The Dream Teacher Training is designed to prepare and empower gifted dreamers to apply the core techniques of Active Dreaming to many different environments and to bring through creativity and healing for individuals and communities.

The training is deep, challenging and wide-ranging.  It is, amongst other things, a training in leadership, time management, creative improvisation, communication and storytelling. You’ll learn how to open and maintain sacred space, how to cope with “chaos” factors, how to help people heal their relationships and revitalize their workspace – and remember and honor their soul’s purpose and travel between the worlds.

Some of our graduates go on to teach Dream School classes and workshops. Many marry the Active Dreaming techniques to an existing practice or community environment. Our graduates come from diverse backgrounds and include artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, producers and publicists as well as therapists, nurses, physicians, schoolteachers and social workers. What they share is a passion for dreaming and a passionate commitment to helping others to open to the gifts of healing, creativity, self-understanding and a larger life that become available through active dreaming.

At each level of the training, participants receive an original depth manual of practice. These three manuals have been written by Robert exclusively for our students and teachers. Graduates receive a certificate of completion.

QUANTUM DREAMING with Robert Moss

QUANTUM DREAMING
Shamanic Dreaming, New Science and Ancient Keys to the Multidimensional Universe

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org    425-844-9050

The findings of leading-edge physics have brought us scientific confirmation of the worldview of ancient shamans, mystics and dreamers, who have always known that there is a place beyond surface reality where all things are connected, a place beyond  time where all times are accessible, and that consciousness generates worlds.

In this high-octane new adventure, you will learn the skills of Active Dreaming, Robert’s original synthesis of primal shamanism and the best of contemporary dreamwork and  lucid dreaming techniques. Bring these powerful techniques together with ancient wisdom and new science, and you are ready to practice quantum dreaming, become a full citizen of the multidimensional universe and be present at the creation of your world.

You will find that you hold the secret of time travel. You can travel into the possible future, scouting challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. You can travel to the past and into parallel world. You will gain first-hand knowledge of the multidimensional universe that science is modeling – and you can use this to heal and thrive in your everyday life.

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.

Your dreams may also be glimpses of a continuous life your parallel self is leading in a parallel world, in which you made different choices. Physicist Brian Greene speculates that we all have "endless doppelgangers" leading parallel lives in parallel universes. When we develop the skills of quantum dreaming, you can explore this experientially - and learn how to bring gifts and lessons from a parallel world into this one. Through these excursions, you will grow a personal geography of the multiverse and accumulate first-hand data on the reality of parallel worlds

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.

The physicist and the shaman agree: we live in a conscious universe where everything is alive and connected, and mind and matter interweave. To live most fully in this universe, we must learn to navigate by synchronicity, poised to recognize and act in those special Kairos moments when the universe gets personal.  We’ll play wonderful games of coincidence that will put magic into any day. 

You will learn how:

  • To make dreams your creative studio To construct your private entrance to non-local mind and the Akashic Records

  • To dream a better future

  • To travel to past, future and parallel times

  • “Past life” and “other life” dramas may be influencing your present life and relationships

  • To develop positive imagery for healing and empowerment you can offer to others

  • To grow a vision of what your life will be if you manifest your heart’s desires, a vision so strong and rich that it wants to take root in the world

Embodied Anatomy: a 4-Day Advanced Training with Liam Bowler and Mike Hamm

Register for accommodations and meals:  Here

There is a gem in the mountain of your body; seek that mine. — Rumi
CREATE PERCEPTUAL DEPTH IN YOUR MOVEMENT & BODYWORK PRACTICE

This 4-day advanced training — set in a gorgeous, deep forest retreat center — is for bodyworkers and movement therapists who want to inhabit the knowledge of human anatomy more completely.
We will learn the architecture of a living body in 3-D: fascia and muscles, membranes and fluids, organs and nerves. We’ll also use this anatomy to explore the science of perception — how to touch, how to move, how to speak in a way that transforms the inner world of the persons in our care.

