Modern physics tells us that we’re dreaming the world into being with every thought. The Courage to Dream Your Life tells us how to dream our world with power and grace.

I enjoyed reading this book.This book talks about our dreams and how, through our stories, we make them reality.

Must say it was not really what I expected.....but it really hit the spot at this point in my life. This book will definitely affect each person all depends on where you are in 'your soul's progress'. I have started another one of Villoldo's books.

A how-to-live-brave book, about our power to change the dreams we are experiencing as so called reality everyday into something beautiful and great, for our greater good. I see things differently now. Read it. Alberto is a very gifted writer and spiritual guide.
Too much focus on the negative sides of human nature, creating a negative feeling while reading this book. Nothing I found inspiring. Sadly, it actually has very little to do with Shamans or their teachings. All in all, a waste of time.

Started reading it and was enjoying it, but got distracted by other things. I want to get back to it sometime.
