Dreaming requires practice, practice

posted by Robert Moss

It’s become popular to say that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to get really good at anything. If this is so, dreamers have a distinct advantage, since we can practice while others merely sleep, and can practice again, during […]

The origin and power of the shaman's drum
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
