Overview

Jeanne White Eagle's book, Grace, is an exploration of the questions, "How is the horror of betrayal from those one has so deeply trusted, even possible? And how then, do relationships (friends, relatives, countries) so split apart, heal?"

These questions are awakened on a trip Jeanne and her husband John Pehrson take to Bosnia in 2007. She encounters the victims of the war and their stories first hand.

Not long after her time in Bosnia, haunted by questions brought on by what she had seen and heard, Jeanne herself goes through an encounter of personal betrayal of devastating proportions. In her journey to heal she wrestles with confusion, suppressed emotions of anger and feelings of depression, including the constant struggle of self examination. She soon comes to realize that her own experience carries the answers she has been searching for to the questions born in Bosnia.

You might read Grace as a night voyage of the soul, a journey from light into darkness and back into light.

- Tom Bissinger
Author, Playwright

Grace offers a memorable example of how the Universe answers prayer while also revealing the dangers of getting stuck in form. A great read as well as a valuable book for anyone on the spiritual journey.

Meet the Author

Jeanne White Eagle (Jeanne Lane Pehrson) is an educator and futurist with Cherokee roots. She is co-author of two books on conflict resolution, a founding member (Cast C) of the international musical “Up With People,” worked in the international business arena where she was awarded the prestigious Willis Harman Award by the World Business Academy, and is founder of Up on the Mountain, an organization for teens at risk. She is an accomplished composer and professional classical singer.

Skilled in Conflict Resolution techniques, as of 1996 when she was given the name of Jeanne White Eagle by Native American mystic Joseph Rael, she has followed a vision that has taken her husband, John Pehrson, and herself around the world, often into war zones and other areas of deep conflict. With the use of Sound, Movement and the Open Heart Process, a process designed to help resolve conflict, she and her husband have become Ambassadors for worldwide peace. (In 2009, a biography of Jeanne and John was released, called Journey for the One by Monty Joynes.)

    Grace is a book for anyone who has experienced betrayal in their life. It is not only well-written and a quick read, but gives the reader hope that there is a path to forgiveness, healing and the release of hurts and resentments. Jeanne White Eagle's story is both captivating and instructive. It takes us from a desire to understand how friends and neighbors in Bosnia could become enemies overnight, to her own personal experience of deep betrayal, and through her own struggles to allow love to guide her, heal her and, ultimately, open her up to the power of grace. Jeanne's journey is the journey that many of us take, and her own healing journey empowers us to make a similar passage to our own healing.

    Grace Jeanne White Eagle¿s ¿Grace A Journey from Betrayal to H


    Grace

    Jeanne White Eagle’s “Grace A Journey from Betrayal to Healing” is an announcement that the deep modern cultural taboo against self healing can be bridged. We have the ability to heal ourselves from emotional trauma, but in the process we need to seek divine grace through love. The offered grace may be different from what we expect. “Grace” is an extraordinary personal description of difficulties encountered in the search for grace.

    Jeanne’s emotional trauma was associated with a work she had accepted as relating to her spiritual destiny. This work had taken her to Bosnia, and to lead sacred dances which are a way for people to come to know their spiritual destiny. Jeanne’s choice to do this work was aided by a Native American seer who taught the Way of Inspiration. The Way of Inspiration is based on the ancient wisdom of indigenous peoples. This wisdom is a requisite for the emergence of a ‘new earth’ as prophesied by the Mayan calendar. “Grace” is an exceptional guide for those who want to step toward self healing from abuse, trauma or simply to better know oneself to be in accordance with creating a new earth

    I have had the honor of knowing and working alongside Jeanne Whi

    I have had the honor of knowing and working alongside Jeanne White Eagle for many years.  I appreciate her integrity as she struggles with many of the issues that trouble people.  By asking the question during a trip to Bosnia " How could betrayal occur, where friends and neighbors become enemies even to the point of  torture and death?" Jeanne set in motion a series of experiences where on a smaller and less physically violent level, she played out the answer in her own life.  When betrayal occurs, it seems to shake the very foundation of who we are and how we view life.  As a visionary and spiritual leader for many years, Jeanne along with her husband, John, has a strong foundation of belief.  As this book progresses you see how this very personal betrayal eats at her soul as she tries over and over to use prayer, meditation, and techniques of forgiveness to understand.  The release comes in a moment after several months of struggle, a moment she labels Grace.  And in finding it for herself, she opens in the heart of the reader for the blessings of Grace to arise as well.l
