In Geronimo's Footsteps
Author: Corine Sombrun, Harlyn Geronimo
The name Geronimo came to Corine Sombrun insistently in a trance during her apprenticeship to a Mongolian shaman. That message and the need to understand its meaning brought her to the home of the legendary Apache leader's great-grandson, Harlyn Geronimo, himself a medicine man on the Mescalero Apache reservation in New Mexico. Together, the two of them—the French seeker and the Native American healer—would make a pilgrimage that retraced Geronimo's life while following the course of the Gila River to the place of his birth, at its source. Told in the alternating voices of its authors, In Geronimo's Footsteps is the record of that journey. At its core is an account of Geronimo's life, from his earliest days in a Chiricahua Apache family and his path as a warrior and chief to his surrender and the years spent in exile until his death, at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Recounted by his great-grandson, his story is steeped in family history and Apache lore to create a portrait of a leader intent on defending his people and their land and traditions—a mission that Harlyn continues, even as he campaigns to recover his ancestor's bones from the U.S. government. Completing Corine's circle, the book also explores the links, genetic and possibly cultural, between the Apache and the people of Mongolia.
Facing a World in Crisis
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
J. Krishnamurti, one of the most beloved and renowned religious teachers of the twentieth century, often taught his students that they must look at the state of the world, with all its violence and conflict, if they are ever to understand themselves. To turn away from world events was for him not to be alive to what life has to teach. Facing a World in Crisis presents a selection of talks that Krishnamurti gave on how to live in and respond to troubling and uncertain times. His message of personal responsibility and the importance of connecting with the broader world is presented in a nonsectarian and nonpolitical way. Direct and ultimately life-affirming, Facing a World in Crisis will resonate with readers today who are looking for a new way to understand and find hope in challenging times.
« Psychologue, je travaille à l’hôpital, dans un service de management de la douleur. Il y a cinq ans, j’ai été initiée à la médecine traditionnelle aztèque, qui a transformé ma vie et ma pratique de thérapeute. Depuis, je voyage dans le monde des Esprits, rentre dans les arbres, converse avec les orages et visite l’étoile Sirius – rien que ça !Vous me trouverez sans doute un peu “perchée”, je le conçois volontiers. Mais parfois, en quelques séances chamaniques, se résolvent des problèmes que la psychothérapie, même après plusieurs années, ne parvient pas toujours à dénouer. Pour aider mes patients à guérir, j’ai essayé de comprendre comment exploiter cette énergie inconnue que je capte plus ou moins malgré moi.Les scientifiques, qui autrefois ricanaient des transes, étudient désormais ce qui se passe dans le cerveau lorsqu’elles se produisent. Je vous raconte les miennes, drôles ou émouvantes, et vous invite à suivre le fil, du Mexique au Népal, pour plonger vous aussi dans le monde des Esprits. » Psychologue exerçant en Angleterre à l’hôpital et à son compte, Claire Marie signe ici son premier ouvrage.
Au Gré Du Ciel...
Publisher: Fernand Lanore
Cet ouvrage relate la démarche intérieure d'un être à l'écoute de sa voix intérieure et en quête du sens, confronté, parfois, à l'intervention inopinée de l'au-delà. Il s'agit d'un témoignage de vie particulier. En tant que tel, ce récit n'a pas la prétention d'apporter des réponses mais il peut susciter des interrogations, provoquer une réflexion, ouvrir un chemin... Il peut aussi être source d'espoir, élargir l'horizon, dévoiler une part d'inconnu... La narration au présent nous plonge, en direct, dans l'univers de l'auteure et permet de suivre, pas à pas, son avancée spirituelle et l'enseignement reçu. Les expériences rapportées ici révèlent l'implication, la protection, le soutien, le réconfort, la compassion et l'amour dont nous gratifient les êtres qui nous accompagnent. Ce vécu démontre que le voile qui nous sépare de l'invisible est ténu.

The Land Within
Author: Alexandre Surrallés, Pedro García Hierro
By describing the fabric of relationships indigenous peoples weave with their environment, The Land Within attempts to define a more precise notion of indigenous territoriality. A large part of the work of titling the South American indigenous territories may now be completed but this book aims to demonstrate that, in addition to management, these territories involve many other complex aspects that must not be overlooked if the risk of losing these areas to settlers or extraction companies is to be avoided. Alexandre Surralls holds a doctorate in anthropology from the School for Higher Studies in Social Sciences and is a researcher on the staff of the National Centre for Scientific Research. Pedro Garca Hierro is a lawyer from Madrid Complutense University and the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru. He has worked with various indigenous organizations, on issues related to the identification and development of collective rights and the promotion of intercultural democratic reforms.

Beyond Turk and Hindu
Author: David Gilmartin, Bruce B. Lawrence
Publisher: Orange Groove Books
There has long been a need for a scholarly English edition of the great 13th century historical epic, The Secret History of the Mongols, the only surviving Mongol source about the empire. The book is mainly about the life and the career of Chinggis Khan, his ancestors and his rise to power. Chinggis Khan was not only a military genius, but also a great statesman and diplomat. Through a combination of armed force and diplomacy, he managed to merge the complex system of alliances which existed between diverse tribes into a powerful confederacy that swept across most of Eurasia, starting in 1219. Urgunge Onon's fresh translation brings out the excitement of this epic with its wide-ranging commentaries on military and social conditions, religion and philosophy, while remaining faithful to the original text. This fully annotated edition is prefaced by a 36 page introduction setting the work in its cultural and historical context.
