The Lucid Dreaming Online Course

What is the Lucid Dreaming Course?

The Lucid Dreaming course is a 16-week exploration into the science and practice of remaining consciously aware during the experience of dreams.

Every night, we “disappear” into extraordinary realms, experience impossible things, have very profound realisations, all within the seemingly limitless borders of our dreams. Yet every morning we wake up as if nothing happened. We all live countless double lives in our dreams, lives of endless possibilities, but due to the fragmented nature of our consciousness we can neither remember much nor enjoy our dreams in full awareness.

Dreams are not waste-products of our sub-consciousness. They are portals to extraordinary dimensions of ourselves and of Existence which otherwise remain unknown and inaccessible to us, in other states of consciousness. Our dreams contain extraordinary messages and we can achieve great transformations if only we’d know how to lucidly experience them.

Many ancient systems have developed systematic methods that allow us to enter dreams fully consciously, with the purpose of using them as extraordinary spiritual tools. Nowadays, dreams are one of the few meeting points between science and spirituality. Recent research proves that lucid dreaming is a reality that can be accessed at will, given that we train ourselves with perseverance.

In this course we’ll present structured methods that will allow us to start dreaming lucidly and to extend our awareness into our dream experiences. We’ll explore the science of dreams (REM sleep, brain waves, etc), we’ll learn easy mind-tricks that will help us become lucid while dreaming, and methods to extend our dreams without waking up when becoming lucid. Besides lectures and theoretical explanations, each session will also include a practical part, during which we’ll be doing yoga postures that specifically favour such deep experiences, together with meditations that will generate inner attitudes supportive of lucid dreaming.

What will I learn in the Lucid Dreaming Course?

The course will begin with the theory of lucid dreaming – why and how people can experience this in the first place. Gradually we’ll start learning various methods that allow us to become lucid during our dreams. We’ll then continue with gaining more understanding of how our mind works, especially during sleep, and how certain types of conscious experiences that we have during the waking state can build solid a foundation for lucid dreaming. Various methods for enhancing dream lucidity will be presented – both ancient and new, together with specific Hatha Yoga practices. In the last classes of the course we’ll open into the broader aspects of astral projection, and learn how we can begin having such experiences at will.

Each class will contain live parts – that will allow you to ask questions and also be corrected in your practice – as well as pre-recorded materials – mainly the lectures and theoretical explanations. As a part of each class, students also receive a clear homework which imply practically applying the methods we’ve learnt in the class.
