Product Description

Modern physics tells us that we’re dreaming the world into being with every thought. The Courage to Dream Your Life tells us how to dream our world with power and grace. The ancient shamans of the Americas understood that we’re not only creating our experience of the world, but are dreaming up the very nature of reality itselfa??that is, “life is but a dream.” When you don’t dream your life, you have to settle for the nightmare being dreamed by others. This book shows how to wake up from the collective nightmare and begin to dream a life of courage and grace, a sacred dream that shamans throughout time have known and served.
Alberto Villoldo reveals ancient wisdom teachings that explain how to birth reality from the invisible matrix of creation; and reveals how we can interact with this matrix to dream a life of peace, health, and abundance. He shows us that courage is all that is required to create the joy we desire!

  • A surprise
    Wow! 5 star reviews! I am shocked, shocked :)

    This book is pure New Age. The man had a publishing contract and produced a collection of rehashed ideas which are neither here nor there. This is especially disappointing because I used to like him and respect his work. The only word that comes to mind now is: laziness. It is as if Villoldo wants everyone to see that he has stopped growing. And yes, so that he can continue charging $10,000 for a single course at his Organization. This book is about fleecing gullible customers. Not good. ...more info
  • I good book
    This is a really good book, not the best. There are some things taught in here that seem out of place, as well mis-interpritation of karma. The book is mainly about seeing this awaken realm and sleep realm as undifferent, yet in awaken reakm we dream up our world. It turns from traditional teachings to psychology. Which seem to spine of the spiritual path, but one has to meditate on the reading and allow self return back on the path for better understanding. The book can start with being fun, but it can also ride with depressing, but sooner or later it returns to something happy to read. The book seem not to well writen, much wors seemed lost it the typing that made when you read sound no real wording. It may just be the book was rushed to print? As for the nature of karma? He talks about karma as a baggage, which is a common new age belief. But that is wrong. What he was destribing was karmaic trace, which can create karma if one allows such to get out of control. While karma is action, in short. It is the Cause/Effect, Action/Reaction, Attachments. Which you think of a boomerang and glue paper. As karmic trace is more like a seeds of positive or negative that is embedaed in our self from some event. If the bad one explose, acting to it is acting on creating bad karma. Just leting it flow and not feeding into it, on prevents from creating bad karma.

    I had read his other book on healers and mediums before this book, and found it to be the best. This book seem to stay to the spiritual flow, too much more into science terms of explining something? All and all, it is a good book, and is very helpful, it just the book should of been writen more clearer and fun to read for easy learning....more info

  • Courageous Dreaming
    Courageous Dreaming: How Shamans Dream the World into Being

    This is the sixth of Alberto Villoldo's books I've read - in this instance am still reading - and as with the prior five, I am ever challenged to 'get out of my self' and just 'live or be' with his experiences and thoughts.

    "Courageous Dreaming" offers a 'blueprint' as to how we might alter our(my and yours) thoughts and beliefs so we each can live and become 'who we are.!!!'

    Make no mistake - it is not "'easy fix stuff'" he presents.

    I recommend that anyone seeking to 'connect' with our 'roots' as both physical and spritual beings read Villoldo's works.

  • Courageously Creating
    This book is about become lucid dreamers in our waking life.

    "Moreover, by dreaming courageously - that is, living a life that's in sync with your soul's desire for peace, meaning, and happiness - you'll find yourself starting to feel joyous and fulfilled no matter what is going on around you. You'll stop feeling trapped in that nightmare." From the book - page 23.

    So many of us get into a rut, and we don't even know we are in one. Maybe we get the impressive house, and the beautiful car and have successful careers - but find we are still unhappy. This makes no sense because society tells us that we should be happy because we have society's ideal of what the perfect life is.

    But when we are not paying attention to our soul's desires, we will always be unhappy and unfulfilled. We will always feel lost.

    I loved this book, because it tackles all those problems, and guides us back to the path of true, heart centered living. He talks about the four levels of consciousness (also the four archetypal animal forces of the earthkeeper shamans): Eagle, Hummingbird, Jaguar and Serpent. He also speaks of the importance of connecting in to humanity, living with intent, truth and integrity, clearing out negative thoughts patterns (judgment, fear, and other disempowering beliefs), and the importance of letting go of our old negative stories and traumas.

    I've read many a book on dreaming and consciously creating, and some of the information in this book was not knew to me. However, I still found it to be insightful, inspiring, and filled with new and helpful information. I think it's really important to tap into this aspect of ourselves, and consciously live our lives. When our soul is happy, fulfilled and peaceful, we are too!...more info

  • Learning to dream while awake
    As with his other books, I'm enjoying this creative dreaming book by Alberto. I know that he understands so much more about life and death than I do and I continuously strive to learn from him. I'm only about half through the book and have completed the exercises he suggests along the way. One has to believe in the divine and the light energy field around and through the body in order to understand and participate in the creation Alberto describes. Hopefully, more and more of us will begin to do this. It has the power to change the world as we know it! ...more info
