This redemption story of Native American healer Bobby Lake-Thom invites the reader to enter a world of authentic indigenous traditions and ceremonies. Bobby, also known as Medicine Grizzly Bear, didn't recognize his shamanic calling at first. He didn't know that his vivid dreams, psychic abilities, and visitations by wild animals and ghostly figures were calls from the Great Spirit.
This is the story of a young man and a generation of angry youths who rebelled against their parents and the unfulfilled promise of the sixties. As with many self-destructive kids, Noah Levine's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the search didn't end there. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, Noah looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger at so much injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and compassion.
Author: Hanh, Thich Nhat
In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to mindfulness?the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.
A fresh new approach to tapping in to our own creativity, using the images and artifacts of our dreams.
Getting inspired is one of the toughest parts of being an artist, whether we're a beginner or a seasoned professional. But as Tom Crockett shows us in this new book, finding ideas for our artwork is easier than we think. By simply exploring the images of our sleeping and waking dream states, we can discover a wealth of ideas and inspiration that are more authentic and powerful because they reveal our underlying spiritual self.
Having recognized the importance and fulfillment that comes from allowing our spiritual side to infuse our art, Tom Crockett has created a program to teach us, no matter what level of artistic experience, how to bring art and spirit into one. The four different types of creative expression Crockett has identified -- Finding, Arranging, Altering, and Making -- open up artistic options for everyone, even for those of us who cannot yet imagine that we have the ability to create art. Full of personal anecdotes from the author's creativity workshops and practical, easy-to-implement advice for tapping in to our hidden creativity, The Artist Inside teaches us:
how to access the dreaming world to heighten creativity that we can create in each piece of artwork a temporary home for spirit how creating a spiritual path can energize us and increase our intuitive capacity
When the process of making art is guided by the inner vision of our sleeping and waking dream states, we connect with something larger than ourself and rediscover that creativity can be both a spiritual path and an important life tool.
