Perhaps you dream all the time but don’t know what they mean, or you don’t know if you dream because you can’t recall them. This workshop will provide you with tools and rituals to support and amplify the magical realm of the dream lodge.
My dreams have always revealed to me subconscious patterning that needs to be healed, as well as provide clues to the future (revealing what will happen, choices to make, and giving me signposts when I am on the correct path).
There are 4 states of consciousness: waking, dreaming, deep sleep, and Turiya (which pervades the others). Yoga Nidra moves us to a place of awareness. The more we practice this, the greater our awareness in other states, including dreaming.

About New Moon Yoga Nidra
Nighttime is a time to turn towards stillness. In this stillness, we are closest to our truest essence. Add to this the powerful New Moon, which is void of light in the night sky. Out of this void and emptiness, all is birthed into Life. This is a great time to plant seeds of intentions at the start of a new lunar cycle.
We begin the session with a ritual to cleanse our space and honour the directions and elements. This practice is seen in many spiritual traditions.
We then move into a space of meditative self-inquiry (related to the New Moon in Taurus and regarding Dream), revealing our seeds of intentions for the month.
As we rest in a Restorative yoga pose, we are guided into Yoga Nidra. I share practices passed down through my teachers (from the Sri Vidya lineage – Himalayan Institute). We offer our intentions to the Goddess.
Yoga Nidra (commonly referred to as yogic sleep) is an ancient Tantric Yoga practice that helps reduce stress, anxiety, and insomnia. In ancient texts, Yoga Nidra is a Goddess.
In this session, I guide you to a place of relaxation where the thoughts begin to slow down. You’ll move into a deep state of stillness (moving through the koshas), where you are unconditionally supported and awaken a connection to the infinite or Source.
