Praise for The Wind Is My Mother: The Life and Teachings of a Native American Shaman

"This fascinating book is a rare combination of universal truths and practical applications. It is an excellent manual for living a healthy life in a complex world."--John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus "Bear Heart, a full-blooded Muskogee Creek Indian and one of the last 'trained' medicine men, shares this knowledge, combining it with his more formal, graduate [studies] in psychology to build a bridge between Native American and modern spirituality."--Publishers Weekly "At once mystical and utterly practical, Bear Heart's message is not a call to conversion, but the testimony of a life so fully lived that it can heal others. To read it is to be inspired to live one's own life with more attention, harmony and hope."--Lorene Cary, author of If Sons, Then Heirs: A Novel

"Bear Heart, a Muskogee Creek Indian medicine man, tells his story, including his insights about receiving the power of the Great Spirit through fasting, chanting, and vision quests."--St. Petersburg Times "Inspiring...Bear Heart weaves together anecdotes and philosophy demonstrating that traditional Native American wisdom can be applied in today's world to live a peaceful, balanced life. A charismatic storyteller, Bear Heart's autobiography is rich not only with the amazing accomplishments and wisdom of his life as a medicine man but also with the ages-old legends of his people."--Evolving Woman
