The Gates of Dreaming

Dream + Practice + Manifest

 Lire en français


At this exclusive four-day retreat in the Swiss Alps, immerse yourself in nature’s beauty at the dreamland of Schweibenalp’s Center for Unity, to experience the calm and fearless clarity of mind, body and spirit needed in your life to manifest your heart desires. We will guide you to use dreaming states of consciousness to manifest your deep desires in your relationships and in the area of business.

Carlos Castaneda taught to us how to access, reach and cross the gates by a rigorous practice of movement sequences called ‘energy passes’ that stimulate specific centers of energy in the body and organize the connective tissue that supports and protects the muscles, organs and structures of the human body.

“Your fascia is too tight around your jaw and around your chest; for that reason you don’t smile too often,” Castaneda pointed out to one of us one sunny day. It was the end of the summer time and we where at his house learning how to release the fascia and enter into states of calm alertness.

That day Castaneda also taught us a set of dreaming exercises to fuel our ability to focus and connect to our dreams and deep desires. “Together, the movements and dreaming practices” he continued, “will awaken hidden resources in you and support you in manifesting whatever you came here to manifest. There is no better challenge, no better use of time, than to follow what is in your heart,” he said.

Schweibenalp’s location in a mountain forest overlooking a blue pristine lake, is the ideal place to learn about conscious dreaming, to take on the challenge of discovering your heart felt dreams and to receive the energy and support that you need to manifest them.

The unique setting of this retreat underlines everything that you will learn and practice. Highlights include:

As Chris, one of the participants of last year workshop, said:

“It was such a pleasure to join my companions from around the globe at last year’s retreat at the Schweibenalp Center in Switzerland, sharing the affection and respect we have for each other. A highlight of the retreat was the hike our group took into the mountains.  We left the road behind and hiked up hills, followed winding paths, with breath taking views, until we reached a green mountain lake, surrounded by peaks and rock ledge reflecting the sun, with hemlock and spruce leading down to the clear green water’s surface.  It was a great surprise to find such a magical spot, so welcoming to us all.”

There are no prerequisites for participating.  The Teacher Training Module 3 can be taken without having participated in the previous modules. All are welcome!

BE Coach + Teacher Training Program Module 3

The online all new BE Coach Program combined with Teacher Training starts on JULY 8 to OCTOBER 12. Read more about the training program.

Module 3 is a wonderful program that focuses on neurological harmony and balance via the awareness of spirit and essence. The practices in this module help you cultivate your own inner silence, restore deep sleep and develop your understanding of dreams. They are intended to align your mind, your heart and your body.

We guide you, as our teacher Carlos Castaneda did with us, through the different Gates of Dreaming—how to reach them and cross them, and how each gate relates to your day-to-day life.

This module teaches you how to foster an active communication between your waking and dreaming states. You learn how to effectively apply the information gathered in your dreams to your daily life.

The emphasis in this module is to develop an intellectual and experiential understanding of the relationship between body-mind and Spirit. You learn techniques and practices to develop inner silence in order to wake up non-linear capabilities. Readings on psychoneuroimmunology and prefrontal cortex associations are used to support and spur discussion around our awareness of these relationships.
