ANCESTRAL HEALING AND DREAM ARCHAEOLOGY

ANCESTRAL HEALING AND DREAM ARCHAEOLOGY with Robert Moss

For prices and registration, click HERE

The ancestors are calling, calling. We are talking about ancestors in three senses: the ancestors of your bloodlines, and of the lands where you live or travel, and of your soul family across time and place.

In this soul-centered workshop, we’ll explore loving and effective ways to heal our relations with the departed through the powerful techniques of Active Dreaming, Robert’s original synthesis of shamanism and dreamwork.

We have natural communication with the departed in our dreams, and for many dreamers this is direct and life-changing evidence of the reality of the soul and its survival of physical death The departed appear in our dreams either because they have not really left, or because they come visiting, or because in dreaming we enter their realms. These encounters offer us important opportunities for healing, closure and giving or receiving forgiveness and guidance.

Our departed may come as “family angels”, with life-supporting counsel and information. Or they may need help and guidance from us – because they have unfinished business, or are lost or confused or crippled by guilt or unable to detach from old environments and addictions. In such cases, as Yeats observed, the living may be able to “assist the imaginations of the dead.”

We will seek timely and helpful communication with the departed. We will share personal experiences and needs and develop the skills and spiritual resources to serve as guides and healers for survivors, and for the departed themselves.

We will develop personal rituals to honor our ancestors. We’ll learn that healing and forgiveness are always available, across the apparent barrier of death. We’ll learn methods of spiritual release to free ourselves, and our departed, from ancestral karma and unhappy family histories. We will connect with spiritual guides and build the deep circle energy that makes the extraordinary easy.

Our work and play goes further. 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.

Marija Gimbutas declared with urgent clarity in The Civilization of the Goddess:  “We must refocus our collective memory. The necessity of this has never been greater as we discover that the path of ‘progress’ is extinguishing the very conditions for life on earth.” Dream archaeology provides powerful tools for refocusing collective memory, exactly as the great scholar of the Goddess proposed. Dreams guide us to the necessary past, to the history we need to know and use.

We let dreams set us assignments. Secrets of the past, of which the waking mind may know nothing or very little, come to us in dreams because we are ready for them, and because the ancestors speak to us. As dream archaeologists, we work with such dreams through focused investigation, tracking that strange word, looking again at the fragments of that figurine. We carry our exploration into the dream space, by learning to go back inside a dream, wide awake and conscious, as an archaeological team may penetrate to previously hidden levels of a site, or the inner caves where the great revelations are to be found. Dream reentry, a core technique of  Active Dreaming, is practiced wide awake and conscious, and may be a joint venture by a whole group of active dreamers. We use shamanic drumming to fuel and focus our expeditions, using a dream image as a doorway to harvest more information, open direct dialogue with the ancestors, and go to the deeper levels of reality where the meaning of things can be found.

We are open to the phenomenon that Yeats, with poetic insight, called the “mingling of minds”. This means that when we give our best efforts and passion to our chosen work or study, we draw the support of intelligences beyond the everyday world, including those of past masters in the same field.

We’ll learn to reach across time to heal ancestral wounds, discharge karmic burdens, and reclaim ancient rituals. We’ll requicken ways of seeing and healing that were shared by the wise ancestors, who knew  that dreams show us what the soul wants, and open roads for the soul to come home, on both sides of physical death. We’ll practice the core techniques in the shaman’s way of dreaming, including the art of dream travel, timefolding, shapeshifting, reading the sign language of the world and creating and healing from the dreamspace. We’ll generate the wonderful circle energy that makes the extraordinary easy.

TIME TRAVEL AND REALITY CREATION with Robert Moss

TIME TRAVEL AND REALITY CREATION with Robert Moss
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. Asactive 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.

Writing as a State of Conscious Dreaming with Robert Moss

REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP AND SIGN UP FOR ACCOMMODATIONS AND MEALS BY CLICKING: HERE

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.

Healing and Wholeness through Active Dreaming with Robert Moss

TUITION: $325 if paid in full by April 20, $375 thereafter.

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. Active dreaming is central to soul recovery – reclaiming vital energy we lost through pain or heartbreak, guilt or addiction – and to healing our relations with the ancestors.

You’ll learn:

  • How to work with your dream doctor, including the “animal doctors” that shamans consult

  • How to share dreams and images in a fast, fun way that produces helpful feedback and guidance for action

  • How to use a remembered dream as the portal for a lucid dream journey

  • How to harvest imagery for self- healing from your dreams and life memories

  • How to go to a personal House of Healing in the Imaginal Realm where help is always available

  • How any image that belongs to you, even the most terrifying, can offer a doorway to healing and wholeness if you are willing to work with it.

  • How to get in touch with your bigger story and your life purpose

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

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.

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 with Robert Moss

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.

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)

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.

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. As we grow that wonderful circle energy and deepen our connections within our dream family, we’ll test-fly new techniques and develop our practice as dream leaders, trackers and teachers of the core processes of Active Dreaming.

Techniques we will learn to teach, as well as practice, include: 
--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. Our graduates come from diverse backgrounds and include artists, entrepreneurs, producers and publicists as well as therapists, 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.

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.

ADVANCED TRAINING
By invitation only. Please contact Robert directly

PREREQUISITES:
Candidates for the Dream Teacher Training are required to have completed at least two depth (2-day or longer) workshops with Robert Moss. They are also required to be thoroughly familiar with at least these of his books: Conscious Dreaming, Dreamgates, Active Dreaming and Dreaming the Soul Back Home. Robert’s educational DVD series The Way of the Dreamer is excellent preparation for the training.

TUITION: $895 if paid in full by June 1; $995 thereafter (includes gourmet lunches all days). A non-refundable $200 deposit is required to confirm your place.

TUITION: 
$325 if paid in full by June 1; $375 thereafter.  Includes gourmet lunches both days. 

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

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.

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.

bright blessings
