Every day, consciously or unconsciously, we’re in the school of life.
Every night, whether or not we remember, we have access to the university of many lives, a greater School of Soul.
That’s because our dreams carry the voice of our soul — the wisdom we came into this life with, but have forgotten. They offer us a powerful form of “soul remembering,” our inner knowing about how to heal, grow and live fully and joyously.
Australian Aborigines believe that our personal dreams open doorways into the Dreamtime, the deeper reality from which the events and circumstances of our lives come, as well as the place where we can encounter our ancestors and touch into our spiritual powers.
Dreaming is also traveling, offering us paths to limitless adventure and possibility.
In dreams, we slip free from the normal constraints of space and time and from our everyday thought patterns and perceptions. We travel to places where our departed are at home, and to cities and schools and pleasure palaces on various levels of the Imaginal Realm, the realm of true imagination.
Dream shamans, mystics and creators have long practiced the art of journeying consciously into this world-behind-the-world, and we can learn similar practices through the techniques of Active Dreaming — a way of slipping into the Imaginal Realm while awake. (Read more about this powerful practice below.)
In dreams, we go beyond the veil of everyday consciousness. And if we pay attention to what appears behind those veils, we start to notice a play of coincidence in our waking life, as the powers of the deeper world come through to prod or tickle or goad us awake.
Yet, dreaming is not fundamentally about what happens during sleep (though there are great gifts in spontaneous sleep dreams that show us aspects of ourselves and our worlds that the waking mind doesn’t see).
Dreaming is essentially about waking up to the bigger story and the deeper logic of our lives — and of the world.
In this 7-month, ever-deepening virtual adventure with one of the world’s most revered dream shamans, Robert Moss, you’ll be invited to find your personal answers to the eternal questions that shape your bigger story:
Who am I? Where do I come from? What is my sacred purpose in this world and beyond this world?
You’ll receive practical guidance to keep your body and soul together on the roads of everyday life. And you’ll learn from the stories of those who dreamed strong in tough times, including Harriet Tubman, whose dream visions guided her in helping 300 escaping slaves to get to freedom before the American Civil War.
You’ll also learn from a forgotten master, Synesius of Cyrene. This philosopher bishop of North Africa taught — as the Roman empire collapsed into chaos — that we must use dreams as our personal oracle, allow no one else to tell us what our dreams mean, and open to the Divine source that “in dreams makes us fruitful with its own courage.”
You’ll be led on a dream journey with Medatia, the first dream shaman of the Makiritare of Venezuela, as he ascends ten levels of the Upper World to gain the wisdom and power to bring his people and his world back from the Dark Times.
And you’ll dream travel to the depths of the Underworld with the female shaman of the Nishan River in Mongolia, who braved the Lord of Death in his inner keep to rescue a captive soul.
You’ll be inspired by stories from dreamers today and from the whole human odyssey to encourage and incite you to apply the gifts of dreaming to bring more of soul into life and to survive and thrive.
This is destined to be the most exciting and powerful virtual dream journeying program Robert has ever offered!
Active dreamers work with the signs and symbols and synchronicities of everyday life as well as with night dreams, conscious visions and liminal states of consciousness.
In this 7-month adventure, you’ll learn techniques to help you become a dreamer 24/7, by playing with all these states of mind.
You’ll grow, week by week, in your practice of Active Dreaming, Robert’s powerful and original synthesis of modern dreamwork, shamanic journeying and creative imagination for which there are three essential modes.
First, Active Dreaming is a way of talking and walking your dreams, of bringing energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life. You’ll learn how to create a safe space where you can share dreams of the night and dreams of life with others, receive helpful feedback, and encourage each other to move towards creative and healing action.
Second, Active Dreaming is a method of shamanic lucid dreaming. It’s founded on the understanding that you don’t need to go to sleep in order to dream. The easiest way to become a conscious or lucid dreamer is to start out lucid and stay that way.
You’ll learn to embark on conscious or lucid dreaming from the liminal state of awareness known as hypnagogia, when you’re between sleep and waking, or between waking and sleep. This becomes simple everyday dream yoga.
You’ll learn to use the doorway of a remembered dream to embark on a wide-awake and conscious dream journey. You’ll learn to embark on mutual and group adventures in conscious dreaming, journeying into non-ordinary reality with one or more partners and bringing back gifts and mutual confirmation.
