[[ Free eBook ]] One Spirit Many Peoples: Manifesto for Earth SpiritualityAuthor Stephen Harrod Buhner – Schematicwiringdiagram.co

In One Spirit Many Peoples, Stephen Buhner has written a book that needed to be written Taken from his own personal experience, Buhner writes of the conflicting views centered around Native American spiritual traditions, and both the seeking out of those traditions by many non natives, and the sharing and withholding of ritual and ceremonies by American Indians Buhner gets to the heart of the matter, as he notes that he and his wife both have come under attack from Indian groups who oppose any sharing of native spiritual traditions he describes some of his own spiritual awakenings, and provides quotes, profiles and histories regarding views from native elders and others over this issue In the end, Buhner sees the conflict as one between what he calls The Colonizing Mind, or The Machine Mind, and The Indigenous Mind, or a mind concerned foremost with earth centered spirituality It is fair to say that Buhner feels the universalist approach, as opposed to one of separation, would do to heal ourselves and the earth at this time It s a fascinating and provocative book, one which I hope will elicit response from a lot of people, natives and non natives Great reading. Argues For The Appropriateness Of Earth Centered Religion, And Supports The Adoption Of Native American Spiritual Practices By Persons Of Any Ancestry
