Today, on the thirtieth anniversary of John Lennon’s murder, I am thinking about how his dreams might have saved his life, had he been able to do more with them. Late in 1979, Lennon was troubled by a dream in […]

Dream clues in foreign languages

posted by Robert Moss

The shaman’s primary tool for journeying is the single-headed frame drum, the type we use in Active Dreaming circles. I am constantly astonished, though no longer surprised, by how quickly this ancient instrument can help even the most rational, cognicentric Westerner to enter another state of bei
