The Practices of Lucid Dreaming with Michael Katz
"If you are aware in the dream, you can experience many things within the dream state. It is easier to develop your (spiritual) practices in a dream than in the daytime. In the daytime we are limited by our material body, but in a dream our function of mind and our consciousness of the senses are unhindered. We can have more clarity." Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light
People have been fascinated with the subject of dreams and dreaming since time immemorial. Dreams of clarity which may increase through techniques of Dream Yoga, also referred to as Yoga Nidra in some traditions, have been known to foretell the future, solve seemingly unsolvable problems, and give us insight into our own personality. Lucid dreams refer to those dreams during which people both have awareness that they are dreaming and yet are still asleep.
In physical yoga we must develop ourselves over time. When practicing physical yoga in the beginning we start with less advanced exercises and slowly learn to control our body. In the same way, in Dream Yoga: Practices of Lucid Dreaming we may first focus on learning to remember our dreams with greater frequency and also to have some insight into their meaning. After we have some success in remembering our dreams we can focus on having lucid dreams experience.
During the course we will learn the techniques that will enable us to practice Dream Yoga by yourself each night, including two inductions for lucid dreaming.
