Indigenous wisdom vs. I have known Kedar for a long time as a man of spirit with remarkable devotion to healing. He tends to this duty with royalty and ferocious commitment. What we do to Creation is therefore done to ourselves.

If we wish to live a meaningful life, we need to treat everything w Well, first of all, in order to enjoy this book I had to accept that spiritual vision is possible. If we wish to live a meaningful life, we need to treat everything with respect, compassion and tenderness. Love trumps all else. Purpose in life is important, but society confuses us as to what purpose should be. We each have to find out for ourselves and there are many paths to finding this out.
Some come to realize certain truths via science, others via nature, some via relationships, some via religion and I am sure I don't know the other millions of ways that "truth" comes to people. What I do feel is true is that it can come to everyone and that the Universe is working towards that end so that humans can stop all the suffering that is part of our present world and live in peace.

I believe Tom worked with a writer, nonetheless, his description of an inner state while laying in a bog with a straw in his mouth in order to catch a deer who will come to drink still blows my mind. If it were historical fiction, if it were a tale of fear and loathing mysticism, if it were science fiction it would be laudable. In re-creating this state my own neurons recall times, mostly during discovery, that the line between myself and other blurred into nothingness.

The everythingness will leave you haunted by its call. Sep 24, Bock Moggler rated it liked it. I liked the spirituality and some of Brown's opinions on the current state of our society and cultural values. However, some of his opinions were a little too strong and came off as him being judgemental.
The way he criticized society but then profited off the very things he spoke against rubbed me the wrong way. I will say though that some of his teachings left a positive impact on me and changed my perspective on life. Feb 17, Kaitie Franklin rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone.

I loved reading this. It provides insight into the world from a Native perspective as well as being accessible and non-fictional. I love the insight it provides into the spirit also.
VISION QUEST: THE MAP IS NOT THE TERRITORY - John E. Quinlan
It is a great book to read. My daughter went to a niture school based on these teachings and one of Tom Brown's students started the groups meant to create more attachment to nature again. We have become disconnected and need to work to become connected again.
Check his books out!! Aug 25, Molly rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. This book provided me with a major shift in perspective! It may not be true, but I would love to think that it is and live my life as though it is. No journey dwells in the past, though, even when it might find inspiration and strength there. And so, Visionquest is poised to take on an expansive world tour to celebrate 5 years of the label alongside an array of artists and DJs who have played important roles in the growth of the project over the past half decade.
Five years of Visionquest will be a gathering of old and new worlds, of old and new friends, of old and new gods, of the inner and outer spheres, of the sacred and the profane, of the one and the many.
