If you’re only meditating and practicing yoga during the day, you’re missing out on a lot! Learn about “the nocturnal practices”: lucid dreaming, dream yoga, sleep yoga and the darkness of the night, with special guest expert Andrew Holecek. We cover step-by-step how you can incorporate lucid dreaming into your spiritual practice (and why you might want to). Discover where dreams come from, how to interpret them, and how creating your own “temple of sleep” can create more awareness and happiness in your waking, daily life. We also touch on Tantra, sleep as preparation for death, and super-practical tips on getting the best night’s sleep you can.   

 

Andrew Holecek has completed the traditional three-year Buddhist meditation retreat and offers seminars internationally on meditation, dream yoga, and the art of conscious dying. He is the author of The Power and the Pain; Preparing to Die; Meditation in the iGeneration, and his latest book Dream Yoga; Illuminating Your Life Through Lucid Dreaming and the Tibetan Yogas of Sleep. Andrew holds degrees in classical music, biology, and a doctorate in dental surgery. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.

What are archetypes and how do they relate to the chakra system? How do we choose to personally define words like “the soul” and “the ego?” In this deep conversation with master designer and chakra expert, Erica Jago, we explore the concepts of spiritual identity, chakra clearing, and how to step away from our demons and embrace our inner light.