YOU ARE PERFECT FOR THIS WORKSHOP IF:
— You are bodyworker interested in movement disciplines.
— You are a mover interested in better hands-on skills.
— You want to help your clients discover and inhabit their bodies more fully.
— You have sensed the limits of standard anatomical models for the body.
— You are interested in the science of embryology, fascia, interoception, and embodied cognition.

EACH DAY OF THIS TRAINING INCLUDES:
- Classroom time including lecture and hands-on activities to help you precisely inhabit anatomy in a 3-dimensional, functional way.
- A spectrum of movement practices — some invigorating and challenging, some more cooling, subtle, relaxing, and lots in between — that will build off each other, and build off the anatomy you'll be learning. 
- Hands-on palpation and perception exercises: understanding structures and fascial architecture through your hands.
- Case-based learning to scale your work to your client perceptual abilities —> From subtle to dense, micro to macro, static to dynamic, practical to playful.
- Time to metabolize the information: via guided journaling exercises, and down time to walk, sit or spend with your classmates and instructors.
- Optional evening discussions and Q + A time
- Meal times, with the option of having some or all of your meals prepared by the excellent cook staff at Mosswood Hollow (they're a small, family-run retreat space, and their food is excellent, mostly local)

YOU WILL LEAVE THIS TRAINING WITH:
Greater anatomical clarity: Seeing and palpating structures in others, and feeling them move in yourself.
A variety of techniques to help you, and those in your care, access various levels of embodiment.
A better understanding of the methods of perception — outside in, inside up and cortex down — and the relative usefulness and limitations of those lenses in a therapeutic setting.
A plan for to apply this new knowledge to your current practice.
Probably some great professional connections and, quite possibly, some solid friendships :

DREAMING LIKE AN EGYPTIAN with Robert Moss

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - email mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org  425-844-9050

The ancient Egyptians understood that in dreams, our eyes are opened. Their word for dream, rswt, also means “awakening.” It was written with a symbol representing an open eye.

The Egyptians believed that the gods interact with us in dreams. They developed an advanced practice of conscious dream travel. Trained dreamers operated as seers, remote viewers and telepaths.

Through conscious dream travel, ancient Egypt’s “frequent flyers” explored the roads of the afterlife and the multidimensional universe. It was understood that true initiation and transformation takes place in a deeper reality accessible through the dream journey beyond the body. The dream journey could even take the traveler to the stars.

Dreamers as Star Travelers:

The dream guides of ancient Egypt knew that the dream journey may take the traveler to the stars — specifically to Sothis or Sirius, the “moist land” believed by Egyptian initiates to be the source of higher consciousness, the destination of advanced souls after death and the home of higher beings who take a close interest in Earth matters.

In the age of Cleopatra, dream schools flourished in the temples of Serapis, a god who melds the qualities of Osiris and Apis, the divine bull. Priests who specialized in dreaming were called the Learned Ones of the Magic Library. What marvelous promise is in that phrase! What profound recognition of the magic and wisdom that is available to us through dreaming!

– From The Secret History of Dreaming by Robert Moss
In this deep journey into an ancient tradition, you’ll:
Enter the dream temple of Anubis, the library of Thoth and the cave of Sekhmet.
Recognize and work with multiple energy bodies and soul vehicles.
Gain access into the Hall of the Gods and find your spiritual allies.
Enter the phoenix fire and practice rebirthing under the wings of Isis.

SOUL RECOVERY TRAINING with Robert Moss

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org    (425) 844-9050

Shamans understand that soul loss is the root of much illness and confusion in our lives. It may be caused by pain or trauma or heartbreak, by wrenching life choices, or by wimping out on our best and bravest dreams. It can reduce us to the condition of the walking dead, passionless and dreary, forever trying to fit in with other people's needs and expectations, lost to our own deeper purpose.

