Tibetan Dream Yoga And The Ancient Philosophy Of Tibetan Buddhism Explore New Depths To Lucid Dreaming And Get A Taste Of Some Dream Yoga Techniques
TibetanDream Yoga is the original form of lucid dreaming documented for at least 1,000 years.
Also known as Milam – the yoga of the dream state – it’s a suite of advanced tantric techniques.

The Basis Of Dream Yoga
Dream yoga is taught within the trance Bardos of Dream and Sleep. In the tradiditon of tantra, it’s usually passed on by a qualified teacher, once the student has passed an initiation.
It’s considered a passing on of enlightened experience rather than reading texts, and requires the student to develop sufficient self awareness to achieve conscious lucidity during sleep.
Their aim is to harness the power of the lucid dream state by “apprehending the dream”. Students are then required to complete set tasks to take them to the next level. These tasks include:
- Practice sadhana
- Receive initiations, empowerments and transmissions
- Visit different places, planes and lokas
- Communicate with yidam
- Meet with other sentient beings
- Fly and shape shift into other creatures
The ultimate goal in Tibetan dream yoga is to apprehend the dream – and then dissolve the dream state.
When deprived of physical and conceptual stimulus from the dreaming mind, you can observe the purest form of conscious awareness.
