DREAMWALKER: Shaman/Therapist/Dreamhealer. A dreamwalker is one who works with and within dreams to understand, to create, to heal, to meet with elderhearts, to journey through this realm (out of body), to work with other worlds and realms, to teach, to unite with the ultimate. There are many ways to enter the dreamtime - drums, sweats, hypnosis, dreamwork, lucid dreaming, meditation. Some people 'just do it' without any methodology. The dreamworld is any of many alternate realities. In past times, shamans were generally "called" by a compelling force during a dream state or on a vision quest (dreamwalking). In some cultures the position was hereditary or bestowed by an existing shaman on an individual selected to be an apprentice, directly by the gods or by bloodline and requesting initiation. The ability tends to follow bloodlines.