Soul Retrieval is a shamanic operation in which the practitioner journeys to bring back lost soul-parts and puts them into the client's body (typically by blowing into one or more of the energy centers, most often the heart or the crown of the head). Soul Recovery is a practice in which we help each other to become self-healers and function as our own shamanic practitioners - to gather and integrate our own families of selves and bring wholeness and vital energy into our lives.

Dream reentry frequently opens the road to soul recovery, because our dreams show us where our missing parts may have gone, and invite us to reach in and bring them back. By going back inside the dream of the "old place", we may be able to locate that lost aspect of our own identity and energy, and find the way to bring it back into our hearts and our lives. Typically, soul recovery of this kind will require reassurance and negotiation. Our younger self will need to be assured that we are safe and we are fun.

We must recognize that dream drought – a primary symptom of soul loss - is an epidemic in modern society.  This is a serious condition. The Iroquois say that if we have lost our dreams, we have lost our souls - at least, the part of our soul-self that is the dreamer and remembers the deeper life.   What do we do for a person who does not have a dream?  We’ll learn how to help the dream-deprived reopen the dreamgates, bring home the magical child, engage the spirit animals, connect with wise ancestors, and engage with the Higher Self.

In this powerful training at a magical site in the greenwoods, you’ll open gateways for healing and empowerment for yourself, for your friends in the dreaming family we’ll grow, and for those you are called to help in everyday life.

We’ll learn how to-         

  • Clear a space for soul healing through spiritual cleansing

  • Invoke helping spirits for our work

  • Set and maintain good psychic boundaries

  • Heal our relations with the dead and release unwanted energies of the dead

  • Reclaim vital energy and identity of younger selves

  • Grow a dream for someone in need of a dream

  • Bring back missing soul parts from the Lands of Lost Girls and Boys

  • Open or restore working connections with the animal spirits

  • Journey through the chakras to produce maps for energy work and soul healing

  • Perform shamanic soul retrieval (when appropriate) in safe and responsible ways

  • Engage in cultural soul recovery by connecting with wise ancestors of the traditions that are calling us

  • Move towards spiritual enthronement, which means embodying more of the Higher Self

  • Entertain our spirits with spontaneous art and performance, story-swapping and poetic enchantment.

On graduation, you will receive a certificate of completion.

What to bring:

  • Your journal

  • A bandanna or sleep shade for your eyes

  • A drum or rattle if you have one

  • A small quartz crystal or citrine

  • Some special stones

  • Objects that evoke happy memories of childhood (teddy bears always welcome)

  • Treats or snacks your child self would enjoy

Recommended reading: Robert Moss, Dreaming the Soul Back Home.

Note: We expect many more candidates for this training than there are places. Preference will be given to those who have already completed workshops and/or online courses with Robert. If you have not done so, please email Robert at mossdreams@gmail.com to clarify what you might need to do to be ready for this training.

DREAMING WITH JUNG with Robert Moss

DREAMING WITH JUNG
Learning from the Dream Shaman of Switzerland

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - email mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org  425-844-9050

Jung labored to bring together the best of Western science and scholarship with ancient ways of soul travel and soul remembering. Throughout his life, he was guided by dreams and synchronicity, and in this class, we will learn from his practice rather than his theories.

We’ll journey, like Jung, through the many-tiered House of the Soul. We’ll walk with the Sacred Guide, as Jung walked with his Philemon. We’ll meet the Shadow. We’ll discover that dreams unlock the limitless field of nonlocal mind he called the collective unconscious.

We’ll develop field perception, as Jung practiced that as he watched the movements of wind and water, of a fox or a beetle, as he counseled his clients by Lake Zurich.

The Making of a Modern Dream Shaman:

Reading Jung’s Red Book, we see the enormity of the price Jung paid for his wisdom, and come to appreciate the extent of his courage and eventual self-mastery. This is a record of a thoroughly shamanic descent to the Underworld, and of a long test and initiation in houses of darkness from which lesser minds and feebler spirits might never have managed to find their way back.

