June 6–August 8, 2017
DREAM YOGA: Deepening Your Awareness Night and Day

Beginning Tuesday, June 6, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is offering a free, two-month series of TWR LIVE teachings on dream yoga. The practice of dream yoga is a powerful tool of awakening, used for hundreds of years by great masters of the Tibetan traditions. It aids us in deepening awareness at all moments of life: while dreaming at night, during the dream-like experience of the day, and in the bardo experiences after death. Ultimately, dream yoga helps us to recognize the true nature of mind.

Most Tuesdays throughout the series, you can visit Rinpoche’s Facebook page at 1 p.m. New York time, or Eastern Daylight time U.S. (see schedule below for exceptions) to view either a live teaching and guided meditation; or a live conversation between Rinpoche and an invited guest on a topic related to dream yoga. Between these 30- to 40-minute Tuesday sessions, Rinpoche will offer occasional, unscheduled live sessions to elaborate on the previous session and answer viewers’ questions. All sessions are recorded for future viewing.

Scheduled topics include:

  1. June 6, 1 p.m.: Introduction to Dream Yoga.  View recording
