Book Description

16 Nov 1998

Bestselling Native American author and internationally renowned teacher and healer Jamie Sams – creator the Sacred Path Cards and the Medicine Cards offers her first book of practical advice for living on a spiritual path.

The result of nearly twenty-five years of intensive study with two Native American dreaming societies, Dancing the Dream draws our attention to the four directions of the Medicine Wheel (East, South, West, and North) and the three unseen directions – Above, Below, and Within – and explains how each of these seven directions represents a specific path on the spiritual journey. In the East, we encounter the first stirrings of the spirit; in the South, the healing of relationships; in the West, we work to build self-esteem; in the North, we learn wisdom and the opening of the heart; Above represents the world of spirit; Below, the earth; Within, full awareness of the present moment.

Most people will walk these paths in sequence. Some will never make it through all seven. Many will continue to move forward but continue to double back on earlier paths until they get things rights. But for those willing to walk all seven paths, there is the great reward of being able to see the world with the soaring vision of an eagle, fully aware and present to meet life’s challenges with vision, wisdom and purpose.

From the Back Cover

Walk the Seven Paths to Spiritual Enlightenment

From Jamie Sams, internationally renowned teacher and bestselling author, 'Dancing the Dream' is an exhilarating mix of instruction, guidance, and carefully imparted wisdom drawn from decades of study and training with two Native American dreaming societies. Here, Sams defines the seven paths of human spiritual development – and their direct correlation to the seven sacred directions: East, South, West, North, Above, Below, Within – and what it takes to move through them.

A powerful call to integrate the seen and unseen forces in our lives – our physical reality and the web of energy made up of all our feelings, thoughts, opinions, judgments, intentions, and desires – 'Dancing the Dream' offers instruction and guidance for creating an enormous shift in our personal relationships with the earth, our loved ones, friends and communities, and, most important, our own spiritual selves. With a chapter devoted to each of the seven paths, as well as a glossary of terms and phrases for quick reference, this is a guide to be consulted again and again as your spiritual journey unfolds.

"A magnificent blueprint for transformation."
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of 'Be Careful What You Pray for…You Just Might Get It' and 'Healing Words'

"Sam draws upon sources of indigenous wisdom, the metaphoric world, and a depth of her own experience to become a guide for all who wish to grow wise themselves. 'Dancing the Dream' illuminates paths of initiation through the difficulties and opportunities that life provides."

"Sams' brilliance shines a light for us to follow in these changing times. Her greatest work!"
Sandra Ingerman, author of 'Soul Retrieval, Mending the Fragmented Self' and 'A Fall to Grace'

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, A GUIDE/BIBLE FOR LIFE 10 Oct 2001
Format:Paperback
Jamie Sams ability to observe and walk her talk around the medicine wheel is truly inspiring, it encourages the spirit inside of you to grow and soar. This book is witty and endearing and most of all filled with humility and intelligent observations, based on a human spirits journey through the physical seen/unseen worlds. Its a brilliant book, and has helped me to walk in alignment with Mother Earth. Jamie Sams is now my constant companion in the form of this book, she inspires me everyday, this woman's energy is a strength for all who touch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars top book .... 4 July 2007
Format:Paperback
As the previous two reviewers have already said, i agree that this is truly a wonderful book... clearly well written, with immense guidance, understanding and love ... i offer my honest thanx to jamie sams, as she has offered us the clear accessibility to our own minds and hearts with this book, encouraging us to acknowledge and understand everything we experience, she has reminded us that wisdom, is knowledge applied with heart, that laughter is truly our greatness medicine and the infinite, neutral viewpoint well ... lol ... it's all over! as they say when there's nothing more to add ...

if your unsure about this book then please accept your uncertainty and give yourself another 6 months, or perhaps even a couple of years ... if your sure you wanna read it, then hey, dive in xx

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found I was experiencing this book in physical life and also in dream life; it stayed with me and continues to stay with me throughout every moment of my life.

Sams has such a unique manner of conveying the wisdom - which has been passed down to her from teachers, spirit, and through her own life-path experiences - that is accessible for anybody.

This book truly does serve as a bible for anybody who wishes to reach their full spiritual potential in life; the kind of book that you can finish reading and always go back to re-read a few pages. These pages one will find contain the perfect message or teaching of wisdom necessary for their day ahead.

Totally magical....

5.0 out of 5 stars dancing the Dream 12 May 2010
Format:Paperback
I found this book inspirational and helped to explain many phenomena in my life and the lives of others that i have met. Truely a book to feed the soul. Not a "feel good" book, more of a be aware of yourself, know yourself and then act from the centre of yourself.
