â‘ Active Dreaming: Journeying beyond self-limitation to a life of wild freedom by Robert Moss. Active Dreaming is a way of being fully of this world while maintaining constant contact with another world, the world-behind-the-world, where the deeper logic and purpose of our lives are to be found.
Active Dreaming offers three core areas of practice: talking and walking our dreams to bring energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life; shamanic lucid dreaming; and conscious living.
Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. They choose not to buy into self-limiting beliefs or the limited models of reality suggested by others. Active dreamers learn to grow a dream of possibility, a dream strong enough to take them beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight.

About the Author
In this engaging book, Barbara Black Koltuv, Ph.D, shares her wisdom, knowledge and her insightful approach to dreamwork to illuminate how each of us can find the way to Self-knowing, renewal, and healing. Dr. Koltuv evokes the image of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem as a place of dreams and soulful dreamwork. At the Wall, we offer up our prayers to God, and at the Wall, if we listen closely, we can hear the voice of God within us. Dr. Koltuv uses this metaphor of the Wall as the conduit, the listening heart between the dreamer and the hidden voice waiting to be heard within the soul. In Nights by the Wall, Koltuv leads us through the realm of dreamwork to show how, through our dreams, we can come to know our Self in a complete and truthful way. Simply writing down dreams, and allowing them to matter, opens a sacred pathway to healing, wholeness, and joy. Dreams are the heart’s knowledge and the guiding words of the soul. They give us a symbol system and a personal soul language by which we can know and become our most authentic Self.

After receiving her Ph.D. degree from Columbia University, Dr. Koltuv graduated from the New York University Post Doctoral Program in Psychoanalysis where she studied dream work intensively with Erich Fromm.

â‘ No More Regrets: 30 ways to greater happiness and meaning in your life by Marc Muchnick. Why do we have regrets—and what can we do about it?
We all want to live a life without regrets. Whenever we do something we wish we hadn’t—or don’t do something we wish we had—we vow it won’t happen again. But why do we have regrets in the first place?
Because we become prisoners of habit and circumstance, we take people in our lives for granted and fail to be true to ourselves. We stop growing and learning, become self-absorbed and judgmental, and lose touch with our innate goodness. Inspired by his final conversation with a dying friend, Marc Muchnick’s No More Regrets! is specifically designed to help you avoid these pitfalls.
Just one or two of the thirty ways to greater happiness and meaning outlined here could potentially change your life. Muchnick’s suggestions are straightforward, thoughtful, and easy to implement—often just a matter of shifting perspective and seeing the world differently. He illustrates each with a moving personal story and includes a “No More Regrets! Game Plan” tool to help you banish regret from your life forever.

â‘ The Shadow's Gift: Find out who you really are by Robin Robertson, PhD. Real-life stories of out-of-body experiences, encountering a special light, greeters from the afterlife, life reviews, tunnels, and 360-degree vision--are all part of this intriguing look at near-death experiences (NDEs) by one of the world's noted authorities, P.M.H. Atwater. Atwater shares her amazing findings, based on her sessions with more than 4,000 adults and children, and over 40 years of research; a breathtaking culmination to a successful and controversial career.

â‘ The Three Dangerous Magi: Osho, Gurdjieff, Crowley by P.T. Mistlberger. The Most Dangerous man since Jesus Christ, the Sex Guru, the Ambassador from Hell, the Black Devil of Ashkhabad, The King of Depravity, and the Wickedest Man in the World. These were some of the labels given to three of the most notorious figures of 20th century spirituality: Osho (formerly known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), G.I. Gurdjieff, and Aleister Crowley. Beneath the controversies and scandals that swirled around all three the author argues that these men, egocentric tendencies notwithstanding, were brilliant thinkers and extraordinary masters of their craft, that of the science of inner transformation, and in particular the art of balancing the so called Left and Right Hand spiritual paths. These men were not humble sages. They were bona fide crazy wisdom masters and consistently went where angels fear to tread. They did not teach with the faint praise of new age fluff or the stuffy platitudes of religious sermons, but rather with a flaming sword, and were a genuine menace to all seekers who fear to face the abyss of their own egos.

â‘ The Well that Never runs dry by The Scribe/Joann Davis. After a package from an antiquarian bookshop in Frankfurt, Germany arrives in Dorset, Vermont, the recipient finds that it contains a mysterious note and rare book. Efforts to translate the book result in The Well That Never Runs Dry, a companion to The Book of the Shepherd and a journey of discovery that leads to a place of faith, hope, and love.
The story begins with Elizabeth, a midwife, who discovers the body of a small child drowned in a rain-swollen river. Left alone to care for her adopted brother, David, after the shepherd, Joshua, has gone to resettle the victims of the flood, Elizabeth is plagued by age-old questions: Why do the righteous suffer? Why does God take children before their time? Does a man soweth as he reapeth?
Elizabeth sleeps and dreams of “The Well That Never Runs Dry,” which she is called to seek out and which she hopes will provide solace in this time of sadness. Together with young David and her cousin, Miriam, they set out to discover the Well. En route, they meet a cast of characters including The Story Teller, The Lamp Lighter, and The Beggar Woman, each of whom imparts a story and provides clues that lead to the sacred well where Elizabeth and her companions uncover one of the greatest lessons of all—the absolute power of love.
