Dream Analysis in Tibetan Medical Diagnosis
Saturday & Sunday, February 1 & 2 10:00 AM-12:30 PM each day
The interpretation of dreams and the use of dream states are significant practices in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Indeed, they have been of significance to Tibetan culture even prior to the arrival of the Buddhadharma. Dr. Kunchog Tseten will lead us through an introduction of three of the major uses of dreams in Tibetan culture: in prognostication, in Buddhist spiritual practice, and as a diagnostic tool in Tibetan medicine. In addition, Khenpo Konchog Molam, Resident Lama at White Lotus, and Richard Hamling, a long-time psychotherapist and member of White Lotus, will be present to add to the discussion.

Dreams in Buddhist Practice February 8, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Ven. Khenpo Konchok Molam will give a brief introduction to the practice of Dream Yoga, one of what are referred to as the Six Yogas of Naropa. These six yogas, or dharmas, are a set of tantric practices originating from the great Indian mahasiddha, Naropa, in the 11th century and form a core part of a tantric adept’s training in the Kagyu and Gelugpa traditions.
