Synopsis:

This poetic, evocative book offers the meditations of an Anasazi tribesman at odds with his family and community. As he walks through the desert, he discovers the seven paths of the Anasazi way—each one based on a naturally occurring element in nature—that show him the roots of his conflict and the path towards reconciliation.

Native American traditions consistently focus on nature's own wisdom as superior to that of human kind since nature has witnessed all aspects of human growth and setbacks. The idea presented here is that for maladies of both body and spirit, the ancient Anasazi pointed man towards seven paths found upon Mother Earth—seven elements among nature that combine to heal human hearts.

Synopsis:

Too many people today have taken the wrong path. They walk alone, seeking peace and fulfillment in isolation. Countless well-meaning self-help books preach this gospel, as the name “self-help” implies. But this approach will take us only so far. Ultimately, it is in communion with our fellow beings and the natural world that we are made whole. We need to leave the path of Me and follow the path of We.

This poetic and evocative book, drawing on the personal experiences of Good Buffalo Eagle, presents the meditations of an ancient Anasazi tribesman who rejects his family and community and walks off into the desert. During his journey, he discovers the seven paths of the Anasazi way, each path teaching a lesson symbolized by an element of the natural world: light, wind, water, stone, plants, animals, and finally the unity of all beings with the Creator, the path of We. By walking these paths, he discovers the roots of his conflict and the way toward reconciliation.

For years, this book has been privately distributed by the Anasazi Foundation, an award-winning nonprofit organization whose work with troubled youth in a wilderness setting has been extraordinarily effective. But there is benefit here for all. The Seven Paths gives access to a source of wisdom and renewal familiar to native people but lost to the rest of us. As Good Buffalo Eagle writes in the foreword, this book “presents what might be described as a course in healing—seven elements among nature that combine to heal human hearts.”

Synopsis:

Discover the Healing Power of the Wilderness

People have moved away from Mother Earth, bringing heartache, pain, and other maladies of the modern age. The “self-help” movement claims to offer peace and fulfillment to individuals, but this solitary approach takes us only so far. Ultimately, it is in communion with our fellow beings and the natural world that we are made whole. We need to leave the path of Me and follow the path of We.

This poetic, evocative story presents the meditations of an ancient Anasazi tribesman who rejects his family and sets off on a journey through the desert. He walks seven paths, each teaching a lesson symbolized by an element of the natural world: light, wind, water, stone, plants, animals, and, finally, the unity of all beings with the Creator. The Seven Paths reveals a source of wisdom, restoration, and renewal familiar to native people but lost to the rest of us, seven elements among nature that combine to mend human hearts.

The Seven Paths, Anasazi Foundation, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2013, $14.95
Many of us have experienced being cut off from family, friends and community, and many of us have experienced the feeling of being healed by time in nature. This short yet powerful book, written in poetic stanza form, follows the journey of a young man that flees his people in anger, only to find himself at first confronted and then healed by the seven paths in nature that eventually lead him back home. Each path, such as wind or stone, presents the choice to either walk backward into negative emotions or to practice forward walking to soothe anger, heal emotional wounds, and find the way from “I” to “we.” Drawn from the experiences and meditations of Good Buffalo Eagle, cofounder of the Anasazi Foundation, the lessons of ancient Anasazi tribesman outlined in the book teach how to be in harmony with all of creation.
