Haunted Hotel?

It’s the height of monsoon season, and Phoenix has been begging for rain. I exit the I-10 interstate headed toward the Hotel San Carlos, and as I make my way from the exit ramp onto 7th Street, I see her: a young woman in the middle of the road dressed in a trench coat and high heels. It’s raining. She’s blond and glamorous looking, but nameless. I park in a metered spot on Monroe Street, and catch a glimpse of the place where I had seen the woman, but she’s no longer there. I make my way toward the hotel entrance, and I already know: this hotel is haunted. In the late 1870s, the site was home of Old Central School, a one-room adobe schoolhouse. After the schoolhouse was retired, investor Dwight B. Heard, purchased the site and began construction on the San Carlos in 1927.

I had no explanation for this. I started to notice that certain people among my peer group were more like me than most, and we instinctively gravitated toward each other. I felt like I had a “mission” on the planet, but...

Entering the Dream Gates: Robert Moss

In the last post we learned a bit about the fascinating life and work of Robert Moss.  In this post, we'll learn more about Robert and about his latest book—of poetry! In your book Dreamgates you describe several workshops in which there is an apparent connection between the star Sirius and the Ancient Egyptians.  Can you describe how you best understand the possibility of this connection? “I think that Egyptian initiates had a science of star travel, and that some of those elaborate temple-tombs were actually launch-pads and interdimensional gateways. In this tradition (as in that of the Dogon of Mai, who had charts showing Sirius B before astronomers could see it through a telescope) Sirius is the source of higher intelligence on this planet, and it was believed possible to return to that source through shamanic dream travel. In Dreamgates I describe a group journey I led to the intelligences of Sirius—identified by one of my inner guides by an...