Third, Active Dreaming is a way of conscious living. This requires you to reclaim your inner child, and the child’s gift of spontaneity, play and imagination. It requires you to claim the power of naming and defining your life project. It invites you to discover and follow the natural path of your energies.
It calls you to remember and tell and live your bigger story in such a way that it can be heard and received by others. It’s about navigating by synchronicity and receiving the chance events and symbolic pop-ups on your daily roads as clues to a deeper order.
Beyond this, it’s about grasping that the energy you carry and the attitudes you choose have a magnetic effect on the world around you, drawing or repelling encounters and circumstances.
The secrets to unlocking your Dreamtime as a time for “soul remembering” are best learned from a master guide.
Robert Moss is one of the world’s most respected and beloved dream experts, who has inspired hundreds of thousands around the world with his books and workshops during a lifetime teaching on this subject.
Robert was initiated early into the life of a modern-day shaman, having three near-death experiences as a child, which provided him with early access to other realms. Some of his own dreaming capacities also come from his Australian upbringing and his early learnings from native aborigines. This led to a lifetime committed to mastering the Dreamtime and sharing what he has learned.
He has since traveled the world sharing his teachings, acting as an independent scholar. His dozen books on dreaming, shamanism and imagination have been heralded as essential reading for those on this path.
In his popular short virtual Shift Network course, Dreaming Into the Dreamtime, he harvested wisdom and insight from seven world traditions of dreaming for healing and transformation.
In this advanced course — over 24 classes — he’ll range deeper and wider, drawing from creative masters and scientists of consciousness, from Paleolithic cave artists to the pioneers of quantum physics and Many Worlds theory, from dream yogis to Jane Roberts and her mentor Seth.
You’ll go deep with Western masters, studying word magic and “mutual visioning” with William Butler Yeats, “far memory” with Joan Grant, psychic defense and astral travel with Dion Fortune.
You’ll travel back to ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt for apotropaic rituals to turn away negative energies. You’ll go to the shrines of Sequana in France and Nodens in England, and along the deer tracks of Elen of the Ways, to revive ancient Celtic modes of dream incubation and healing.
And, you’ll share in Robert’s cutting-edge new work involving parallel worlds, time travel, reality creation and exploration of the multiverse and the multidimensional self.
You may awaken to the fact that some of your dreams are glimpses of continuous lives you are living in parallel worlds, where you made different choices. You may then find it possible to reach into those parallel lives and bring gifts and lessons for your current life.
You’ll be guided on dream journeys to meet members of your soul family who are living in other times and other dimensions. You’ll come to understand that all times — past, future and parallel — are accessible to you now, and may be revisioned and reshaped for the better.
You’ll also discover how to travel, hyper-awake and conscious, to connect with other aspects of your multidimensional self, and with a Higher Self at the hub of these many lives.
Should you choose to join this true School of Soul, you’ll not only experience what’s described here, but much more, because Robert is constantly creating new journeys and experiments and bringing fresh stories, the fruits of his work as a teacher in many countries and of his deep and constant research.
And perhaps the best part is that you’ll engage in these journeys and experiments within a remarkably supportive, wise and adventurous global community of fellow dream explorers who are experiencing them with you and sharing their results, breakthroughs and insights. In previous trainings, we’ve witnessed the online community lead into profound, enduring friendships.
When you join Robert in this most comprehensive virtual dream journeying adventure he’s offered yet, you’ll discover:
Your invitation to this phenomenal virtual dream adventure calls you to a path of real magic, which is the art of bringing gifts from another world into this one.
Follow this road, and you’ll find you can hear the wise and wondrous voice of your soul calling to you clearly — night and day — guiding you in expanding your life in the most exciting and joyous ways.
What’s that? You’re going through a dream drought? And you don’t notice much magic in the round of your days? Don’t worry: you have a world-class dreamer inside you who is ready to help you reopen your dream gates.
This is the child in you who is the beautiful dreamer and knows the magic of making things up. She is going to come out to play with you. And she will be accompanied by the Wise One, a timeless aspect of your Greater Self — your soul, remembering.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
During this 7-month program, Robert will take you on an exciting and life-enriching virtual adventure as he shares insights, skills and practices you’ll need to discover and cultivate expanded possibilities for your life and heal and grow in the ways that your soul guides you — through nighttime dreams and Active Dreaming.
