Active Dreaming: Journeying Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom

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.

  1. The Lions of Dreamland 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, “Dreamland: Documents of a Possible Future.” This dreamland has nothing to do with Area 51 (thank goodness), but shows a neutral society, or “Switzerland of the Mind” which has come into existence after a technological Singularity wreaks soul loss and ecocide across the planet. The Priestess-Scientists who guide this community are using the power of dreams to help repair the planet. This book will certainly benefit those who take the time to not only read it, but work with the material laid out in its pages. It is accessible to the beginner in dreamwork, while also giving some new games to the frequent fliers who have already been playing at this stuff for awhile. Coming from one of my favorite publishers, the dream elucidated between these covers really does give a road map to a new world.

  2. Another Excellent Robert Moss Book 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 easiest way to become a lucid, or conscious, dreamer is to start out lucid and stay that way: in other words, to enter conscious dreaming from a waking or semi-conscious state” (p. 49). This is the essence of Moss’ work, to teach us how to dream while awake.As I read this book, I knew I would be back into it many times, to find inspiration and instruction for my own dream adventures. Meanwhile, I was jotting down thoughts and quotes for further research and contemplation inside my journal.Thank you, Robert, for another excellent read.

  3. Coming Out Party for Active Dreaming 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 Dreaming, in the way it was intended, as a method “for shifting consciousness in order to enter non-ordinary reality for purposes that include the care and recovery of the soul.” This approach allows each of us to wake up to our dreams and to discover the shaman’s power within each of our individual lives. This is the power that allows us to play, to gain access to the limitless capability for healing within our dreaming imagination, to solve problems, to see our future, to change what we do not like and to enhance that which makes us strong and capable. Ultimately, practicing the techniques of Active Dreaming grants us a Passport for responsible action on our planet Earth. Robert would remind each of us, in taking responsibility in our waking and sleeping, to “wake up and dream.” And who can resist journeying beyond self-limitation to a life of wild freedom? I can’t.
