We are thirteen indigenous grandmothers. . . . We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth, the atrocities of war, the global scourge of poverty, the prevailing culture of materialism, the epidemics that threaten the health of the Earth’s peoples, and with the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We, the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, believe that our ancestral ways of prayer, peacemaking, and healing are vitally needed today. . . . We believe that the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future. In some Native American societies, tribal leaders consulted a council of grandmothers before making any major decisions that would affect the whole community. What if we consulted our wise women elders about the problems facing our global community today? This book presents the insights and guidance of thirteen indigenous grandmothers from five continents, many of whom are living legends among their own peoples. The Grandmothers offer wisdom on such timely issues as nurturing our families; cultivating physical and mental health; and confronting violence, war, and poverty. Also included are the reflections of Western women elders, including Alice Walker, Gloria Steinem, Helena Norberg-Hodge, and Carol Moseley Brown.

A mantra for a new consciousness with an introduction by Lynne McTaggart and contributions by Ervin László, Michael Singer, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Anodea Judith, Kabir Helminski and Mona Polacca. The Soul Awakening Practice is built around a 6-line mantra. A mantra is a sacred utterance. Repetition of a mantra aids in concentration and is believed to have both psychological and sacred powers. This is a book for activists, for ecologists, and for spiritual seekers engaged in the quest for a spiritually coherent and united worldview. The human race has a moral imperative to transform the way we live and The Soul Awakening Practice offers a way for us to engage spiritually. Integrating ancient wisdom, modern science and psychology this mantra prayer is a means by which to reveal a coherent worldview available to each and every one of us. Written by James O’Dea, the former president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and member of the Evolutionary Leaders Group, the book not only includes the prayer itself but a commentary on the power of prayer as well as expanded, contemplative line-by-line reflections and explanations. To provide different viewpoints and perspectives on this new worldview, the book includes commentaries by key luminaries from science, cosmology, evolutionary theory, Yoga, Sufism and indigenous wisdom. Be receptive and allow the prayer to illuminate your insights. Experience your own unique journey of awakening.

This introduction to the fundamentals of Native American women's studies first looks at several definitive topics created by the western cultural notion of feminism, and western historical and religious perspectives on women. These include ecofeminism, gender roles and work, notions of power, essentialism, women's leadership, sexualities, and spirituality in light of gender. The book then discusses these concepts and their history from a traditional Native American point of view. Foremost among the questions that Native American Women's Studies addresses are: How have Native American women governed their nations? How was/is the divine creatrix expressed in Native American social systems? Most significantly, this book sheds light on the radical differences between the indigenous understanding of human experience in terms of gender, and that held and created by western culture.
