Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Australian aboriginal people have lived in harmony with the earth forperhaps as long as 100,000 years, in their words, since the First Day.In this absorbing work, Lawlor explores the essence of their culture asa source of and guide to transforming our own world view. While not romanticizingthe past or suggesting a return to the life of the hunter/gatherer, Voicesof the First Dayenables us to enter into the mentality of the oldestcontinuous culture on earth and gain insight into our own relationshipwith the earth and to each other.

This book offers an opportunity to suspend our values, prejudices, andEurocentrism and step into the Dreaming to discover:

A culture whose antiquity predates even the controversial civilizationsof Atlantis and Mu.

Initiatic and ritual practices that reveal the origins of esoteric,yogic, magical, and shamanic traditions of ancient and modern times.

A culture that rejected agriculture, architecture, the subjugation ofanimals, writing, and clothing.

A people that valued kin, community, and the law of the Dreamtime astheir greatest possessions.

A people that did not see themselves as greater or lesser than the earthor its plants and animals.

Languages whose richness of structure and vocabulary open new worldsof perception and comprehension.

Illustrated with more than 100 extraordinary photographs, bark paintings,line drawings and engravings from the early 20th century, never beforepublished.andnbsp;

Synopsis:
