Dream Healing in Southern African with John Lockley

The shamanic odyssey of John Lockley takes us deeper on a path in which the patient becomes the initiate. He was called by the “calling illness” the Xhosa call  thwasa illness and by dreams to become a white sangoma.. He reports that in southern Africa, “dreams are an essential part of everyday life. Our soul, or spirit, is seen to connect with us through our dreams, keeping us in alignment with our earth walk and day-to-day lives. If someone doesn’t remember their dreams, they are seen as being out of balance with the world around them because they don’t know what is happening to their soul.”

Lockley tells us “the Xhosa elders recognized my sangoma gift as evidenced by my dreams and further confirmed by their own dreams about me. They welcomed me in as family and were not perturbed in the least by my white skin or the fact that I am not a native Xhosa man” He talks with Robert about how ancestral wisdom-keepers may reach outside their lineage for new ambassadors and practitioners.

Robert Extemporizes on Dreaming for Soul and Survival
Most human societies across history have valued dreams and dreamers for three reasons. They have seen dreaming as a field of interaction between humans and the more-than-human: the god/goddess we can talk to, the ancestors or nature spirits, a tutelage daimon or greater Self. The have found that dreaming, we are time travelers and can see future events in a way to prepare for them or reshape them. And they have regarded dreaming as medicine in several senses: dreams diagnose our physical, emotional and mental condition – and the state of our souls – and can offer remedies and even a direct encounter with a sacred guide and healer.
Hear Robert speak from his decades of study of cross-cultural traditions about insights and practices we can use to empower our lives today.

Healing through Active Dreaming with Anna Bromley
English writing coach and active dreamer Anna Bromley talks with Robert about how dreamwork – especially the powerful techniques of dream incubation and dream reentry – helped her weather a life-threatening illness while avoiding radical surgery and chemotherapy. Her new book A Wild Adventure on the Big C flies us to Crete where the old deities of healing rise from the ruined temple of Asklepios. Anna talks about how, as a seasoned shamanic dream journeyer,. she has been able to sit down to tea with a parallel self and discuss how they can share their gifts.
She wants readers to take from her book the understanding that “our bodies are far more magical than we give them credit for. God designed them to be able to heal anything, when we give them the right circumstances. Our dreams and journeys can help us find out what those circumstances are and what we can do to tailor our healing to what is exactly right for us as individuals. We are all sovereign beings, with free will and we are powerful creators, able to choose exactly what we want in our lives. So if you don’t like what is happening in your life, then choose something different. I chose to step out of suffering and to live with more magic and more of what I love in my life and you can all do the same.”

Yogananda in the Multiverse with Rizwan Virk

In the 1920s Paramahansa Yogananda suggested that the world is a motion picture. A century later, inThe Simulation Hypothesis and The Simulated Multiverse, MIT physicist and game designer Rizwan Virk hypothesizes that reality is more like a complex interactive video game. In his new book, Wisdom of a Yogi, Riz marries this idea to what he has learned from Yogananda. He encourages us to mine precepts for conscious living from the great yogi, such as: Setbacks May Be Part of Your Story, Make Little Pilgrimages, Practice EveryDay – and follow the play of synchronicity as a set of clues to hidden treasures. Robert and Riz also talk about how Yogananda was schooled in the geography of the astral worlds in a visitation by his deceased guru.

Dream Yoga and Conscious Dreaming with Andrew Holecek

“When I finally came upon the Buddhist teachings on dream yoga, which is when you strive to have lucid dreams with the goal of doing specific practices with them, I knew I had come home”. The voice is that of Andrew Hiolecek, a man of many parts – classical-level pianist, author, dental surgeon, athlete, longtime teacher of Vajrayana meditation in his book Dream Yoga. What is the difference between dream yoga and lucid dreaming? Andrew suggests, beyond the spiritual orientation and cultural symbols of dream yoga, a very interesting distinction:while lucid dreaming emphasizes the differences between waking and sleeping, dream yoga focuses on their similarities. In lively conversation with Robert, Andre explains the eyes-open yoga of “illusory forms”, the interplay of “appearances” and “emptiness”, illusion and reality, and how through conscious dreaming you can accumulate frequent flying miles for your journey beyond death..

The Joy of Dream Sharing with Chelsea Lee

Minnesota-based dream teacher and artist Cheslea Lee joins Robert for a fun hour demonstrating the LIghtning Dreamwork Game and talking about life-guiding dreams and the foibles of our dream producers. Robert recounts a New Year’s Day dream in which he delights in the breath of a new baby after a wild ride by a long blue lake, and we are reminded of the double joy of sharing dreams in the right way. We recognize something of ourselves in the archetypes and universal motifs that feature in each other’s dreams – the new baby, the life road. At the same time, as we go into the details of a dream, we see that each dream has features unique to the individual. The snake or the baby in your dream is not the snake or the baby in mine, yet we can talk about what it would mean to me if it were my dream, and what I would do to bring its energy and guidance into everyday life.

