A reflective exploration of how dreams and mythology can help define one's journey in life.
"Life finds its own way. Let us embark, then, on a new journey of initiation. Let us go down into the cave and paint the record of our calling."

A rich tapestry of science, philosophy and art, Wearing My Feathered Hat explores how mythology and individual dreaming can aid personal development.

Taking readers on a semi-chronological discussion structured around seven key dream figures – from Bear to Snake – the book provides a map for anyone searching for added meaning in their life. What are the messages we can take from our cultural mythologies, ancestral storytelling and own dreams? What advice can philosophers and theorists contribute to this discovery? How could we use such information for a more meaningful connection to our world and ourselves?

Such are the questions Wearing My Feathered Hat answers with a combination of original ideas, texts from some of the world's great thinkers, and accessible techniques such as sandplay and meditation.

With rich storytelling and insights into living a more fulfilling life, Wearing My Feathered Hat provides a thought-provoking and uplifting message of the power of listening to one’s dreams.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"Wearing My Feathered Hat encouraged me to follow my heart to engage the change I want in my life. I looked forward to sitting by our window and continue the journey through seven dreams, and am now very happy I read Johanna’s story: it has inspired a new approach to change for me."
– Judi Hughes, Your Planning Partners

"Johanna Beyers, a geologist, Jungian-oriented psychotherapist and spiritual seeker, shares her own professional knowledge and personal experience as she weaves together the dream world, our beginnings, encounters with the Self, nature and the universe in a way that takes us deeper into our own journey. She wrestles with today’s church, today’s science, and life’s hurts and challenges in a way that encourages growth towards wholeness leading to the reality of the Sacred at the heart of existence."
– Bob Haden, The Haden Institute

Book group talks and workshops are available. View our Reader's Guide (PDF)
