Healing Without Medicine – From Pioneers To Modern Practice

By Albert Amao, PhD., Foreword by Mitch Horowitz.

323 Pages | First Quest Edition 2014 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A., | ISBN: 9780835609210.

‘How Millions have been healed through the Mind alone’.

The aim of this book is to demonstrate the power of thought to heal the mind and body. Amao examines the rationale behind so-called mind, spiritual, and faith healing and explain why this kind of treatment works where conventional medicine fails. Amao also examines the most prominent leaders of the New Thought movement, who used mental and spiritual means to recover their health from supposedly ‘incurable’ diseases, and he describes the mechanism that triggered their healing. Finally, he explains why some people do not respond to any kind of treatment, with medicine or without it.

Mainstream academia should be made aware that mental and spiritual healing is an authentic, American-made phenomenon, that originated in and has flourished since the nineteenth century, particularly in New England. This phenomenon continues to develop today through the emerging field of energy psychology, which includes Thought Field Therapy and its derivatives, such as the Emotional Freedom Technique and similar practices.

Amao’s main hypothesis is this: All methods of mind and spiritual healing are self-healing. Human beings have an inner capacity to heal themselves. Indeed, conventional medicine can be said to heal, because it removes obstacles so that the body can regain its recuperative capacity.

From Chapter 12 – ‘Thomas Jay Hudson, The Scientific Working Hypothesis’ (p. 114):

” Some student of Occultism approach metaphysical studies with the idea of surrendering their will and conscious mind to the direction of the subconscious. This is dangerous, because the subconscious cannot direct itself. The person, who allows his subconscious to control him runs the risk that dormant, anarchic, and destructive forces in the psyche will express themselves at the least, expected times in devastating ways. When the conscious mind surrenders it dominion over the subconscious, the person becomes at the mercy of untamed primeval instincts, which could result in mental illness. As Hudson wrote, the subconscious cannot direct itself, nor can direct us. Its marvelous powers must always be definitely limited if they are to do us any real good. The unrestrained expression of the subconscious is insanity. “

The Shaman And The Medicine Wheel

By Evelyn Eaton (1902 – 1983).

212 Pages | A Quest Original 1982 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605612.

This is the personal logbook of Mahad’yuni (Evelyn Eaton), a woman of white and Indian ancestry. Evelyn is a Metis Medicine Woman of the Bear Medicine Tribe and the Deer Tribe, who received her Pipe from an Arapaho Medicine Man, and much of her eighteen year long training from the Paiute Medicine Man in the Owens Valley, who also made the Pipe for her and blessed it. This first person account of Amerindian healing rituals includes her personal triumphs over physical affliction. It is the story of a Sweat Lodge, a Medicine Wheel, Shamans, the Grandfathers, and ‘close to Mother Earth’ people. It is a story of deep compassion. It is a story of tenderness. It is a story of power – the power of extraordinary healing capacities that are available to every human being.

She subsequently immersed herself in study of Native American spiritual traditions. Her many books include:

From page 173:

” The Wiyag Wachipipi (dance looking at the Sun) is one of our greatest rites and was first held many, many winters after our people received the sacred Pipe from the White Buffalo Cow Woman. It is held each year during the Moon of Fattening (June) or the Moon of Cherries Blackening (July) always at the same time when the moon is full, for the growing and dying of the moon reminds us of our ignorance, which comes and goes; but when the moon is full it is as if the eternal light of the Great Spirit were upon the whole world. “

The Etheric Double – The Health Aura

By Arthur Edward Powell (1882 – 1969).

156 Pages | First published in 1925, 1969, 1979, second edition, first reprint 2015 | Hardcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595632.

This classic tekst has long been used as a resource book by students and scholars of astral phenomena. It’s subject is the subtle body, which all human beings possess, physical in nature but invisible to ordinary eyes. Of interest to healers, body workers, and all students of esoteric lore, Powell’s discussion of the anatomy of the subtle body, its energy centres and functions, is perceptive and comprehensive.  The others in the series are: The Mental Body, The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena, The Causal Body and the Ego and The Solar System.

