Books that have inspired me:
This book has been a gift beyond the content of its pages. As Minisa Crumbo shares traditional teaching on sacred cycles, the traditions of the Medicine Wheel, and her own personal ‘book of days’… “Spirit Talk” embodies the Energetic of Movement.
At any given time, I can turn to a page or a season to be reminded of the harmony around me. The thought-provoking nature of the author’s message draws me in to the “Spirit Talk” – that personal conversation within.
by Marcellus “Bear Heart” Williams and Molly Larkin
(Traditional teachings as they were passed down to me in the Medicine Circle)
From Publishers Weekly
Bear Heart, a full-blooded Muskogee Creek Indian and one of the last “trained” Medicine Men, shares this knowledge, combining it with his more formal, graduate degree in psychology to build a bridge between Native American and modern spirituality. Categorized as an autobiography, the book is nevertheless constructed episodically rather than chronologically, resulting in a lack of fluidity that may distract some readers. The first section describes Bear Heart’s family, their beliefs and the calling and training he received to be a medicine man. In the second section, great truths of Native American beliefs and Christianity find parallels. Section three further describes the relationship of human beings to each other, to nature and to the Great Being; the importance of the Sacred Pipe; and the purposes of vision quests. It concludes with this question: “The word ‘memorial’ does not indicate that someone has died. It symbolizes that someone has lived. What is going to be the living memorial that you’re going to leave behind?”
Being and Vibration
by Joseph Rael (Beautiful Painted Arrow) and Elizabeth Marlow
In Being & Vibration, Joseph Rael extends the sacred teaching imparted to him while growing up in Picurus Pueblo into the 21st Century. The result is an astounding body of theory, prsented in the language of the visionary, on the subject of vibration and its role in the creation of conscious reality. Rael begins with the vision that the nature of all existence is vibration. From human breath and heartbeat to the pulsating energies of subatomic particles, to expansion and contraction of stars and of the university itself, there is a pulsation – vibration – inhearent in all that exists.
