Format: Paperback
For all the people of the earth, the Creator has planted a sacred Tree, under which they may gather to find healing, power, wisdom and security. Its roots spread deeply into Mother Earth, its branches reach to Father Sky. Its fruits are the good things that our Creator has given to all peoples, the path to love, compassion, generosity, patience, wisdom, justice, courage, respect, humility and other great gifts.

The life of the Tree rests with life of the people, but if they forget to take its nourishment, many would grow sick at heart, lie, quarrel, and abuse the land, poisoning everything they touch. The people would be as in sleep, to awaken again to their search for the Tree, whose knowledge rests with the elders. I find this an especially calming and beautiful book for these terrible times.

This quiet sleeper is more than just a supplementary tool for Native American rites of passage programs. This is a bondafide spiritual growth tool which is suitable for youth and adults. I have seen few books that are written in such easy to read language but truly FULL of information.

This book will cause introspection and it will give a wonderful roadmap for those that are courageous enough to take the journey. I recommend this book to peoples of all colors. The Native American Sacred Tree and Medicine Wheel applications in this book are incredibly useful.

I've been doing a weekly medicine wheel with Medicine Cards for over 10 years, but the recent addition of this little book has brought a powerful understanding of the medicine wheel that was previously lacking in my spiritual practice. It's not very long but the teachings FAR outweigh the page count. I've highlighted it so much that the pages are wrinkly.

After 57 years of marriage, my father passed away a few months ago and my mother's grief has been tremendous. I've introduced her to the Medicine Cards and The Sacred Tree teachings. WOW, talk about a powerful set of tools to help her cope with the loss and find a new outlook on life. She was previously borderline suicidal without Dad and now, I can literally see the peacefulness on her face that the Native American spiritual practice and teachings of the medicine wheel are bringing to her, slowly but surely. This in itself is worth more than anything else in the world to me.

No matter what your background, I strongly recommend you check out this book. If nothing else, it's an incredibly wise blueprint for living a full, productive, compassionate and peaceful way of life.

Great message presented in an almost poetic way. The kind of book you would not abandon in the bookshelf but would use as a companion throughout your journey into becoming your very best.

I have recommended this book to many people as my favorite 12-step spirituality guide. The concepts of leading a spiritual life are simple and clear and include actions to lead to a better spiritual life. People of any religion could find it helpful and I particularly recommend the book to agnostics or atheists who can widen their thoughts on spiritual practice without a required reference to a deity (the understanding of the use of symbol and metaphor is great).

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to understand the Native American viewpoint. The book is well written, with clear connections throughout between the various ideas that are explored. It is very basic, but a good place to begin understanding the thought of Directional Guides and the interconnection between the All that is an inherent part of most Earth based spiritualities.

Let's face it. Some books on Native American Spirituality are hard to understand, or are *gasp* boring.
This related some very basic, but fundamental information in a way that I believe most would appreciate it.
Nicely worded and illustrated as well. I think it would be beneficial for any class or those who are trying to
improve their basic understanding of unifying Native American spiritual belief to use this book as a real
source. Really great for pagans/transcendentalists to supplement their understanding too.
