Begins June 6: New TWR LIVE Series on Dream Yoga

twr live logo fullFrom June 6 through August 8, 2017, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will offer a free, two-month series of TWR LIVE teachings on dream yoga. The practice of dream yoga is a powerful tool of awakening, used for hundreds of years by great masters of the Tibetan traditions. It aids us in deepening awareness at all moments of life: while dreaming at night, during the dream-like experience of the day, and in the bardo experiences after death. Ultimately, dream yoga helps us to recognize the true nature of mind.

Each Tuesday throughout the series, you can visit Rinpoche's Facebook page at 1 p.m. (12 noon on June 20) Eastern Daylight time U.S. (New York time) to view either a live teaching and guided meditation; or a live conversation between Rinpoche and an invited guest on a topic related to dream yoga. Between these 30- to 40-minute Tuesday sessions, Rinpoche will offer occasional, unscheduled live sessions to elaborate on the previous session and answer viewers' questions. All sessions are recorded for future viewing.

Teaching and Q&A topics will include, in order:

  • June 6, 1 p.m.: Introduction to Dream Yoga 
  • June 13, 1 p.m.: Conversation Live with Dylan Tuccillo, Jared Zeizel and Thomas Peisel, co-authoars of A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming: Mastering the Art of Oneironautics
  • June 20, 12 noon: Dream Yoga Foundational Practices
  • (Date TBA): Basics of Lucid Dreaming
  • (Date TBA): Healing Through Lucid Dreaming
  • (Date TBA): How to Transform Recurring Dreams
  • (Date TBA): Dream Yoga as a Lifetime Practice
