Overview
This book contains interviews with timeless wisdom from members of various indigenous groups around the world.
Description
Awe-inspiring tales from the ages for all ages told as if by the fireside with a grandmother or grandfather sharing secret pearls from heart to heart. See from their eyes, a life led by mysteries, by vision, by direct insight and by stories from their elders now passed on to you. A call from the sky, a song from the bird as a messenger from Beyond inviting us all to remember - to gather together once again in understanding of how it all weaves together in one great Tapestry. Key issues about sustainability and relating to the environment are discussed from a perspective that is fresh, although ancient. The diverse traditions of cultures near and far are shared with a focus on spirituality and how it shapes the society and its choices around education, rites of passage for all ages, caring for the earth and governing practices. Fascinating dimensions are peeled open from layers of life that usually remain secret or hidden from the uninitiated, and shown how they serve the health of the community. Elders, shaman, and medicine people from Africa, Bulgaria, Latvia, Africa, Papua New Guinea and several American tribes share stories, rituals, and personal journeys of how their way of life unfolded into the roles they now carry. It offers a different lens through which to view and experience life, along with an invitation to participate with them in celebrations, pilgrimages, rites of passage, and deep sharing.
About the author
Suresha comes from a multi-racial background that taught an open heart and open mind toward all people. Four of her grandparents were of Native American descent, and for her more than anyone else in the family, a calling was set forth to return to some of the teachings therein without having the benefit of spending time with those parts of her family. After her college education, a call of the spirit took her first to India for several years, then out West to California. There she met elders, shaman, and medicine people who spoke to that part of her ancestry and inspired the way to share her deep concerns for the direction the planet was heading in. Over a fifteen year period, she interviewed numerous indigenous relatives, participated in numerous ceremonies and gatherings, and became a member of the Black Native American Association based in the Bay Area. She has dedicated her life to wholistic health studies and practices over the last 40 years for herself, for others, and for the planet. She has taught hands-on therapeutic techniques for over twenty years, authored a three-volume handbook for students, and owns a health spa where she also sees clients. She felt moved to offer the gift of the perspective of her ancestors that honors the interdependence of life and lives to sustain the harmony of those interconnections. Half of the proceeds of this book will return to the non-profit organizations of the elders in this book.
