2 - 4 weeks availability


Weaving together three wisdom traditions-Native American spirituality, depth psychology, and Buddhism-into a profound understanding of the soul's journey, this resource offers vision quests and other nature-based experiences as a way to reestablish an intimate connection with the earth, humankind's original home. The knowledge and beauty of an ancient Sioux story, which serves as the guiding thread of the book, teaches the value of setting out on a quest in the natural world to discover who and what one truly is, while notions of a Buddhist path illustrate how to free oneself from constraining beliefs and conditioning. Seeking to explore the core center of any spiritual quest-a direct, unmediated experience of the sacred-rather than ascribe to one religion or dogma, this inspiring guide is a timely voice that advocates an equitable, sustainable way of living on the earth.
