Buckminster Fuller reminds us, "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete." This book provides just that model, as well as concrete practices for living it. The model is derived from ancient wisdom traditions, modeled on the pulses, cycles, and seasons of our beloved Earth Mother. It deeply grounds the reader in a "this world" spirituality that blends indigenous cosmologies, earth-honoring ritual, and time-tested models for living with modern sensibilities.

The proposed text presents the biography of an extraordinary man, who has awakened to his own purpose in life as a servant to conscious evolution for all humanity. His life story, full of adventure, cosmic "interventions," and synchronicity is on par with that of the luminaries documented in these biographies and the time has come for his story to be told. don Oscar's story is also the story of each one of us. The only reason his story has not been told until now is that he was first charged with creating opportunities for others to awaken to their higher purpose through his teachings as part of an oral tradition. Now, after completing his "compacto" (sacred contract) with his Andean teachers and mentors, he has been released from service to tell his story in writing. And it is an extraordinary story, dealing with nothing less than individual, spiritual, and planetary transformation.

If you feel that returning to Native ways is our only hope, you will like this book. It is about don Oscar Miro-Quesada's journey as a Peruvian shaman's apprentice and how he came to teach these principles to the world. Take a look at the further reading list at the back of the book and visit don Oscar's website Heart Of The Healer.
