Toronto, Ontario, CANADA – When Canadian actress Dayle McLeod drank Ayahuasca in California on the night of the winter solstice of 2014, she had no idea she was about to embark on a forty-day dream that would fully awaken her and change her life forever.

Synopsis of ‘The Big Dream: My Terrifyingly Beautiful Shamanic Initiation into the Arts’:
Have you ever wondered what it's like to travel to alternate dimensions? ??What would you do if you found yourself stuck in an alternate reality where things stranger and more terrifying than you've ever dreamed could happen? ??That’s exactly what happened to Dayle McLeod in her new memoir 'The Big Dream'. ??After drinking Ayahuasca in Ojai CA on the winter solstice of 2014, Dayle McLeod couldn't exit the dream realm that the hallucinogens brought her to. For forty days she lived inside epic visions and hallucinations where she was sent on an Earth-saving mission that nearly killed her.??She woke up in the psych ward of an L.A hospital with doctors telling her she had gone nuts; but an old Native American Jungian Psychologist saw things differently; and that is where the real adventure begins.??Let this fascinating true story blow your mind and awaken your soul.
“This is a frank, raw memoir unlike anything written before,” explains the author. “Ayahuasca completely changed my life yet it remains a medicine hardly explored by the western mainstream media, or alternative wellness professionals. I wanted to tell of my firsthand experience with it, in the hope others will educate themselves on the dichotomy of potential psychedelic medicine holds’.
Continuing, “My entire career in the arts is underpinned by my passion for exploring transitions between the physical world and the metaphysical sphere; I got a glimpse of what lies beyond, and I am most interested in the mediums that might translate between these two spheres: Art.”
For Dayle, Art (music, theatre, dance, poetry) is the exercising of theological questions, and her ability to capture complex cosmic truth in simple, accessible ways is what moved this experimental, independent artist into the mainstream.
“It’s a complex subject, but my gift is my ability to explain it in an accessible way, that anyone can understand and draw empowerment from.’ - Dayle McLeod
