The shaman is a person of the percept, of perceptual traditions. In the west, we are people of the precept. We get precepts, laws, rules. We get the ten commandments, elect legislators and law makers that make more rules. When the shamans want to change the world, they work at the level of the essential to bring about a shift in perception. By shifting perception, we dream the new world into being and the world changes. That is our task, to dream with our eyes open.
