Virtual Book Tour & Review - The Sorcerer's Dream by Dreamshield

About The Sorcerer's Dream:

The story of a young woman bumping into the enigmatic sorcerer Running Deer and her initiation into the sorcerer's world and mastering conscious dreaming. It takes the reader throughout the magic realms of the unknown and gives a new approach to the traditional training of women sorcerers.

From Dreamshield's Website - www.dreamshield.nl 

The Sorcerer’s Dream is a personal account from the author’s experiences in the Native American sorcerer’s tradition in the Art of Dreaming.

Alysa Braceau, Dreamshield explains the teachings from the Indian shaman sorcerer Running Deer in such a manner that can also be used for the reader as a guidebook to practice lucid dreaming him/herself.

My Thoughts about The Sorcerer's Dream:

This book isn't exactly what I thought it was going to be,  but it was a great tale.  I think I was expecting more of a direct approach to conscious dreaming.  What it is though, is a memoir if you will,  of Alysa's own experience as she learns the Native American techniques to conscious dreaming.  It follows Alysa's teachings with the help of her guide and mentor, Running Deer.

Her experiences as she learns Shamanism is incredible.  From her first dream to reaching the second reality,  it was amazing to realize the actual meanings behind her dreams.  The course of recognizing and facing your fears,  some of which you don't even realize you have.  Alysa did a great job explaining her journey and it's a great guide to follow to recognizing the meaning behind your own dreams.

The journey doesn't stop at lucid dreaming,  but also includes spiritual healing as well.  If you are interested in conscious dreaming and the road traveled to reach totality,  then you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

I give The Sorcerer's Dream **** (4) Stars.  Well done Alysa.
