In this extraordinary book, shamanic dream teacher Robert Moss teaches us how to become shamans of our own souls and healers of our own lives.
The essence of the shaman's power to travel and to heal is the ability to dream strong. In our everyday modern lives, we stand at the edge of such power when we dream and remember to do something with our dreams. If you want to be a shaman, start at the breakfast table, by sharing dreams the right way with your family and friends.
The greatest contribution of the ancient shamans to our medicine and healing today is the understanding that in the course of any life we are liable to suffer "soul loss" -- the loss of parts of our vital energy and identity -- and that in order to be whole and well, we must find the means of soul recovery. Robert Moss teaches us that our dreams give us maps we can use to travel to where energy that was lost or stolen can be found and brought home. He shows us how to recover our animal spirits and ride the windhorse of spirit to places of healing and adventure in the larger reality. We discover how the ancestors come seeking us through dreams and how, through conscious engagement, we can heal ancestral wounds and open the way for "cultural" soul recovery.
On our roads of soul, we have a remarkable ally, if we will only accept it. Sufis call it the soul of the soul. It is the Greater or Higher Self. Moss encourages us to open our hearts to receive its guidance.
Dreamers are time travelers, and you'll discover here how the depth of healing and guidance becomes available when you operate in that knowledge. You'll learn how to enter past lives and future lives, and the life experiences of parallel selves, and how to bring back lessons and gifts. You'll learn that you can connect with earlier versions of yourself "in their own Now time," to provide the support and mentoring they desperately need.
"It's not just about keeping soul in the body. It's about "growing" soul, becoming more than we ever were, embodying more of the Greater Self," writes Moss. With fierce joy, he incites us to take the creator's leap and bring something new into our world.show more
