Overview


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.

Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. 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 to take them beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Writing about dreams, Moss is eloquent and authoritative, a wise teacher.”
Publishers Weekly

“This book sits at the intersection of poetry and practicality. Robert Moss speaks to a world we each inhabit and only dimly understand. Read this book.”
Peter Block, coauthor of The Abundant Community

Active Dreaming is a jewel of a book! It not only helps us to personally transform our lives but also provides a path to transform the world we live in.”
Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval and How to Thrive in Changing Times

“A life cut off from dreams is a life half-lived. Robert Moss is one of our wisest guides to dreams and dreaming. Highly recommended.”
Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions and Reinventing Medicine

    highly recommended

    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
