Active Dreaming: Journeying Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom
Practical Magic for Living the Life of Your Dreams”
Active Dreaming is a way of being fully of this world while maintaining constant contact with another world, the world-behind-the-world, where the deeper logic and purpose of our lives are to be found. Active Dreaming offers three core areas of practice: talking and walking our dreams to bring energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life; shamanic lucid dreaming; and conscious living.
Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. They choose not to buy into self-limiting beliefs or the limited models of reality suggested by others. Active dreamers learn to grow a dream of possibility, a dream strong enough to take them beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight.
The Lions of Dreamland
By Justin Patrick Moore - April 12, 2011
This book could have just as easily been called "Community Dreaming", and therein lies its strength. I see it as a sequel to one of his previous books "The Three Only Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination". Where that book gave the individual a useful toolkit for opening themselves up to the deeper workings of the multidimensional universe, "Active Dreaming" sets the stage for taking those personal journeys out into the community. This is of great importance. In doing so, Robert is gently helping people reach out to and create something he calls, "The Place of the Lion". What is the Place of the Lion? Through one of the stories Robert tells he shows that it is a place of "wild freedom" where a person can see past the limiting consensual hallucinations which have placed cages around and bars around what humanity thinks is possible.
The book is filled with inspiring stories and practical exercises. Personally, my favorite section is the appendix,... read more
Another Excellent Robert Moss Book
By Alice Finnamore - April 18, 2011
This latest book is Robert Moss at his best, offering an adventure book on dreaming that is accessible to the newest dreamer, yet valuable to the seasoned practitioner of dreamwork. Full of stories and examples of how dreams have changed people's lives, the book includes new games as well as detailed instructions to many of Moss' dream workshop exercises. All that is missing is a dream group to practise them with, so Moss outlines how to start a dream group of one's own.
Something new in this volume is a chapter on working with children and their dreams. Moss offers nine keys to helping children access the power of their dreams, concluding with instruction on what NOT to do with a child's dream. Never say it is "just" a dream, and never try to interpret a child's dream.
Many people ask how to become a lucid dreamer, that is, how can we wake up inside our dreams and do whatever we want. Like Robert Moss, I do not seek so-called lucid dreaming. As he puts it, "The... read more
Coming Out Party for Active Dreaming
By Wanda Burch "Wanda Burch" - June 29, 2011
If you are new to Robert Moss' books, this book, along with CONSCIOUS DREAMING, is a must-have for beginning your Robert Moss bookshelf and a perfect companion for all the rest of Robert's insightful books on dreaming.
ACTIVE DREAMING: JOURNEYING BEYOND SELF-LIMITATION TO A LIFE OF WILD FREEDOM is a coming-out party for the Active Dreaming technique pioneered by Robert Moss and familiar to anyone who has ever read one of his books, attended one of his workshops, shared dreams on-line or trained in one of his fabulous Dream Teacher Training courses. It is a guide for living your dreams, dreaming your stories awake, and consciously living the lessons learned in the night with your whole self aware of the waking-in-dreaming and dreaming-awake world around you. Active dreaming is living your story as part of the Universe and learning how to confront challenges instead of running away from them.
Robert Moss approaches the over-used and misunderstood phrase, Lucid... read more
