Historically, one of the most important aspects of dream practice has been the incubation of healing dreams in temples and power places.
People have incubated dreams for healing; obtaining answers to difficult problems; contacting the departed; receiving initiations and developing familiarity with a particular dimension of transcendence.
Dreams are traditionally incubated in a sacred spot such as a temple, shrine, cave or powerful tomb. At present, it is extremely difficult to sleep within a temple, church or sacred spot, as all these places do not allow overnight stays and dream incubation is best done at night. So in this level we learn to transform our sleeping place into a sacred spot where dream incubation can be done at any time.
Dream incubation is done within a ritual context, so one learns to develop the basic steps to activate the magical aspect of the mind capable of generating magical results. Magic is defined as going beyond the limits of what was believed to be possible.
The ultimate purpose of dream incubation is developing a creative relationship with the Original Mind, the superconscious aspect of the mind. The Dream Yogas are the foundation for developing the Yogas of Death and Transcendence.
