Damanhur Mystery School – Dream Path – Level 1
We all dream even if we don’t remember our dreams… and we are always dreaming – even while awake. Dreaming is a fundamental element of life for human beings and is vital for spiritual growth and self-awareness.
For many, what Damanhur considers ‘The Inner Sense of Dreaming” lays dormant, out of reach in the waking world, but there is a way to awaken it. Once awake, this Inner Sense can be trained so we can actively participate in different realities happening simultaneously.
Dream Path - Level One
Dreams manifest in different levels, each with corresponding functions. We move from simple dreams, in which the mind reorganizes and re-examines the events of our day, to more complex dreams that extend beyond our current perceptions to other points in time or in which we leave our physical bodies and enter the astral planes of reality. More advanced, and much rarer, dreams allow access to the "Threshold", the realm of preserved memories and information waiting to be inserted (reincarnated) into new forms -- the Threshold is discussed more deeply in Spiritual Physics and Humanistic Philosophy.
Dreaming is a fundamental element of life and is vital for spiritual growth and self-awareness. With training, this sense provides the base for conscious participation in different planes of reality, restructuring the mind to let go of its need to translate sensations into physical experiences and instead contact primeval laws directly using other logics.
The Dream Paths are taught in three levels. Participants will explore the magical dimensions of the dream, rather than a psychological or psycho-analytical understanding.
Dream Path Level One is about learning to interpret the dream on a personal level, using a system based on free association and a series of other tools based on numbers, colors, repeated words, anagrams and mantras. Damanhur has created a unique powerful technique to open psychic patterns that support the individuals passage to different levels of dreaming. This technique involves tools that are based on dream signs: archetypal signs that are known and understood by the unconscious mind. Traced as patterns called 'skemas', these signs clear our internal channels and open new ways of thinking within us. In the first level course of The Paths of the Dream you will receive five such patterns. You will find that dreams change form with the use of the first five patterns.
In the second level course, another two patterns are added to aid in the interpretation of these new, elaborated dreams.
The third level of the Paths of the Dream relates specifically to dreaming as an Inner Sense, with exercises aimed at creating an inner organ. With this it is possible to move differently in the Dream world, guiding one’s actions so as to be consciously acting in other realms.
Damanhur Mystery School Courses are presented as individual weekend intensives. Each weekend intensive is a stand-alone course and may be taken individually as long as any prerequisites are satisfied. Credits will be awarded for each individual workshop.
