Queen of Dreamsby Heather Valencia
From earliest childhood Heather Valencia had vivid, precognitive dreams. In one of them, she would travel to a pre-Columbian world to join a mysterious, powerful spiritual leader. When she grew older, Heather married and raised a son, but her dreams continued and she found herself increasingly drawn to the desert of southern Arizona. Finally she decided to travel there, particularly to witness the colorful and famous Easter deer dance ceremony, and when she did, she met the mysterious figure of her dreams. This is the true story of Heather Valencia's journey to Yaqui, and her experiences with Anselmo Valencia, the spiritual leader of the Yaqui people and Heather's future husband. Heather describes her passionate love affair with Anselmo, her discovery of the rich Yaqui spiritual tradition under Amselmo's guidance, her otherworldly spiritual explorations, and her mystical activities with the powerful circle of Dreaming Women.

One of the things that struck me after the first dozen pages is that this is a real story about real Yaqui people. Heather provides us with a unique snapshot of American Indian life, the magic, the drama, and the power to see the world as the Yaqui do. We spend one-third of our lives sleeping. If you want to know more about the world that we spend so much time in and it's connection to our waking world, read this book.
