Overview

Flyn Devon has always been haunted by voices. Alcohol and prescription drugs promised peace, but the cost was high. When he’s entrusted with an elk-hide bag representing his grandfather's spirit and told to perform an honor ceremony over it every morning and night for a year, Flyn realizes this might be his chance to understand the voices and learn more about his Lakota roots. The peace he hopes to gain from this knowledge could improve his relationship with Selena, whose dead husband’s spirit won’t leave her alone and who shares a strange and mystical connection with Amach, a medicine woman living in a different time and space. While trying to help Amach, Selena learns truths that apply to all humans regarding how to stand in balance on our Mother Earth. Remembering only that he called his grandfather 'Pop Pop’, the spirit bundle enables Flyn to learn more about the man who was revered by family and the people of the Cheyenne River Reservation. With this year-long commitment and a four-day Vision Quest, Flyn finds a chance for reconciliation with his native roots and self-forgiveness from the shame surrounding his addictions. He also learns that Selena and Amach are tied to him by threads that weave a tapestry of passion, pain, wisdom, and magic. Written for the developing genre of Visionary Fiction, “The Spirit Bundle” (book two of Earlene Gleisner's Sacred Bundle series) is a rich and human story of personal growth and spirituality. With elements of romance, paranormal adventure and mystery, it’s sure to keep readers turning pages long after the sun goes down.

About the Author

Earlene Gleisner, RN/Reiki Master, is following her long-held dream of writing and offering Reiki. She has contributed articles to two Canadian anthologies and a medical manual for physicians and written medical and news articles, plus personal essays, to local newspapers. Through her publishing company, White Feather Press, she created "Reiki In Everyday Living" as a complement to her practice and teachings as a Reiki Master. That collection of essays and poems has been translated into four languages and published in five countries.
"Just For Today" is a channeled teaching focused on The Five Precepts of Reiki with a Native American flavor. Three short, non-fiction Reiki ebooks will be available in 2017: Reiki: Common Sense and Science, Reiki for Professionals, Reiki in the Now.
Her fiction includes three short stories. “Life On A Limb” is a story of transition. “Angel Breath” tells of a Hospice nurse who is now a widow and facing her first Christmas alone. “The Escape” introduces Sam and Lydia, grandparents who run away from home in their Air Stream and will include thirteen more stories of their adventures.
The Sacred Bundle Series is her current project and was inspired by her thirty-three years of traveling with the indigenous people of this Turtle Island and her studies into paranormal activities. This series of four novels weaves a circular tale about relationships across time, which includes the relationships we have with ourselves, each other, our spiritual paths, and with our Earth. The first book, "The Marriage Bundle" is available through www.standinginbalance.com, as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It will soon be in eBook form on Kindle and other devices. The second book of the series, "The Spirit Bundle" will be published in February, 2017, and, in time, "The Women’s Bundle" and "The Earth Bundle" will follow.
