I liked this book so much that I gave it real estate on my blog (http://lyndaskeen.wordpress.com/). Here is the post:
A great book about the journeying experience
July 22, 2012 by Lynda Skeen
I want to recommend Kelley Harrell’s Gift of the Dreamtime, a brave, compassionate, and wonderfully written book about Kelley’s experience of wrestling with childhood sexual abuse. It takes place over the course of several years, and totally in dreamtime (also known as nonordinary reality or shamanic journeys). She lets the reader in on her gritty process of working with her helping spirits to unravel her childhood wounding and to move forward in a positive way in her life. She doesn’t sugarcoat the process, which is one of the gifts of her gutsiness in letting the reader in on her process. She lets us see her learning process, lets us see her question her helping spirits, lets us see her pain and her healing. It’s really beautiful, and is a great example of ways to work with your helping spirits.
Her journeys are very visual – not just visual, but engaging all the senses – which isn’t everyone’s experience of Dreamtime. If you feel a bit of jealousy as you read Gift of the Dreamtime, please don’t let it deter you from continuing to read. Everyone journeys in their own way; some people don’t “see” anything at all.
Kelley, I know I’ve already said this to you, but thank you so much for your gift of Gift of the Dreamtime! I heartily recommend it.

In the easy-to-read, entertaining, and insightful Real Wyrd, Kelley once again lets us in on what it’s like to walk for a few steps in her shaman shoes. This book will be very helpful for anyone who needs validation of their own supernatural experiences, or ideas of ways to process them. Thank you Kelley - and keep on writing!
