I just published my first book review on Dream Studies, hopefully the first of many more to come. This expands one of my primary goals on this site, to provide readers with access to excellent consciousness studies and dream studies material that can be otherwise hard to find on the web.
After all, when you do a google search on dreams you are likely to find a number of cheap ad-sense optimized webpages with bad dream interpretations that have nothing to do with contemporary research. I find this intolerable and I”m here to help separate the wheat from the chaff.
My first book review is Archaeologies of Consciousness by Gyrus. This is a slim, independently published collection of essays at the intersections of prehistory, altered states of consciousness, and participatory research.
If you are interested in shamanism’s potential role in the creation of the ancient megalithic sites and prehistoric rock art of the British Isles, you may find Gyrus’s approach refreshing and exciting. Dreams are but one of his inspirations for this original research.
