Dream Teacher Training Level 1 with Robert Moss

Register for the workshop, accommodations, and meals here

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.

Time Travel and Reality Creation with Robert Moss

This workshop has been canceled.

TUITION: $325 if paid in full by June 1st, $375 thereafter. (plus lodging and meals)

TIME TRAVEL AND REALITY CREATION
Shamanic Dreaming to Explore Past and Future Lives and Create Better Futures
In dreams, we are time travelers. Released from Newtonian physics and our consensual hallucinations, the dream self travels into past time, future time, and alternate realities. As active dreamers using the skills of shamanic journeying, we can travel consciously across time to scout the future for ourselves and others, and grow a better future.

In this high-energy adventure, we’ll help each other to grow our life dreams and to become full citizens of the multidimensional universe. We’ll claim the power that comes from acting in the knowledge that the only time is Now, and that all pasts and futures are accessible in this moment and may be revised for the better.

You’ll gain direct knowledge of how past-life experiences affect your current life experience and relationships; beyond this, you’ll learn how to communicate mentally with personalities in other times for mutual benefit. You’ll discover how to receive counsel from an older and wiser self, and how you can play mentor and protector for a younger self who may desperately need help in his or her own time.

In this program, our work deepens and we develop many further applications, preparing ourselves to bring the gifts of Active Dreaming into many different environments.

--shamanic tracking
--imaginal healing
--creating from dreams
--navigating by synchronicity
--the art of dream theatre
--vision transfer for empowerment
--and healing growing community vision

We will study of the History of Dreaming – not only the cross-cultural study of different approaches to dream exploration, but the actual experience of dream travel and dream healing in different ages and civilizations.

In the Level Two training, we will also study the Basics of Psychic Protection. We will deepen our understanding of the workings of the energy bodies, the nature of multidimensional reality, and the possibilities of dream travel. We will develop new ways to grow dream communities in our neighborhoods and bring Active Dreaming techniques into many new environments where they are urgently needed. We’ll help each other to find practical applications of our training to other practices and to our professional and personal situations.

Student teachers will receive a new (Level Two) Manual of Practice and a certificate of completion.

Some of our graduates go on to teach Active Dreaming classes and workshops. Many marry the Active Dreaming techniques to an existing practice or community environment.

Visionseeker 4 - Deity Mysticism and the Mythic Nature of the Self with Hank Wesselman, PhD.

This workshop is full. Please email us if you would like to be put on the waiting list. We do expect Hank to lead two or three workshops here in 2019.

If you are already signed up for the workshop, you can register for a room and meals  here

Our myths are our stories that inform and shape our world-view and our cultural ideals. Such stories are often fictitious, yet within each of them is an eternal truth that explains aspects of the natural world as well as the customs of our society and of ourselves.

We embodied humans are mythic creatures and we cannot function separated from our myths. We literally ARE our myths… and our myths are our sacred ground. Carolyn Myss has said “myths are the batteries of our belief systems, and if our myths are challenged or are discredited, then our world comes crashing down around us … if we are not awake.”

We are now living in a time of unparalleled change in which we can sense a dismantling of our most familiar myths—the myths of our religions, of our nation, as well as the myths of ourselves in relation to the future of our planet. These are the stories that have held the social fabric of our society together for hundreds, even thousands of years.

So how can we as awakened mystics be of service?  In this five day workshop with anthropologist Hank Wesselman, we will utilize the shamanic path of direct revelation to receive and bridge the incoming cultural mythos into being, the new stories that reflect our changing social values, attitudes, and perceptions of our self as we proceed toward the future. In this way, we may be of service to our society as well as to The Mystery that breathes life and wonder into our world.

This workshop will utilize the shamanic journeywork method of meditation, yet all who join us will be welcome. If you have them, bring a hand drum, a rattle, power objects (for the altar), a notebook, perhaps an eyeshade, and a light blanket.

Suggested reading: Hank Wesselman—The Re-Enchantment; Awakening to the Spirit World (with Sandra Ingerman); The Bowl of Light; and the Spiritwalker Trilogy.

