New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

New Book Series: ‘The Alchemy of Dreams’

Apr 07

David Sunfellow writes: “Let me cut to the chase: Wesley Wyatt is the most skilled person I know at dream work and dream interpretation. His abilities with dreams arise out of a lifetime of working with his dreams and the dreams of others. I know because I’m his brother. We not only learned how to work with our dreams together, but we have spent four decades sharing dreams and honing our skills. Whether you are someone new to dreams and dream work, or a seasoned veteran, everyone can benefit from the treasures my brother has collected over the years. Do yourself a favor. Buy his books. And then buy a few copies to share with those you love. While we are all born with angelic companions, in the form of dreams, only those who actually know how to work with these powerful, magical forces can make the most of their gifts. My brother can show you how to tap the same forces that have guided, protected, healed, and inspired many of humankind’s most celebrated dreamers. The Alchemy of Dreams, in other words, are spiritual dynamite. These books contain pearls of great price that can make everything better, deeper, healthier, happier.”

New Book: ‘The Boy Who Died and Came Back: Adventures of a Dream Archaeologist in the Multiverse’

New Book: ‘The Boy Who Died and Came Back: Adventures of a Dream Archaeologist in the Multiverse’

Feb 23

Expand your sense of reality and confirm that there is life beyond death and in other dimensions of the multiverse. Moss describes how he lived a whole life in another world when he died at age nine in a Melbourne hospital and how he died and came back again, in another sense, in a crisis of spiritual emergence during midlife. As he shares his adventures in walking between the worlds, we begin to understand that all times — past, future, and parallel — may be accessible now. Moss presents nine keys for living consciously at the center of the multidimensional universe, embracing synchronicity, entertaining our creative spirits, and communicating with a higher Self…

Shadow: An App To Record The Dreams Of Humankind

Shadow: An App To Record The Dreams Of Humankind

Sep 22

Our brain is an incredibly creative problem solver. And some parts of it are most active while we’re sleeping. Electricity, Frankenstein’s monster, nonviolent resistance, laser technology — all of these were conceived in dreams. Sleep is where some of humanity’s most incredible creations got their start. Yet, we forget 95% of our dreams within five minutes of waking up. That’s a huge amount of data — with unfathomable of potential — we forget each day, all because we don’t have a good way to record and understand it. What would happen if we remembered? Even better, what if we learned to make sense of it? The dream ecosystem has incredible potential to bring us together, and it’s been ignored long enough. Scientists understand the neurology of sleep, but not the content of dreams. We want to build SHADOW to bridge the gap…

Quote: Plato & Joseph Dillard

Quote: Plato & Joseph Dillard

May 24

“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehood’s school. And the one man who dares to tell the truth (Socrates) is called at once a lunatic and fool.”

– Plato (429-347 BC)

“Plato probably didn’t realize that the perennial problem he was describing is a macrocosmic out-picturing of an interior reality with which all men, if they wake up enough, must wrestle. As children we are brainwashed by the cultural assumptions of our family and society. This is inevitable, because culture has no choice but to pass what it has learned, true or not, helpful or not, down to us in the particular distorted forms that it assumes at that place and time. The one part of us that dares to tell the truth – our inner compass, as represented by our night time dreams, is called a lunatic and fool. Why? Because it is a direct threat to the agenda of the prevailing culture. This will not change until the agenda of the prevailing culture reflect the priorities of each man’s inner compass. For that to happen, children in families everywhere must be taught from the cradle to find, listen to, and follow their inner compass.”

