Amazon.com Review

Drawing on her Native American heritage, author Denise Linn writes of the profound importance of paying attention to the family legacies we inherited and the ones we will pass on. According to the Great Law of the American Indian Iroquois Confederacy, "In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." This is Linn's point exactly--we must take responsibility for how our thoughts, actions, and beliefs affect our present life, but also the future of the world. In order to create a healthy and positive legacy for subsequent generations, Linn outlines a four-part plan: 1) "Re-establish our connection to the past by exploring our roots and realizing that we are a product of a long and noble lineage of human beings that came before us." 2) "Sort through our heritage by embracing that which strengthens us, and by breaking negative ancestral patterns." 3) "Shift our limiting beliefs about the future at a fundamental level." 4) "Take concrete actions to empower the future." Specific suggestions and exercises for healing damaged legacies and creating ones that strengthen are presented throughout this well-organized and easy-to-absorb book. --Gail Hudson


"[A] powerful book . . . This work is satisfying at the deepest level of our being. . . . Each of us has the power to heal and transform our legacies and leave the world a better place."
   Author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"Each person, no matter what his or her life circumstances, can help make the world a better place for future generations. In Sacred Legacies, Denise Linn presents bold and visionary methods that create a powerful blueprint for a positive future."

"This helpful and hopeful book explores four acts of personal power that can positively affect the future. . . . By honoring your ancestors and empowering your descendants you can make the most of the transformative power of the generations."
--Values & Visions

More About the Author

Denise Linn has been called "America's best-kept secret." For the last three and a half decades she has traveled to the far corners of the world speaking to standing-room only audiences of thousands. Her spiritual journey began as a teenager when she had a near-death experience after being shot by an unknown gunman. The revelations she received on the "other side" and the subsequent amazing healing of her wounds led Denise to eventually become an internationally respected healer, writer, and teacher.

A world-acclaimed expert in feng shui and space clearing, Denise has distilled the information and wisdom into her teachings that she gained from indigenous cultures around the planet-- the aborigines of Australia, the Zulu in Africa, the Maori of New Zealand (where she was given the title of tohunga), as well as from her own Native American roots.
Denise has taught seminars in 20 countries and has written 17 books, including the best-selling, "Sacred Space," and "Soul Coaching" as well as her personal memoir, "If I Can Forgive, So Can You!" Her books have been translated into 26 languages, and she has been a featured guest on Oprah, Lifetime, Discovery Channel, BBC TV, NBC and CBS. She is also the founder of the International Institute of Soul Coaching.

Denise and her husband, David, live at Summerhill Ranch in the wine country of the Central Coast of California with their two dogs, Pepper and Sadie, and with their five chickens. Their home is located on 40 acres of oak-covered hills surrounded by vineyards with the Santa Lucia Mountains in the distance. To the far west is the Big Sur coastline where cliffs drop suddenly into the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean. And to the far south are vast sand dunes delicately carved by sea breezes. To the east is the Corizo Plain which is awash with brilliant wildflowers in the spring. At night the stars sparkle in the crisp night air of Summerhill, while owls hoots and coyotes howl in their nightly chorus.
On their land, they have a small orchard with 15 different kinds of fruit, 100 grapevines for home-made wine and grape juice, olive trees for olives, and a large organic garden. Whenever possible Denise and David use the bounty of their land to help supply food for the retreats held there. The land also offers sanctuary for many kinds of birds and animals. Summerhill Ranch is host to bobcats, coyotes, badgers, foxes-gray and red, porcupines, skunks, voles, moles, raccoons, pack rats and an occasion mountain lion, as well as over 40 different kinds of birds.

Denise and David's daughter Meadow enjoys working with her parents at the Ranch. In addition to handling Soul Coaching registrations, she is also the resident Summerhill Ranch chef and will delight your senses with colorful and flavorful dishes from around the world. Meadow writes a blog about love, life, and food. The blog is rich with her tantalizing recipes. Meadow is the co-author of Denise's latest book, The Mystic Cookbook.
