Description



"Esoteric teachings suggest that, rather than being 'illusory' compared to the 'real' world of waking life, the dream world is indeed real. Some traditions, like those of the Australian aborigines, even suggest that the forms of the 'Dreamtime' underpin earthly reality."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