Each weekly, LIVE teaching, dialogue and “play” session will build upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles that can allow you to travel into hidden realms of the multiverse and the multidimensional self for personal healing, enlightenment and initiation.
Dreaming is fun and is also a discipline, which means you get good at and ascend to higher levels through practice, practice, practice. We start with a high-octane introduction to the core techniques of Active Dreaming, with guidance on how to handle issues that have prevented many from joining in the dream adventure: absence of dream recall, nightmares and night terrors, difficulty in visualizing, self-limiting habits and beliefs.
You’ll find these first classes fast and frisky. If you are new to this, you’ll find your wing feathers growing back. If you are already an advanced practitioner — and we have certified teachers of Active Dreaming in this course — you’ll find you are growing your power to assist and inspire others, in any life situation.
We’ll study the reasons why so many in our society have been suffering a chronic or transitional dream drought. You’ll be invited to journey to the kind of Cosmic Video Store where you can pick up some of the dreams you’ve lost.
Then we’ll introduce our signature method of dream sharing. Lightning Dreamwork is a simple 4-step process that enables you to create a safe space to share dreams or personal stories, exchange helpful feedback and guidance towards action that you can practice just about anywhere, anytime.
You’ll discover how to:
When shamans go dreaming, they are often accompanied by spirit allies who appear in animal form. Developing a strong working connection with power animals will give essential guidance and protection. This is one of the quickest ways to raise your vitality and discern the natural path of your energy. You may already be working with animal guardians. You will discover new things and may be able to expand your shamanic menagerie. You may find it includes mythic beasts and beloved pets that have shared your life.
You’ll discover how to:
We’ll briefly review what different human cultures have looked for in dreams — from interaction with the gods to “day residue” in the dyspeptic shallows of the personal subconscious — and how dreams have been shared.
We’ll visit the booth of a Minoan dream interpreter whose shingle was a painting of a bull, and listen in as Jung encourages a patient to work a dream towards healing and resolution through active imagination.
You’ll discover nine keys to open the meaning of dreams:
The most important book about soul and dreaming that you will ever read is your own journal. Kept over many years, you’ll find it is a treasure chest. In this module, you’ll receive expert guidance on the art of creative journal keeping.
You are born to fly and in dreams you remember the soul has wings.
— Robert Moss, Dreamgates
Tinker Bell told Peter Pan, “Look for me in the place between sleep and awake. There you will always find me.” It’s no fairy story. In the history of science, as in many other fields, the liminal state of hypnagogia has been the solution state in which creative breakthroughs are made and inner guides are easily accessible.
This is an ideal launch pad for lucid dreaming and astral travel. It is recognized in dream yoga, as in the mystery traditions, that by learning to maintain a state of relaxed attention on the cusp of sleep, we develop heightened awareness and the ability to operate in more than one reality simultaneously.
The dreams you remember are your best portals for travel into the deeper reality, and your royal road to lucid dreaming. A dream is a journey; it is also a place. You went somewhere in your dream, near or far from the fields you know in your regular life. Because you have been to that place, you can find your way there again.
You’ll discover how to:
As we embark on adventures in other worlds, we need to be careful to stay grounded in this world, to establish and maintain good psychic boundaries and to discern different entities and energies we may encounter. This week, we’ll consult with Dion Fortune, a true priestess of the Western way, on how to prevent psychic intrusion and stay away from bad neighborhoods.
Our earliest records of the work of a dream interpreter come from ancient Mesopotamia. Here the person you asked for help with your dream was called the “questioner.” Dreaming was understood to be close kin to divination. In Ur or Uruk, the questioner may decide to go beyond the dreamer’s imperfect recollection of a dream into the fuller dream experience, by transporting herself to the place where the dream action unfolded and asking questions inside that space. A tablet describes the questioner as “one who lies at a person’s head.”
— Robert Moss, The Secret History of Dreaming
You are a natural psychic of a high order in your dreams, when you let down your left-brain inhibitions and just do it. You routinely practice precognition, clairvoyance, telepathy. Such powers are sometimes described as examples of ESP. Today scientists are reviving a better term invented by the great Victorian scientist of the unseen, Frederick Myers: supernormal. Scientists like Dean Radin maintain that quantum entanglement means that supernormal phenomena are inevitable.
