This video is a prelude to the Art of Lucid Dream Yoga, a class that teaches people lucidity techniques & mastery of how to be aware & conscious while still in the dream time. Filmed live at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Iowa City Yoga festival, Baraka Kanaan (DreamingBear) inspires through, laughter, music, & new paradigm poetics. The average person will spend about six years of their life dreaming. However, very few will develop the ability to remember even a fraction of that experience, rendering the rest of society with dream-amnesia. Dreaming was once a way of life, indigenous peoples from all cultures have long standing dream traditions as a form of spiritual practice & intuitive development, including the ancient cultures of Egypt, Greece, Tibet, & the Maya to name a few. The very first religions were dream based; many Native American customs included entire families dreaming together & sharing their dreams over breakfast as a sort of preview of what to anticipate for the day. Tribal wisdom suggests that all dreams are of the future, & you get to choose which of them will manifest. When we dream, we all go to a sort of subconscious nexus, or hub of other-worldly interactions. To the aboriginal people of Australia, Dreaming is the objective reality, a kind of “all at once time” or “every-when” whereas the waking world is an illusion. Although many scientific & technological advancements have developed from dreams such as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, Edison’s light bulb, & others too numerous to mention, western society has largely ignored the value of dreaming as an arena for experimentation & exploration. Instead of tapping into the latent potential of our dreams as a direct line to the Source of all information, we have relegated dreams to being merely a phenomenon or byproduct of biology. As a consequence, entire generations have developed a nightly coma; forgetting some of the most adventurous moments in their life filled with reality bending, mind blowing epiphanies of experience! Dreams are our inter- dimensional doorways, personal connection to Infinity, fractals of pure potentiality, reflection of our psychological emotional state, & a golden opportunity to cultivate our unlimited being into waking embodiment. The real journey begins as you access nonlocal mind, awaken the sixth sense of lucidity, & create your own adventure into the great unknown.