$1595 includes tuition, lodging in a double room, and all meals from Sunday dinner through Friday lunch. Other lodging options are available. For registration, click here

Way of the Kairomancer with Robert Moss

Register for the workshop, lodging, and meals here

TUITION: $325 if paid in full by November 9, $375 thereafter. (plus lodging and meals)

WAY OF THE KAIROMANCER
Playing with Signs, Symbols and Synchronicity in the Dream of Everyday Life

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 navigate by synchronicity, poised to recognize and act in Kairos moments when the universe gets personal. 
  

A kairomancer is ready seize on the revelation or opportunity in these special moments. In this fun, high-octane adventure, you’ll learn

·         Why you want to view dreams more literally and waking life more symbolically

·         How to become a “strange attractor” for happy events and encounters

·         How any setback can offer an opportunity:

·         How to put your question to the world and receive guidance on a life theme

·         How the passions of the soul work magic

We'll grow the poetic consciousness that allows us to recognize how life rhymes and hear the many voices of the Speaking Land. This is a path of natural magic that takes us beyond self-limiting beliefs into a life of wild freedom and possibility. 
   

We’ll find we are living on a mythic edge. We’ll dance with the Trickster, play wonderful new games, and leave with resources for conscious living that will put a champagne fizz of magic into everyday life.

WRITING AS A STATE OF CONSCIOUS DREAMING
This may be the most unusual, and wildly creative, writing retreat on the planet. Where else can you hope that a group of lively spirits will play-act the next chapters of your unfinished novel, or be enabled to journey to a Secret Library where you can read and bring back pages you have not yet written in the ordinary world, and confer with a master teacher?

In a writing life, the great moments are when you are dreaming on paper (or on a keyboard). Words stream almost effortlessly from springs that are not accessible in lesser states of consciousness. Clock time no longer rules. In an expansive now-time, more is possible in minutes than might otherwise come in days. Improbable connections are made and prove to be exactly right. 

This is a state of conscious dreaming. You straddle the worlds. You are the shaper, not merely the amanuensis, for the images bubbling up from those fresh springs.

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 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.

Living on the Mythic Edge with Robert Moss

Register for the workshop, lodging, and meals here

TUITION: $325 if paid in full by April 20, $375 thereafter. (plus lodging and meals)

LIVING ON THE MYTHIC EDGE

You know this moment: your life is trembling on the edge of a greater drama. You feel things stirring behind the curtain of everyday perception, moving pieces around you, bringing things together in astounding moments of synchronicity. You feel yourself driven, defended or thwarted by greater powers. Your life rhymes in inexplicable ways.You become aware that what is with you and around you – in what Jung called your “circumambient atmosphere” – has been charged with the energy of an archetype, call it a goddess or daimon, an angel or elemental.

You have been prepared for these awakening by dreams and by stories you heard in childhood. As Joseph Campbell said so clearly: “A dream is a personal experience of that deep dark ground that is the support of our conscious lives, and a myth is society’s dream. The myth is the public dream and the dream is the private myth.”

Australian Aborigines say that the Big stories are hunting the right people to tell them, like predators stalking in the bush. The trick is to put ourselves in a place where the Big stories can find us. In this mythic adventure in a dream location, we’ll let the Big stories hunt us, and make them the substance of the personal mythologies that bring courage, passion and healing into our lives.

When we are seized by the Big story, we step beyond limiting definitions and beliefs. Great healing becomes available because we can now draw on the immense energy that is generated by the sense of serving a larger purpose and living a mythic life. The muse, or creative genius, and the intelligences of the world-behind-the-world come to support our life projects, because we are following a deeper call.

We will learn the practice of dream archaeology. This is an emerging discipline, pioneered by Robert, 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 shamanic journeying across time and between dimensions. The dream archaeologist combines the skills of the shaman, the scholar and the detective.

     You’ll confirm that

  • The gods love to travel in disguise

  • There is a Cosmic Costume department for spiritual guides. They dress according to occasions, and our level of understanding.

  • Your Big Story is hunting you.

  • When you remember your Bigger story, and start living it consciously, you find courage and purpose to get you through the darkest day.

  • The doorway to the Otherworld opens from wherever you are.

  • Synchronicity is when the universe gets personal.

  • Gods happen. Goddesses happen even more.

We’ll learn and practice the powerful and original techniques of Active Dreaming. We’ll become shamans of the breakfast table, helping each other to share inner experiences and harvest personal imagery to live richer mythic lives.

