Andrew's Introduction to the Course
The following is a transcription of the audio:
I want to welcome you to this course on lucid dreaming, and the revolutionary practice of the nocturnal meditations. I've been wanting to do a course like this for many years and I finally have the opportunity. These remarkable practices have been cloaked in secrecy, kept under the cover of darkness for thousands of years. But with the help of modern science, and dream yoga masters starting to teach in the West, these covers are now being pulled back.
People are finally being introduced to an amazing path of dream discovery that ranges from out-of-this-world entertainment, where the only limitation really is your imagination, to the deeper opportunities for psychological growth, to even deeper potentialities for boundless spiritual development.
The benefits, as you will see, are almost too good to be true, but science confirms many of these benefits, as does my own experience in engaging in these practices for over 40 years, as well as the experiences shared by thousands of students I've taught in my seminars around the world for the last 15 years.
The more I study and practice lucid dreaming the more I'm blown away. There truly is nothing quite like waking up to your dreams. In this course, I've gathered the pith instructions from the ancient wisdom of the East, conjoined with the essential methods from the modern knowledge of the West, to give you a full-spectrum approach to attaining lucidity.
As a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, I'll share with you the clinically proven tips to improve sleep hygiene. And as a co-author of scientific papers on lucidity, as well as my experience as a subject in studies conducted by other sleep scientists, I'll also offer some of the latest science behind lucidity.
The really deep dive I took into lucid dreaming and dream yoga during my three-year meditation retreat, where these practices were part of my intensive training, infuses my direct experience into every teaching I'll present.
In this course I've also distilled the key central instructions from my three books on this topic, with a fourth book on the way, to give you everything you need to know to start having these remarkable dreams. I'll also show you how to handle virtually any obstacle that comes up and provide you with resources to support your ongoing journey after you complete this course. There's plenty of written support included as well, along with key excerpts from my books, and audio clips from some of my live presentations.
People ask me what makes this course different from all my other offerings. This course is my most succinct and practical presentation. A nuts and bolts guide to lucid dreaming and dream yoga. It's lean and mean, trimming everything down to the bare essentials for attaining lucidity. I've been engaged in lucid dreaming and dream yoga for decades. If there is a mistake, I've made it. If there's a detour or a dead end, I've taken it. I've probably learned more from my failures than my successes. And with this course, I'll show you how to avoid all the mistakes I've made and also share with you a ton of tips and tricks from the countless people I've taught.
I can't wait to share what I've learned with you and to transmit my passion for a truly revolutionary form of dreaming, one that is literally on the edge of human evolution.
So let's get started.
“Andrew Holecek is the best lucid dreaming teacher in the West. His teaching on this fascinating and important topic is clear, contextual, relevant, practical, engaging, and comprehensive. He is the only lucid dreaming teacher whose teaching spans both secular and religious origins of the practice, and with students, he is respectful, encouraging, and cheerful.” - Chris Thatcher- Attorney/Acting Coach/Somatic Psychotherapist
“Andrew’s Lucid Dreaming and Dream Yoga program was fantastic. He interweaves traditional dream yoga practices and perspectives with modern Western lucid dreaming methods and techniques, not simply as some intellectual endeavor to bridge East and West, but as a pragmatic approach to lucid dreaming and spirituality that focuses on what works. He is a clear speaker who brings humor to what and how he teaches. He covers the spectrum of practice and theory well, and makes it all practical and useful. I cannot recommend it enough.” – Jay Mutzafi Host of LucidSage – The Lucid Dreaming Podcast
“The lucid dreaming and dream yoga seminar with Andrew Holecek is some of the deepest and most profound dream work I have ever experienced. I continue to learn more as I practice. I am in awe and most grateful of the results that can be achieved and felt in everyday life through dream yoga practices. Most of which have been self-empowerment, calm presence and a deeper sense awareness for all I experience. Andrew Holecek is a very gifted and wholehearted teacher and facilitator of dream yoga.” – Jasmin Bloch M.A., Psychological Counselor, Art Therapist & Teacher, Zurich, Switzerland