– Joseph Dillard, creator of Integral Deep Listening

Wanda Easter Burch: ‘She Who Dreams’

Wanda Easter Burch: ‘She Who Dreams’

Jan 02

Wanda Burch dreamt that she would die at a certain age; her dreams foretold her diagnosis of cancer, and then guided her toward treatment and wellness. She took advantage of all the usual medical resources available to her, but believes she is alive because of her intimate engagement with the dreamworld. “She Who Dreams” takes the reader into that healing dreamworld, opening a path to self-diagnosis and physical and psychic health. Through powerful prose and practical exercises, this book describes in compelling detail a life lived and deepened, and a death postponed. In the process it shows that wisdom lives within everyone, and that anyone can tap into that wisdom through dreamwork…

Dream: The Greatest Movie Ever Made

Dream: The Greatest Movie Ever Made

Oct 31

I dreamed I was sitting in a movie theater watching a movie. As I watched the movie, a host of meandering, shallow, incoherent, sometimes violent images tumbled across the screen. “What kind of ridiculous movie is this?” I thought, appalled that someone had spent millions of dollars on such a worthless, poorly-written movie…

A native New Yorker, he has spent much of his life living and working among traditional tribal peoples, primarily in Africa and Polynesia.

Dreams: Excerpts from “Healing Dreams” by Marc Ian Barasch

Dreams: Excerpts from “Healing Dreams” by Marc Ian Barasch

Jun 21

“In our era, the past is vanishing like smoke. The ancestors and gods and spirits who speak through dreams were once welcomed into the circle of community; were among its essential members. But who now will listen to them? The cultures that honored them are dying, their very languages becoming extinct. The thread of received wisdom that has sustained us is stretched thin to breaking. Shorn of memory, we no longer recognize as part of life’s fabric those who have come before us. The voices of the myriad beings, visible and invisible, who surround us grow faint, though they are still talking in our sleep.
…Our dreams are a continuum, revealing, if we care to look, that we do not exist alone, but in a skein of relationship with all that has been, all that is, and all that shall be.” — Marc Ian Barasch

New Book: ‘Integral Dreaming – A Holistic Approach to Dreams’

New Book: ‘Integral Dreaming – A Holistic Approach to Dreams’

Mar 23

This innovative book offers a holistic approach to one of the most fascinating and puzzling aspects of human experience: dreaming. Advocating the broad-ranging vision termed “integral” by thinkers from Aurobindo to Wilber, Fariba Bogzaran and Daniel Deslauriers consider dreams as multifaceted phenomena in an exploration that includes scientific, phenomenological, sociocultural, and subjective knowledge. Drawing from historical, cross-cultural, and contemporary practices, both interpretive and noninterpretive, the authors present Integral Dream Practice, an approach that emphasizes the dreamer’s creative participation, reflective capacities, and mindful awareness in working with dreams. Bogzaran and Deslauriers have developed this comprehensive way of approaching dreams over many years and highlight their methods in a chapter that unfolds a single dream, showing how sustained creative exploration over time leads to transformative change…

Dream: ‘Tasting The Dragon’

Dream: ‘Tasting The Dragon’

Mar 08

Ryan Hurd writes: “In dreams, the dragon — or one of its variations: wyrm, sea-creature, dinosaur — doesn’t just show up so the heroic ego can kill something ancient and vaguely reptilian to score some gold and a black-haired virgin. That would be too easy. No — there’s unfinished business after you retrieve the sword from the dragon’s belly. I learned this for myself in a terrifying nightmare…”

The Myth Of The Eight-Hour Sleep

The Myth Of The Eight-Hour Sleep

Feb 22

We often worry about lying awake in the middle of the night — but it could be good for you. A growing body of evidence from both science and history suggests that the eight-hour sleep may be unnatural. In the early 1990s, psychiatrist Thomas Wehr conducted an experiment in which a group of people were plunged into darkness for 14 hours every day for a month. It took some time for their sleep to regulate but by the fourth week the subjects settled into a very distinct sleeping pattern. They slept first for four hours, then woke for one or two hours before falling into a second four-hour sleep…

Dream: The Young Couple

Dream: The Young Couple

Feb 15

I had the sweetest little dream last night. It grew out of trying, once again, to come to a deeper understanding of how to relate to other people. When should we go along with something; when should we opt out, how can we go along or opt out in a good way; a way that leaves both people feeling seen, loved, appreciated?

