9780062515148: Dancing the Dream: The Seven Sacred Paths to Human Transformation (Religion and Spirituality)

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 in paperback 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.

Review:

‘A magnificent blueprint for transformation.’
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Be Careful What You Pray For… You Just Might Get It and Healing Words.

‘Sam draws upon sources of indigenous wisdom, the metaphoric world, and a depth of her own experience to become a guide for all who wish to grow wise themselves. Dancing the Dream illuminates paths of initiation through the difficulties and opportunities that life provides.’
Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D., author of Crossing to Avalon and Close to the Bone.

From the Back Cover:

FIND YOUR SACRED PATH

Widely recognized as one of the foremost teachers of Native American wisdom, Jamie Sams reveals the seven sacred paths of human spiritual development and explains how exploring each path leads to shifts in our personal relationships with the earth, our loved ones, friends and communities, and most important, our own spiritual selves. As part of a profound awakening process, these paths help us heal the past, shed fear of the future, andfocus on being aware and fully present in our daily lives. Ultimately , we discover that we are indeed dancing the dream.
