In this immersive lucid dreaming retreat Charlie Morley shows us how to utilise the third of our life that we spend sleeping to dream lucidly, sleep consciously and to train our minds to be “more awake, more aware, and more kind.”

This retreat offers a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming with the core aims of psychological growth and nocturnal spiritual practice.
The retreat is open to complete beginners (as well as seasoned lucid dreamers) and will include everything you need to learn how to lucid dream and to wake up to your fullest potential.

We will combine a 12-hour daily schedule with optional night-time practices which help us move into the possibility of 24-hour mindfulness.

The retreat includes teachings on the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Western and Tibetan Buddhist dream yoga traditions, instructions on how to maintain awareness into and out of sleep, recognition of the dreamlike nature of the waking state and of course: plenty of practical teachings on “how to lucid dream”.

Highlights include:

• Guided lucid dream sessions throughout the night (optional)
• Tibetan Dream Yoga practices
• Lucid dreaming psychodrama exercises
• Periods of silence and reflection
• Daily dream sharing circles

Charlie’s teaching style is highly practical: using music, movement and interactive exercises which all serve to deepen the learning experience. On all residential retreats participants have the opportunity to engage in group dreaming sessions throughout the night in which Charlie guides the group into each dream period with a specific lucidity technique.

How do these night-time practices work exactly? Participants have the option to spend the second half of the night sleeping in the workshop space where Charlie will guide them into several sessions of lucid dream practice.

The night-time wake ups are totally optional though so if you would prefer to stay in your room then that is absolutely fine.


What to bring? (for the optional sleepover sessions):

• A camping mattress/roll matt
• A sleeping bag/blanket.
• Extra pillow if you need one
• Enthusiasm and a sense of humour!
