It is said that the practice of dream yoga deepens our awareness during all our experience: the dreams of the night; the dream-like experience of the day; and the bardo experiences after death. Indeed, the practice of dream yoga is a powerful tool of awakening, used for hundreds of years by the great masters of the Tibetan traditions. Unlike in the Western psychological approach to dreams, the ultimate goal of Tibetan dream yoga is the recognition of the nature of mind or enlightenment itself. Learn More »

Since ancient times meditative practices from many spiritual traditions have used sound and its vibration as an essential tool for healing and spiritual development. Through singing and chanting, spiritual practitioners and healers are able to purify and restore harmony within physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions. In this course you will learn to use the healing power of five sacred syllables referred to as the Five Warrior Syllables. Guided by the mind and carried by the breath through subtle channels within the body, the power of sound will open the potential to bring joy and love to your life, facilitate personal healing, dissolve energetic disturbances, and awaken positive action in the world around you. Personal support and guidance is provided by Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. Learn More »

Its just fantastic! I love the accessiblity of the teachings, the teacher and the very real presence of other practitioners. It feels like an amazing way to use the internet and the course has helped me to be a happier person. So many deep and heartfelt thanks.
This was an amazing learning modality! I cannot express my joy and appreciation enough. The videos, forums, MP3's and community have been life-altering.
It was great to learn these teachings from a real expert on the subject. The online community and support was wonderful.
I am grateful for the depth, elegance and clarity that the Dream Yoga workshop and practice provide. I quickly noticed positive change in my waking life.
I have found this workshop to be very comprehensive and profound. Doing this course on-line allows for a direct integration of the practices into everyday life. My sincere thanks to Rinpoche and the team.
Like always, the experience took me deeper and opened me up further than I could have imagined. I always get a clearer sense of life when I step into Rinpoche's teachings and try them for myself. So very very grateful.
I feel that this was the most valuable workshop in my life. The thousand years old teachings of the Bon lineage presented in a nice and simple to understand and absorb method for the western mind. Thank you Rinpoche and Glidewing.
These wondrous teachings have brought me a clearer understanding of myself and my universe around me and have enriched my life with a greater peace and clarity and have brought me even closer to the infinite spirit within me.
I am always so grateful to have this connection with Rinpoche and on-line sangha. I'm sure we are a very special community in the world, and this world is looking more and more beautiful everyday. Thank you from my heart.
It was great to study with and to learn from people who are so open minded and take seriously the same topics which are important to me. The workshop was like being on a trip after which your horizons became broader.
I loved how this workshop was focused on lucid living as well as lucid dreaming. How the lucid dreaming environment can be used for us to grow more in the awake state and how these states are connected. Very grateful for being part of this workshop.
The breadth and depth of information presented was wonderful - there is something here for both the aspiring lucid dreamer and the advanced or intermediate lucid dreamer!
What an incredible experience this workshop was. Not only was the site intuitive to navigate, and the instructions and materials top notch, but Robert Waggoner's hands-on personalized attention took the workshop to the next level. Highly recommended.
I have never thought before that an online workshop could offer such a clear and so very high spiritual teaching in such a profound way that it touches every aspect of my being in a healing way. It is real beyond imagination.
This online workshop format really works. ... Honestly I've received these teachings orally and from readings before, but after this course I feel like I finally understand what it is all about.
I am astounded by what a rich experience this has been. Being able to ask the teacher questions was a real gift. The format of the workshop was so user-friendly. I can't say enough about how much I have enjoyed and benefited from this experience. Thank you.
To receive so powerful teachings in the context of a home retreat has been for me a unique experience. And to have the opportunity to integrate them in my everyday life at the same time... I have no words to express the gratitude I feel for this gift!
Gratitude for such an awesome experience right in my home and appreciation for all that helped in making this workshop possible, many thanks.
This has been one of the most important things I have done in my life. It has set a completely new way of living for me. I gained so much more from this course than I have ever hoped for...
This platform was marvelous. I have participated in online learning systems, but to me this was the most user-friendly and robust. Kudos to GlideWing!
