Editorial Reviews

Review

"The virtues of patience, compassion, and healing are foremost among the qualities that these enlightened meditations teach."

Book Description

Joyce Sequichie Hifler offers this beloved collection of daily meditation books drawn from her own rich Cherokee heritage and that of other tribes. She presents readings for each day of the year from Una la ta nee' -- the cold month, January -- to U Ski' Ya, the snow month of December. Each provides insights in both English and Cherokee, and gems of wisdom recorded in the words of native speakers. This little treasure is for readers of all faiths, and for those seeking faith.

Inspirational books always failed to inspire me until "A Cherokee Feast of Days." Joyce Sequitchie Hifler delves into my soul and finds the very best, strongest parts of ME. By including the wisdom of native elders, she gives us a perspective of "time," of each day, as a healer and as an opportunity to, simply put, "do good." Hifler is like the sunflower: her roots run deep in the red clay earth and her face smiles up to God reflecting the blessings which he has bestowed upon her and upon all of us. I have given this book to many of my friends. Prepare to have your outlook on life uplifted forever! Hifler makes me even more proud to be blessed with my grandmother's Tsalagi blood.

I have had this book and gave it to a friend and now I have to replace it. I depended on the daily mediations to give me a positive or clear thought to start my day. It parallels the daily mediations of christianity so closely it makes you realize there truely is only one "Great Spirit". This book has enhanced my life. Until I found this book I only had my christian beliefs of mediations. Now I have something that I can relate to through heritage. I have shared the passages in this book with many friends and it has touched their hearts as deeply as mine. Thank you Joyce Sequichie Hifler.

A friend gave me this book as a gift in 1993. I have read a meditation almost every day since. I find it to be uplifting and thought provoking and at the same time centering on things that really matter. The meditations remind me that family and earth matter so much more than materialistics. My daughter also reads daily and has been searching for one as a gift.

A Cherokee Feast of Days was introduced to me by an incredible woman who helped care for my mother after she had a cerebral hemorrhage that left Mom a bed-ridden invalid in a skilled nursing facility. Cee Cee has been reading A Feast of Days of decades. Her copy is worn from the years of daily reading and circumspection. As we grew to be more comfortable with each other we found we had similar beliefs. In addition to the comfort I find in the daily reading and meditation I find comfort knowing there is someone I love that is reading the exact same passage every day. The peace I find with each daily meditation is priceless.

for closing meditation I use this and Volumes II and III. The readings are the perfect length. My students love it and I am constantly asked where my quotes come from. They tell me the readings really resonate with them. I have used these books for nearly 5 years and am so happy to have them in digital format. I hope the subsequent volumes will be added soon.

My only complaint is the formatting on the Kindle (I have the HD 7") In the hardback form it's one reading per page, on the Kindle it loops over to the next so that readings aren't contained on a single page depending on font size.

To me there is a big difference between spirituality & relgion. One does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with the other.

I have a 'religious' daily meditation that does not 'speak' to me. A good friend of mine, Cherokee, let me look at her book of daily meditations...it 'spoke' to me.

I had to have my own copy so I could mark it up! I also love how it can be used year after year, except leap year, because it goes by days of the year vs days of the week.

I have had this book for at least 10 - 15 years and use it almost daily. I have gifted numerous friends with their own copies and have been told how much they love and appreciate them. The author's descriptions of animals, seasons and culture are so poetic, simple and beautiful. I highly recommend this book for anyone on their spiritual journey. You won't be sorry.

This is an amazing book filled with Native American wisdom. You can tell this is the wisdom of a blessed people (in spite of what they may have been subjected to by other, thoughtless human beings) in communion with the Great Spirit. I LOVE THIS BOOK. If you are looking for wonderful, down to earth, daily inspiration, you cannot go wrong with this sagacious volume.
