Summer Retreat on Dream Yoga and Sleep Yoga Online June 20–July 3

Dream Yoga and Sleep Yoga are profound teachings from the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition to support the realization of one’s true nature. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach on these topics during this year’s summer retreat, offered online via Zoom. Dream Yoga will be offered June 20–26 and Sleep Yoga will be held June 27–July 3.

All are welcome to join us for one or both weeks of these retreats, sponsored by Serenity Ridge Retreat Center and supported by Ligmincha International. A discounted rate is available if you register for both weeks.

In addition, Rinpoche will offer the reading transmission (lung) for both Dream and Sleep Yoga. Dream Yoga transmission will be given during Dream Yoga week one and Sleep Yoga transmission will be given during the Sleep Yoga week two.

Live simultaneous translation in French, Spanish, Polish, Russian, German and Portuguese. Additional languages will be announced as they are added.

Dream Yoga
June 20–26, 2021

In addition to the restorative benefits of a good night’s sleep, Tibetan yogis have practiced dream yoga for centuries to turn these hours into a time for spiritual awakening. Unlike psychological or “lucid dreaming” approaches that have become popular in the West, the ultimate goal of Tibetan dream yoga is enlightenment: to recognize the nature of mind that pervades all experience—whether dreaming or awake—and supports the emergence of wisdom and compassion.

During this retreat, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will explore the relationship between dreaming and waking states, and between dream and the bardo states after death. We will learn how to prepare for sleep, the types of dreams that can arise and how to bring lucidity into our dreams.

Sleep Yoga
June 27–July 3, 2021

During this weeklong retreat, we will learn to access the deep stillness and restfulness that a good night’s sleep promises, and open ourselves to the recognition of our own clear light of awareness.

Rinpoche will teach and guide us in the sleep yoga practice from the Mother Tantra, one of the most important body of tantric teachings in the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition. A powerful tool for awakening, sleep yoga brings us to a deep state of rest for personal healing and transformation. Ultimately, sleep yoga opens the door to the luminous, open awareness that is the true nature of the mind.
