The Big Dream; My Terrifyingly Beautiful Shamanic Initiation into the Arts by Dayle McLeod
Have you ever wondered what it's like to travel to alternate dimensions? What would you do if you found yourself stuck in an alternate reality where things stranger and more terrifying than you've ever dreamed could happen? That’s exactly what happened to Dayle McLeod in her new memoir 'The Big Dream'. After drinking Ayahuasca in Ojai CA on the winter solstice of 2014, Dayle McLeod couldn't exit the dream realm that the hallucinogens brought her to. For forty days she lived inside epic visions and hallucinations where she was sent on an Earth-saving mission that nearly killed her. She woke up in the psych ward of an L.A hospital with doctors telling her she had gone nuts; but an old Native American Jungian Psychologist saw things differently; and that is where the real adventure begins. Open this book and allow this fascinating and profound true-story blow your mind and awaken your soul.
