Adventures in Consciousness

The Adventures in Consciousness forum is a new NewWorldView forum moderated by Sean Foreman:

Sean is a long time Seth reader who is working his way through the Seth material book by book with an emphasis on the material on dreams, lucid dreaming, and projections of consciousness. He began with Book 1 of The Early Sessions and is creating a self-guided course of study that anyone can follow.

How far you go is entirely up to you, but Sean will be sharing various tools, practices, and tips to assist in your own exploration of what Seth calls the "unknown" reality.

Read Sean's Welcome & Overview:

The Dream Catcher

The Dream Catcher is a forum to discuss and interpret dreams. It will also be a place for advice, discussing lucid dreams and other psychic or spiritual phenomena.

This group is intended for two types of people. Those who are talented at interpreting dreams and those who are looking for answers to their dreams.

Thanks very much!

Famous dream discoveries

Brilliant Dreams highlights twelve famous discoveries and creativity attributed to dreams. From Paul McCartney's "Yesterday" to Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein", dreams have played a major role in human creativity, discovery and invention.

Brilliant Dreams produces and markets dream enhancement and sleep beneficial products.

Beta testing the Dream Registry

Dear dreamers!

You're invited to test the Dream Registry:

All comments on any aspect of the website will be seriously considered.

I think that the Dream Registry will eventually accept all kinds of dreams, but I have to start somewhere, so psi dreams and especially precognitive dreams is what I'd like to focus on first.

Early March I want to invite dreamers to join a few adventures in precognitive dreaming.

Best wishes,

Culture Dreaming is an experimental ritual that gives a living sense of interconnection. First, dreams are told in Quaker fashion, with no comment. Then we explore together the composite dream just co-created. Dreams become a camera obscura or hologram showing surprising relevance to both individual and larger social concerns. Observers welcome. Come once, occasionally, or regularly.

Robert Gongloff: Dream Exploration - A New Approach

Dreams speak to us in a symbolic language. From night to night, those symbols and images can appear wildly different. But in truth, they are likely replaying an important theme in your life, a vital message from your dream world to your conscious mind.

While most dream books focus on symbolism, Dream Exploration helps readers go deeper by exploring the themes presented in dream life and their relationship to waking life. Written as a how-to guide, this first-of-its-kind book includes a twelve-step process that helps you identify core themes in your life and how best to grow with them. Also included is a theme matrix that offers practical actions readers can take to move beyond their dreams.

Ritual DaFuMu for Peace

The World Dreams Peace Bridge, on the 15th of each month, is holding a monthly DaFuMu - a collective dream of good fortune - to support peace.

In joining a DaFuMu each month we will be seeking the mandala of peace within the universal mind: learning what it is to be peaceful at a personal level, how to act in a peaceful manner within the world, and accessing and supporting the general mandala of peace available to all people. So, please join in on the 15th of each month. Before sleeping set your intention to dream towards the mandala of peace.

If you feel that your dream has touched upon a symbol that can be used within the mandala of peace we are creating, or on a particular relation of peace, please let us know. Just send your comment, picture or dream to:
