DREAMTIME
Also known as ALCHERA

The Primordial Timeless Dream

This is not a God, but the hazy timeless dream that existed before the world began and which influences so much of aboriginal Australian mythology.

Overseen by the God ALTJIRA, this was when the ancient spirits of all tribes walked the Earth in a state of profound dreaminess.

Now they all sleep underground, but shamans and other interested parties can still communicate with the DREAMTIME past if they inhale the right substances.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Dreamtime graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Dreamtime movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Dreamtime statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Dreamtime. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
