The author goes to great detail to clarify some common stereotypes of the Native world, to teach respect and consideration for Native American traditions, Peoples, and the natural world. He furthers understanding of our role as human beings, and how to live in a way that honors and respects everything around us. The tranformative power of the natural world and its relationship to healing. Harmony. Surrrounding subtle energies. The book is something of a blueprint to live in a kinder, more compassionate way, closer to our Mother Earth and with reverence for the past(Ancestors), the present, and the future(our grandchildren who will inherit this world). The plants and animals can survive quite well without us pitiful 2 leggeds, but, we cannot survive without them.
It is a great story of Kenneth Cohen's personal journey. There is something here for everyone. I am certain he put down tobacco and prayed before and during this writing- there is a flow of the work of Spirit here.Thank you for a sensitve sharing of these teachings, and being a bridge between people.
Ahau! Migwech, (thank you)
Sincerely, The STONEGATHERER IN LELAND
It is the story of a modern man who discovers himself and finds his place among tribal people as a healer. Ken Cohen is able to share his path and enlighten the reader while weaving a facinating story. Spirituality is inseperable from healing and indiginous healers understand this. Modern medical people should read this book and change how medicine is practiced today. There is a basic understanding of humanity and wholistic healing that the Native American healers share.
I had friends who wanted to borrow it, but I was not willing to let it go. Thank goodness for amazon.com - I can buy copies for my friends and not have to give up my copy. I highly recommend this book.
Wish I could met and talk with a man that has had so many wonderful life experiences.
There is so much precious knowledge out there and it is being lost or in danger of being lost or destroyed. So many different cultural practices are dieing out. And who benefits? Definably not the human race, as some of us are slowly discovering. Intention, faith, belief, action, This earth has so much to offer all.
Its ridiculous how we abuse this earth and its people. In doing so we all will loose so much.
Ancient knowledge and healing must be continued and taught to who ever wont's to practice it and pass it.
Thank you K C for an interesting read as well as some practices I can incorporate in my life.
