From time immemorial, humans have turned to oracles because we want guidance from a source that is wiser than ourselves. 

We want to connect with nature and the web of life. We want to know we are not alone in the universe. We yearn to live from soul, from the sense of a larger purpose We want to talk to the god/goddess who will talk to us. We seek clues to what is going on beyond the surface of events and what may manifest - and can be manifested - in the future.

Working with dreams has always been the most popular form of divination. Humans have traveled to oracles at sacred sites, like Delphi or Dodona in ancient Greece, to hope to find themselves in the presence of a deity or seer who will answer their questions. Systems of divination have been based on watching birds, studying the liver of a sacrificed animal, watching shapes that appear in water or clouds or reading the fall of yarrow sticks or cowrie shells or tarot cards. Australian Aborigines say that we live in the Speaking Land: everything around us is alive and will speak to us if we pay attention.

 

 

This adventurous course is about learning to dream more deeply, eyes open or closed. Dreaming isn’t just what happens during sleep; dreaming is waking up to sources of guidance, healing and creativity beyond the reach of the everyday mind. 

In night dreams and half-dream states, in lucid dreaming and shamanic journeys, we get out there: we go beyond body and brain. Through the play of synchronicity, powers beyond the curtain of ordinary perception come through and make us aware of a deeper order of reality.

Bringing gifts from another world into this one is the essence of real magic. We’ll learn how to follow this path by walking and talking our dreams. We’ll learn the core techniques of Active Dreaming, Robert’s original synthesis of dreamwork and shamanism.

We’ll practice the craft of shamanic lucid dreaming, which goes beyond what “lucid dreaming” is commonly thought to be. We learn to start out lucid and stay lucid. Using shamanic techniques for shifting consciousness, we embark on intentional journeys on agreed itineraries, which might take us on a mission to scout out the possible future, or explore an alternate reality or a location in the imaginal realm, or through the doorway of a previous dream or vision.

We’ll learn the art of kairomancy: how to navigate by synchronicity and walk in the Speaking Land.

We’ll find ourselves on a Spiral Path, no longer stuck in patterns of repetition, weighed down by personal or multigenerational karma. We’ll rise to the understanding that whatever situation we are in, we always have choice. We’ll grow a dream of possibility, strong enough to take us beyond fear and despair to a place of wild freedom and delight.

In each class you’ll be invited to make journeys to places of power, discovery and healing fueled and focused by Robert’s live shamanic drumming.

 

 

 

Module 1

Cherish Your Personal Dream Oracle

You are a natural psychic of a high order in your dreams, when you let down your left-brain inhibitions and just do it. You routinely practice precognition, clairvoyance, telepathy. Such powers are sometimes described as examples of ESP. Today scientists are reviving a better term invented by the great Victorian scientist of the unseen, Frederick Myers: supernormal Laboratory research confirms that supernormal abilities are for real..

In this class we’ll learn from ancient dream masters as well as leading-edge current research, and above all from our first-hand experience. We’ll invoke the wisdom of Synesius of Cyrene, a philosopher, student of Hypatia and bishop in North Africa, who taught around 400 that dreams are “personal oracles” that speak to us wherever we go, regardless of who we are. “Dream divination is available to all, the good genius to everyone.” Even the worst tyrant is powerless to separate us from our dreams – which may hold the key to his overthrow – “unless he could banish sleep from his kingdom”.

In this class you will be offered

· ways to break a dream drought and reconnect with your own dream oracle

· guidance on keeping the most important book you will ever write: your journal

· Nine Keys to understanding your dreams.

· The Lightning Dreamwork Game, a fast, fun way to share dreams and personal stories, get helpful feedback and be guided to action to embody creative and healing energy and navigational guidance. It’s a great inner workout, and when you play it with friends or family or workmates, you’ll find you are deepening and energizing your relationships.

 

 

 

Module 2

Become a Shamanic Lucid Dreamer

How do you become a shamanic lucid dreamer? You start out conscious and stay that way. To accomplish this, you only need three things: a clear intention, an image that can serve as a portal, and a means of focusing the mind and fueling the journey. All these things can become available naturally, in the twilight zone of consciousness that researchers call hypnagogia. You are between sleep and waking. Images rise and fall in your mind and any one of those images can become the gateway for a conscious dream adventure.

An equally simple and natural way to become a shamanic lucid dreamer is to use a remembered dream as the portal for a travel into the deeper reality. A dream is a journey; it is also a place. You went somewhere in your dream, near or far from the fields you know in your regular life. Because you have been to that place, you can find your way there again. Because you were in a certain place, you may be able to find your way back there, just as you could return to a house you once visited in regular life.

Why would you want to do this? Maybe you've been running away from something in your dream world that scares you - from the Bear, or the Tiger, or an unknown intruder or pursuer. If you can find the courage to go back inside one of those nightmares and face what frightened you on its own ground, you may find power and healing waiting for you on the other side of the terror. In this class, powered by live shamanic drumming, you’ll learn how to

· Use a dream or personal image as the portal for a shamanic journey.

· Reenter a dream to confront and resolve a nightmare terror, solve a mystery, and claim a power.

· Use the liminal state between sleep and awake as the launch pad for lucid dream adventures

· Dialogue with a dream character

· Construct personal doorways to places of healing, discovery and initiation in the multiverse.

 

 

 

Module 3

Become a Kairomancer

While Jung invented the word “synchronicity”, Robert invented the word “kairomancy” to describe the practice of navigating by synchronicity. Kairomancy literally means divination by special moments. But it means more. It means being poised to seize time by the forelock. A kairomancer is someone who is ready to recognize the special moments when synchronicity is at work – and to seize on the revelation or opportunity that is now available.

The world around you will speak to you in signs and symbols and special moments of synchronicity, if you are open and available. This can open life doors for you when all doors seem to be closed. It can thrill you with the sense that the universe just got personal, that you received a secret handshake – sometimes a push back– from a hidden hand. Follow this path and you’ll come awake and alive to the fact that the world is dealing you tarot cards every day. A tarot deck has 78 cards; in Street Corner Tarot, the number is unlimited. In this class you’ll learn how to:

· Put your question to the world and receive guidance on a life theme

· Let the world put its questions to you, by scheduling unscheduled time to pay attention, with all of your senses, to the play of signs and symbols around you

· Check your attitude, with awareness that your attitude may generate everything you encounter

· Recognize and work with personal omens

· Practice bibliomancy: finding a message in a book

 

 

 

Module 4

Follow Your Spiral Path

The Stoic emperor Marcus Aurelius found that on a life road, the obstacle may be the way. When you find yourself blocked or challenged, that may be a prompt for you to look for a better way, or develop needed skill sets or the courage and perseverance to see something through. You may discover that a block has been placed in your way to induce you to find a better way. The philosopher Schopenhauer suggested that when we are on the wrong path, a “conspiracy of fate” may prevent our progress. In this class, you’ll be encouraged to:

.

· Play with your blocks

· Find the gift in a wound

· Seek opportunity in every setback

· Study how, at moments of transformation, you can break down or breakthrough

· Ask the spiral question: When you come to a familiar crossroads in life, do you recall what happened last time? Can you use that knowledge to make a better choice or to go forward in greater self-awareness, so you leave the wheel of repetition and climb the spiral path of personal growth?
