I met Sylvia in a class I was teaching. At Yellowhead Tribal College over 24 years ago. We struck up a friendship which became one of the dearest in my life. We worked together for several years in bringing the science and spirit of night dreams to students and friends. Not only was she a friend and colleague, more important for me was her role as a mentor to me in understanding the depth of spiritual revelation. I’ve written about her teaching in various venues and will continue to hold her in my heart as I move into the retirement years of my life.