Every night, your dream self goes ahead of your waking self, scouting out challenges and opportunities that lie on the roads ahead. This is part of our human survival kit. Once you wake up to the fact that you dream events before they happen in regular life, you can graduate to the good stuff, which is changing your possible future for the better and becoming co-creator of your reality.
A kairomancer is someone who is ready to recognize the special moments when synchronicity is at work — and to seize on the revelation or opportunity that is now available. To be a kairomancer, you must be open to new experience, willing to set aside plans, grateful for secret handshakes and surprises, and ready to honor your special moments of revelation by taking appropriate action.
This week, we’ll learn from an American master of navigating by synchronicity — Mark Twain, no less — who will also remind us never to leave home (or return to it) without our sense of humor. And we’ll play a wildly entertaining and instructive digital version of Robert’s celebrated Coincidence Card Game that will give you instant guidance on a life issue.
We need to be more literal about dreams and more symbolist about everyday life. Walk your environment with the right kind of awareness, and you’ll notice that the world is constantly giving you messages in the form of signs and symbols. You can play fun games any day by receiving these messages — the vanity plate on that car, that overheard snatch of conversation from a stranger, that chance encounter — as tarot cards being dealt to you by the world. A tarot deck has 78 cards; in Sidewalk Tarot, the number is unlimited.
You hear the ripple of water and smell the flowering gardens before you reach the outer gate of the House of Healing. You are reminded that you must lay down old mindsets in order to get to the place of transformation. And you must bring your dream of invitation. You will be cleansed and prepared for a direct encounter with the sacred guide and healer. After this, you will be different, and ready to learn the arts of soul healing.
The body believes in images. Abundant evidence from medical science and sports psychology demonstrates that the body responds to an image as it might do to a physical event, pump out self-generated pharmaceuticals according to where we place our attention. Any image that belongs to you can be a source of power and healing, even the scary stuff you would rather keep in a locked box. The trick is to learn how to develop your personal imagery so it can help you to get well and stay well. Your body is waiting for you to get good at this.
You know this in your heart and in your gut: soul loss — the loss of vital energy and identity as the result of pain or trauma or wrenching life choices — is at the root of many of our existential complaints. We lose vital soul energy through pain and trauma and heartbreak, through wrenching life choices, and by giving up on our big dreams and ceasing to live the soul’s purpose.
When we lose the energy of soul, the magic goes out of life. We are often fatigued for no apparent reason, we can’t experience joy or love, and there is a gaping hole in us that we try to fill with addictive behaviors. Soul loss can put us in the procession of the walking dead, playing the roles that other people cast us for, no longer knowing who we are or why we are in this world.
As a time traveler, you can journey to a younger self in her own Now time. As a voice in her mind, you can provide the encouragement and counsel she may need at a time of unbearable pain or challenge. You can be the friend and protector she lacked when her need was great. From this can flow tremendous healing for both of you, for you in your present time and for her in her own time.
In the House of Healing, you’ll discover how to:
We can heal the body and our experience of the world by telling better stories about them. We can do this for others as well as ourselves. We can grow a bigger and better story — a healing image, a vision of life possibility, even a map to the next world — for someone who is bereft of images or stuck in an old, confining story.
You are becoming aware that you can step outside time and move towards the source of the events and circumstances that will be played out in your life. You can stir the quantum soup of possibilities, and select what will emerge into form and manifestation.
In the Faculty of Co-creation, you’ll be encouraged to build your own place of creation in the Imaginal Field, where you can entertain friends, converse with masters, and grow the life projects you wish to see manifest in your world. All of this is more important, and more practical, than we may be able to grasp in what Yeats called “the daily trivial mind." The poet in the soul of each of us knows why. It is because (as Tagore said), “the stronger the imagination, the less imaginary the results.” It is because imagination, working in the field of nonlocal mind, can create worlds.
The Inuit says that the spirits like “fresh words." They want to be entertained. They are easily bored with humans who go on repeating old formulas and old ways. When we bring something fresh and new into the world, we entertain the spirits and delight our own creative genius, and our lives are infused with natural magic, confirmed by the play of synchronicity. To create is to bring something new into the world. Dreams and twilight states of consciousness have inspired great scientists, inventors, musicians, writers and liberators of human possibility throughout history.
