The myth is the public dream and the dream is the private myth.
— Joseph Campbell
Are you living your “biggest” story for your life?
You are if...
... you vibrate with excitement and passion for what you do. Your creativity flows freely, and you can manifest what you want almost effortlessly.
Best of all, your life feels a little “edgy” (in a good way) as you courageously and joyfully live at full-tilt, bringing your soul’s desires and the most expanded version of yourself into the light of day.
Consciously or unconsciously, all of us live our lives directed by stories...
And if you’re not aware you’re living a story, it’s likely you’re stuck inside a narrow and constricted one, bound tight by others’ definitions and expectations.
Yet when you open to a bigger life story, you put yourself in touch with tremendous sources of healing, creativity, and courage.
How do you discover your Bigger Story?
Australian Aborigines say that the big stories are hunting the right people to tell them, like predators stalking in the bush.
The trick is to put yourself in a place where the big stories can find you.
And when you’re seized by the Big Story, you step beyond your limiting beliefs and open to the healing that can come from the immense energy generated by the sense of serving a larger purpose and living a mythic life.
When you live your mythic “edge,” your muse, or creative genius, and the intelligences of the world-behind-the-world appear to support your life projects because you’re following a deeper call.
These powers of the deeper world are always moving among us — call them gods or daimons, ancestors or archetypes — but most of the time we’re unaware of their presence.
Yet, when they’re in the field — noticed or invisible, invoked, or uninvoked — their presence has a shimmer effect on the ordinary world. Wherever they are, the fabric of physical reality becomes fluid and unstable.
And you experience this shift as synchronicity or a meaningful coincidence.
But you need to pay attention... to learn how to look for these signs from the universe, which can show up in the most unlikely forms — that snatch of conversation overheard in a cafe, a bird flying into your office window, or even an unexpected kindness from a stranger...
Like a street sign, these synchronistic moments can say Stop or Go, Dead End, or Fast Lane, leading you in the direction your Big Story knows you need to go.
If you follow them, you find yourself moving in a field of symbolic resonance — that not only reflects back your inner themes and preoccupations, but provides confirmation or course correction.
And you discover the power they have to bring together what you know with what you don’t yet know.
In this exciting 9-week adventure with bestselling author and dream explorer Robert Moss, you’ll discover how to let the big stories hunt you and live through you as your personal myth, while bringing more courage, passion, and healing into your life.
Robert is one of the world’s most respected and beloved dream experts and shamans, who’s inspired hundreds of thousands to look to their dreams and synchronicity for guidance and healing.
He’s traveled the world sharing his teachings as an independent scholar. His dozen books on dreaming, shamanism, and imagination have been heralded as essential reading for those on this path.
He’s also a phenomenal storyteller, using story as a highly effective (and much loved) teaching tool — one of the most enjoyable aspects of his courses, according to his students.
In Living Your Mythic Edge, Robert will show you how your everyday ups and downs are related to a deeper drama, and help you recognize which archetypes are at play within and around you. He’ll also teach you how to talk nicely to the greater powers so they’ll take a protective interest.
You’ll learn to become a kairomancer — a term Robert invented to describe someone who’s ready to recognize and act in special moments of synchronicity, when the universe gets personal and opportunity strikes.
And you’ll play wonderful games of coincidence and imagination. You’ll walk in Baudelaire’s forest of living symbols, which are looking at you. You’ll develop personal dictionaries of symbols and discover the magnetic power they have to bring together inner and outer events.
To navigate your life by synchronicity so you and your Big Story can find each other, you need to be open to new experience; willing to set aside plans and step out of boxes; grateful for secret handshakes and surprises; and ready to honor these special moments by taking appropriate action.
When you complete this fascinating 9-week journey with Robert, you’ll recognize synchronicity, know how to follow its lead, and be well on your way to living your own personal myth — your Big Story that’s so deep and strong that it wants to take root in the world.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
During this 9-week program, Robert will guide you through the fundamental insights, skills, and practices you’ll need in your life to experience the magic and uncover the wisdom that’s all around you whenever you need it.
