The She Bear of Old England awakes

posted by Robert Moss

A huge, woolly bear in fierce warrior guise is storming through many scenes of battle. Her footfalls make thunder in the earth. Soldiers of an ancient army crumple before her, as if a mountain has fallen on them. I have […]

In praise of blocks

posted by Robert Moss

I come not to bury blocks, but to praise them. I am talking about the speed bumps we encounter on the roads of life. Sometimes they look like solid brick walls, or mountains set in our way. Sometimes we feel […]

Ancestral healing and adventure through dreams

Pay attention to dream hangovers

posted by Robert Moss

Even when we don’t remember our night dreams, we are likely to wake with a dream hangover. This can be a good thing. For example, we rise with renewed energy and a sense of clarity and direction about a life […]

Liminal complaints: demons, night hags and sleep paralysis

posted by Robert Moss

I’m fourteen years old and I’ve never been kissed. In the middle of the night, I feel a presence in my room. It’s a woman, and she’s coming towards me. She’s little more than a dark cloud to begin with, […]

Sex in dreams

You’re in bed with someone you’d never consider having sex with in regular life. You have the biggest orgasm you’ve ever experienced while peeing in church. You broke off a relationship seven years ago, but again and again you find […]

In my night dreams, the place of creation is often a kitchen. I don’t do a lot of cooking, but I love the image of the kitchen — where we are fed and nourished and we mix things together and cook things up — as the creative center. I especially like to think of the creative process as being