You have access to a Magic Library whose doors are never closed to you, through you may be required to show some ID and put down your baggage. How it looks and what it contains are conditioned by your interests and your passions. It could look like an art gallery, or a fashion museum, or a music school.
Within this space, you can have access to inspiration and information in any area that attracts you. There are guides available. They may include master teachers in any field. I meet a lot of dead writers here who are very much alive to me. Whether they are the spirits of those authors, or personality essences, or aspects of myself is less interesting to me than the creative discoveries they share with me and the surge of creative energy and direction I receive from these encounters.
In your version of the Magic Library, you may be able to find the Big Story you need for your life right now.
In this adventure you’ll:
When we take on a creative project — and its element of risk — and step out of whatever box we have been in, we draw supporting powers, especially the power that the ancients called the genius or the daimon. Most people understand this intuitively, even though we may fumble for an agreed language to describe it.
The Romans never described a person as a genius. They might say, "Apollonius has a genius" — i.e., a special relationship with a tutelary spirit. The word genius is related to gignere, which means to engender or "beget." It implies reproductive energy, the power of inseminating new life.
To choose and act creatively, we must be able to put our commonplace selves, with their reliance on structures and schedules, on one side, and make room for the source energy of the begetter.
In the School of Soul, we’ll learn essential things about co-creation:
When we wake up to the fact that the time is always Now, we are ready to become conscious time travelers. We can learn to do more than simply visit the past and the future. We can seek to establish mental communication with personalities in the possible past and the possible future for mutual benefit. We can look in on our parallel selves.
Living parallel lives that we glimpse in dreams are entirely real, according to the Many Worlds theory in physics. We can seek to rise above the perspective of these personalities to that of a Self on a higher level who can read the patterns of connection and help to re-weave them for the better.
Your present life is intimately related to dramas and relationships that are playing out in other times — past, future and parallel. This is your invitation to visit a very special location in the multiverse to learn more about your connection with other personalities in your multidimensional family.
In the process, you will learn about reality creation in the Imaginal Realm, the vast plane of reality where human imagination works with higher intelligence to build enduring structures for healing, learning and initiation. The House of Time has been developed through the active imagination of dream explorers and archaeologists who have traveled here. It stands on ancient foundations.
In this high adventure, you’ll be invited to:
Of all the guides and mentors that may become available to us in a lifetime, the most important is a friend of the soul that will never lie to us and will never judge us. It’s the Higher Self, which the Sufis call, beautifully, the soul of the soul. Ultimately we can only make peace between the many aspects of ourselves by opening a direct and conscious connection with the Self on a higher level — the Self that is no stranger.
The Yoruba have a fascinating teaching about this. They say that we have a “double in heaven” who watches us from a higher level while we operate down below as “the double in the marketplace." From life to life, they say, we switch roles with that other self.
In her Oversoul Seven trilogy, Jane Roberts gave us an equally fascinating picture of our relations with an Oversoul that is responsible for supervising and connecting a family of personalities living in different times, past and future.
This week, we’ll explore these models, and journey to:
You are in the afterlife right now. You died to another world in order to come here. This will become very clear to you in the School of Soul. You’ll find that the space you enter after death and the space you are in before birth are closely related. You come from the dream world into the physical world at the moment of birth. But few of us are born with clear memories of where we were before, and those of us who remember will have to withstand not only the trauma of the birth canal but the amnesiac influences of most of those around us.
This week, you’ll:
Part of the secret logic of our lives may be that our paths constantly interweave with those of numberless parallel selves, sometimes converging or even merging, sometimes diverging ever farther. The gifts and failings of these alternate selves — with all the baggage of their separate lives — may influence us when our paths converge, in ways that we generally fail to recognize.
We can travel into the life experiences of personalities in other time periods with whom we are connected in our multidimensional family of selves. We do this spontaneously in our night dreams. When we learn to do it consciously, our view of life and possibility expands tremendously.
In physics, the Many Worlds hypothesis advances the idea that we are living right now in one of countless parallel worlds, and that they interact with each other. Physicist Brian Greene speculates that we all have "endless doppelgangers" leading parallel lives in parallel universes. When you develop the skills of Active Dreaming, you can explore this experientially — and learn how to bring gifts and lessons from a parallel world into this one.