Out of the shamanic depth of his personal experience, grounded in science and scholarship and the practice of counseling, Jung crafted a depth psychology in which dreams are central.

As dream shaman, Jung knew and insisted that dreams show us what the soul wants in life. He wrote that “All day long I have exciting ideas and thoughts. But I take up in my work only those to which my dreams direct me.” He was perennially willing both to be mobilized by dreams and to accept course correction from them.

– From Dreaming the Soul Back Home by Robert Moss

In this new adventure, melding scholarship with depth experience and shamanic journeying you’ll learn how to:

  • Follow the creative leads and research assignments your dreams set for you.

  • Learn how to develop any image that comes to you as a source of guidance and healing through active imagination.

  • Walk and talk with a sacred guide, as Jung walked with Philemon.

  • Journey through many levels of the House of Your Life.

  • Recognize the play of the archetypes in your life.

  • Read the sign language of the world and navigate by synchronicity.

WRITING AS A STATE OF ACTIVE DREAMING with Robert Moss

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - email mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org  425-844-9050

If you've ever been there, you long to be there again. It's what athletes call the Zone. It's that sweet place where time moves as fast or slow as you want, and creative connections are made effortlessly. It's the state of relaxed attention in which the muse or the creative daimon draws close and whispers in your ear. It's the borderland beyond the tame fields and picket fences of the mind, where it's easy for the Big story hunting you to find you.

This adventure in creative imagination will help you find fresh and delightful ways to tap into your creative source, and tell the stories that want to be told through you. We'll learn how to use powerful and original techniques of Active Dreaming techniques to go beyond blocks and move seamlessly into creative flow. We’ll turn dreams and life memories into stories, poems and scripts. Our practice will include timed writing exercises, story-swapping, play-acting, shamanic excursions to a Secret Library and other wonderful games to release our inner writer and creator. We’ll all be nourished and nurtured as we grow a supportive circle of creative friends.

Dancing with the Bear: Reclaiming the Arts of Dream Healing with Robert Moss

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATIONS, and MEALS:  Here
Questions - email mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org  425-844-9050

Don’t cry little one
Don’t cry little one
The Bear is coming to dance for you
The Bear is coming to dance for you

(Mohawk Iroquois song)

     The Bear is the great medicine animal of North America and in Native tradition, the most powerful healers are those called by the Bear in dreams and visions. In ancient Europe, the Bear was the king of beasts, and there was a sacred kinship between bears and humans that we can trace through the paleolithic caves of southern France. The medieval clergy demonized the bear and inspired a campaign to exterminate it, documented in the recent work of the French historian, Michel Pastoureau. In this adventure in shamanic dreaming and healing, we will discover that the great Medicine Bear lives on in France, and that its energies are available for transformation!. 
    We’ll reclaim ancestral wisdom, call on the power of the animal spirits and embark on shamanic journeys to places of healing and transformation in the world-behind-the-world.
     We’ll learn that dreaming is medicine in many ways. Our dreams show us what is going on inside our bodies and what we need to stay well. When we do become ill, our dreams give us fresh and powerful imagery for self-healing. By working with personal imagery – and changing the images in positive ways – we can actually create a new blueprint for the body. When we learn to go back inside our dreams and dream them onward, we open paths of healing for others and ourselves. We’ll discover that active dreaming is central to soul recovery – reclaiming vital energy we lost through pain or heartbreak, guilt or addiction. 

We’ll learn to grow healing stories, and how to bring a dream to someone who needs a dream. We’ll grow the sacred space and compassionate circle energy that make the extraordinary easy. We’ll honor our healing journeys through spontaneous ritual, art, storytelling and performance and play wonderful games.

