Description: 
Originally developed for British military veterans, Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep is a holistic approach for people with stress or trauma affected sleep patterns. In this talk we will  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 and body-work practices the MODS Method helps to reduce stress before bed and optimise sleep quality.
 
Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep is based on an unconditionally compassionate approach to sleep and dreams and is made up of five core practices which the talk will explore in detail.
 
  1. Normalisation of Trauma Affected Sleep
  2. Hypnogogic Mindfulness (Yoga Nidra)
  3. De-stigmatising Nightmares
  4. Coherent Breathing (the Breath-Body-Mind approach)
  5. Lucid Dreaming

 

This talk will lay out the foundations for the 1 day practical workshop on the subject that Charlie will be offering on April 5th.
