realm of Spirit

realm of Spirit,

n according to Native American culture, a term that refers to the unconscious world that belongs to an individual or a group of people. Pertinent information is passed from this world to the patient and the healer. Persons can gain access to this otherworldly region through dreams and during the Sweat Lodge and other ceremonies, Cree Kos pahcikéwin or ‘shaking tent’ or Lakota Yuwipi, during which spiritual beings are believed to communicate with the healer. See also Sweat Lodge Ceremony and Lakota Yuwipi.
