The Deer and the Naturalist: Dreamwork and the Souls Journey
by Mary Edwards
In 1982 nightmares saved Mary Edwards, a wife and mother who had been sliding into alcoholism to avoid the grief work that she seriously needed to do.
The Deer and the Naturalist is Mary's remarkable story of her life's spiritual journey as she began to understand how dreams are a valuable guide to our life's path. Working with dreams became a form of prayer and meditation that improved her conscious contact with God and for the knowledge of God's will for her and the power to carry that out.
Mary has been forever changed by her recovery and her understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of that deep wisdom within that comes from dreams and their connection to one's Higher Power.
The reader of this book will be given many tools for working with their dreams during times of transition. It will help you fully understand the language of that inner voice that comes through dreams, from one's true self and that voice of God from within.
No matter what brokenness we all experience, once we surrender to that wise voice within, we find healing for ourselves, and the gift to help others.
