Sacred Ground


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Sacred Ground: Path to Recovery reveals the secrets of self-healing and managing chronic pain. Grand Master Yau explains that emotional and physical rejuvenation takes only minutes a day. The practices cultivate a calm mind and nervous system and develop internal strength, vitality, and grounded ease. William C. Gough, co-founder of The Foundation of Mind Being Research says it this way: "Grand Master Greg Yau has developed a methodology for promoting health and body strength based upon the ancient techniques that give foundation to Shaolin Gong Fu. It uses the physical body as the foundation for connecting to the Universal Energy of the Absolute. This process for strengthening the body can provide a pathway for a person to reach enlightenment and represents the spiritual aspects of these ancient practices. The process involves working with not only the anatomy of the physical body, but with one's mind and energy body - i.e. the subtle energy flows of the acupuncture and meridian systems."

Sacred Ground


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The longer the author worked at St. Joseph's Indian School, the more he felt that he could do something in partnership with the Lakota children and staff to remedy the way in which the church had deprived the Lakota in the past of their own culture. As he was walking along and thinking about the Last Supper at which Jesus was telling the apostles: "Do this in memory of me." He was telling them to remember what He was going to suffer on behalf of all people throughout history and to remember this in all times and places--all cultures. Just then something made him look up to the sky and above him circling around were twelve eagles. Standing in amazement, and knowing that he must not hesitate because of fear or criticism to welcome the Lakota culture into the religious instructions and worship services at the school. The "Sacred Ground" is a sensitive collation of Lakota culture and spirituality with that of the Holy Bible. Dignity and meaning is given to the so often misunderstood customs and practices of the Indian people. The book explains how the religious beliefs of the Sioux and Christian faith go hand in hand with one another.

Claiming Sacred Ground


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Claiming Sacred Ground Pilgrims and Politics at Glastonbury and Sedona Adrian J. Ivakhiv A study of people and politics at two New Age spiritual sites. In this richly textured account, Adrian Ivakhiv focuses on the activities of pilgrim-migrants to Glastonbury, England and Sedona, Arizona. He discusses their efforts to encounter and experience the spirit or energy of the land and to mark out its significance by investing it with sacred meanings. Their endeavors are presented against a broad canvas of cultural and environmental struggles associated with the incorporation of such geographically marginal places into an expanding global cultural economy. Ivakhiv sees these contested and "heterotopic" landscapes as the nexus of a complex web of interestes and longings: from millennial anxieties and nostalgic re-imaginings of history and prehistory; to real-estate power grabs; contending religious visions; and the free play of ideas from science, pseudo-science, and popular culture. Looming over all this is the nonhuman life of these landscapes, an"otherness" that alternately reveals and conceals itself behind a pagenant of beliefs, images, and place-myths. A significant contribution to scholarship on alternative spirituality, sacred space, and the politics of natural landscapes, Claiming Sacred Ground will interest scholars and students of environmental and cultural studies, and the sociology of religious movements and pilgrimage. Non-specialist readers will be stimulated by the cultural, ecological, and spiritual dimensions of extraordinary natural landscapes. Adrian Ivakhiv teaches in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University in Toronto, and is President of the Environmental Studies Association of Canada.

New Roots In America S Sacred Ground


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In this compelling look at second-generation Indian Americans, Khyati Y. Joshi draws on case studies and interviews with forty-one second-generation Indian Americans, analyzing their experiences involving religion, race, and ethnicity from elementary school to adulthood. As she maps the crossroads they encounter as they navigate between their homes and the wider American milieu, Joshi shows how their identities have developed differently from their parents' and their non-Indian peers' and how religion often exerted a dramatic effect. The experiences of Joshi's research participants reveal how race and religion interact, intersect, and affect each other in a society where Christianity and whiteness are the norm. Joshi shows how religion is racialized for Indian Americans and offers important insights in the wake of 9/11 and the backlash against Americans who look Middle Eastern and South Asian. Through her candid insights into the internal conflicts contemporary Indian Americans face and the religious and racial discrimination they encounter, Joshi provides a timely window into the ways that race, religion, and ethnicity interact in day-to-day life.
