The first time I opened my altar for use after the weekend I was immediately transported to the space where we had created them. In an instant I knew that this was a treasure I would unwrap every night, for every night I am a voyager. The stone I use for dreaming comes to life in the same way that the stones in the lodge come to life when all of the elements are present. I open the altar as I would crawl into the womb of the mother. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin.
