He is a storyteller, helping people find and live their bigger and braver stories. As a dream teacher, he creates original dreams, an original synthesis of dreamwork and shamanism. His three-year-long program for teachers of lucid dreaming are highly esteemed.
Robert also worked as a lecturer of ancient history at the Australian National University. He has become the best-selling novelist and is widely known for his writing work. He is an author of twelve books on dreaming, shamanism and imagination. Robert has conducted big and famous seminars at several centres such as Institute, Kripalu, the Omega Institute, the New York Open Center, Bastyr University, John F. Kennedy University, Meriter Hospital, and many other centres and institutions. He also leads workshops based on active dreaming in the UK, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Romania, Brazil and Austria.
Robert earned his early education at Scotch College, Melbourne and Canberra Grammar School. After completing his high school, he went to Australian National University where he acquired BA and an MA degree. Then, he moved to University College, London, for doing his PhD research. While pursuing a PhD, he received an invitation to join the editorial staff of The Economist. He served as an editorial writer and special correspondent for The Economist from 1970 through 1980. During this time, he also wrote for several other publications such as The Daily Telegraph, the New York Times Magazine, the New Republic and Commentary.
Robert was the first person who identified the emergence of international terrorism in his paper presented to the International Institute of Strategic Studies in 1971. Afterwards, he expended his paper into his first book Urban Guerrillas which was published when Robert was 25 years old. From 1971 through 1980, he worked as visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Defence Studies in London. Robert received Freedom Prize of the Max Schmidheiny Foundation at the University of St. Gallen in 1979. In 1980, he co-authored a book named “The Spike with Arnaud de Borchgrave” which became the best-selling book of that year.
After the success of this book, Robert decided to pursue a career as a full-time writer. He published a series of best-selling suspense novels consisting of Moscow Rules and Carnival of Spies. In 1986, after getting tired from the world of big cities and fast-paced life of a popular novelist, he moved to farm in the upper Hudson Valley of New York. Shortly, Robert began dreaming in a language that he did not know that proved to be an archaic form of the Mohawk language. Some native speakers helped him to explain his dreams, and he started believing that those dreams had put him in touch with an ancient healer, an arendiwanen, and were calling him to a different life.
After having these experiences, he wrote a series of historical novels and developed the practice he calls Active Dreaming. Robert has been seen several times on many TV and radio shows, from Charlie Rose and the Today show to Coast to Coast and the Diane Rehm show on NPR.