Each weekly teaching session will build harmoniously upon the next so you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to discover how to let your Big Story find and live through you.
We begin where ancient and Indigenous wisdom tells us we need to start any day: by paying our respects to the sacred powers that open and close our paths in life. The Gatekeeper is one of the most important archetypes that is active in our lives. He or she is that power that opens and closes our doors and roads.
In many traditions, it’s customary to make an offering to the Gatekeeper when embarking on a project or a journey. The offering required of us may simply be to check in and show a little respect.
Trickster is the mode the Gatekeeper — that power that opens doors in your life — adopts when you need to change and adapt and recover your sense of humor. If you are set in your ways, and wedded to a linear agenda, the Trickster can be your devil.
If you are open to the unexpected, and willing to turn on a dime (or something smaller) the Trickster can be a very good friend.
At the start of our journey together, you’ll discover:
This week, we’re going to learn how to navigate life by Nine Rules for Kairomancers, and one more just for fun:
And the extra rule, which may be most important:
We’ll also do some fun exercises and shamanic journeying to discover:
There are two basic ways to approach oracles...
The first way requires you to set a theme or pose a question for the oracle. In ancient times, this frequently involved lengthy preparation and significant cost — ritual purification, animal sacrifice, pay-offs to priests. Today, you might put your question to a psychic, or a preferred divination system like tarot or I Ching, or your dreams.
You can also take your question to the world by agreeing with yourself that whatever pops up in your field of perception in a certain period of time will be a response from the oracle of the world to whatever is on your mind. This is one way to play what Robert calls Sidewalk Tarot. The second way to listen to oracles is to let the world set a theme or pose a question to you. All this requires is readiness to receive, and to allow enough space in your mind and in the physical structure of your day to notice what the world is giving you. This is a second way to play Sidewalk Tarot and the results can be fascinating. The theme the world is putting to you may be more interesting than the question your ego put to the world.
This week you’ll discover:
If you’re confused about what’s happening in your dreams, you’ll find that if you walk your dreams in the world, what pops up around you will offer a commentary. At the same time, the dream you’re carrying may light up your world, bringing different things into focus.
This week, you’ll be guided in how to walk in the liminal space between sleep and awake. This twilight zone of hypnagogia is where your creative and psychic gifts come richly alive, if you let them. It’s a great launch pad for lucid dreaming and a place to develop what dream yogis and other adepts prize as continuity of consciousness.
You’ll also learn how to open a safe space where you can share your dreams with friends inside or outside this community, receive helpful feedback from different perspectives, and be guided on what action you can take to bring magic from the dreamworld into your waking world.
This week, you’ll:
Jung not only invented the word “synchronicity”; he lived by it. He was constantly alive to the oracles all around him. When he worked with a patient, he followed patterns of wind and water over the lake, the appearance of a fox on a wooded path, or a green-gold flying beetle at the window. He came to believe that each of us travels within a “circumambient atmosphere” charged by the usually unacknowledged archetypes that travel with us, generating synchronistic events.
Mark Twain is famous as a humorist, sage, prolific author, and profound student of the human condition. He was also a lifelong student of synchronicity. “I once made a great discovery,” he reported, “the discovery that certain sorts of things which, from the beginning of the world, had always been regarded as merely ‘curious coincidences’ — that is to say, accidents — were no more accidental than is the sending and receiving of a telegram an accident.” He was more than an observer of coincidence; he used it as a daily source of guidance and actively experimented with inviting synchronous events.
In this class, animated by stories from two tremendously creative lives lived in the consciousness of oracles around us, you’ll discover how to:
When we’re seized by terrible emotions of rage or grief in our own lives, we can choose to try to harness the raw energy involved and turn it — like a fire hose — towards creative or healing action. You may know already that on a path of transformation, you reach a point where you break down or you break through, and sometimes the breakdown comes before the breakthrough.
The story of the Descent of Inanna to the Underworld is seen by some groups today as the model for a woman’s journey to the depths to meet and integrate her shadow side. The myth does not explain clearly why the Goddess chose to go down seven terrifying levels to be hung on a meathook in the realm of her dark sister Ereshkigal.
