The Dream Journal
Shamanic Dreaming with Paul Overman

We talk about the Great Walk which includes the four components of dreams, meditation, inspired creativity and eco-spirituality with spiritual dream guide and shamanic dreamer Dr. Paul Overman. Paul shares some of his visionary experiences and suggests that by inviting ancestors or loved ones to walk with us that we can deepen our experience of the subtle world. Paul then speaks about dreaming under the guidance of the soul and makes distinctions between the Midheavens, the Heavens and the Source. In the third segment, Paul talks about how we can work with our own dreams using meditative visualization and then offers tips on how to recognize shamanic elements in our own dreams and how to use our dreams to explore our own inner shamanic landscape.

BIO: Paul Overman, Ph.D., is an author and an East-West mind-body-consciousness explorer and researcher. A former practicing psychologist of forty-years, Paul currently is a member of Spiritual Directors International, conducting webinars, seminars and online courses – as well as giving personal assistance and training.