From Chapter I – ‘General Description’ (p.3):

” It is important to notice, that the dense body and the Etheric Double vary together as to their quality; hence one who sets himself deliberately to purify his dense body, at the same time automatically refines its etheric counterpart. Into the composition of the Etheric Double must enter something of all the different grades of etheric matter, but the proportions may vary greatly, and are determined by several factors, such as the race, sub-race, and type of man, as well as by his individual karma. “

War and the Soul – Healing Our Nation’s Veterans from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

By Edward Tick, Ph.D.

329 Pages | First Quest Edition 2005 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608312.

Post-traumatic stress disorder increasingly afflicts veterans of modern warfare. The New England Journal of Medicine (July 2005) reports, that it affects almost 20% of soldiers returning from Iraq. Tragically, PTSD impacts all aspects of life. Some vets can’t hold jobs or sustain relationships. Others have recurrent nightmares or won’t leave home, fearing they may attack ’the enemy’ seen in the faces of those they meet.

To begin healing, says Edward Tick, we must see PTSD as a disorder of identity itself. War’s violence can cause the very Soul to flee and be lost for life. Drawing on history, mythology, and thirty years of experience, Dr. Tick reveals the universal dimensions of veteran’s Soul wounding. He uses methods from ancient Greek, Native American, Vietnamese, and other traditions to restore the Soul so that the veteran can, at last, truly return home. His work is invaluable for veterans of any war as well as for their families and all, who would help them.

From the Conclusion (p. 286):

” Our goal is not just to awaken the Soul; that is what childhood, religious and secular education is meant to do. Rather, our goal is to ‘grow’ the Soul large enough, to help it become wise and strong enough, so that it can surround the dominating wound we call trauma. When we do this, PTSD can evaporate and we can have people like Mr. Tiger, devoted to the peaceful cultivation of the earth and to international friendship and reconciliation. The formula for the war-wounded Soul is simple: surround trauma with Soul. Its application may be the most difficult and important work we ever undertake. ”

Colonel Olcott and the Healing Arts – Blavatsky Lecture 2007

By Michael Gomes.

49 Pages | Blavatsky Lecture 2007 | Softcover |  The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

On August 29, 1882, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907), President-Founder of the Theosophical Society, was in Galle, Ceylon, on a lecturing tour to raise funds for the opening of the schools for Buddhist children. One of the people who came forward to contribute was a man, whose arm and leg had been paralyzed for eight years. Olcott, who had read the literature on animal magnetism, or mesmerism as it was also termed, and magnetic healing in his youth, says he was moved to try some healing passes with his hands over the man’s arm, telling him that he hoped he might feel better.

Later that evening the gentleman returned to thank the Colonel, saying indeed his condition had improved. This encouraged Olcott to treat the arm again. There was a marked improvement when he returned the next morning, and, after two more days of treatment, he could move his arm and open and close his hand. Olcott also tried working on the man’s leg, which responded well enough to allow his to walk freely and even run. To show his thanks, the now-healed man brought a friend, who was also paralyzed. When he was cured, others came in increasing numbers, to the point, the Colonel recalled, ‘within a week or so my house was besieged by sick persons from dawn until late night, all clamoring for the laying on of my hands’.

Within the space of a year, he would treat some 8.000 people, until, at the verge of his own health breaking down, he was ordered by his teacher to stop. This little-known episode in the work undertaken by Olcott offers and instructive glimpse into the revival of alternative healing that was occuring at the time and which has now entered the mainstream.

The Practice of Dream Healing – Bringing Ancient Greek Mysteries into Modern Medicine

By Edward Tick, Ph.D.

291 Pages | First Quest Edition 2001 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835607995.

A Sacred Journey to bring Soul back into Treatment.

