Earth Walks for Body and Spirit contains 45 walking exercises based on techniques that have been developed from the author's work with traditional indigenous practices of the Huichol Indians of western Mexico. Each grouping of exercises focuses on a different aspect of transformation: attention and awareness; group connection; connection to the Sun, Water, Wind, and Fire; connection to the energies of animals, trees, and places of power; connection to the energy of offering; and, finally, the seeking and finding of a vision. This book teaches us how to use an easy, accessible form of movement, the surroundings of the natural world, and the magic of attention to open our hearts to a rediscovery of our sacred relationships with each other and the Earth.