We do know that she did this of her own volition. It was a choice she made freely. We know also, that after she came back, she forced her unwilling consort Dumuzi to make the Underworld journey. So this is a story for men as well as women — and maybe scarier for the men.
This week, you’ll discover how to:
We live by stories. Our first and best teachers, in our lives and in the evolution of our kind, instruct and inspire by telling stories. Story is our shortest route to the meaning of things, and our easiest way to remember and carry the meaning we discover. A good story lives inside and outside time, and gives us keys to a world of truth beyond the world of fact.
Consciously or unconsciously, our lives are directed by stories. If we’re not aware that we’re living a story, it’s likely we’re stuck inside a narrow and constricted one, a story bound tight around us by other people’s definitions and expectations. When we reach, consciously, for a bigger life story, we put ourselves in touch with tremendous sources of healing, creativity, and courage.
In this class, you’re invited to journey to an extraordinary place in the Imaginal Realm to deepen your understanding of the myths you’ve been living, and to claim the power of stepping into a bigger and braver story.
You’ll be able to:
Part of the secret logic of our lives may be that our paths constantly interweave with those of numberless parallel selves. The gifts and failings of these alternate selves may influence us, when our paths converge, in ways that we generally fail to recognize.
Connected in a multidimensional drama, this may generate events in both our lives that will appear as “chance.” Yet, the hidden hand suggested by synchronistic events may be that of another personality within our multidimensional family, reaching to us from what we normally perceive as past or future, or from a parallel or other dimension.
When you experience déjà vu and feel certain you’ve been in a certain situation before, you may be close on the heels of a parallel self who got there before you. Serial dreams, in which you find yourself returning to people and places not on your current event track may also be glimpses of a continuous life your parallel self is leading in a parallel world, in which you made different choices.
Physicist Brian Greene speculates we all have “endless doppelgangers” leading parallel lives in parallel universes. As Active Dreamers and kairomancers, we learn how to bring gifts and lessons from a parallel world into this one.
In this wildly exciting class, you’ll discover how to:
A kairomancer (a term Robert created) incorporates the name of Kairos, a Greek god who personifies a kind of time that is altogether different from tedious tick-tock time. It’s that special moment of jump time when more is possible than you imagined before. Kairos is the time you must seize by the forelock before it’s gone.
To follow the way of the kairomancer, you need to trust your feelings as you walk the roads of this world, develop your personal science of shivers, and recognize you know far more than you hold on the surface of consciousness.
You want to take dreams more literally and the events of waking life more symbolically. You need to take care of your poetic health, reading what rhymes in a day, or a season. You want to expect the unexpected, to make friends with surprises, and never miss that special moment.
This final week, you’ll play wonderful new games and bring alive more of the kairomancer’s way of conscious, creative living.
You’ll discover how to:
In addition to Robert’s transformative 9-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions. These bonus sessions are being offered to complement what you’ll learn in the course — and take your understanding and practice to a deeper level.
Consciously or unconsciously, our lives are directed by stories. If we’re not aware that we’re living a story, it’s likely we’re stuck inside a narrow and constricted one, a story bound tight around us by other people’s definitions and expectations. When we reach, consciously, for a bigger life story, we put ourselves in touch with tremendous sources of healing, creativity, and courage. This is what growing your personal mythology is all about. Stanley Krippner is a marvelous guide to navigate this adventure of a lifetime and how to understand, in scientific terms, how we generate different events and encounters according to the myths we carry in our minds and energy fields.
Join Robert and Stan for a lively conversation where you’ll explore how:
Stanley Krippner, PhD, professor of psychology at Saybrook University, is one of the towering scholars of consciousness in the world. Over many decades, he has pioneered the study of shamanism, dreaming, creativity, personal mythology, and paranormal abilities like telepathy and precognition, melding the best of scientific method with a deeply humanistic quest for meaning. He’s the author of hundreds of articles and research papers and author, co-author or editor of dozens of books including Personal Mythology, Extraordinary Dreams, and The Shamanic Powers of Rolling Thunder.
