies, and the chakras and channels – as being necessary for the manifestation of dreams.
Traditionally, Dream studies include practices to purify and strengthen the chakras and channels, practices for lucid dreaming, as well as dream analysis.
Level one presents a fascinating and intensive immersion in Tibetan Dream studies. Practical and theoretical components are well-balanced to give a comprehensive coverage of this vast subject.
This 7-day course expands upon the knowledge and techniques developed in Dream Studies Level 1, allowing students to deepen their practical skills. The focus will be two-fold: Psychology in Traditional Tibetan Medicine, and Dream Work.
Dream Work focuses on the actual practice of Dreaming - utilising dreams to cure blockages of energy and mind. Students will be taught how to make use of a mantra in order to focus their energies whilst in the dream-state, to enable lucid dreaming and to facilitate prophetic dreams. Dream Work also addresses the origin of nightmares and how to treat their occurrence.
