Shower of Stars: The Initiatic Dream in Sufism and Taoism
A tradition of intentional and initiatic dreaming, stretching from present-day dream-interpretation booklets back to ancient Sumerian and Egyptian practices, connects the Sufism of Ibn Arabi, medieval Kabalah, hemp-inspired Taoist scriptures, Afro-Brazilian spirit cults, and early Christian angel alphabets. Shower of Stars pulls from this history specific methods of inducing prophetic or true dreams, with the purpose of achieving non-ordinary consciousness through autonomous openings to the world of the imagination.
