The experiences recounted in this book appear to be fictional.

Aboriginal people haven't lived in "villages" with thatched roofs since before the Europeans came. They don't go about in loincloths and hunt with spears. Even remote communities have guns and pickup trucks to hunt wild pigs. The community that the author describes sounds like something the European might have encountered a couple of hundred years ago. Aboriginal people now live in cities and towns, in town camps and, where remote, in reserved communities that have offices, schools, community centres and the like. And Brisbane is a sub-tropical city, so the author would not have encountered "open, bare countryside of nothing but rock and sand" only 15 minutes after leaving the outskirts; he would have needed to travel hundreds of kilometres to reach this kind of terrain.

The author also thinks "dreaming" or "dreamtime" is about a form of meditation, but "the Dreaming is a term used by Aborigines to describe the relations and balance between the spiritual, natural and moral elements of the world. It is an English word but its meaning goes beyond any suggestion of a spiritual or dream-related state. Rather, the Dreaming relates to a period from the origin of the universe to a time before living memory or experience - a time of creator ancestors and supernatural beings".[...]

I was disappointed, as I had hoped to learn something about Aboriginal spirituality, but I didn't. I'm prepared to accept a fictive setting for presentation of some radical ideas about connectedness and healing, though I have some misgivings about this technique, so I gave the book only two stars for the interesting and helpful way in which Dr Holz's ideas were presented. I'd need to be convinced that this is healing based on Aboriginal spirituality, so, given the author's claims, two stars is all it gets from me.

I didn't want this book to end! In a nutshell, it's kryptonite to pain, whether mental, physical, emotional or spiritual. What Gary learned in the Outback should be taught in schools and certainly could be used by any adult to heal from the inside out. I've often thought that we spend our "adulthoods" coming to terms with our childhoods and this book explains why that's true. Profound, Practical, Powerful.

This book came at a time where I was about to embark on a journey of self healing. It was perfect because I knew that no matter what I was going through Gary had been knocking at deaths door. He took an unforgettable journey across the world by himself with a lot of fears of the unknown that could of stopped him. He came out the other side with a greater upstanding of himself and compassion toward others on their own journey. I have bought 4 books and given them all away and everyone who I have given a copy, saw it was perfect for them. No matter what your struggle is, health, wealth or not enough love, this book is great! Thank you Robbie for helping Gary get his story out!

Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It is an easy read because you forget you are actually "reading" and not sitting there with Gary Holz experiencing Ray and Rose and the tribe. Gary's inter-most thoughts and feelings are so honest and real. I can relate to his experience in this very new situation. What a gift you have given us, The Universe, The Aboriginal Tribe, Dr. Holz and last but not least Robbie Holz for her courage and tenacity to "get er done" so that this healing is available to anyone that desires to change their thinking and change their life.

This book is just packed with eye-opening revelations about the seeds of true healing. A single reading propelled me to make some big strides in my own spirit and mind healing journey. After all my world travels and anthropological study, I thought I could not be surprised by the spiritual capabilities of various cultures and traditions, but I found my mouth popping open in surprise and delight at Dr. Holz's story and what this Aboriginal tribe revealed to him. I can't wait for the Holz's next book.

Is it really worth the prize Amazon has it at? $1,005.00? I like to read these kind of books... Even the used price is alittle steap. Guess I'm not going to be reading it.... Unless I get the used. Because the book looks interesting.

I loved this book from start to finish. I couldn't put it down. Gary's story is nothing short of miraculous and incredible and I am glad he decided to share it with the world. I learned so much about healing that I can use in my own life. This small book packs a big punch!