Rewilding the Sacred Masculine with Sophie Strand
Author, poet and eco-feminist Sophie Strand has written a wild and lovely dithyramb to Dionysus titled The Flowering Wand. She fulfills her promise to reroot myths and sacred teaching stories that have been reduced to houseplants, marrying her love of the deep, loamy mycelial earth to wide-ranging reading and scholarship. In a thrilling conversation with Robert, they play at revisioning the stories in which we can find ourselves. What if Sleeping Beauty brings back a hundred years of dreams and myths to a sleeping world when she opens her eyes? Who is the young David who listens to “the goings in the tops of the mulberry trees” when he comes from tending sheep and fighting lions to do battle with Goliath and the Philistines? What if Yeshua is related to the “vegetal gods” who die and come back from the depths of earth?

Deep Knowing with Kim Hermanson

When Maureen’s mother lost the power of speech, she found that she could still communicate with her in dreams and dreamlike states. They found places together where Mom was unimpaired, could explain what she wanted and needed, and could let loose and sing, as she loved to do. At a certain point they became a threesome; a marvelous being Mauureen calls her mother’s Greater Self came to join their conversations.

Mirrors in the Earth with Asia Suler

A beloved herbalist and earth keeper, Asia Suler reveals herself in conversation with Robert as an enchanting poet of consciousness who rouses us to heal our lives by telling better stories about them. Robert writes about Mirrors in the Earth:

Read Asia Suler’s lovely book and your world will tilt. You’ll not only see that the world is your mirror but that the world is looking at you. You will learn from willow that what breaks can give birth, and from beech that it may be okay to hold onto your leaves for longer than the almanac says. Born highly sensitive with a skin as thin as ephemeral bloodroot petals in early spring, Asia healed herself in communion with nature, in a Brooklyn garden as well as on wild Appalachian trails and Florida springs. Now she comes tripping lightly through the ladyslipper orchids with a willow twig between her teeth to help us to heal by making our confessions to the forgiving land, by aligning ourselves with earth cycles of regeneration – and by recalling that the plots of our lives, like gardens, require boundaries.

Dreaming with the Kabbalah of Light with Catherine Shainberg

Robert talks with a profound teacher of Kabbalah, transpersonal psychologist, and founder of the School of Images about the power of dreaming to carry us to enlightenment and the power of imagery to heal body and soul and ancestral relations. Catherine describes how dreams and an inner voice brought her to study with the renowned Kabbalist teacher Colette Aboulker-Muscat in Israel and to join a mystical lineage dating back to the 13th century in Girona and Southern France. She offers two of her powerful short  imaginal exercises to carry us to a place of vision. She inspires us to plunge deep into the ocean of dreams and access gifts of the great unconscious and superconscious that are hidden from the everyday trivial mind. She speaks of the life project she announces in these rousing terms in her new book, The Kabbalah of Light: “This is a journey back to the pure light of Eden, where human and God and human gaze into each other and become one. This can only be accomplished by dreaming.”

The Simulated Universe with Rizvwan Virk
What if we are living in a computer-generated reality, like the one in The Matrix or in The Thirteenth Floor? Join Robert and MIT scientist, video game designer, entrepreneur and author Rizwan Virk for an exciting conversation about the nature of reality in the Many Worlds and what we can learn from fiction and film in our popular culture. Riz is an enthusiast for the work of Philip K. Dick (as is Robert) and you’ll hear them discuss PKD’s declaration (which shocked his audience at Metz in 1977) that
“We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in reality occurs. We would have the overwhelming impression that we were re-living the present – déjà vu – perhaps in precisely the same way: hearing the same words, saying the same words.”
Robert and Riz explore questions raised by Riz’s new book The Simulated Multiverse. Would we live more creatively if we took the view that life challenges are like quests and achievements in a video game and that we can step in and out of self-identification with our current avatar?  If we are in a simulation, can we be programmers as well as players? Here’s where dreaming may be an essential tool. Riz asks, “What if we are still at the controls each night, planning out what might happen next, and then making choices to guide the game along one timeline or another?” Even  when we don’t remember and are clueless about what is going on.

Dreams at the Threshold with Jeanne van Bronkhurst

Jeanne spent many years as a hospice social worker and grief counselor helping the elderly and their families approach death and dying with courage and grace. Her book Dreams at the Threshold is one of the most valuable I know on the vital theme of inviting dreams to help midwife death. deeply simple and simply deep.  She shows us, with a wealth of moving stories, that we don’t need to be experts to help others with their dreams. All we need is to hold a safe space, encourage someone (here, usually terminal patients) to tell a dream if so inclined, and then listen with full attention without trying to interpret or analyze. A person who has been bedridden for months now finds that she has a story to tell, and communication with her family opens up. She may soon become aware that she is receiving visitations from departed loved ones and has guides with familiar faces for the tremendous journey that lies ahead. This is the substance of a grand conversation..

Dream Incubation with Kelly Kydick

The Art of Transforming Nightmares with Clare Johnson

Dreams, even the scary ones, are not on our case; they are on our side. Writing from this essential perspective, in her new book The Art of Transforming Nightmares  Clare Johnson gives us practical guidance on how to use “bad” dreams and nightmares as portals to healing and transformation. She observes that some “bad” dreams are telepathic or precognitive, part of our innate intuitive radar. She encourages us to grow our dream lucidity in order to confront and resolve nightmare challenges on their own ground, and to understand that recurring dreams may be playing again and again because we have failed to receive an important message or, no less important, to act on it.

