Every once in a while, I'll go to a bookstore and buy a book with no clear reason why or even a notion of when I'll read it. This book was one of them. After a few weeks of it on my shelf, I started it. I think its subtly changed my life or, at least, my relationship to my dreams.

Moss offers a very sane view of dreams, backed up with years of personal experience, study, and work facilitating dream groups. He suggests that while dreams have a psychological component, they're also spiritual in nat

At first I enjoyed reading this book but, same like the other one I've read, I get some difficulties finishing it. The first chapters are very basic... sharing information you will read in any (beginners) book about dreaming: keeping a dream journal, incubation and so on. The rest of the book is about shamanic dreaming. To me, the title is kinda misleading... conscious dreaming while half of the book is about daydreaming (drumming and re-entering the dream with visualization) and (same like the ...more

This is one of the best books on dreaming that I've ever read.

I've always had some really crazy dreams, some of them seemed pretty big, and because of that, I have spent a lot of time learning about them. I studied Jung, Ann Faraday, and others in an effort to understand if... or what they might be saying.

Of course he uses a lot of fringe science, saying that we leave our bodies, or visit with "spirits," things like that. But I like it for a couple of reasons. He's consistent. He's not using the

Whether you think dreaming is all in your head or — at least occasionally — a connection to a wider reality than we typically perceive, Conscious Dreaming is compelling to read. Moss's view of dreams definitely favors viewing them as having the potential for oracular information and contacts with beings outside oneself, though he does also talk briefly in this book about dreams providing creative inspiration.

This is absolutely one of the best books I've read ever.

The author suffered extremely poor health as a child and worked with his dreams from an early age, having many dream visitors/guides, including Philemon, whom he later discovered had been one of C.G. Jung's guides.

I lack words to express the richness of the book. The author shares freely with us his many exceptional dream experiences, including with guides and shamans.

We learn about conscious dreaming, which phrase the author prefers to th

Recently, my fascination with dreaming has become more intense. There are so many aspects I've wanted to explore. When someone says, "so you want to learn how to interpret dreams?" I become a bit agitated. That truly should be each of our individual goals to some extent. To me dreaming is at least a third of my life - I want to adventure there often, like I want to walk often & breathe always. I want to see, feel and hear stories - or visit with loved ones or long lost friends. I want to gli ...more

This was a very eye-opening book. It was recommended by the author to start with this one before moving on to his others.

Couldn't finish this book. It was a chore to get as far as I did but finally put it down when the author suggested one should masturbate themselves into a frenzy in order to astral project. I'm not a prude but this seems a lot ridiculous.

This book has supported my further exploration of the realm of dreaming, revealing it to be filled with potential teachers and guides. For numerous generations, this realm has served indigenous peoples across the Earth as a gateway to knowledge integral to their synergistic relationship with creation, both physically and in the form of spirit. I have only begun to tap this resource for my own better understanding of how to live in respectful and beautiful relationship with all life.

This was the first book that I read by Robert Moss. If you're at all into dreams this is a great book that brings together many ways of looking at and interpreting dreams. Moss teaches that the only person who can interpret your dreams is yourself. He gives good exercises and talks about dreams in a practical non woo-woo sort of way. He talks about dreams as a tool for our lives throughout his books. They are all insightful and I recommend them without question.

I read this book ten years ago and I had to read it again. It is not only an amazing reference, but also a good story of someone who had a strange childhood and a rich dream life. Moss is an excellent teacher- I got to take a workshop with him during grad school in SF. It was amazing, but the next best thing is reading this book. Just as good the second time. An excellent reference for those who want to have a stronger and more meaningful relationship to their dreams.

Literally changed my life. I find so much positivity in this book, and couldn't of sparked a greater fire of interest in dreaming. I now keep a daily dream journal and archive every dream I remember in the morning which on average is 2 a night. I've remembered 6 different ones from one night thanks to this book!!

A good book for beginning dream workers. Mr. Moss writes in a direct style, not using an overwhelming amount of terms that you find yourself running to the dictionary to understand. He is a very empowering teacher.

The best most useful book on dreams and how to relate to them in a meaningful and useful way I have read. Am currently reading it for the second time after ten years. I feel old.

Powerfully influenced me and my reverence to my dream-life. Moss's writing is clear and elegant and he leaves me endlessly intrigued by the bigger picture behind our lives.

Great read regardless of your religious background. The author simply asks you to be open to dreaming. Very powerful and revealing of ones inner (no)self.
