Everything that would expect from one of the 4 day lucid dreaming immersive retreats but with a special focus on meeting & embracing our shadow through lucid dreaming!

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

The Shadow is the part of us made up of all that we hide from others: our shame, our fears, our wounds but also our divine spirit, our blinding beauty and our hidden talents.It is a huge source of power and creativity but until we bring it into the light this power will remain untapped and our full potential unreached.

Imagine if we could meet our shadow in personified form in a lucid dream? We can.

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 meet & embrace your shadow.

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

Highlights include:

*Guided lucid dream sessions throughout the night (optional)
*Shadow integration exercises.
*Lucid dreaming psychodrama exercises
*Periods of silence and reflection
*Learning how to decode the shadow in your dreams
*Daily dream sharing & shadow 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!
