Dreaming and Awakening – Why Dreaming is Important


Learn why dreaming is important and get an integral view of lucid dreams practice

From the moment we fall asleep (Hypnagogia) to the moment we wake up (Hypnopompia), we enter multiple dimensions of dream experiences, including lucid dreams.

These dreams can be ordinary day residue dreams or extraordinary experiences. You can heal with dreams, have dreams within dreams, telepathic, lucid dreams, or even precognitive dreams. There is a relationship between the outer world and the inner worlds and through cultivating consciousness in dreaming and waking this relationship deepens.

In this class recording, Dr. Bogzaran discusses the science of one night of sleep and the different possible types of dreams and how we can establish relationship to our dreaming world through the integral and energetic perspective. This relationship can elicit creativity, as well as psychological and emotional wellbeing. The session will have experiential components.

This class is part of our monthly Indigenous Wisdom Series from 2021