Asklepios was the gentle Greek God of healing. Like Christ, he was said to have walked the earth performing miracle cures. His medicine was practiced by priests known as therapeutes (the first therapists) who interpreted patients’ dreams, in which the God gave advice. The results, as well-documented in literature and thousands of ancient testimonies, reveal the root of modern medical science and psychotherapy.

In this classic work, psychotherapist and Greek scholar Dr. Edward Tick explores the God as an archetype of the divine physician symbolizing the Self. What he discovers restores the foundation for a truly holistic medicine. First, he transports us through myth and history on an imaginal pilgrimage based on his journeys with patients to ancient Greek healing sites, where they recreate the dream incubation ceremonies once held in Asklepian temples. Then, from case-studies he crafts practical methods that today’s healing professionals and lay readers can use anywhere, with or without the help of specialists. His radical model shows how consulting rooms, hospitals, and any place of rest can become sanctuaries for the recovery of the whole person.

Homeric Hymn to Asklepios:

” Doctor of our ailing, Asklepios, I begin your praise,

Son of Apollo, awakened through Mother Koronis

Of the Dotion Plains, daughter of King Flegion,

Great to humanity, soother of cruel suffering.

 . . . Και συ ουτω χαιρε, αναξ. Λιτομαι δε σ’αοιδη.

 . . . And thus are you welcomed, Master. By this song I beseech you. “

auteur: Tick, E.
ISBN: 9780835607995
Additional DescriptionMore Details

For two decades, Dr. Edward Tick has researched and applied this age-old art in contemporary settings. Now he leads us through myth and history on an imaginal pilgrimage based on actual journeys he has made with clients to ancient healing sites. He also provides techniques we can use anywhere, without the help of specialists. His radical model shows how a consulting room, hospital, or any place of rest can be a haven for the recovery of the whole person. A review in Dream Time the Journal of the Association for the Study of Dreams, concludes with “The Practice of Dream Healing is many different books woven into one fascinating whole: travelogue, personal journey, historical narrative, mythological study, psychological inquiry. As travel writing and personal narrative, it is compelling and enjoyable to read; as historical, psychological, and philosophical inquiry, it has much to offer contemporary dreamworkers and others in the healing professions.” Edward Tick, Ph.D., has practiced psychotherapy since 1975. He began treating severely traumatized Vietnam veterans in 1979. By the mid-1980s, he was convinced that more radical transformative techniques were necessary to heal the deep wounds to the soul each survivor endured. Thus, he embarked on a worldwide exploration of traditional healing practices. He began teaching the Greek tradition and leading healing and growth workshops in the early 1990s. Since 1995, he has led eight healing journeys to Greece and Turkey, during which he has focused on the powerful dream healing techniques of Asklepios. He is the director and senior psychotherapist of Sanctuary: A Center for Mentoring the Soul in Albany, New York.

The Mystery Of Healing

By anonymous authors.

95 Pages | Published in 1958, First Quest Book revised edition 1968, third Quest printing 1981 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835601145.

In the last few decades, medicine has made vast strides, although there is still much to be learned about the basic problems of disease. At the same time, public interest in spiritual healing and unorthodox methods has greatly increased, often without critical or intelligent study of their results. Yet the most careful scientific scrutiny shows that in a small number of case quasi-miraculous cures do indeed occur.

In this book, the writers attempt to discuss the conditions, which allow exceptional cures to take place or which seem to prevent them. The fundamental question is: ‘What heals’? This raises further questions: Why does healing not always take place when all the apparently obvious conditions are there for it to do so? Moreover, why is it that sometimes a quite fantastic method will succeed when proved and tried medical treatment has failed?

The group, which produced this small book consists of qualified medical practitioners and psychotherapists, together with others who have had long experience with unorthodox methods of diagnosis and treatment. While acknowledging all that can be and has been done by medical science and psychotherapy to alleviate suffering, the conclusions arrived and emphasise the interior sources of healing that exist deep within each individual.