The Art & Science Of Dreaming

The Art & Science Of Dreaming

Aug 11

People throughout the ages have regarded dreams as a source of creative inspiration. A number of famous works of Western art and literature were directly influenced by their creator’s dreams. Among writers, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley dreamed up several key scenes in her novel Frankenstein, and Robert Louis Stevenson had a dream about a divided soul at war with itself that gave him the core plot idea for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Surrealist painters like Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte drew upon their dreams for bizarre, symbol-laden images of melting clocks and floating bowler hats. In more recent years, a number of prominent movie directors have experienced dreams that influenced their films, including David Lynch in Blue Velvet, Francis Ford Coppola in Apocalypse Now, and Akira Kurusawa in Dreams. Contemporary musicians have also described their dreams as creative inspirations. Paul McCartney had a dream that gave him the tune for “Yesterday,” and Sting’s song “The Lazarus Heart” came from a personal nightmare…

Five Reasons To Listen To Your Children’s Dreams

Five Reasons To Listen To Your Children’s Dreams

Jul 17

Children often tell researchers that no one listens to them when they want to talk about their dreams. Unfortunately, pressured schedules and a cultural disinterest in dreams mean that many parents take little notice of their own dream life, never mind their children’s. Here are five reasons why parents might want to find a few moments to listen carefully to their children’s nightly expeditions…

Prophetic Dreams: Preparing For Divorce

Apr 07

As an experienced dreamworker, I know dream messages are true and that they often predict the future. Yet sometimes I am not ready to hear what they have to say. The truth is, when we have dreams that feel unsetting it’s easy to push them aside and hope they’ll go away. But if you are willing to face your emotionally disturbing dreams, you may be able to confront concerns before they turn into waking life dramas. Case in point: two dreams I had at the beginning of last year that told me exactly what was coming…

Mar 09

You have chronic pain in your shoulder. You’ve heard about lucid dreaming and how it can help you heal, so you decide to give it a try. Before you go to bed, you set your intention, then fall asleep. Suddenly you wake up, but quickly realize you are dreaming. After a moment of excitement, you remember your intention to heal so you conjure up a magic wand and cry out, “Lumos!” A beautiful light bursts from your wand, and as you direct the energy to your shoulder the light turns into a blazing red Eye of Horus, the Egyptian symbol of protection and power. You wake up feeling better. This is the true story of how DreamTribe author Atava Garcia experienced her first lucid healing session. You can supercharge your healing potential by practicing specific lucid dreaming techniques…

Deep Sleep Maximizes Brain’s Ability To Learn

Deep Sleep Maximizes Brain’s Ability To Learn

Mar 09

UC Berkeley researchers have found compelling evidence that bursts of brain waves known as “sleep spindles” may be networking between key regions of the brain to clear a path to learning. “A lot of that spindle-rich sleep is occurring the second half of the night, so if you sleep six hours or less, you are shortchanging yourself. You will have fewer spindles, and you might not be able to learn as much,” said Bryce Mander, a post-doctoral fellow in psychology at UC Berkeley and lead author of the study…

Dreams: Lucid Dreaming, Jared Loughner & The Tucson Shooting

Jan 14

Jared Loughner is the man alledgedly responsible for the Tucson shooting last Sunday, which resulted in the death of six people and the injury of fourteen others. Since the shooting, and Loughner’s arrest, several details about his life have come out in the press. His favorite books include Marx’s Communist Manifesto and Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He has an active Youtube profile detailing his political and literary influences, and, according to various sources, has reportedly been fighting mental illness for years. Jared Loughner is also a lucid dreamer. Already, several news sources have commented on Loughner’s passion for “conscience dreaming,” as he called it, the ability to control your dreams. Today, CNN followed up with a balanced piece, interviewing several dream researchers. Unfortunately, some local TV networks have not dug so deep, suggesting that conscious dreaming — the actual term for dreaming with self-awareness — is a gateway to mental illness…
