Don’t flee the dream scene

posted by Robert Moss

A nightmare, in my personal lexicon, is not merely a scary dream; it is an UNFINISHED dream. We don’t want to leave anything – least of all ourselves – on the table in a dream of this kind. So you […]

Shared dreaming as home entertainment

You’re separated from your sweetheart and you’d like to have some good private time together. Can you do that? Absolutely. As in the old song, “you can reach [him or her] with your mind.” The next question is: Your place […]

Why do so many adults in Western society deny that they dream or insist that dreams do not matter? These attitudes are partly the work of societal pressures, and of the authority we have assigned to two kinds of authority: those who have aspired to control our inner lives and those who have sugge