Wise Women’s Weekend Retreat with Amy Edelstein

Wise Women’s Weekend Retreat with Amy Edelstein

If you are already registered for the workshop, you can book your room and meals  here  

These days are challenging for women. We’ve gained rights, freedoms, professional positions. And we’ve seen the limitations of those in culture. We’ve discovered some inner freedom and felt conflicted as we try to “do it all.” We love our children, our partners, our families, our friends yet often feel an ache or loneliness for something we can’t quite put our fingers on.

If this resonates with you, I invite you to join an extraordinary group of women
April 1st-2nd in Duvall, WA, for an immersion weekend.

We will go deep in meditation to create some space and fertilize inner ground for new growth. We will do personal contemplation so each and every individual can learn to listen deeply for her own openings and intimations of the next personal step. We will engage in powerfully illuminating exploration and dialogue process to expand our worldviews and sense of the possible.

By the end of the weekend, you will find yourself profoundly inspired, with a sense of how to access intuition and wisdom, more calm and at peace. You’ll have the support of others who are on a similar journey of life discovery, and you’ll have a sense of how you can continue to move forward.

Come to this weekend retreat
With your decks cleared of urgent to-do’s so you can give yourself time to be.
 Willing to let yourself discover an inner support.
 Intent to listen and learn what gives strength and wisdom to yourself & others.

Amy Edelstein has been teaching spiritual empowerment around the world for almost 20 years. She is the founder of the Inner Strength Foundation, which runs mindfulness programs for over 1200 inner city high school students and author of several books including Love, Marriage & Evolution.

Medicine of Belonging with Susan Pullen and Dr. Greg Yasuda

We are inextricably connected to our environment and what ails us ails the world. Our personal and collective healing is interdependent. Many of us struggle to feel connected and at home with each other.  At the same time, the social climate has in some ways become less welcoming. 

Never before have there been so many people in this world and never before have so many of us felt isolated and alone. Yet we are social creatures who thrive on connection and community in order to be optimally healthy and happy.

 This retreat will explore how we can create a place of belonging for ourselves and each other where we feel seen, heard, and valued.  By weaving together deep conversation, poetry, myth and ritual, this retreat will explore how we can create a place of belonging for ourselves and each other. From this place, the essence of who we are can be perceived by others and mirrored back to us, we can be authentically ourselves and be received, we can see that we are not alone in our struggles. 

 This type of healing can only happen within a community, and this is a powerful medicine – the Medicine of Belonging.

Dr. Greg Yasuda and Susan Pullen are committed to creating communities for healing and self-discovery. Dr. Greg is a naturopathic physician and teacher. Susan is a life coach, energy healer and shamanic practitioner.

Dreaming with Island Woman

DREAMING WITH ISLAND WOMAN
Learning from Indigenous Dreamways

In the Mohawk language, the word for shaman or healer is ratetshents, which means “dreamer”. Robert’s life was changed by his visionary encounters with the ancient Mohawk shaman and Mother of the Wolf Clan he calls Island Woman. In her tradition, dreams reveal the “secret wishes of the soul” and the daily task of the community is to gather round a dreamer, help her to recognize what the soul is saying, and then to take action to honor the soul’s purpose.

For the Iroquois, as for other indigenous traditions, dreaming is also about human survival. Dreams show us what is happening at a distance in time or space. If you see a future event you don’t like, you can take action to avoid that possible future.

Dreaming is a way of connecting with the ancestors and of looking at the consequences of human actions down to the seventh generation beyond ourselves, as the Iroquois insist that wise leaders must always do.

In this high-octane workshop, we will dance on the mythic edge. We will journey into the great mythic creation story of the Woman Who Fell from the Sky and learn from her how to dance a new world into being.  We’ll learn how to

--recognize the secret wishes of the soul, as revealed in dreams
--take action to honor the wishes of the soul for healing and integration
--recognize and clarify future events revealed in dreams
--take action to avoid unwanted possible events, and manifest desirable ones
--journey through mythic gates to discover how to re-vision and re-create your world.

