THE MINDFUL TRAVELER
reviewed by Lauren Russel
Travel is one of my all-consuming passions. When one adventure ends, I am often restless until the next one presents itself and I can immerse myself in its new challenge. Reading about travel is perhaps my next favorite thing to do, so finding a book that is as useful and fun to read as The Mindful Traveler is a great blessing.
Mindful travel, according to Currie, is attention to state of mind, or what Buddha called "mindfulness." When travelers practice mindfulness, they are tuning in to possibilities that might never have occurred unless they were paying attention. It is a type of travel that is not unlike contemplation or pilgrimage, a kind of travel that helps transcend the ordinary and lift it to the height of mystical experience. I agree wholeheartedly with Curries assessment that the best trips are often those that deepen our connections with who we are and give us an opportunity to learn, grow, and become more self-aware. My own trips have evolved over the years from simple escapes that take me away from my life to journeys that are expressions of what my life is becoming.
STONE PEOPLE MEDICINE
reviewed by Steve McCardell
Stone People Medicine is one among so many divination sets available today. Yet among the many, it has some very different characteristics that I think will be a draw for some who both have and have not gotten into other kinds of divination.
To begin, these cards do not claim any ancient heritage, despite the Native American motif. Manny Twofeathers was drawn to rocks all his life, and over time, life circumstances and a series of dreams helped him to begin painting Stone People. At first, these were indeed painted stones; but now, to bring them into more peoples lives, they are presented as pictures of painted stones on cards.
