Dream Yoga in Nepal

I’m currently in Nepal and wondering if anyone in the community knows about monasteries or lamas & rinpoches to reach out to in regards to dream yoga training.

I remember that Andrew had spent some time in Nepal as part of his three year Buddhist meditation retreat. Charlie Morley has also shared his story with Lama Yeshe Rinpoche.

Andrew @aholecek might appreciate this. During a conversation at one of the local monasteries someone mentioned you as a great teacher. I’m paraphrasing: “Andrew Holocek is really great when it comes to dream yoga,” she said.

To share with the community, I’ve been visiting so far Tsoknyi Gechak Ling Nunnery and there is also Tergar Osel Ling Monastery. Both led by Tsonknyi Rinpoche and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, who have also written some great books on the topic of meditation:

  • The Joy of Living
  • Turning Confusion into Clarity
  • Love with the World
  • Joyful Wisdom
  • Why we meditate (with Daniel Goleman)

These books mention dreams although primarily focused on meditation.

Any comments or suggestions welcome.

Hi Link,
if you’re already associated with a particular tradition it would probably make sense to visit one of their monasteries in Nepal and ask.
Remember that Dream Yoga is considered traditionally as a higher teaching.
All the best

I agree with @KhyungMar’s observations. Dream Yoga as I’ve been learning is traditionally taught as part of the higher teachings such as The Six Yogas of Naropa and The Six Yogas of Nigumpa. Have you visited “The White Gompa” in Boudhananth? Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche is there.

Great book list, will add them to my reading list.

Not sure I can help you with the information you are seeking. But if you presubmit a question to Andrew in the Q&A section, he will probably have some good tips. You can also presubmit that quetion in the book study group, or depending on your internet access and time zone, join those events and ask him live.

How long are you in Nepal for? Do you speak the native language?

Have a safe trip.
