Description


The transformative power of Medicine Path: In a Good Way is a result of the visual and verbal synergy between Kristen Holmberg Paradiso's heartfelt paintings and George Bertelsteins' soulful prose and written teachings. Kristen's gorgeously rendered paintings deliver an intimate, artistic communication with Nature and Spirit. Her images are inspired by the deep wisdom resonant in George's words. A midwife for the teachings, George's prose has been honed by decades of dedication to a rich nuanced spiritual path and a fastidious commitment as a generous spiritual elder and teacher. Images and words dance together in Medicine Path to create a radiant vision of what is possible when human beings collaborate with our Creator and the many beings, seen and unseen, who offer us their assistance and guidance. This book shows us that if we pay attention, we may discover that we are in a dynamic, fully animate world infused with Spirit. We may realize that we are held and supported by Mystery, and that our lives can become a prayer that we offer with humility and gratitude to All That Is. May the images and words in this book inspire you on your own Medicine Path of sacred unfolding and homecoming.
