The Seven Paths, Anasazi Foundation, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2013, $14.95
Many of us have experienced being cut off from family, friends and community, and many of us have experienced the feeling of being healed by time in nature. This short yet powerful book, written in poetic stanza form, follows the journey of a young man that flees his people in anger, only to find himself at first confronted and then healed by the seven paths in nature that eventually lead him back home. Each path, such as wind or stone, presents the choice to either walk backward into negative emotions or to practice forward walking to soothe anger, heal emotional wounds, and find the way from “I” to “we.” Drawn from the experiences and meditations of Good Buffalo Eagle, cofounder of the Anasazi Foundation, the lessons of ancient Anasazi tribesman outlined in the book teach how to be in harmony with all of creation.