In this wildly exciting class, you’ll discover how to:
We must refocus our collective memory. The necessity of this has never been greater as we discover that the path of “progress” is extinguishing the very conditions for life on earth.
— Marija Gimbutas, The Civilization of the Goddess
Dreams open authentic and timely connections to the ancestors, offering us the chance to heal the wounds of the past and affect cultural soul recovery. Dream archaeology is a discipline that enables us to access the living past, to enter into direct communication with the keepers of ancestral wisdom and heal the collective and cultural soul loss that is a feature of our age.
The practice of dream archaeology involves reclaiming authentic knowledge of ancestral traditions — including those that may have been buried or suppressed in the course of history — through a combination of careful research and experiential journeying across time and between dimensions. The dream archeologist combines the skills of the shaman, the scholar and the detective.
The ancestors are calling, calling. We are talking about ancestors in three senses: the ancestors of your bloodlines, and of the lands where you live or travel, and of your soul family across time and place.
You’ll discover how to:
You are called into the woods to a grove where many different trees stand in a circle as if in council. You know some but not all. One is calling you now. You enter the tree, and the dream of the heartwood. You ask for your tree name, and the wisdom this tree has for you. This is how your expedition into Celtic realms begins.
This week, you’ll:
The Faculty of Dream Archaeology advises that the dreams and journeys, the memories and desires of the group, along with the play of shelf elves and synchronicity, will shape the content of the final class offered in this cycle. We may find ourselves traveling to the future or the past, to specific sites or through mythic portals. We’ll remember, as Seth advised, that we “stand at the center of all times” and that, as Black Elk counseled, the center of the universe is wherever we are.
I have a dream: that we will again become a society of dreamers. In a dreaming culture, dreams are valued and celebrated. The first business of the day, for most people, is to share dreams — dreams from the night, and dreams of life — and seek to harvest their guidance. The community joins in manifesting the energy and insight of dreams in waking life. In a dreaming culture, nobody says, “It’s only a dream" or “In your dreams, mister.” It is understood that dreams are both wishes (“I have a dream”) and experiences of the soul.
At the end of the deep adventures you have shared over seven months, it is Robert’s hope that you will feel inspired and empowered to go among others as a dream ambassador, sharing the gifts of what you’ve learned and helping to midwife the rebirth of a dreaming society. If dreams were honored throughout our society, our world would be different, and magical.
1. Dream Partners
Personal relations will be richer, more intimate and creative. There will be less room for pretense and denial. Sharing dreams, we overcome the taboos that prevent us from expressing our real needs and feelings and open ourselves to those of others.
2. Family Life & Home Entertainment
“What did you dream?” is the first question asked around the table in a family of dreamers. In our dreaming culture, families everywhere will share dreams and harvest their gifts of story, mutual understanding and healing. Parents will listen to their children’s dreams and help them to confront and overcome nightmare terrors.
Best of all, they will learn from their children, because kids are wonderful dreamers. This might be bad for TV ratings but it would bring back the precious arts of storytelling, helping us learn to tell our own story (a gift with almost limitless applications) and to recognize the larger story of our lives.
3. Dream Healing
In our dreaming culture, dream groups will be a vital part of every clinic, hospital and treatment center and doctors will begin their patient interviews by asking about dreams as well as physical symptoms. Health costs will plummet, because when we listen to our dreams, we receive keys to self healing. Dreams often alert us to possible health problems long before physical symptoms develop; by heeding those messages, we can sometimes avoid manifesting those symptoms. Dreams give us an impeccable nightly readout on our physical, emotional and spiritual health.
4. The Care of Souls
As a dreaming culture, we will remember that the causes of disease are spiritual as well as physical. We will use dreams to facilitate soul recovery. In dreams where we encounter a younger version of ourselves, or are drawn back to a scene from childhood, we are brought to recognize a deeper kind of energy loss, that shamans call soul loss.
Through trauma or abuse, through addiction or great sadness, we can lose a part of our vital soul energy. So long as it is missing, we are not whole and the gap may be filled by sickness or addiction. Dreams show us what has become of our lost children and when it is timely to call them home.
5. Dream Incubation
In a dreaming culture, we will remember to “sleep on it,” asking dreams for creative guidance on school assignments, work projects, relationships and whatever challenges are looming in waking life. When we seek dream guidance, we must be ready for answers that go beyond our questions, because the dream source is infinitely deeper and wiser than what Yeats called the “daily trivial mind.”
