Dream and Sleep Yogas: Teachings from the Bön Mother Tantra

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

June 1–4, 2018

Tuition $195 + 3 nights

We sleep one-third of our lifetime, an average of twenty to twenty-five years. Centuries ago, Tibetan yogis developed spiritual practices that use dream and sleep as a spiritual path. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach us about the relationships between dream and waking, and guide us in the clear-light sleep practices of the Mother Tantra, one of the most important cycles of teachings in the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition. Dream Yoga is a practice that spans every moment, waking and sleeping and Sleep Yoga helps us to integrate all moments — waking, sleeping, meditation, and even death — with the clear light of awareness. Through these practices, we are able to open the door to the luminous, open awareness that is the true nature of the mind.