From Appendix A – ‘Karma and Health’ (p. 87):

” Thus in the case of illness – and for that matter in happy experiences also – the individual, who accepts the idea of karma can ask himself: ‘What am I doing to deserve this? And if he is in pain, ‘What is there in me that perpetuates this misery? In what way is my attitude towards it, or towards life itself, in error?’ And if this leads him to learn the lesson he has to learn, he may find himself quickly and unaccountably free of that situation. “

The Science and the Art of Indian Medicine

By G. Srinivasa Murti (1887 – unknown).

196 Pages | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590337.

Many and varied have been the objections that have been raised, from time to time, against the recognition and encouragement by the State of the indigenous systems of medicine like the Ayurveda, the Siddha and the Unani; these objections have always been challenged by exponents of these systems as well as by others interested in their promotion. The resulting controversy has sometimes been mild and sometimes wild. Some of the objections are trivial, while others are vital. And round none has the fire of controversy raged so fiercely as on the central question whether these Indian systems of medicine are scientific or not. The object of this memorandum is to view things from a scientific standpoint and stimulate scientific discussion on a subject which, it is clear, can now be neither ignored nor shelved.

From Chapter ‘Ayurveda as an Art – The Past and the Present’ (p. 195):

” Hence it is that, in Indian Medicine, it has always been considered necessary that the training of the future physician should provide not only for the study of Medicine in all its branches, as as to equip him or her with the capacity to have proper expert orientation to the problems of health and ill-health but also for the study of the Humanities, the Classics, as will enable him to have the proper humanist-orientation to Life and its Vital human problems. In other words, the ancient scheme of studies was so ordered as to give to the world great physicians, who were not only great scientists, but also great humanists. ”

Native Healer – Initiation into an Ancient Art

By Medicine Grizzlybear Lake.

199 Pages | Copyright 1991, third printing 1993| Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606678.

Many claim to be healers and spiritual teachers: the author is both. Here he explains how a person is called to be a medicine man or woman and the trials and tests of a candidate. Lake gives an exciting glimpse into the world of Native American Shamanism. He was trained by numerous Native American teachers, including Rolling Thunder, and has conducted hundreds of ceremonies and lectures.

From the Introduction (p. 1):

” Traditional Native healers were the people, who provided medical leadership for the c0mmunity in the past, for most Native tribal systems. They were the seers, visionairies, doctors and counselors for the people. They advised the people about good health practices, which were medico-religious in nature, and they taught them to develop spiritually. When the people became sick, the Native healer doctored them. And if the healer did not have an answer to a particular problem, he or she would seek a vision by consulting with the Great Creator and spirits to find solutions. During such times the shaman could often see into the future. In some ways, that is what I am trying to share here. “

Spiritual Healing – Doctors Examine Therapeutic Touch and other Holistic Treatments

By Dora Kunz (1904 – 1999).

333 Pages | First Quest Edition 1995 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607143.

A spiritual revolution is underway in health care. More and more doctors, nurses, and counselors are recognizing that health means treating the soul and psyche as well as the body. In this new edition of a classic collection, the best minds in holistic healing explore the spiritual basis of the alternative health care movement.

From Chapter I: ‘Healing as World View (p. 1):

” Is healing a process related to the nature of the cosmos? The authors in this section, a physician and two professors, argue that it is:

” We interact with the universe in ways that are profound. ”  – Larry Dossey.

” A person becomes whole physically, emotionally, mentally and at deeper levels, resulting ideally in an integration with the underlying inward powers of the universe “.  – Weber.

” To be whole is to be encompassed by the sense of the divine in the divine cosmos “. – Skolimowski.

