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.

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.
