The commonly used phrase; “what dreams may come” takes on a whole new meaning in Robert Moss’ latest work, Active Dreaming: Journey Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom. Most of us find that our own dreams fascinate and confuse us as we try to analyze what our most bizarre dreams mean. In fact, Moss professes it should be just the opposite; that we should be trying to solve our life’s problems and seize the opportunities for our own growth in and through our dreams. The dream state can come in the form of meditation, contemplation and playful exercises that teach us to interpret our lives through our imaginational dream-state. This ground-breaking work by Moss is in three parts; Wake Up and Dream, Active Dreaming for Conscious Living and, Toward a Commonwealth of Dreamers that identifies the necessary steps and processes for active dreaming.  If your dreams fascinate you and your life confuses you, pick up this book and straighten all that out!