Thus health and disease are placed in a cosmic setting. “

Kahuna Healing – Holistic Health Practices of Polynesia

By Serge Kahili King

173 Pages | 1983 | Paperback | Quest Books, Wheaton | ISBN: 9780835605724

Serge King, Hawaiian shaman amd author of Imagineering for Health and Earth Energies, believes in the power of individuals to heal themselves or others. He says that emotions can heal or hurt, and when used as a positive force, their healing power can be stupendous. In this book, he sets forth the ancient Hawaiian tradition which includes a complete program for the prevention and cure of illness–a holistic health program involving the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of human beings.

”You may be asking yourself by now, ‘What is this word Huna and what is a Kahuna?’ Huna is a Hawaiian word meaning ’that which is hidden, or not obvious.’ Sometimes we call it the hidden knowledge of the secret reality. The idea is not that anyone purposely hid it away, but only that it is usually hard to see. The term Kahuna can be translated as ‘a transmitter of the secret,’ and it was originally intended to be used for those who belonged to an order which practiced and taught the knowledge.”

The Chakras And The Human Energy Fields

By Shafica Karagulla, M.D (1914  – ca. 1986) and Dora van Gelder Kunz (1904 – 1999).

243 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835606417.


Shafica Karakulla, specialist in neuropsychiatry, and Dora van Gelder Kunz, gifted clairvoyant and healer, present experimental evidence that illness can be seen in the subtle energy fields of the body. Fascinating case studies of actual patients show that clairvoyant observation can diagnose disease and even reveal potential illness before it manifests in physical symptoms. The key to health and disease, the author shows, lies in the dynamic interaction between the body’s physical, emotional and mental fields and universal energy fields. Understanding this interaction can help us alter our energy patterns in the direction of better self-integration, health and wholeness.

From Chapter 17: ‘The Role of Consciousness – Towards the Future (p. 190):

” The chakras are centers of energy, which are constantly interacting with one another from hour to hour, and changes in the energy patterns occur as a continuing process. Healing therefore reflected in changes of rhythm and other basic alterations in these centers. Meditation and visualization, if done regularly and combined with changes in behavior, can produce modifications in the chakra patterns, and these are reflected in the person’s health and physical well-being. A genuine transformation can thus be observed. Whether the person knows about the role the chakras play as energy centers makes no difference whatsoever. “

Right Thinking – The Royal Road To Health

By Manly P. Hall (1901 – 1990).

52 Pages | Published in 1982 | Softcover | The Philosophical Research Society Inc. | ISBN: 0893148121.

Humanity is the only form of life in our physical environment capable of the experience of joy; therefore, it should be assiduously cultivated. If pleasures are normal, require no compromise of moral or ethical values, and are free from dissipation, they are a valuable defense against morbid conditions arising in the mind or body.

A bit advice stated by the English scholar Robert Berton, author of The Anatomy of Melancholy, is summarized in the six words, ‘Be not solitary, be not idle‘. We should all maintain a direct and friendly contact with the society to which we belong, and regardless of the availability of leisure, we should never permit ourselves to be idle. If we remain concerned with the common good and contribute in various practical ways to the well-being of the community in which we reside, we have every reason to hope that health problems can be controlled and for the most part overcome. Health, like happiness, must be earned. It is a reward for constructive involvement in labors dedicated to the common good.

From Page 10:

” Paracelsus regarded disease as an organism with its roots in the invisible nature of man, like parasitic plants or, like lecherous animals, sucking the blood of his Soul. He declared that as lions and tigers attack and devour humans and each other, so diseases are ravenous beasts loosed from the matrix of perverse impulses, and must be treated as such; not as mere aggregations of irrational malignancies. A disease is a story or diary, usually a rather comprising document. It sets forth that which we would tell no man, for it is a forced confession. When man can be laid low in no other way, he is humiliated by infirmity. But even the ailment may be a blessing in disguise, for by such checking we are often protected from ourselves. We are prevented by a lesser ache from doing a greater wrong. “

I Send a Voice

By Evelyn Sybil Mary Eaton (1902 – 1983).

