From the Publisher
From the world-renowned author of such international bestsellers as MEDITATIONS FOR WOMEN WHO DO TOO MUCH (over 2 million copies in print) and MEDITATIONS FOR PEOPLE WHO (MAY) WORRY TOO MUCH, Anne Wilson Schaef has crafted a meditation book based on ancient wisdom.
Wilson Schaef shares the richness of truth poured out to her by Native Americans, Australian Aboriginals, Africans, Maori, and others who still honor the old ways. In daily meditations, she gives us the Elders' own words about fear, time, possessiveness, family, work, loneliness, change, intimacy, and many other subjects, along with her own personal reflections. The result is a wonderful book of meditations and a healing, provocative, deeply spiritual companion.
Be sure to look for Anne Wilson Schaef's new book, LIVING IN PROCESS: BASIC TRUTHS FOR LIVING THE PATH OF THE SOUL available in November of 1998. In it, Anne explores her evolutionary action philosophy that guides and informs all of her healing work.
From the Inside Flap
ve to be white to have a white mind.
What is a white mind? As Anne Wilson Schaef learned during her travels throughout the world among Native Peoples, anyone raised in modern Western society or by Western culture can have a white mind. White minds are trapped in a closed system of thinking that sees life in black and white, either/or terms; they are hierarchical and mechanistic; they see nature as a force to be tamed and people as objects to be controlled with no regard for the future.
This worldview is not shared by most Native Peoples, and in this provocative book, Anne Wilson Schaef shares the richness poured out to her by Native Americans, Aborigines, Africans, Maoris, and others. In the words of Native Peoples themselves, we come to understand Native ideas about our earth, spirituality, family, work, loneliness, and change. For in every area of our lives we have the capacity to transcend our white minds--we simply need to listen with open hearts and open minds to other voices, other p

I was wrong. It seems like Ms. Schaef carries some guilt and shame for being white and it carries into this book. I would read it on some days and just feel awful, which is not how I wanted to start my day. I know about what was done to Native People, I know it was horrific at times, but I'm not reading history, or even more current news about Standing Rock for example. I am simply trying to learn about how to apply certain spirituality and thinking outside my own into my life. She also seemed to brag about being the Chosen One to present this message to white people. I am giving it two stars instead of one because there were passages that did inform and uplift me without all the shame. I just couldn't keep going through this book wondering if I was going to hit on a good or bad day with her. ~Shay
