“Hear me now! All people of the Earth, at one time, were tribal people. For thousands, and thousands and thousands of years our ancestors lived in small groups surrounded by Nature. Shamans occurred before there were cities, or any religion known to humans today. Imagine it. Somewhere in your tall family tree, your kinfolk were shamanic/ecstatic peoples.. Hunters, dancers, ritualists, adept members of the animal tribes. Even if we don’t use this wisdom today, we have this wisdom inside of us in our DNA.” from A Tribe of One

A review from Amazon.com…
A Tribe of One is a refreshing take on the subject of contemporary issues and healing modalities associated with modern shamanic practitioners. Approaching the aspect that if one can heal oneself, then by extension one can then start to impact the world as we know it, in a way to bring about healing of the world. Spare prose that carries one hell of a wallop that honors what has gone on before but is not bound by it.
From a Reader~
I have never read a book that triggered so much thought.
As I am reading another person’s story, my own remembering is happening- memories are surfacing,
not just as I am reading, but also during the rest of the day… thoughts of my childhood and family, memories of who I am, flood out from unlocked places to be rewoven into the powerful journey of a child that is awakening in me now.
Powerful reawakening is happening from this experience.
Thank you ~
Thank you for this experience in making this happen, I am very inspired by your writing.