Painting with Words with Marta Aarli


 Psychotherapist, dream teacher, singer, dancer, and visual artist Marta Aarli talks with Robert about how her dreams flow into poetry. She says, “I’m interested in how to be the fullest, most integrated beings we can be. This includes our many parts – the analytic and emotional, verbal and non-verbal, earthly and spiritual, waking and sleeping, seen and unseen, conscious and unconscious, weaving together into fluid wholeness. I see poetry as a contemplative practice, to be with what is happening now inside our being and around us in the environment. When we express our inner worlds, we connect with others, invite them in, see our common experiences. Or perhaps we find that we are already roaming the halls of these vast universal realms together, in our dreams.”

with Rodger Kamenetz
“A dream provides an exact tincture of the soul, a strong whiff – ammonia or perfume – to wake us from a faint-hearted life,” declares Rodger Kamenetz in The History of Last Night’s Dream.

Breaking a Dream Drought with Monica Kenton
How many people tell you they don’t remember dreams? Or, worse, that they “never” dream? In contemporary society, dream drought is a widespread affliction, almost a pandemic. This is deadly serious, because night dreams are an essential corrective to the delusions of the day. In this program Robert offers five simple, practical ways to break a dream drought.

Dreaming in Catalonia with Jordi Borras

“The dream knows,” says Catalan psychologist and dream explorer Jordi Borras, who brings the gift of dreaming to many through his courses in dream integration and his work in radio, television and film in Catalonia.  Robert and Jordi share their experiences of helping young children with dreams and learning from them.  Kids put adults back in touch with experiences adults may consider extraordinary, but are entirely natural in the childhood worlds of dreaming, as in the shaman’s.  Kids also need help with scary stuff.  Jordi gave one of his daughters a rag doll call Lluna (Moon) and told her to make drawings of bad dreams and put them in Lluna’s pocket; Moon would eat them overnight.

Hear Robert and Jordi share their personal dreams and their passions for helping to rebirth a dreaming society. Jordi is one of those who understands deeply that dreams require much more than analysis; they require creative action to embody their healing energy and guidance.

Jean Campbell, Dreaming Humanity’s Path
While we tend to think of dreams as private and personal, dreaming is actually a highly social activity. We get out and about; we visit other people and have shared adventures. It is understandable that our dreams may overlap or interweave with people we know; we are connected, and have common concerns and desires. More startling is the fact that vast numbers of people who are strangers to each other sometimes dream the same theme. For example, thousands of dreamers all over the world reported dreams directly related to the tragedy of 9/11. Great events, as Goethe observed, cast a shadow before them, and we share dreams about situations and events affecting the welfare and survival of humanity. People connected by a common cause or affinity may find themselves engaged in dreaming with and for a whole group.    Robert discusses this practice and the many modes of social and telepathic dreaming with Jean Campbell, Editor of the International Association for the Study of Dreams’ magazine DreamTime and a member of the IASD Board of Directors.  She is founder and director of The World Dreams Peace Bridge (  Jean is author/editor of several books including Group Dreaming: Dreams to the Tenth Power and Sleep Monsters and Superheroes: Empowering Children through Creative Dreamplay.

Toko-pa Turner, author of Dreams of Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home
Robert talks to Canadian dreamworker and author Toko-pa Turner about how dreaming can help us to bring more or soul and self into embodied life and authentic community.

“We are literally made of story. Every night, something in our biology compulsively spits out dream-stories in order to keep us healthy. As essential as breathing, these stories have layers of usefulness that are part self-regulatory, part transmission of wisdom, and part connective tissue to a networked intelligence unconstrained by time and space.” – Toko-pa Turner, Belonging

Kimberly Mascaro, author of Extraordinary Dreams
We discuss dreams that deal with mortal issues, like birth and death and major life choices. Kim has made a special study of dreams – of both mothers and fathers – in relation to pregnancy. “Announcing dreams” may introduce the child who is going to born, revealing not only its gender but its preferred name and basic personality. Such dreams can open a deep bonding experience between the unborn child and the parents and make the baby-to-be a conscious participant in the whole delivery process. We also talk about dreams that prepare the dying for the big journey ahead and may provide first-hand confirmation of the survival of consciousness after physical death.

Mitch Horowitz, author of The Miracle Club: How Thoughts Generate Reality
We explore one of my favorite themes: how the imagination is an engine of manifestation. Mitch is well-known as a “participating historian” of esoteric ideas, New Thought and alternative spirituality. I especially like how he encourages us in his new book to spend more time in the creative space of the hypnagogic state between sleep and awake:

“The state of hypnagogia presents us with what might be considered prime time for channeling the energies of thought…The hypnagogic state is one of the rare times when almost anyone can use mental images to induce emotion. I advise using the hypnagogic state to picture the achievement of a cherished aim…Feel the pleasure of attainment.”
