Dream Yoga for Death and Trancendence
The crossing of dimensions which takes place each time we fall asleep, is the model of transition which takes place at the moment of dying. Each time we go to sleep, a monumental portal of opportunity opens before us.
The simple practices that can be done at the moment of falling asleep are learned in the branch of energy work known as the ‘dream yogas’.
All the complete systems for fully developing human potential are designed for transcendence, taking into account the continuity of consciousness experienced during sleep, dream and the intermediate state of death.
To develop a personal program of practices in which there is no training in crossing dimensions and no provision made for transcendence, seriously limits energy practices to short-term benefits. This shortcoming manifests at the moment of dying, when the clarity of consciousness intensifies, as profound regret, emotional chaos and mental confusion.
In this retreat we are going to develop a coherent practice for crossing dimensions, in which we train progressively in maintaining continuity of conscience, recognition of the stages of dissolution of the elements at the moment of falling asleep and the Witness mind which does not react with attachment or rejection to the projections of the mind, in dreams or the experience of death.
This workshop is a complement to the class on Death and Transcendence in which we combine and deepen our meditative experience with the dream yogas.
For those who are already familiar with the introductory level of the dream yogas, this retreat is an opportunity for refining and focus the experience of sleep and dream in the specific direction of death and transcendence.
