Bestselling Native American author and internationally renowned teacher and healer Jamie Sams – creator the Sacred Path Cards and the Medicine Cards offers her first book of practical advice for living on a spiritual path.
The result of nearly twenty-five years of intensive study with two Native American dreaming societies, Dancing the Dream draws our attention to the four directions of the Medicine Wheel (East, South, West, and North) and the three unseen directions – Above, Below, and Within – and explains how each of these seven directions represents a specific path on the spiritual journey. In the East, we encounter the first stirrings of the spirit; in the South, the healing of relationships; in the West, we work to build self-esteem; in the North, we learn wisdom and the opening of the heart; Above represents the world of spirit; Below, the earth; Within, full awareness of the present moment.
Most people will walk these paths in sequence. Some will never make it through all seven. Many will continue to move forward but continue to double back on earlier paths until they get things rights. But for those willing to walk all seven paths, there is the great reward of being able to see the world with the soaring vision of an eagle, fully aware and present to meet life’s challenges with vision, wisdom and purpose.

Walk the Seven Paths to Spiritual Enlightenment
From Jamie Sams, internationally renowned teacher and bestselling author, 'Dancing the Dream' is an exhilarating mix of instruction, guidance, and carefully imparted wisdom drawn from decades of study and training with two Native American dreaming societies. Here, Sams defines the seven paths of human spiritual development – and their direct correlation to the seven sacred directions: East, South, West, North, Above, Below, Within – and what it takes to move through them.
A powerful call to integrate the seen and unseen forces in our lives – our physical reality and the web of energy made up of all our feelings, thoughts, opinions, judgments, intentions, and desires – 'Dancing the Dream' offers instruction and guidance for creating an enormous shift in our personal relationships with the earth, our loved ones, friends and communities, and, most important, our own spiritual selves. With a chapter devoted to each of the seven paths, as well as a glossary of terms and phrases for quick reference, this is a guide to be consulted again and again as your spiritual journey unfolds.
