Introducing at this year's Gateways, tales of consciousness exploration experiences that have positively impacted the daily lives of these prolific lucid dreamers and out of body explorers. Draw inspiration and insight from the practices of our Gateways Shorts presenters.
Annalaura Trivellato, The International Academy of Consciousness
''Understanding death to live a better life.''
One of the greatest questions that intrigue us all as human beings is to know and understand what waits for us after death. Science has its answers, spirituality its own.
The aim of this talk is to find a common ground where aspects of conventional science will be explored, as well as information from non-physical dimension explored through astral projection or Near Death-Like Experiences.
Life after death, reincarnation, multiple dimensions, life manifesting itself beyond the boundaries of the physical body and brain, holo-memory, desoma (deactivation of a vehicle of manifestation), resoma (rebirth) will be presented and explored in a direct and accessible way.
Caz Coronel, DJ and group leader of Conscious Explorers
''A journey through FEAR! From complete avoidance to showing it who’s boss!''
Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise! These are the options fear gives us when faced with them. Nothing controls our lives as much as fear. It sits at the door to every decision we make. It is also the number one reason why many people fail to have an OBE and more importantly fail to live their dreams. But fear not! There is a way through fear so you can make all your dreams come true!
Caz will take you on a exploration to the edges of consciousness, allowing you to stare into the face of this most dreaded state of mind. Talking from personal experience she will share her own journey through an epic fear of public speaking to giving this talk. Caz will give you some invaluable tools to managing fear in any area of life using dreams, lucid dreams and OBEs. She will share with you the benefits and gifts that fear can bring allowing you to transmute this potentially paralysing state to liberating yourself to live the life you were born to live.
Charlie Morley, UK's Leading Lucid Dream Teacher
The Power Of 24 Hour Awareness
Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep is a holistic approach to lucidity training that is not just about learning how to lucid dream; rather, it is about how to use all areas of falling asleep, dreaming and waking up for spiritual and psychological growth. Using this approach this talk will explore how to practice mindfulness mediation through every stage of the sleep and dream process and how these stages directly correspond to the death and dying process within Tibetan Buddhism.
By combining this approach with explorations on the nature of dreamlike reality we open ourselves up to the potential of 24 hour awareness. This has been a potential which yogis from all the spiritual traditions have upheld as attainable to all those who were willing.
