“For the sorcerers who practice dreaming today, dreaming is freedom to perceive worlds beyond the imagination.”
The Art Of Dreaming
April 19-21, 2024
At the beautiful Seven Oaks Retreat Center,
by Shenandoah National Park
with Dr. Miles Reid & Dr. James Yates
Teaching together for the first time, Dr. James Yates and Dr. Miles Reid will guide the retreat as a team. In addition, before and after the workshop, Dr. Reid will offer individual consultations and treatments.
Develop and explore your magical side through the ever-present window of dreaming. Unleash the powers of your sleeping dreams and your waking dreams.
• Learn techniques to develop your dreaming attention for lucid dreaming
• Work though and release chronic, self-interrupting patterns with experiential dream work
• Learn how to set, visualize and activate intent, for healing and awakening
• Invoke a circle of dream allies as a vital resource on your path of awakening and healing
• Practice the energy passes (movements) of the shamans of ancient Mexico taught by Carlos Castaneda for health and entering heightened states of awareness (click here for 2 video samples: Energy Passes)
• Experience stopping the internal dialogue be means of a specific sequence of energy passes called The Seer’s Code.
Miles and James will bring together their years of experience as healing practitioners and practitioners of the shamanic teachings of Carlos Castaneda to reveal how the art of dreaming can be a portal for awakening.

Thank you to the practice participants: we exchanged a strong and varied energy.
The treatments with Miles were an unexpected gift to me: a burst of energy, a strong push to put the Intent to ask for things for me!
Thanks to Miles and his dedication we have been doing things that, as the days go by, are proving to be even more powerful than it seemed at the time.
The whole workshop was very powerful and the ceremony too. Over these last weeks several times I had to say to myself: WOW it really works! I really burned something that I actually tried to solve many times.
The effects were simply incredible. I must admit it : I do not remember when was the last time I felt that clear, comfortable, fluid, almost exhilarated in my body and mind after each treatment. This heightened state of well-being even remained for the following two weeks. As I write this testimonial, I can still attest that stress and pain levels have noticeably lessened in my muscles and joints.
This has renewed my commitment to sustain and promote my daily and long-term health and energy levels. I very much look forward to the next opportunity to get online or in-person treatment with Dr Miles Reid, whom I offer my heartfelt thanks!
The affection for this wonderful and mysterious world will guide and support me.
Thank you infinity, Miles and thanks to all of you who attended this magical moment. May the jaguar intent be with all of us!
What burned never came back.
Finally the wind caressed me to confirm that those thoughts were extinct.
What fire chanced doesn’t come back.
At the end of the ceremony the wind said to me: “ok , this went definitive!”
Thanks Miles and all for your INTENT.
For me (who had abandoned for many years and only resumed practicing in January of this year) it was a fabulous experience. Practicing in presence instead of in connection gives crazy energy.
The (many) steps that Miles proposed gave me back vitality, fluidity and self-confidence.
The relaxation and dream experiences were very very very very intense.
Thanks also to all the participants who contributed to creating a relaxed and participatory atmosphere.
A second THANK YOU to Miles for the two treatments he gave me: a physically revitalizing experience but above all that helped me to have a strong opening of my heart again.
I hope to see you soon!
A big hug and a thank you.
Heartfelt thanks to Miles for his full availability and love for us and for the practice of energy passes and for his teacher Carlos Castaneda. I am truly so grateful to you
The fire ceremony was beautiful and powerful. The fire blazed for a moment and then died down to then start again strong and high as if it were burning one problem at a time, one sheet at a time . I felt like I let go of something that was holding me back. Now I feel less of the weight of my body on my pelvis and legs.
Looking forward to the workshop in Italy and to the (re) encounter with my fellow infinity readers. For some strange reason I had the feeling that the workshop lasted one week or one minute!
Thank you Miles and all of you for keeping the dream energy alive all the way through
Mr. Miles gave me a glimpse of other ways to approach a path to healing. There may be a glimmer at the bottom of the well that I can now see if I make an effort to keep my eyes open.
It will take me a few more days to come out of the fog and receive fully what has been given to me.
Thank you for dedicating your life to helping others, Mr. Reid, and for doing so with such kindness, sincerity and heart.
I came back home full of gratitude despite the world’s situation.
Thank you Miles for sharing your wisdom and restoring my energy!
I feel more light and comfortable in my body. I allow my shoulders to open and my neck to align with my new state of mind. I just accept being myself!
It’s amazing we have such a deep rapport as we don’t share the same language. It shows the power of a heart connection.
Thank you Miles for the treatment. You’re an excellent acupuncturist. I’m so glad I got a treatment with you. After your suggestions I feel I’ve a good strategy to work with my health. Whatever we call it, luck, power, timing, the workshop was very propitious for me. Was impeccably led and received. The powerful fire ceremony epitomized the power, joy and intent that we forged together.
Having been ill I intended the workshop would renew, burning what I wished to let go of has been renewing. Opportunities have come my way without a lot of structure and input from me. I seem to have entered a magical flow where I feel obstacles have been removed and my path clear and supported. Thank you Miles and the practitioners for entering into this intent.
A lustrous bunch of beings attended and shared their wonder.
I remember on fire ceremony gazing, intending to release old habits, at a moment the flames pointed at me saying “Now is your turn!”. And I felt them burning. The ego triggered trying to tell me “I want more for me!”, but the group was there helping me see everyone has its part and intent. My gratitude to everybody supporting each other for becoming stronger and more loving beings!
who organized this event. First of all to dear Miles for his priceless knowledge and kindness… The place was nice and cozy, easy to find and beautifully welcoming.
Felt great to reconnect in this way after years. Intento!
We came back with happiness in our eyes and hearts, we sang in the car all the way for 700 km. We will practice lessons and will turn them into knowledge and connection with the infinite. Thanks to the practitioners who worked to organize the meeting happy to find you all on the path of the heart. See you soon!
So many treasures to cherish and work with from just a couple of days of practicing together with intent! May we all continue to soar on the wings of our intent and impeccability! Thank you all.