We’ll grow the circle energy that makes the extraordinary easy, and honor our visions with spontaneous ritual, theater, art and storytelling.

Robert Moss is the creator of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of modern dreamwork and shamanism. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood. He leads  seminars all over the world,  from the Carpathian Mountains to southern Brazil, including a three-year training for teachers of Active Dreaming. A former lecturer in ancient history at the Australian National University, he is a best-selling novelist, poet, journalist and independent scholar. His many books on dreaming, shamanism and imagination include Conscious Dreaming, The Secret History of Dreaming, Dreaming the Soul Back Home, and The Boy Who Died and Came Back.

Psychopomp with Robert Moss

Our society is desperately in need of people who are prepared to help midwife Death: to help others approach the last stages of life, and the journey into life beyond life, with courage and grace. The role of the psychopomp is not confined to helping the living to travel the roads beyond Death. It involved helping spirits of the deceased to find their ways.

This extraordinary training marries the powerful and original techniques of Active Dreaming to a vitally important agenda: to help souls on both sides of the swing doors of death. It will require you to brave up for a close encounter with your personal Death, and to travel the roads of the afterlife and develop a working geography of the many options available after physical death.

What happens after death is far too important for us to rely on hand-me-down beliefs and second-hand accounts. We need first-hand knowledge. We get that by visiting places where the dead are alive, and by receiving visitations from those who have departed this world. Both ways of knowing are opened, easily and naturally, in dreams.

The immense body of data on near-death experiences (NDEs) is scientific evidence of the survival of consciousness after the physical body has closed down. Awareness is not confined to the body and brain, and therefore is able to survive death.

It is never too early or too late for us to brave up to death and discover what happens on the Other Side. As Montaigne said, “We do not know where death will meet us, so we must be ready to meet death everywhere.” When we are willing to meet death as an ally instead of a dread, we find we have superabundant energy for life and can approach our life choices with the courage and clarity that a close encounter with death may bring.

"A Magic Big Enough" 
The world is pretty broken these days. Human people are dying senselessly—people we know, people we don’t know, people we care about. Nonhuman people are dying, whole species, hundreds a year. We work to fix this every way we can, but sometimes we feel powerless.

How can we make our magic big enough to heal the world? Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13, 2016, we ask Hekate, goddess of magic, to tell us.

Participants can go here to register:  http://wyrd-sisters.org/registration/ .

Illuminating the Soul with Greg Yasuda and Susan Pullen

Our lives are infused with meaning. Successes, failures, challenges and even illnesses can reflect back the meaning and purpose in our lives. In times when life feels chaotic or overwhelming, it can be difficult to discern the hidden wisdom of the moment. 

We can find ourselves running from day to day putting out fires and getting burned out. What if this burnout signals the need for a different kind of fire? What if this is an invitation to rekindle our inner fire? 

This is a weekend retreat for men and women longing to re-infuse their life with vitality and the richness of being alive. This is an opportunity to connect with yourself and others on a deep level. It's a chance to go beyond our usual surface interactions and have real conversations - the kind that can be a spring of renewal in our lives.

By weaving together deep conversation, dream-work, guided meditation, poetry, myth,  and ritual, we can begin to:
~ connect our personal story to the larger story playing out through human beings across time
~ realize we are not alone in our struggles
~ find what illuminates our soul and brings us alive.

This retreat is appropriate for people of all faiths and spiritual practices. More information is on their website: true-radiance.com

Facilitated by Greg Yasuda, ND, and Susan Pullen.
Dr. Greg has been practicing naturopathic medicine since 2003 and is an Assistant Professor at Bastyr University. He is passionate about working with people to make sense of their lives and supporting the people's innate capacity to heal.
Susan Pullen is a life coach, energy healer and shamanic practitioner. She works alongside clients in removing blocks such as fear, inner resistance, and perfectionism so they can heal, embody their gifts, and create a meaningful life.
