The Practice Of Active Dreaming
Course Level 1
Active dreaming, developed by Robert Moss, is a synthesis of dream work and modern shamanism. People from all walks of life, are waking up to the power of dreams and contributing to the healing of the web of dreaming.
The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche says: Rarely is the nature of dreaming itself investigated. When it is, the investigation leads to the mysterious processes that underlie the whole of our existence, not only our dreaming life.
It is okay if you do not recall your night dreams as in this course we practice active dreaming where we drum for our dreams. The drum invites our creativity and our heartbeat into the process.
Together we can building the bridge between worlds and reawaken a dreaming society where dreams are cherished and honored every day.

‘May our doors and gates and paths be open and the doors and gates and paths between worlds. May the doors and gates and paths for any who wish to do us or those we love any harm be closed. May it be so’. Robert Moss
MODULE 1: INTRODUCTION TO LIGHTENING DREAM WORK
We dream in many ways, and any dream may contain multiple levels of meaning. So to unfold the guidance of our dreams, and help others with their dreams, we need to master a range of techniques. There are many approaches to dreams, and all may have something to offer provided they honor the dreamer as the final authority on his or her dream. In this foundation class, we will learn a simple process for sharing a dream and receiving non-intrusive feedback and guidance toward action. We will introduce the nine keys for unlocking the insight of energy of our dreams.
MODULE 2: DREAM RE-ENTRY AND TRACKING
Dreams are real experiences, and the full meaning of a dream may be inside the dream itself- the dream experience, as opposed to the memory of the dream, which may be garbled or fragmentary. Dream Re-entry is the cure for nightmare terrors. Going back into a dream is also one of the easiest ways to become a conscious dreamer and embark on adventures in dream travel.
MODULE 3: DREAMING THE FUTURE
In dreams, we are all gifted psychics. we meet our romantic partners in dreams months, even years, before meeting them in waking life (though we may not realize what is going on). Every night in our dreams, we see future events, large and small. This gives us a wonderful opportunity to rehearse for challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. If we learn to check for precognitive elements in our dreams and to clarify our dream information, we develop a powerful navigational guidance system for everyday life. If we learn to take appropriate action to honor our dreams, we may be able to change the future for the better, for ourselves and others.
MODULE 4: DREAMING WITH THE DEPARTED
In dreaming, we have natural communication with the departed and travel into their realm. Dream encounters with our departed loved ones can bring blessed closure and healing. Sometimes the departed have important, life-helping messages for us. Sometimes they need help or guidance from us to deal with unfinished business and move on to higher planes.
MODULE 5: DREAMING WITH SPIRITUAL GUIDES
Dreaming, we have a direct line to the sacred, and through the dreamgates we encounter our authentic spiritual teachers in a larger reality. Sometimes this leads individual dreamers to align themselves with a specific tradition; sometimes it leads them away from it. Dreaming, we find ourselves in contact with the spirits of the land where we live, with our own ancestors, and with our larger spiritual family – and counterparts – in dimensions that transcend space and time.
MODULE 6: DREAMS OF HEALING
In night dreams, we have access to a personal doctor who makes house calls, provides an impeccable diagnosis of our physical, emotional and spiritual condition, and doesn’t charge a cent. Even better, our dreams offer us imagery we can use for self-healing and recovery. We can even learn to grow dream images to help others through the powerful Dream Transfer Technique.
Look to your experiences in dreams to know how you will fare in death. Look to your experience of sleep to discover whether or not you are truly awake. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
If the way of the sage is true, that we are all dreaming our world into being, then it has to apply not only to our private, personal universe but to the world at large. Alberto Villoldo
Because we are stars, we must walk the sky. Song Bushmen, Lion Shamans
It is an age old fact that God speaks, chiefly through dreams and visions. Jung
