In life and in spiritual practice, we will encounter many in-between spaces: times of transition from one stage of life to the next, from one state of consciousness to another, and even from death to rebirth.
How can we navigate these liminal spaces—and unearth the riches contained within them?
Join Tibetan Buddhist teacher and author Andrew Holecek for an hour-long virtual workshop looking to ancient Tibetan wisdom for insights on how to work consciously with the transitory places and processes in our lives. Looking specifically to two realms of the liminal—dreaming states of consciousness as encountered in Tibetan dream yoga, and the bardo teachings, which explore the realms between death and rebirth—he will suggest how we can approach uncertainty and impermanence as opportunities for awakening.
Andrew Holecek is an author and scholar in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition who leads seminars and workshops throughout the United States and abroad. As a longtime student of Buddhism, he frequently presents the tradition from a contemporary perspective, blending ancient wisdom with modern tools. Drawing on years of intensive study and practice, he has become an expert on lucid dreaming and teaches widely on opportunities found in obstacles, hardship and pain, and death and dying. He is an experienced guide for students drawn to the powerful nocturnal practices of dream yoga.
Andrew has authored several books, including The Power and the Pain: Transforming Spiritual Hardship into Joy, Preparing to Die: Practical Advice and Spiritual Wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition, Dream Yoga; Illuminating Your Life Through Lucid Dreaming and the Tibetan Yogas of Sleep, Meditation in the iGeneration: How to Meditate in a World of Speed and Stress, and the audio program “Dream Yoga: The Tibetan Path of Awakening Through Lucid Dreaming.”
