by Johanna M. Beyers

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
A reflective exploration of how dreams and mythology can help define one’s journey in life.
A map for anyone searching for depth in their life, Wearing my Feathered Hat is a rich tapestry of science, philosophy and art. Author Johanna Beyers explores how collective mythology and individual dreaming can aid personal development. Structured around seven key dream figures experienced by the author – from Bear to Snake – the book takes readers on a semi-chronological meditation of messages we can find in our cultural mythologies, ancestral storytelling, and own dreams. The author’s personal journey provides a down-to-earth and compassionate framework for discussion. Thinking from some of the world’s great philosophers and psychotherapists textures the storytelling, while discussions of techniques such as sandplay and meditation enable attainable discoveries by readers. Just as psychotherapy builds relationships between the ego and outer world, so Wearing my Feathered Hat provides connections between anthropology, geology, and poetry to further explore key themes of our existence. With rich storytelling and original insights into living a more fulfilling life, Wearing My Feathered Hat provides a thought-provoking and uplifting message of the power of listening to one’s dreams.
