This paragraph is from my book, 'Jaguar in the Body, Butterfly in the Heart: The Real-life Initiation of an Everyday Shaman': «Dreaming has always been both an important refuge and a place of deep learning for me. For as long as I can remember, some of my dreams have had an oracular quality, revealing what has been hidden and illuminating the way forwards. Over the years, I’ve come to trust these dreams. They provide guidance that I’ve learned it’s always in my best interests to follow. After a month of sunrise rituals and dream intentions, I had one of these dreams. It was the early spring of 1995.