In this audio teaching, Robert tells stories from mythology, legend, and contemporary life about how dreams have guided the journey to the Beloved of the soul. You’ve felt it pulsing inside you: the yearning to be with the Beloved of your soul. The quest may take us, in this world, to seek the Mr. or Ms. Right who can satisfy us sexually, emotionally, spiritually. The trials on that road will involve recognizing and discarding our projections and the old histories that bind us. You’ll find yourself deep in mythic adventures as Robert takes you with his amazing power of storytelling into the trials of Psyche and the dreams of a Celtic king. You’ll learn, in arousing and also highly practical ways, that your dreams can give you road maps to your meeting with Mr. or Ms. Right. You’ll also be invited to make a journey of ascension from the heart center, powered by shamanic drumming, to meet the Beloved of your own soul on the highest level accessible to you right now.
Any Active Dreamer’s repertoire will be enriched by these three tools for deepening their experience. For your convenience, we’ve gathered together these fundamental resources from Robert’s previous courses at The Shift Network and offer them to you as the basic toolkit for Active Dreaming.
This course answered a deep need for me in many ways. It provided a structure and a place from which to vision, and travel into other dimensions, it allowed me to access my light, my guidance, and my connection beyond death...
— Hilary Farberow Stuart, Portland, Oregon
This course helped me to deepen my journeying practice, and clarified the focus for my professional, creative, and spiritual work. It created a space for me to tune in and expand out into new realms of understanding. I learned new ways to explore dreams and communication through the veils of death. And I always enjoy Robert’s wonderful storytelling style of teaching!
— Marta Aarli, Boulder, Colorado
This is my fifth online course with Robert and The Shift Network. My understanding of the multiverse has deepened under Robert’s expert guidance. I’m braving up to fresh experiences as I reclaim animal allies and my relationship to higher and deeper selves. Making death my ally teaches me how to live, and to live well is to marry the worlds of soul. I feel like a bride! I offer my deepest gratitude to the gatekeeper who has opened doors, gates, and paths that delight my soul.
— Julie Douglas, Melbourne, Australia
This course gave me a powerful and amazingly simple awareness of my connection to guides and ancestral spirits that are ever near. I gained a deep and abiding realization that my world of guidance and inspiration is so much larger and more easily accessible than I ever knew. I also discovered that I have within me the power to offer healing and comfort to others, of this world and beyond. Robert Moss is one of our great modern wisdom teachers. I will be continuing to learn from this course for a long time to come.
— Lauren-Miranda Gilbert, Brentwood, California
I personally believe there is no more profound and necessary teaching of Robert Moss needed at this time. His wisdom, gift of storytelling, compassion, and tools that he provides assuredly takes the dreamer beyond and ordinary life into an extraordinary one. PURELY MAGICAL. Another benefit is the group of dreamers that he attracts as this community is a compassionate and supportive community. This course is a blessing in every sense! Thank you dear Robert!
— Christopher Barrett, Boca Raton, Florida
I have learned things about traveling in other realms that I never learned in my shamanic training. I have “braved up” and gone to places and depths I didn’t know were possible. In the process, I’ve shifted old standing patterns that had stubbornly hung on. Robert Moss is an amazing instructor, highly knowledgeable, and worth every penny.
— Janice Dietert
The course gave me great insights about my own dreaming process. I learned how to interpret my dreams which allows me to understand myself better.
— Laura Gamboa, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Nobody does it like Robert Moss! Any Robert Moss class is an enlightening and amazing experience. You gain so much, in both education and growth via journeys and dreamstates, you hate to see the class end! I have had some fascinating experiences I would not have had if I had not taken his classes. I will always be grateful to Robert Moss, The Shift Network and fellow classmates who opened up and shared their own experiences, so everyone gained from all experiences shared and discussed. Loved his classes and hope to take another class in the future! Thank You for making these experiences possible!
— Lynniah, Erie, Pennsylvania

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
