Originally developed for British military veterans, Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep is a holistic approach to healing for people with stress or trauma affected sleep patterns.
In this practical 6 week course we’ll learn how to transform the harmful effects that stress and trauma can have on the third of our life that we spend asleep.
Using scientifically verified mindfulness based techniques alongside breath & body-work practices, deep relaxation and lucid dreaming the Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep protocol helps to reduce stress before bed and optimize sleep quality.
Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep is based on a non-pathologizing approach to sleep & dreams supported by five core pillars: 1. Sleep Awareness (learning how we sleep) 2. Rest & Relax (lying down relaxation practices) 3. Coherent Breathing/ Breath-Body-Mind (breath work & chi gong) 4. Transforming Nightmares (befriending trauma dreams) 5. Lucid Dreaming (consciously healing your dreams)
From common work-related stress to the more serious effects of trauma, this 6 week course will teach you effective techniques to help you sleep better and wake up healthier.
These practices are very effective. Analysis from over 75 previous participants found that 87% reported significantly improved sleep quality while 77% reported significantly lowered levels of anxiety around sleep after the 6 week course.
The course will also explore: • The Science of Sleep Cycles • The Neuroscience of Trauma • Optimising our Sleep Health • Dream-work for Trauma Integration
All workshop sessions are recorded for you so if you miss a session you can still catch up but please try and come to every session if possible.
Whether you currently have stress of trauma affected sleep or not, learning these practices is still deeply beneficial and so everybody is welcome!
