Details: Product Description Practical Magic for Living the “Life of Your Dreams” Active Dreaming is a way of being fully of this world while maintaining constant contact with another world, the world-behind-the-world, where the deeper logic and purpose of our lives are to be found. Active Dreaming offers three core areas of practice: talking and walking our dreams to bring energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life; shamanic lucid dreaming; and conscious living. Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. They choose not to buy into self-limiting beliefs or the limited models of reality suggested by others. Active dreamers learn to grow a dream of possibility, a dream strong enough to take them beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight. Review “Writing about dreams, Moss is eloquent and authoritative, a wise teacher.” — Publishers Weekly “This book sits at the intersection of poetry and practicality. Robert Moss speaks to a world we each inhabit and only dimly understand. Read this book.” — Peter Block, coauthor of The Abundant Community “ Active Dreaming is a jewel of a book! It not only helps us to personally transform our lives but also provides a path to transform the world we live in.” — Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval and How to Thrive in Changing Times “A life cut off from dreams is a life half-lived. Robert Moss is one of our wisest guides to dreams and dreaming. Highly recommended.” — Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions and Reinventing Medicine About the Author Robert Moss, the creator of Active Dreaming, leads popular seminars all over the world. His previous books include Conscious Dreaming, Dreamways of the Iroquois, The Three “Only” Things, The Secret History of Dreaming, and Dreamgates. He lives in upstate New York.

When very young, children know how to go to magic kingdoms without paying for tickets, because they are at home in the imagination and live close to their dreams.
