Early this morning I had the most extraordinary dream. The first part of the dream was very complex and deep and I do not remember it well. I know I was in an apartment in a city having a very deep discussion with others, and I think the topic might have been on death...
Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: This article is a bit different than most which we feature here on Dream Medicine. I discovered Sandra's dream on Facebook and asked her permission to share it. Some dreams are so sacred and so beautiful that they cry out to be shared. This one, in particular, has great relevance to today. With the continued desecration of this beloved Earth, we need the kinds of reminders that this dream brings to us.
In addition, I am delighted to have Sandra Ingerman featured on Dream Medicine. She is not only a world-renowned author and teacher, she is a beautiful person. And clearly a powerful dreamer, as well.

During a ceremony circle, atop a red rock vista in Sedona, Arizona with a group of old and new friends, I received a message about the birth of the new world and how the dimensions are now beginning to merge. Unfortunately we didn't record the message, so here I will do my best to recall what I received . . .

To ask how I became a shaman or learned my shamanic practice are reasonable questions, and commonly asked. However I cannot directly answer these questions as they do not in themselves allow for the reality of my shamanic experience...
Editor’s Note from Peter Clark: Geoff’s story is illustrative of several important facts. Firstly, shamanic practitioners can come from all walks of life. Secondly, the shamanic path invariably begins at birth… or before. Everyone has a shamanic ancestry however how close or distant. When someone is born with their shamanic eyes and ears turned on, that is a beautiful thing…

Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche is considered to be the tantric Buddha who first brought Buddhism to Tibet, but to many shamans in the Himalayas he is considered to be the ‘first shaman’.
Whether seen from a Buddhist or shamanic viewpoint, Padmasambhava is a being who is able to manipulate reality and the beings who dwell in it in a very magical way, and there is no doubt that the teachings left by him have great power...
Editor's Note: In this article, Nicholas Breeze Wood gives us the story of Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche, consideredto be the tantric Buddha who first brought Buddhism to Tibet.

The Wine Spirit is an ancient being who has been brought into ceremony and shared her knowledge and healing with people since pre-historic times. (My sudden reflections on the significance of wine in the Christian sacraments began to take on a whole new meaning.) My plant spirit guide, continued to explain that the mind altering medicinal plants might be seen on a hierarchical ladder…
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Ever wonder why alcohol is referred to as “spirits”? One possible answer to that question is contained in this article written by Sarah Finlay. The shamanic worldview holds that all physical forms have associated spirit aspects. Some physical/spirit partnerships have stronger affect on us people than others. This article puts forward a fascinating theory about the spiritual effects of alcohol, and how our awareness and intention is vital to our health in conjunction with the ingestion of the physical/spirit substance.

Reconnecting with the spirit of the earth is our deepest healing! Geomancy and the study of Earth Mysteries are returning as recognized and respected fields of knowledge and practice. As our world becomes less stable we turn back to what worked in the past. It is time we transition from a state of reaction and unconsciousness regarding our world, to deep awareness, love and partnership; co-creating with the Earth the vibrant, harmonious world of our dreams...
