The First 3 days of the Retreat
The "Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep" approach teaches us not only how to lucid dream within the context of psycho-spiritual growth, but also how to practice mindfulness meditation, how to increase our everyday awareness and how to work with our dreaming mind to reach our fullest potential.
The aim of the workshops is not just about being aware within your dreams and tapping into the wellspring of wisdom that resides in the dreaming mind, but also about how to wake up to life and to live lucidly with joy and confidence! All ages and abilities are welcome!. We sleep for a third of our lives. Have you ever wondered how you might make better use of that time? Over this 3-day retreat, Hay House author and co-creator of “Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep” Charlie Morley shows us how to utilize that 30 year blackout to dream lucidly, sleep deeply and to train our minds to engage meditation, all while we are sound asleep.
By using the best of both Tibetan Buddhist and Western lucid dreaming techniques, "Mindfulness of Dream and Sleep" offers a uniquely holistic approach to lucid dreaming with the aims of psychological growth, friendship with our psyches and nocturnal spiritual practice.

What is Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep?
Charlie’s teaching style for retreats has evolved into a more practical and interactive form than ever before with the addition of music, mindful movement and interactive exercises which all serve to deepen the learning experience
Retreat participants even have the opportunity to engage in optional group dreaming sessions throughout the night in which Charlie guides the group into each dream period with a specific technique. Check out the optional sleepover timetable below for details.
All retreats include an overview of the history, science and practice of lucid dreaming from both the Western psychological and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, instructions on how to maintain awareness into and out of sleep, recognition of illusion and plenty of hands-on teachings learning “how to lucid dream”.

The Final Day of the Retreat
"Wake Up and Smile:
Lucid Living" workshop
Imagine if we could become lucid in this shared dream of waking life? This is a big idea which can lead to big shifts in ourselves, others and the world around us. In this new interactive workshop lucid dreaming teacher Charlie Morley shifts the focus from Lucid Dreaming to Lucid Living as part of an exploration into how we can be more awake, more aware and more joyfully engaged in our daily lives.
Using a combination of scientifically verified techniques, mindfulness meditation practices and creative writing exercises the lucid living approach aims to wake us up to the amazing potential that a human life offers us and to the “gratitude attitude” of lucid living!
The last day is a practical and interactive exploration of wakefulness, kindness, and well-being from the perspectives of positive psychology, Tibetan Buddhism and Western neuroscience. So come and learn why thinking about death is good for you, happiness is a habit and helping others helps yourself! It’s time to wake up!
The content of this last day was created under the guidance of meditation instructor Prof. Rob Nairn and has the support of Lama Yeshe Rinpoche.
