In this immersive lucid dreaming retreat Charlie Morley shows us how to transform one third of our life by dreaming lucidly, sleeping consciously and training our minds to be “more awake, more aware, and more kind”.
This retreat offers a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming with the core aims of psychological growth and nocturnal spiritual practice.
Open to complete beginners (as well as seasoned lucid dreamers) the retreat will include everything you need to learn how to lucid dream and to wake up to your fullest potential. We will combine a 12-hour daily schedule with optional night-time practices which help us move into the possibility of 24-hour mindfulness.
The retreat includes teachings on the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Western and Tibetan Buddhist dream traditions, instructions on how to maintain awareness into sleep, recognition of the dreamlike nature of the reality and of course plenty of practical teachings on learning “how to lucid dream”.
Charlie’s teaching style is highly practical: using music, movement and interactive exercises to help deepen the learning experience.
- Guided lucid dream sessions throughout the night
- Tibetan Dream Yoga practices
- Guided meditation sessions.
- Lucid dreaming psychodrama exercises
- Periods of silence and reflection
- Daily dream sharing circles
On all residential retreats participants have the opportunity to engage in group dreaming sessions throughout the night in which Charlie guides the group into each dream period.
How do these night-time practices work exactly? Participants have the option to spend the second half of the night sleeping in the workshop space where Charlie will guide them into several sessions of lucid dream practice. The night-time wake ups are totally optional though so if you would prefer to stay in your room then that is absolutely fine.
What to bring if you intend to do the optional sleepover sessions:
- A camping mattress/roll matt
- A sleeping bag/blanket.
- Extra pillow if you need one
- Enthusiasm and a sense of humour!
