Dream Yoga is a valuable method, not only for transforming the ‘sleep state’, but for learning how to approach physical birth or death with a sense of confidence and the possibility of embarking upon a luminous adventure. Ngak’chang Rinpoche will introduce the art of life as the dance of birth and death with the sleeping and waking states. He will teach the Aro gTér cycle of practises which derive from Niguma: the yoga of clear light, the yoga of dream, and the yoga of illusion.
The practices of clear light, lucid dreaming, and illusory wakefulness are techniques for finding self-luminous awareness in every moment of the day and night – whatever our state of consciousness. Both awake and asleep, we lack authentic awareness. During the day, we are distracted by expectations, obligations, and avoidance. In dreams, we lose conceptual consciousness, and in our stupor we are at the mercy of bizarre imaginal events. In deep sleep, we seem to have no awareness at all.
The practice of dream yoga allows access to ‘lucid dreams’ in which we are aware we are dreaming – and are thus able to perform ‘miracles’. Choosing to experience anything we can imagine – dreaming becomes a luminous adventure. The practice of clear light allows us to retain awareness through the process of falling asleep and into the deep sleep without dreams. This practice liberates us from addiction to familiar form and enables us to experience pure awareness without sensory or conceptual content. The practice of illusory wakefulness connects powerfully with dream yoga through sitting meditation in waking consciousness, thus revealing the ‘one taste’ or essential sameness of experience in both waking and sleeping. Together, these practices free us from conceptual limitations of time and space, and allow us to experience the simultaneous continuity and discontinuity of experience.

Natural Heroism and Ying'khor


Lama Bar-ché Dorje will explore the subject of 'Natural Heroism' in an easygoing, to the point kind of manner. Feeling ourselves a mind warrior in all our life circumstances is a quality that we all need on our path of liberation.

Along with the teachings on natural heroism, Bar-ché Dorje will also be introducing Ying'khor. Ying'khor is a body of physical exercises from Dzogchen long-dé. These yogic exercises coordinate movement, visualisation and synchronised breath, navigating our subtle energy system. They are suitable for all kinds of people, and have a number of benefits like improving health.

During the weekend, Bar-ché Dorje will be offering the tantric empowerment of Ling Gésar or Thangtong Gyalpo. The lung of the mantra and melody will also be given.

"Being a practitioner is: having the courage to face yourself at all times; exploring the open space of the unknown with eyes wide open; allowing fear to be an ornament of the journey into vastness; not compromising; being strong in view and promise; forgetting yourself and whatever defines you; and, being beneficial to everyone, everything, and everywhere. Being a Buddhist is to cultivate warrior mind. Without warrior mind you will never look further and never discover reality. This event will show you how to deal with life with your eyes wide open.” Bar-ché Ying-rig Dorje

Natürlicher Heldenmut und Ying'khor


An diesem Wochenende wird Lama Bar-ché Dorje das Thema des "Natürlichen Heldenmuts" in entspannter, pointierter Art beleuchten. Uns in allen Lebenssituationen im Geist als Helden zu fühlen ist eine Qualität, die wir alle auf unserem Weg zur Realisation benötigen.

Lama Bar-ché wird in diesem Kontext auch einige Ying’khor-Übungen vorstellen. Ying’khor ist ein Übungssystem aus dem Dzogchen longdé. Es arbeitet durch bestimmte Bewegungen, Visualisationen und dazu synchronisierter Atmung mit dem subtilen Energiesystem. Die Übungen helfen unter anderem ganz allgemein, den Gesundheitszustand zu verbessern.

 Während des Wochenendes wird Lama Bar-ché auch die Ermächtigungen von Ling Gésar oder Thangthong Gyalpo anbieten. Der Lung von Mantra und Melodie wird ebenfalls gegeben werden. 

"Ein Praktizierender zu sein heißt, den Mut zu haben, sich selbst in’s Gesicht zu sehen. Wir erforschen den offenen Raum des Unbekannten mit offenen Augen, erlauben der Angst, ein Ornament der Reise in den weiten Raum zu sein, machen keine Kompromisse, sind unerschütterlich in Bezug auf unsere Sicht und unser Versprechen, vergessen, wer wir sind und was uns definiert – um für alles und alle überall nützlich zu sein. Ein Buddhist zu sein heißt, geistiges Heldentum zu kultuvieren. Ohne diese Geisteshaltung werden wir nie über unsere Grenzen hinausblicken und nie die Realität entdecken. Dieser Retreat wird aufzeigen, wie wir unser Leben mit weit offenen Augen leben können." Bar-ché Ying-rig Dorje