178 Pages | First Quest Book edition 1978, 5th printing 1990 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605116.

A FIRST PERSON ACCOUNT of the consciousness expanding, transforming rites of an Amerindian Sweat Lodge.

Evelyn Eaton writes of her compelling determination to become worthy of participating in a Sweat Lodge healing ritual. Later, after undergoing ordeals inside and outside the Lodge, she dared to ask Power Man for a Pipe. I Send a Voice provides an unusually authentic picture of the Amerindian during one of his most sacred and esoteric rites. With Evelyn, we live through the deep drama of numerous experiences of physical and spiritual healings: grow to love, admire, and respect the powerful Grandfathers.

From page 36:

” Sharing was the point. Someone gathered and brought the tule reeds. Someone brought the rocks and the wood for the fire. Someone drew the water and carried it in pails. Many hands must have built the Sweat Lodge, cutting and trimming the willow trees, planting them in the ground, bending them symmetrically together to support the roof. In the old days someone would have cured the deerskin or the buffalo hide to stretch on the framework. Then there would be a ritual to bless it, in which everyone concerned would take part.

The description of such a ritual was in Chapter III of Brown’s The Sacred Pipe. There was a diagram showing the Inipi, the purification lodge. The Sweat Lodge here was made by another tribe, but the principle was the same. I thought of the circle, in all its symbolism, from a glyph of the Creator, that Point within the Circle, whose center is everywhere, to its representative, the sun, source of light, life and spiritual illumination. From there, I went to meditation on the Medicine Wheel, a mandala of concentric depths and intricate designs, where everything in the universe has its appropriate place. “

Mandala – Luminous Symbols for Healing (First Quest Edition)

By Judith Cornell (1941–2010), Ph.D., with a Foreword by Drs. Joan and Miron Borysenko.

154 Pages | First Quest Edition 1994 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607100.

The Sacred Art of the Mandala reflects the Soul or luminous consciousness, the essence of who we really are. Judith Cornell wrote Mandala to help in the healing of body, mind and spirit, to lift the veil or spiritual darkness, and to alleviate personal and planetary suffering.

Contemplating and creating Mandalas, such as those in these pages, can help heal our sense of spiritual and psychic fragmentation, manifest creative energy and optimism, and reconnect us to our essential Being.

The book honours the work and thoughts of the illumined saints and sages of all traditions and celebrates the common bonds, which unite all practitioners of Sacred Art. Just as the many colours of the rainbow are reflections of a single source of radiance, so too the spiritual art of many traditions flows from a single Source – The One Consciousness of ultimate Enlightenment.

From Chapter 6 – Illuminating Sacred and Mystical Realities (p. 123):

” The human person is the from and the fullness of creation. In humankind, God brings to fullness all his creation. God created humankind, so that humankind might cultivate the earthly and thereby create the heavenly. Humankind should be the banner of divinity. Divinity is aimed at humanity. “

Hatha Yoga – The Occult Science of Health

By Captain P.G. Bowen (1882 – 1940).

19 Pages | A rare edition from 19xx | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

The interpretation of the term Hatha Yoga, suggested by the sub-title of this paper, is one which may cause a little surprise, and perhaps, disagreement. Speaking in the widest sense, however, the interpretation is entirely correct, as I hope to make clear before I finish.

From: ‘Yoga What It Is’ (p. 3):

” The teWm YOGA literally translated means UNION. It refers to the process of harmonising, or unifying all departments or aspects of the individual Man with the inner, or central Principle, until the whole Life, and all that goes to make up that very comprehensive term, becomes balanced accurately, as it should be, on its AXIS. When this condition is attained all the outer departments swing accurately about the mathematical point (position, without dimension) which is the centre, and which itself, being merely abstract POSITION, does not move at all, and because of this fact governs the relative movements of outer sections of the wheel. This condition of balance constitutes perfection of individual development.

