SHAMANISM / ECOLOGY"In this time of climate change our planet is asking us to raise our consciousness and awareness and to find a state of peace, balance, and harmony within us. Weather Shamanism is filled with brilliant teachings that will fuel your understanding and insight not only into weather but about life itself."--Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval, Medicine for the Earth, and How to Heal Toxic ThoughtsWith the growing consensus that global warming is a fact comes the realization that the increasingly violent weather we are experiencing is its chief manifestation. Each storm, each flood, each blizzard seems to break 100-year-old records for both intensity and damage. Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases may be too little, too late. Through a unique blend of anthropological research, shamanic journeys, and personal stories and anecdotes, Nan Moss and David Corbin show how humans and weather have always affected each other, and how it is possible to influence the weather. They present teachings directly from the spirits of weather that show how our thoughts and emotions affect weather energetics. They also reveal the ceremonial and therapeutic aspects of "weather dancing," a practice used to communicate with the weather spirits. Weather Shamanism is about transformation--of ourselves, and thus our world. It is about how we can develop an expanded worldview that honors spiritual realities in order to create a working partnership with the spirits of weather and thereby help to restore well-being and harmony to Earth.NAN MOSS and DAVID CORBIN have been faculty members of Michael Harner's Foundation for Shamanic Studies since 1995 and also teach courses at Esalen Institute inCalifornia and the New York Open Center. They have been researching and teaching the spiritual aspects of weather since 1997 and have a private shamanic practice located in Port Clyde, Maine. Their website is www.shamanscircle.com.
The wondrous and mystical geography of northwestern Argentina is the setting for this adventurous tale of encounters with the deep spiritual realms of the earth. And in the wilderness of the Quebrada de las Conchas even the old spirits of the primordial earth want to talk about the future! They have messages for us about humanity’s unfulfilled destiny on the earth. Gary and his wife Ulla are both highly trained healers who are drawn repeatedly to this unspoiled region of the world, to walk the land, and to receive teachings of how we each have a part in creating the future earth now. Old idols are swept away as a deeper and surprising understanding opens of what it means to step into a fully awakened relationship with the earth and to join with the consciousness of all its beings. Interwoven within this story are the personal experiences of the author as an energetic healer, his years in training and his active practice. The role of personal healing is intertwined with humanity’s path of evolution, how we all liberate our true selves to be the creators of the next world.
Native American lineage holders have long been cautious about sharing their spiritual truths because the essence of this wisdom has been so often misunderstood. In Walking with Grandfather, authentic Lakota lineage holder and award-winning storyteller Joseph M. Marshall breaks this silence with the very best from a lifetime of lessons passed on to him by his grandfather. With him, you will gain access to the timeless teachings that until now remained largely unheard outside the culture of the Lakota people.
"When we began our search for consultants for Into the West, we were looking for individuals with a deep knowledge of the culture and history of the Lakota people. In Joe Marshall, we found that person, but the happy surprise was that we also found a poet, a storyteller, and an educator who led us through challenging terrain with great patience and wisdom."
