Open Learning Course

Transpersonal Dreaming

Explore transpersonal dimensions of dreaming, drawing on scientifically grounded theories and empirical findings in dream research, as well as historical and spiritual traditions.

Start date: February 2023. Length of study: 10 weeks. Tuition: £425

Examine how our dreams relate to our waking life and how they can bring inspiration and even transform us. We consider paranormal dreams – precognitive, telepathic, and mutual dreams – weighing the evidence as to whether they may go beyond the normal constraints of time and space.

A specific topic of interest is lucid dreaming – the ability to become aware of dreaming – on which Dr Stumbrys’ extensive research has been focused.