6. Using Dream Radar
Dreaming, we routinely fold time and space and scout far into the future. As a dreaming culture, we will work with dream precognition on a daily basis — and develop strategies to revise the possible futures foreseen in dreams for the benefit of ourselves and others.
7. Building Communities
When we share dreams with others, we recognize something of ourselves in their experiences. This helps us to move beyond prejudice and build heart-centered communities.
8. The Art of Dying
The path of the soul after death, say the Plains Indians, is the same as the path of the soul in dreams — except that after physical death, we won’t come back to the same body. Dreamwork is a vital tool in helping the dying to prepare for the conditions of the afterlife.
9. Walking the Path of Soul
The greatest gift of dreaming is that it facilitates an encounter between the little self and the big Self. Active dreaming is a vital form of soul remembering: of reclaiming knowledge that belonged to us, on the levels of soul and spirit, before we entered this life experience. So much of the harm we do to ourselves and others stems from the fact that we have forgotten who we are and what we are meant to become. Dreaming, we remember, and encounter authentic spiritual guides who will help us on our paths.
In addition to Robert’s transformative 7-month virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions. These bonus sessions complement the course — and promise to take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
Discover the mystical powers of trees through the story of Joan of Arc’s early encounter with her specially chosen trees in a French forest near where she grew up. Her affinity for these trees and ability to conjure visions in their presence earned her the name tree seer. What does it mean to be a tree seer, and how can it offer us guidance for our life? Renowned dream shaman Robert Moss answers these questions and shares the fascinating stories of how Joan of Arc used her tree seeing powers, his own personal experiences in the presence of her chosen trees as well as how you can adopt the practices of the tree seer to expand your visions for your life and the world around you.
Did you know that writing is a state of conscious dreaming? And that your nighttime dreams can give you some of your best writing ideas? In this insightful audio from renowned dream shaman Robert Moss you’ll discover ways to seed your nighttime dreams to provide you with themes, plots and prompts for your writing. You’ll also learn about the intimate connection between dreaming and writing that is centuries old, and how famous writers, including a priestess who was the first known writer and modern-day writer Graham Greene melded these two crafts in exciting and successful ways. Through historical accounts and his own life stories, Robert offers you a true invitation to greater creative power.
In the twenty-first century, I believe we will continue to find increasingly strong reasons to believe that some of the strange effects observed in the microscopic world exist not only in exotic realms, but also in the more intimate domain of human experience.
— Dean Radin, Entangled Minds
In this trailblazing conversation, Robert Moss will explore with Dean Radin how quantum effects observed at the heart of an atom may be playing in our lives on a human scale. Our science is catching up with ancient wisdom, and converting its discoveries into new technologies and changes in our lives at dizzying speed. We are living in a conscious and connected universe in which quantum entanglement — which Einstein dubbed “spooky action at a distance” — makes psi phenomena natural and even inevitable. Yogis, shamans and disciplined dreamers have long held the keys to time travel and first-hand experience of the multidimensional universe.
Dean Radin, PhD is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and Volunteer Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at AT&T Bell Labs, Princeton University, University of Edinburgh and SRI International. He is author or coauthor of over 250 technical and popular articles, three dozen book chapters, and three books including the award-winning The Conscious Universe, Entangled Minds and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award winner, Supernormal.
Discover three unique guided journeys from Robert that will open direct portals to the other side. These journeys are excerpted from the Quantum Dreaming course with Robert at The Shift Network.

Robert Moss changed my life and brought the indigenous wisdom I had long felt within my core but was unaware I had into a more magical waking and dreaming life!
I’ve been keeping a dream journal since I was a child. I never expected to learn SO much in such a short time in this course! I have a literal library of information to refer back to now. This course exceeded my expectations by introducing me to a way of dreaming that I never knew existed!
This course had high-quality content with an exceptional instructor in Robert Moss. He aided me to see more possibilities for my personal dreamwork, stimulated my imagination, and encouraged action to bring lessons from my dreams into my waking life. Robert showed us the importance that has been placed on dreaming in many cultures throughout history. With Robert’s guidance and encouragement we can bring the importance of dreaming to the Western world and prevent it from becoming a lost art.

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
– Claudia F., Medford, MA