A clairvoyant and a psychiatrist pool their talents in a study of the human health aura! No other work can speak to this subject with such confidence. Imagine:

  1. Taking one of the most respected clairvoyants in the world.
  2. A psychiatrist recognized for his fine contributions to his field.
  3. Having the clairvoyant study the aura of a human subject using her unusual talents.
  4. Having the psychiatrist study the psyche of the same subject.
  5. Then finally integrating their observations to arrive at new and startling conclusions concerning the subtle (physically invisible) human bodies. It has never been done before. It may never be done again.

From page 20:

” A particular feature of the aura, which stands out to the vision of every competent clairvoyant is a series of quickly moving vortices of energy situated at certain points of the body. These were known of old, and are often found represented in ancient diagrams, whether of East or West, on statues or carvings, and so on. Sometimes – as in the halo of Christian saints, or in the caste-marks of Hindus – a particular one of these centers is emphasized and the rest left out. But in any case they appear pretty constant both in ancient traditions and in the perceptions of modern sensitives. Moreover, it is not by any means essential to be able to see to realize their existence, and many people become aware of them through their hands when examining a person with an extra-sensory touch. “

The Healing Energy Of Love – A Personal Journal

By Prof. John Allan.

175 Pages | Softcover | First published in 1986 | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606031.

‘ One man’s journey into the heart of all that lives’.

The book takes the form of Prof. John Allan’s diary entries over the course of a year showing how it is possible to escape from the confines of the world of matter and open oneself to the profound and timeless Love of the world of Spirit. It is a supremely practical book which, among other things, will make clear how illness is caused and how you, like the author, can heal yourself. It also deals with such issues as overcoming grief and conquering the fear of death. Furthermore, it enables you to see what keeps you from feeling the joy that is inherent in life and from experiencing the love that is everyone’s birthright. These and many other problems in living (and dying) yield to the overwhelming presence of Spirit.

In this book, John Allan, in prose as pellucid as the mountain streams he frequents, beckons you to follow him into the world of Spirit and to learn for yourself how Spirit works – and how it can work for you. Can any of us afford not take this journey at some time in our life? You are fortunate to have a guide like John Allan to help illuminate your Way.

From page 12:

Tuesday May 10, 1983:

” The ‘way’ one uses to find God doesn’t really matter unless we get focused on the way and make that our truth. What does matter is the losing of self. And if this comes through prayer, church, or other means, then so be it; for the life we find when having lost self will teach us, show us better to be with that Life. Thus there will come a time when the way will drop away, for the experiencing of Spirit and its life will be sufficient. “

The Vision Keepers – Walking for Native Americans and the Earth

By Doug Alderson.

292 Pages | Published in 2007 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608510.

We are all seekers… Some find their path on pilgrimage to the Mahabodhi Temple in India or the Haji Ali mausoleum as they embark on a journey to Mecca. Others find God at the burial site of St. James in the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

Author and environmentalist Doug Alderson meets ’the Great Spirit’ through the ancient spiritual practice of walking. The Vision Keepers is the compelling true story of a seeker who, under the guidance of Bear Heart, a Muskogee Creek Indian and Medicine Man, finds unity with our nation’s native people and reconnects with the earth through profound and mysterious means.

From the Epilogue (p. 260 & 261):

” The Hopi, along with traditional people worldwide, believe it is their role to uphold global balance through their ceremonies and lifestyles. As tribal life has eroded, the hefty burden has fallen on fewer and fewer people. It is now up to everyone, through prayers, thoughts, and actions, to share the responsibility of keeping life in harmonious synchronisation. To create a peaceful and beautiful world for the unborn is perhaps our highest purpose. A great adventure lies ahead, one that will present us with critical choices and challenges. I pray that we will adhere to that old Quaker adage slightly altered, to ‘live simply so that others – and the earth’s creatures – may simply live. “
