From the Back Cover
AROUND THE YEAR WITH ONE OF TODAY'S MOST BELOVED NATIVE AMERICAN TEACHERS
The true spirit of Native American ways of knowing shines through in these heartfelt meditations, poems, and stories. In 364 daily offerings organized according to the cycles of the moon, Jamie Sams offers stirring and poetic insights into the spirituality of the earth, connecting with our communities, and our own soul journeys.
Based on Native American creeds and legends, these meditations cut to the heart with their honesty, beauty, and authenticity. Sams teaches such grounded lessons as how to face an unknown future with confidence and conviction, how to rediscover the joy of curiosity, and how to develop a true intimacy with nature.
All those who have come to cherish the warmth and wisdom of Jamie Sam's spirit-filled voice – as well as those meeting her here for the first time – will find in her teachings a generous, challenging, and always consoling source of daily inspiration.
Jamie Sams is the author of 'Medicine Cards' with David Carson, 'The Sacred Path Cards, The Sacred Path Workbook, Other Council Fires Were Here Before Ours' with Twylah Nitsch, and 'The Thirteen Original Clan Mothers.'See all Product Description

It provides daily meditations based on a 28 day moon cycle times 13 months to equal meditations for a 364 day calendar year. The titles of some of the meditations are: "Immutable Laws", "Blue Moon", Keepers of the Earth", "Sacred Point of View", "Infinite Creations", "Heartstrings, the Threads of Life", and "Serenity" to name a few ... The meditations are based on Native American beliefs and legends and are tempered with real life experiences.
Interspersed are beautiful poems which reveal deep spiritual insights which can also serve as positive affirmations. This book is a gem. It can be a healing force for anyone with an open heart. It is highly recommended.
"Nothing is impossible when we are dealing with human potential. We can hear the heartbeat if wholeness, never knowing what it is that leads us toward our desired goals, we can simply be doing what feels right to us, and we will be using the heartbeat of wholeness as our natural rhythm."
"We have been taught by the technical society that we live in that most things are complex. If we believe this it becomes true. It may be time for all of us to use the hearing that exists without sound. When we trust the soundless feelings, we can hear the wholeness that leads us to personal happiness."
Something a little Rumi about this, wouldn't you say?
