The Dream Shield Journey took place in 2014.
We invite you to join us on 2 outstanding journeys that are happening simultaneously.
In the Tonal Part of our Journey, our 3rd Dimensional Reality, we will enjoy an early warm summer exploring some of the absolute highlights of the North Island of Aoteoroa, the Maori name for New Zealand. We will enjoy the warm welcome and deep wisdom of our Maori guides, friends and teachers. As we meet their ancestors in stories, songs and Maraes – tribal meeting spaces where we will be allowed to dream as part of the family.
The Nagual Part of the Journey is dedicated to a very special powerful ceremony.
* The Creation of the Dream Shield – Vision Quest
The Twisted Hair Sweet Medicine SunDance Tradition as part of the SW – Dream Power is very much focused on the interaction of 5th dimensional ‘dreaming’ and the actualization in the 3rd dimension.
* How can we seed our Dream in the As Above and harvest the result in our everyday 3rd dimensional reality?
* How can we align ourselves with our Higher Self and our highest Assemblage Stations and actualize from there our true Soul Intent?
Our life is the reflection of our Imagination and Dream Power. If we do not have a dream that propels us forwards we will lose our evolutionary momentum, our Value to the Everything and reduce ourselves to a mediocre existence.
We know that we need to actively dream our life as determiners of energy in the 5th world.
• the traditional Maori welcome ceremony, powhiri
• sleep in a carved traditional ancestral house
• the power of the haka, the warrior’s challenge
• volcanoes, boiling mud pools and thermal streams

— with an international group of adventurer explorers. You will be touched to your core by the heart wisdom, healings and teachings of the Maori Elders who will share with us throughout our Journey.
This journey takes us to the magical dreamscapes of the Maori people. They too embarked along the West Coast of America many centuries ago on their epic journey of the Seven Canoes to new lands to find a new home in Aotearoa, the Land of the Eternal Light.
Thanks to Mihirangi our Maori guide who grew up within the traditional lineage we will all gain a deeper understanding of this powerful SW lineage tradition.
Maori Elders will welcome our little tribe to stay overnight in the “Marae”, the carved traditional ancestral house of the native communities and share from the wealth of their rare and precious gems.
