Explore the power of dreams at workshop

Tanner Jones

Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, a master of the ancient Tibetan Bon and contemporary Buddhist Dzogchen traditions, will host a “Power of Dreams Workshop” this weekend.

The workshop is Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., at 0099 Shady Lane in Aspen. Preregistration is $75 for both days or $45 for a single day, and on-site registration is $95 for both days.

The workshop will cover some Tibetan traditions and introduce participants to Ellucid Dreaming, a dream state between the conscious and unconscious states. Wangyal will discuss how people can heal themselves through envisioning health in the dream state and feeling its effects in an awake state.

This workshop will also explore the Tibetan art of Dream Yoga, which was created to “fully travel the spiritual path to enlightenment in which all of life must be recognized and engaged to spiritual opportunity,” says Wangyal. “People spend one third of their life in a dream state, which means if a person lives to be 60, then 20 years of that person’s life has been sleep.”

Wangyal is the author of the book “The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep,” which looks at how the physical positioning of the body and emotional state affects Ellucid dreaming. The book also looks at how the Ellucid dream state prepares a person for death.

He will also host a book-signing today, from 4 to 5 p.m. at Explore Booksellers.
