The Seth, Dream & Lucid Dream Retreat
A 5 day intensive course, designed for both beginners and old hands, with instructors Robert Waggoner and David Cielak.
November 8-13, 2019
Los Angeles, California
David Cielak and Robert Waggoner
THIS RETREAT is an intensive immersion and course on dreams and lucid dreams, including Seth’s teachings in these areas. It will include dream and lucid dream exercises and techniques, belief work, dream incubations, and comprehensive material on how to use dreams and lucid dreams as a path to personal growth, health, abundance and spiritual wisdom.
A lucid dream is a dream in which the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. In a lucid dream you can fly through space, talk with friends and relatives, connect with guides and teachers or instantly materialize objects, all in the safety of your own inner world.
Historically though, experienced lucid dreamers have used this state of consciousness as an expressway to greater self-realization, spiritual wisdom and to access the source of their being. The Indian Buddhist yogi, Naropa, suggested that the main technique of dream yoga, lucid dreaming, provided students one of the six pathways to enlightenment. Seth has said that “It is possible for the inner and outer egos to merge to some extent, and this merging when it occurs does indeed represent the formation of a new kind of consciousness... When you carry the waking I into the dream state, this is one approach to this different consciousness.”
Scientifically validated for over thirty years, recent neuroscientists have deemed lucid dreaming a “hybrid state of consciousness”, since the dreaming brain and portions of the waking/conscious brain show simultaneous activation. In other words, when you are lucid dreaming, your conscious mind and your inner mind appear joined in a shared creative collaboration, or a unique, hybrid state of consciousness.
More and more people are becoming aware of lucid dreaming’s potential for investigating consciousness, the dream state and the psyche. Numerous accounts already exist of lucid dreamers using this special state for emotional healing as well as physical healing. Moreover, lucid dreamers have reported feeling that they have encountered another layer of the Self and a reservoir of unconscious information and knowledge; two concepts which Seth has often discussed.
In this retreat the instructors will assist you in learning how to use the dream state to help solve problems, aid in the healing of physical or mental illnesses, and to create health and fulfillment in all areas of your life. Further, the instructors will assist you in learning how to create a stable lucid dream, so you can explore the beauty, creativity, wisdom and infinite potential of your larger awareness.
