 About the Book 

Patients carry their own doctor inside. The come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the physician who resides within each patient a chance to go to work. - Albert Schweitzer____When it comes to healing, how we feel is at least as important as what we know. This is true for both patient and healer because both must connect with feeling if they are to maximize their shared healing journey. (9)____True healing only occurs when both participants are connected in pursuing the common goal of healing. (12)____Choice elevates the spirit by allowing you to exercise your responsibilities to yourself and your faith. (17)____In Indian country, to be healthy means to be in balance. Balance occurs when what you know is the same as what you say, and when what you say is how you really feel. Balance happens when knowledge, feeling, and action are in harmony. That is the essence of your being, your truth. The Navajos call this path Hozho - the way of beauty. To be healthy is to walk in beauty. (24)____The first step a healer must take in helping us create change is to get our attention. Old learning is so engrained and new possibilities so dim that, without realizing it, we may be colluding in giving up our dreams before giving them a shot. (52-53)____Looking again at something we thought we knew - is what gives rise to every creative breakthrough. Every act of genus or insight is simply the result of a prepared mind and a serendipitous event. In a flash we can become enlightened, if we are prepared to harvest the miracle moment. (53)____You probably already have the answers you seek, you just dont see them. (54)____A crucial aspect of ceremonies is the involvement of others. As a species, human beings need each other. It is through relationships of mutuality, of shared interest, by giving and getting, that we find what we wish to gain... connecting with people helps us achieve our innermost strivings. Once we have been joined in a community, we take a little piece of that community with us when we move on. We create community when we come together to make sense of our realities by beginning to share our lives, our stories, and the wisdom we have acquired. Renewing and sharing our spirit selves and the truth of who we are is the path of fulfillment in the season of autumn. (88)____House made of evening lightHappily may I walkHappily with abundant showers may I walkHappily with abundant plants may I walkHappily on the trail of pollen may I walkHappily may I walk- from Navajo Nightway Chant (89)____In Indian country, they say there is no life line, its a spiral. (page?)____Some questions dont have answers, its enough to know they are important. (112)____I can live with doubt and uncertainty. I think its more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong. I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things I dont know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why were here. - Richard Feynman (113)____Im looking forward to the most fascinating experience in life, which is dying. Youve got to approach your dying the way you live your life - with curiosity, with hope, with fascination, with courage and with the help of your friends. Let us have no more pious, wimpy talk about death. The time has come to talk cheerfully and joke sassily about personal responsibility for managing the dying process. - Timothy Leary (118)____Timothy Learys daily diet, last month before dying of prostate cancer at age 75:- 44 cigarettes- 3 cups of coffee- 2 glasses of wine- 1 beer- 1 marijuana joint- 2 morphine pills- 12 balloons of nitrous oxide- ketamine- 3 Leary biscuits - cheese soaked marijuana bud on a cracker____It has always been the prime function of mythology and rite to supply the symbols that move the human spirit forward - Joseph Campbell____Ceremonies are ways of telling stories - even painful ones, ceremonies create times of blessing. Ceremonies provide a structure for getting in touch with our hearts. Ceremonies help us see old certainties in a new way, and something good always happens. (126)____Everything you love will go away and come back to love you another way. - Franz Kafka
