Robert is the creator of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of dreamwork and shamanic techniques for empowerment and healing. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood. As an adult his life pivoted around a sequence of dreams dreamt in a foreign language, archaic Mohawk. With help from native speakers to interpret these dreams Moss came to believe that they had put him in touch with an ancient healer – a woman of power – and that these dreams were calling him to a different life
Beginning as a professor of ancient history at the Australian National University, Moss now leads popular seminars all over the world, including a three-year training for teachers of Active Dreaming and a lively online dream school. He is a bestselling novelist, shamanic counselor, and the author of eight books on dreaming and shamanism, including Conscious Dreaming, Dreamgates, Dreamways of the Iroquois, The Three “Only” Things, The Secret History of Dreaming and Active Dreaming: Journeying Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom.
