Product description

Review

"The World Is As You Dream It is one of those rare books that tells a riveting story at the same time as it provides deep insights into what makes us who we are and the world what it is. I was so riveted to this book that I couldn't put it down for a second until I finished reading it." (Cynthia S. Larson, Realityshifters.com)

"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 materialism and domination.. . to a more spiritual, cooperative, and Earth-honoring one." He recounts shamanic journeys to encourage the reader's self-empowerment, so that knowledge long buried by Western culture may be rediscovered. Recommended for large public and academic libraries, especially those with New Age and anthropological collections." (Library Journal (Sunday , May 01, 1994))

“The dream not only drives the action, it also guides the action. Through John Perkins’s narrative we learn this truth as it is taught with special vividness by the indigenous people of South America.” (Thomas Berry, author of The Dream of the Earth and coauthor of The Universe Story)

"A thrilling view of ancient native cultures that make their homes within the rain forest . . . vividly written." (Booklist)

"A magnificent book! It has a place of honor in my personal library. Perkins' The World Is As You Dream It is a masterly and understanding exploration of shamanic inner thinking. It is thought-provokingly written, a most valuable contribution." (Richard Evans Schultes, Ph.D., Harvard Jeffrey Professor of Biology, Director of Harvard Botanical M)

Synopsis
