Paul's Symbol of Integral Dreaming, Shamana Dreamwork and Integral Dream Yoga
Paul Overman, PhD's Mandala above is the Symbol of
Shamana Dream Work and Traveling and Dreaming in the Twelve Lucid Dream States Above and Below, Listening to Dreams from all the Directions, and Reporting and Recording these Streams of Consciousness.
We are not always the fully conscious decider. Our inner being, our soul, is constantly adjusting our personal wishes and desires, correcting our actions and decisions, and teaching us the nature of reality around us as well as our personal world. The inner witness, the dream witness, works to transform and align our personal desires with the deepest desires of our soul. By “divining” the inner witness or psychic being of the soul we come to know the powers playing through us in our daily lives and in our dreaming lives.
It has been said that unless we know ourselves at all levels – including that of the subtle or dream body – we cannot really know ourselves or others. If there is a significant lacking of such knowingness, if we are lonely, our loneliness will continue until we become one with all of life including and especially with those benevolent “lives” in our dreaming and outer world. If not such knowingness, suffering, pain and sorrow will continue until we become one in sympathetic rapport with all of life in the waking and dream worlds.
By reporting and recording the streams of consciousness, perceived by inner witness, we integrate mind, body and spirit.
Dreaming from the four, eight and twelve directions.