We’ll master the arts of shamanic lucid dreaming. Using shamanic techniques for shifting consciousness, we’ll embark on hyper-awake dream journeys with partners or a whole group to explore the imaginal realm and travel to places of healing, initiation and soul remembering that mystics and creators have always wished to visit.

We’ll play wonderful games of coincidence and imagination. We’ll walk in Baudelaire’s forest of living symbols that are looking at us. We’ll develop personal dictionaries of symbols and discover the magnetic power of symbols to bring together inner and outer events. Each of us will leave with a personal myth so deep and strong that it wants to take root in the world.

Dreamgates: Exploring the Worlds of Soul, Imagination and Life Beyond Death

$695 if paid in full by February 15th. $795 thereafter.
You can mail a check (Mosswood Holllow, 20215 320 Ave. NE, Duvall, WA 98019), use paypal (mosswood@mosswoodhollow.org), or call with a credit card (425-844-9050). 

In this high adventure in Active Dreaming, you’ll be encouraged to remember and live the deeper story of your life.  You’ll find confirmation of things you may have sensed, or glimpsed in half-forgotten dreams or in the path of moonlight on water:

 --You are here in this world on a mission

 --You had a life before you were conceived, and you’ll have a life after death.

 --You belong to a spiritual, as well as a biological family. You have counterparts in other times and in alternate realities, aspects of your larger, multidimensional self

 --Dreaming is traveling.

 --The events and situations you encounter in physical reality have their genesis in a deeper order of reality that indigenous peoples call the Dreamtime, and you can learn to go there consciously.

 --You can visit the Other Side, have timely and helpful communication with the departed in their current living environments – and make Death your ally instead of your fear.

 --You are never confined to the body, or the laws of Newtonian physics, except through a failure of imagination.

 --Coincidence is when the universe gets personal, and navigating by synchronicity is the dreamer’s way of traveling the roads of everyday life.

You’ll learn practical techniques to bring energy, guidance and healing from a deeper reality into everyday life. You’ll discover how to project consciousness safely beyond the body, how to open gates between the worlds – and how to close them when necessary.  You’ll learn how to travel, wide awake and dreaming, to true cities of the imagination, and other places of instruction, adventure and healing in non-ordinary reality, and how to read the signs of everyday life as a set of dream symbols. You’ll be invited to meet your counterparts in other realities, and rise to the knowledge of the Higher Self at the hub of the many aspects of your multidimensional self. In short, this program is an invitation to become a full citizen of the multidimensional universe.

Healing Retreat with Susan Pullen and Greg Yasuda, ND

We are all innately self-healing, yet at times we want to stimulate or access this capacity more readily. How do we engage self-healing? What can we do to support our own healing process?

Topics of exploration may include:

  • finding our place in the world and a sense of belonging
  • healing issues in our family line

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.

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.

Website (w/ all details):          worththejourney.com/inward

Imagine sitting cross legged in a yurt. You’re surrounded by an intimate group of people who have become new friends almost overnight. You’re listening as someone shares their vision for 2018, not just for their business, but for themselves, for their deepest expression in the world. The last missing piece of your own vision pops into place and you see the whole 2018 year clearly – all the ways you can build a thriving practice for yourself, while nurturing every part of your being.

As you get ready for a luxurious and nourishing yoga class, you hug and thank your new friend for their inspiration. You make plans to share your delicious, locally grown meal together and scheme ways you can collaborate on your businesses. After 3 days in a beautiful setting you return home full of ideas, topped up on self care, and with a new community of peers – transformational, heart-centered entrepreneurs like you, to support you in your vision of 2018.

Love Your Story, Love Your Life

If you are already registered for this workshop, sign up for accommodations and meals here

Love Your Story, Love Your Life ~ Weekend Healing Retreat
October 27, 6:00pm - October 29, 4:00pm

Our minds love to tell us stories, making up all manner of plot lines in which we are the central character. These stories often have a core theme such as, “it’s better not to get too close to people because sooner or later they will betray you,” or “nothing ever works out for me,” or “my mother always liked my sister best.”

These stories guide our perception and therefore our experience. An empowering story can free up energy for our life and fuel our vision. A disempowering story can rob us of energy, blind us to the good things in our lives, and over time can lead to a sense of dis-ease.

