" The shaman’s territory is not a dream, it is an awakening. An opening of the aperture of the heart to see all of reality more clearly. It is a place where the miraculous is ordinary and where the ready traveler can come to know more fully the nature of God, the nature of reality, and the purpose of humanity. "
