The origin and power of the shaman’s drum

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 […]

posted by Robert Moss

I am out in the woods in the middle of the night, on Cortes Island. I notice other figures, animal and human and hybrid, moving among the trees, taking form then fading back into the shadows. I find three clear and reliable […]

Shamanic lucid dreaming

posted by Robert Moss

Until recently, I was not an enthusiast for the term “lucid dreaming”, because it came to be associated with silly notions of “controlling” or “manipulating” dreams. Through dreaming, we have access to a source that is infinitely wiser and deeper […]

Are you following a life script, or creating one?

posted by Robert Moss

They are building a stage in front of the lake house in the park. A theater under construction is a pretty good metaphor for life. My mind turns to those lines from As You Like It we all know: All the […]

Bringing the lost child down from the Soul Tree

posted by Robert Moss

I started a recent workshop, as I often do, by inviting the participants to imagine themselves, in standing meditation, putting down roots into the earth, like a tree. As the meditation deepened, they found themselves rising between earth and sky, […]

A marvelous day for a moonwalk

posted by Robert Moss

A young woman in my Chicago workshop last Saturday shared a dream of that morning in which the Moon appeared and came closer and closer until she could walk on it. She met a wise and good-humored guide who showed […]

Drink from your bowl of sky

posted by Robert Moss

Everyone has their own bowl of sky. I woke with this beautiful and mysterious line echoing in my mind. At first, I could remember nothing more from the dream that had delivered it. But as I lay in bed in […]

A cat’s eye on the 12 lights

posted by Robert Moss

There has been tremendous interest in the work my advanced groups have been doing with the 12 lights as a possible new model of imaginal and energetic healing, so I am going to post occasional reports on what we have […]

Loving the 12 lights

posted by Robert Moss

People love the healing story of the twelve lights that Bonnie Horrigan shared on my radio show this week, and which I wrote about in my previous article here. I have received lots of email and Facebook messages from people […]

Dreaming in amber

posted by Robert Moss

I have been privileged to lead dream workshops in Lithuania three times, at the invitation of my friend Rita Baniene, and each visit has been a grand adventure and a deepening encounter with the spirits of the land. When I […]

In praise of dream fragments: tale of a red blob

posted by Robert Moss

Many of us in our society are undergoing a prolonged dream drought. Losing connection with night dreams is a serious malady of soul, in the eyes of indigenous elders. If you have lost your dreams, it may be because you […]

Hummingbird Medicine: retreats that are good for the heart

posted by Robert Moss

I was leading a weekend workshop in the original California Gold Rush country, at a center just outside Coloma. The workshop was titled “Dreaming a Life with Heart.” In the first morning session, as always, I had people introduce themselves […]

Seeing with Hawk & other dream drawings

posted by Robert Moss

Drawing from dreams is a fabulous way to get their energy moving. Giving spontaneous expression to our visions in this way brings out the child and the artist inside us. It also provides a fun record of our inner life, […]

Community soul healing: bringing our lost children out of the glass bubble

posted by Robert Moss

I am out in the woods in the middle of the night, in the midst of leading a workshop on Cortes Island in British Columbia. I notice other figures, animal and human and hybrid, moving among the trees, taking form then fading […]

Trans-temporal healing through Active Dreaming

posted by Robert Moss

Dreaming, we are time travelers. We step outside linear Chronos time into a more spacious dimension, from which we can descend into times past or times future. When we wake up to what is possible, we can travel consciously into […]

I’ll teach you in my dreams

posted by Robert Moss

It’s not unusual for me to receive 10-20 dream reports a day in which the dreamers have encountered me. These reports come from complete strangers and from intimate friends, from people engaged in live workshops where we are practicing conscious […]

Dream theater – pinnacle of improv, power for healing

posted by Robert Moss

Dream theater is one of my favorite things in my Active Dreaming workshops. Sometimes the energy of a dream is so lively we can’t wait until the full dream report has been shared with the circle; we have to start […]

How to stop dreaming dead men’s dreams I

posted by Robert Moss

It’s starting again. She is in the jungle, and it steams and stinks. She sees Asian men in rags through the green tangle, and knows they will kill her if they can. Overhead, the whir of choppers beats the air, […]

In the room of golden serpents

posted by Robert Moss

She shows me the story of her life, in a room richly decorated with golden serpents. I am fascinated by the fine definition of their scales. Some project from the walls like water spouts, others are coiled, some interwined, each […]
