The collective dream of all humans is not a good dream at the present time. We need a new dream, a sustainable dream that is in tune with our planet’s dream. A collective dream starts with individual dreams. Let us gather to create new dreams for ourselves to contribute to the collective dream of all hu-mans.
I call the work contemporary shamanism because whilst it is based on the teaching of the ancient shamans – the “wise ones” and visionaries of the old cultures – it is nevertheless modern in approach and deals with the issues and difficulties of contemporary life. Shamanism has always been a non-dogmatic, adaptable set of philosophies, attitudes and pragmatic solutions as it has always responded to the needs of the people of the time.
Shamanism is a path to wisdom which is gained through experience of many facets of life, through rituals, ceremonies, prayer and meditation, trials and tests. It is not a belief system, it is a way of knowledge – that which is known from inside – that which stands up to tests and to the test of time, something that is proven to work, unlike beliefs which are something taken on from outside and not personally tested in the laboratory of life.

Maps of the Universe
When we go somewhere new, the first thing we usually do is check a map to help in plotting our course. But have you ever had a map of life? I didn’t until I discovered the Medicine Wheel – and what an extraordinary blessing it has been!
Shamanic Maps of How the Universe Works.
The View through the Medicine Wheel is a magnificent reflection on how to live creative, healthy and happy lives. We are all on a great journey -but how different life would be if you had a good map?
