Lucid Dreaming as a Path to Personal Growth, Healing and Spiritual Wisdom
Fri 2 June 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
In this introductory workshop you will discover how lucid dreamers use this special state to overcome fears, resolve inner blockages, promote physical healing and move towards a fuller life.
On the surface, lucid dreaming seems deceptively simple – a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. There, you can fly through space, create fire breathing dragons, and cast spells like Harry Potter, all in the safety of your subconscious mind
Historically though, experienced lucid dreamers have used lucid dreaming as an expressway to greater self-realization, spiritual wisdom and access to creativity’s source. The Indian Buddhist yogi, Naropa, suggested that the main technique of dream yoga, lucid dreaming, provided serious students one of the six pathways to enlightenment.
Scientifically validated for more than thirty years, recent neuroscientists have deemed lucid dreaming a “hybrid state of consciousness” since the dreaming brain and portions of the waking/conscious brain show simultaneous activation. In other words, when you are lucid dreaming, your conscious mind and your subconscious mind appear joined in a shared creative collaboration, or a unique, hybrid state of consciousness.