We are all innately self-healing, yet sometimes our stories block us from fully accessing this capacity. But like symptoms of disease, our stories both point the way to what ails us, yet also contain the very resource needed for our transformation. When we are witnessed and understood, we can create a bigger story that gives us access to those resources. As our story changes, we also change.

In this retreat, we will create a supportive community for exploring - and transforming - our stories. We will explore questions like:

  • What am I telling myself that might be holding me back from my healing and evolution?
  • Is this story big enough to hold all of who I am?
  • What is the story I want to be living?

Through sharing in circle, personal healing rituals, and wonderful group meals, we get to explore the stories of our lives in empowering ways. This is an opportunity both to deepen our own healing as well as actively support others in their process.

With Greg Yasuda, ND & Susan Pullen

Rhythmic Rejuvenation with Tina Bystrom

Rhythmic Rejuvenation: A Women’s Retreat Over the Autumnal Equinox
with Tina Bystrom, NBCR, LMT

Learn Dynamic Tools for Self-Liberation and Connectedness through Movement, Somatic Self-Assessment, Bodywork, Storytelling, Language Awareness, Art, Rhythm, and Nature

September 22-24, or September 22-25

If you are registered for the workshop, you can register for accommodations and meals here

With the rise of speed and technology in every aspect of our society, it is essential that we prioritize our connectedness to self, others, and nature to maintain a healthy balance in our bodies and in our lives. The Autumnal Equinox offers a time of equilibrium, a balance between night and day, and a perfect moment to listen to the Body, open the Mind, and rejuvenate the Spirit within the rhythms of nature.

Join an extraordinary group of women as we slow down and learn (or remember) how to:

  • Recognize and respond to the direct, lively feedback from our bodies
  • Allow and plan for our unique circadian rhythms and sense of pace
  • Value and maintain our core need for human touch
  • Nourish our innate yearning to connect with and be grounded in nature

Throughout the Rhythmic Rejuvenation Women’s Retreat, we will honor and explore the Body as a sensory vessel through which we interact with the worlds within and without us, and as a cellular time capsule, a recorder and container of our unique human experience, from conception on.

We will listen to, express, and nourish the Body-Mind-Spirit with dynamic tools and techniques to help us understand, heal, and enhance our sensory and emotional experiences through:

  • Somatic (body) awareness and liberation: self-assessment, solo and partnered bodywork, intuitive and playful movement
  • Storytelling and Language: explore patterns of thought, words, tenses, and stories  
  • Art: finger painting! Connect with your inner child and let her play and express  
  • Rhythm: live hand drumming will underscore several of our activities
  • Connection with nature: nature meditations, walks, hot tub soaks, and the beauty 40 natural acres

In this full weekend of offerings, session participation is always optional.
here will be ample free time to gather into smaller groups and for personal reflection.

**********
ADDITIONAL INTENSIVE through September 25: This optional, additional day is for those who wish to continue to breathe slowly and deeply, enjoy nourishing meals made with love, commune with others in nature, and move further into the tools and techniques we have learned over the weekend.

Remain with us to delve more intensely into guided self-assessment, solo bodywork and unwinding, intuitive movement, and the supported release of any memories or emotions that may arise.

We will continue to nurture our connection with nature, and expand our exploration of internalized stories and language, and how we change our lives when we change our inner dialogue.

**********
About the Facilitator: Tina Bystrom has been an impassioned reflexologist and energy medicine practitioner since 2005. Compelled by interest and intuition, she added a massage license in 2016 to expand her scope of touch to the cranium, and ultimately to the “larger” body with her own jostling approach, Rhythmic Myofascial Release™. She has been an enthusiastic recipient of many types of bodywork and energywork throughout her adult life, which has informed her work and led to profound healing on multiple levels.

Tina founded Insight Healing Arts in Bothell as a home for her private practice (formerly Reflexology Northwest), along with a classroom space in which to teach continuing education classes for reflexologists, massage therapists, and others interested in the mind/body/spirit connection It is her joy to offer her first women’s retreat at the delightful Mosswood Hollow Retreat Center over the Autumnal Equinox.

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.

TUITION: 
$325 if paid in full by August 15; $375 thereafter.  Includes gourmet lunches both days.
