Life feeling a bit grey? Sounds True talks to shamanic dream explorer Robert Moss, pioneer of “active dreaming,” who explains the power of dreaming techniques to help yourself and others:
When people think about dreams in our society at all and try to talk about them, they typically talk as if dreaming is a passive activity. You go to sleep and you have a dream or maybe a dream has you.
But we can be active dreamers in a couple of very interesting and important senses. We can learn to be active about entering the dream state—this approach goes beyond the more familiar version of lucid dreaming by teaching us how we can start out conscious or lucid and enter the dream state from that conscious level and stay conscious through the whole experience.
You learn to reenter that dream consciously, go back and find the dream, talk to a character, resolve a problem, go beyond a terror—learn how to use your personal dreams as portals to places of healing and imagination and doorways into the multidimensional universe.
