Hello Everyone!

I’ve been dying for a community where I can search and read more information about the Dream Yoga practice for a while now and i am happy to be here!
Without specifically practicing “Dream Yoga” I have been requesting information, experimenting with, and exploring my lucid dreams for spiritual guidance and heightened awareness for seventeen years.
Some years are less transformative than others but its something I’ve remained consistently adamant about pursuing my entire life regardless of ridicule and judgment.
The biggest thing I believe I lack is not carving out a consistent meditation practice, but with so much bs information in the world about what meditation is best suited for the participant, i have remained skeptical about what will give me the experience I am seeking.
I would like to learn more meditation and induction techniques so that I can increase and regulate my WILD experiences, and find a way to “walk the walk” more directly in my everyday life.
I know I probably need meditation more than the average person, I have a tendency to be short tempered and agitated at times when it is not warranted.
Thanks for having me everyone!


Good to have you here. Have you listened to the interview that Andrew has with Richard Miller about Yoga Nidra? If meditation may not be your thing right now, perhaps a more guided practice such as Yoga Nidra would work for you.


I’ll definitely check it out.


Hi there @Luxporta ! Welcome to this (awesome) community :slight_smile:

Meditation could be highly beneficial in many ways, (Lucid) Dream-wise as well. I’ve been searching for my own meditative path too… So many techniques, it quickly gets confusing. That’s why I wanted to follow a clear practice or tradition. As of Now, Zen (and zazen) seems to be what really works for me. So I’m kinda combining Zen and Dream Yoga, and am having some quite good results with this.

Then, the practice of Shamatha, something as simple as Mindfulness of Breathing could be excellent too. You could have a look on Alan Wallace’s “The Attention Revolution” or “The Mind Illuminated” by Culadassa, which entirely deals with mindfulness of breathing, although he includes elements of Vipashyana. I haven’t finished the latter, hardly read the first 50 pages, as I found my way in Zen (I just finished “The Three Pillars Of Zen” which is also an amazing book and a great guide to the practice of zazen) but I know it’s been really well-received.

And then there’s also Vipashyana. I’ve never really practiced it, so I can’t tell, but again, it must be highly beneficial. Anything that can bring the mind to a rest and to a state of greater clarity is already a good start.

Of course, if you get a chance to find a real teacher, that would be awesome. In the meanwhile, books are always helpful… So. The point is to find something that works for you… knowing your practice can evolve overtime, too.
