I become what I see in myself. All that thought suggests to me, I can do; all that thought reveals to me, I can become. This should be man’s unshakable faith in himself, because God dwells in him.
An Integral Dream Yoga based on Samadhi of the Dream
Healing-Wisdom • Visionizing-Power • Transforming-Life • Creating-Harmony
Shamana Dream Yoga is an Integral dream yoga for the New Millennium, inspired by the work of ancient and modern yogi masters. At its core, it is based on “samadhi of the dream state of the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo, and a synthesis of the collective yoga tradition of the East, as well as indigenous healing traditions.
Deep dreaming, or Samadhi of the Dream, is for manifesting powers of soul. It is through the powers of soul that ancient and modern advanced dreamers, yogis and shamans rose in consciousness into the mid-regions and heavens while dreaming, or while meditating – in a-dream trance state. It is through powers of soul – and mastery of the breath – that healers, yogis and shamans in meditation, awake-dreams and night dreams have the potency to serve and look over humankind and creation, and work towards harmonizing heaven and earth. It is through powers of soul that we heal ourselves, others and mother earth in dreaming – assisted by nature’s intelligence and elements, and humankind’s spiritual guides and guardians.

Shamana Dreaming Principles, based on Soul, Balancing Breath, Meditation and Harmony
"Saman" – in the East – refers to the balancing breath, its energy called prana, and its inner-movement that creates wellness, longevity, and leads to higher dreams and deep sleep. It's root "sama" means equal or balance. We must balance all aspects of life – night and day.
Samana is an Eastern principle of healing – dissolving root causes of disease or disorder, a process of inner-healing through balancing life energies and creating inner and outer harmony.
Thus, in this Dream Yoga, we call deep dreams, dreams of higher dream states that heal, harmonize and transform life, "samana dreams" – soulful dreams - and the practice of dreaming for higher, lucid dream states "shamana dreaming." We also call meditations that seek to heal or transform life, an align us with higher dreams, soulful meditation, "shamana meditations" – or harmonizing meditations.
Instructions; Sharing Dream Experiences, and Question and Answers.
Participants learn the difference between dreaming — as understood in meditative and indigenous dream traditions — and dream interpretation work. In dreaming we can have mutual dreams, lucid dreams and telepathic dreams. In dreaming we can dream with ancestors and loved ones. In “dreaming practices” all of life becomes a meditation and a journey — in which everything around one can be seen as a sign or symbol, or an expression of an inner movement or dream brought into life and action.
To participate with power in the movements of our inner life one must learn to see and experience the subliminal or inner world — the dream world.
This process leads participants through a series of experiential exercises for expanding consciousness and awareness. These guided experiences are called dharanas or dream mentoring”\ techniques — to learn to have expanded and higher dreams, dreams worth having. Through such dharanas or exercises one can learn to enter sleep to be more rejuvenating and to “enliven” dreams for guidance and inspiration. Through such changes in sleep one can experience empowering dreams and dreams of spiritual potential.
This experiential teaching program is for any serious dreamer or student of dreams — 18yrs. or older. Programs for children with parents are in the planning.
