The Dream Journal
Shamanic Dream Journeying with Robert Moss

It’s April Fool’s Day, and we are talking with dreaming’s biggest trickster Robert Moss. Moss is a shamanic dreamer and author of over two dozen books. Today talk about traveling without leaving home.

Robert describes himself as a story teller who helps people find their story. He begins with the tale of what happened when he was pronounced dead at age 3 and about how dreaming is preparation for dying. We speak about the power of imagination and about the practice of living by synchronicity which he calls kairomancy. He urges us to remember to play.

We take a dream from Steve Popp of Santa Cruz in which his dad offers him a horse which ultimately turns into a deer, and a call from Elizabeth from Bellingham who asks about how to stimulate more dreams, who mentions a dream of her own about a blue horse. We also take a call from Beth Ann from the Central Valley who asks about how to find humor and playfulness around dark dreams. Synchronistically, she also mentions dreams about horses.

Robert announces that he will lead a course called Adventures in Soul Travel which will be released on the Shift Network in May,
