This book gave me rather mixed impressions, mostly favorable and some otherwise.
First the good part: its about getting back to the Earth and living in a sustainable way. For someone who wants to do the same thing, I found the information most interesting : for example, making milk from cedar nuts, even making flour from the same. Also the authors ideas of how to a fence a property are most practical and ingenious. Throughout the book, there is the theme that a deep spirituality can be found by living close to the land.
Some insights the author raises are quite thought provoking. He argues that collective farms exist in the West as well as the East. Its well known that the private farms in Russia have only 3% of the total agricultural land, yet produce over 50% of the produce. However, in the West, its the large corporations that buy the small owners off and you end up with a factory farm, where the owners exploit the land and are not as close to it as the small owners. Ths collectivisation, both East and West, has led to humanity largely loosing their connection with Earth.
The book centres on a dialogue between a Russian wise woman who lives in the remote parts of Russia and the author.
There are also some good colour photos illustrating the fact that many Russians have taken these books to heart and are literally buying some land in Russia. Also there is now a party in Russia that is proposing that everyone should be able to have land for living in a sustainable way.
There is also quite an interesting part on education.
The book does feature shamanic journeys to other times and planets: I distrust this form of revelation as it beyond my experience to assess its validity.
There is sometimes an innocence and at times a naiveity about this book: mostly good.

We are creating our own realities whether we know it or not both at an individual and Mankind level. This book in the Ringing Cedar series creates a powerful image of the Universe and our place within the creative processes of life, unravelling ancient mysteries as well as giving daily practicalities.

When we all remember Who We Really Are and notice our part in creation each thought, word and deed becomes automatically aligned with Love.

This book really helps to reclaim the knowledge of how everything fits together in perfection...knowledge that has become obscured and forgotten over the ages.

If you wish to uncover your own innate power allow this book to take you on a journey of sharing knowledge and understanding.

Again a precious book in the Ringing Cedars series which shows us a vision of a beautiful and hopeful future which begins today as we make our peace with our relationships to others and to the environment and to ourselves.
Highly recommended, read the whole series! The books are uplifting and practical.

A wonderful book, and a must read. Anastasia is a unique person and has a lot of very sound advice. Some of the information in these books will blow your mind! This is book 4 in the Ringing Cedars of Russia series of 9 books. I would recommend starting with book 1 and working you way through all 9.

I found this book very refreshing, and is about creating new sustainable communities that are happening in Russia, and is quite like the sustainable living activities going on in the UK. I like the freshness of approach and the feeling of inspiration, as it covers teaching of children by inspiration and is essentially a spiritual book. Worth a read!
