Synopsis:

More than a decade ago, Robert Moss began to call the work he did with dreamers “active dreaming” because it involves re-entering dreams, exploring the possibilities revealed in dreams, and consciously directing the subconscious to explore events or solve problems with dreams. Now, he has written a book that takes the next step beyond using and directing sleeping dreams to using the same powers that govern our night dreams to pursue our “dream lives,” the life we were born to live. Mosss Active Dreaming is an original synthesis of contemporary dreamwork and shamanic methods of journeying and healing. A central premise of Mosss approach is that dreaming isn't just what happens during sleep; dreaming is waking up to sources of guidance, healing, and creativity beyond the reach of the everyday mind. As Moss describes it, our “big story” is stalking us, and if we dont embrace that story, others will impose their own stories, little stories and “small” identities, on us.

Based on Mosss active teaching, the techniques in this book are time-tested and playful. They help readers expand their notions of what it means to “dream” and how they can tap into the powers dormant within each of us. Like any skill, active dreaming grows with the readers practice, evolving and expanding into a powerful force in relationships, at work, and in pursuit of goals. As in his previous books, Moss draws from indigenous traditions, ancient and modern history, and spiritual teachings to provide examples and insight into the stories and exercises. The book explores synchronicity, self-definition, shared dreaming, working with childrens dreams, healing dreams, shamanic dreaming, and working in dream groups. Throughout, amazing true success stories and playful exercises will inspire and motivate readers to put the techniques to the test in their daily lives.

Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. They choose to stop running away from the monster in our dreams, who may turn out to be our own power that is hunting them, when they brave up and turn around to confront it. They choose not to buy into self-limiting beliefs or the limited models of reality suggested by others. Active dreamers learn to grow a dream of possibility, a dream strong enough it take us beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight.


Synopsis:

Practical Magic for Living the “Life of Your Dreams”

Active Dreaming is a way of being fully of this world while maintaining constant contact with another world, the world-behind-the-world, where the deeper logic and purpose of our lives are to be found. Active Dreaming offers three core areas of practice: talking and walking our dreams to bring energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life; shamanic lucid dreaming; and conscious living.

Robert Moss has been studying and exploring dreaming ��" another form of consciousness ��" for decades. He asserts that we don’t need to sleep to dream. Dreaming also encompasses the entire imaginal realm, including meditation. His method of “active dreaming” involves reentering dreams to explore possibilities and to direct the subconscious to clarify and solve problems. Dreaming is not a passive activity. Active dreamers learn that they always have choices, and can choose to not buy into self-limiting beliefs or those imposed by others. Dreaming means waking up to sources of guidance, healing and creativity ��" journeying beyond self-limitation to a life of freedom. Of course the underlying premise is that we need to pay attention to our dreams, whether they occur while asleep or awake.
��" Alice R. Berntson, New Connexion Journal
