An important message for our times but it’s just a primer introducing new (ancient) terminology and ideas to the ‘civilized’ types. If you’re looking for teachings, you’ll have to go elsewhere; but, some interesting, albeit brief, anecdotes from which there isn’t much to extrapolate are included. As for the writing... the editor could have done better. But, this was published in 1994 and I guess I had a different vision of this book when I chose to read it. I give it four stars for the message, ...more

Because I can't say it any better myself, here is a review from: Library Journal
Environmentalist, teacher, and activist Perkins established Earth Dream Alliance to preserve indigenous people, their environment, and their shamanic traditions. This book is a fascinating account of how he and others, through contacts with cultures such as that of the Otavalans, Salasacans, and Shuar, concluded "that in order for life to continue as we know it, we must all change our dream from the one of materialis

Good points about climate change and our western society that is cause of all natural disasters. Difference between fantasies and dream. Less interesting the journeys under the effect of indigenous drug.

I loved every moment about this book. It helps us to change the way we live through what we dream. This is rooted in the Shamanic teachings of the Amazon and Andes. i find that what we dream completely changes our relationship with the world. If we dream about buying our next new car or large home than more concrete, steel and resources will be used to help us fulfill that dream. However if we dream about unity, peace and the wonderfulness of nature than we will probably be more content with our ...more

Not my favorite book on shamanism, it's a little too stiffly written and sparse for that. It did bring me back to the same place of dream change that is so awesome with these books.
