Native Wisdom for White Minds: Daily Reflections Inspired by the Native Peoples of the World is a provocative book designed for the general reader who is interested in understanding another culture's worldview. Author Anne Wilson Shaef, Ph.D., is a writer, lecturer, organizational consultant, and workshop facilitator. The author shares the richness poured out to her by Native Americans, Aborigines, Africans, Maoris, and others. In the words of Native Peoples themselves, readers come to understand Native ideas about the earth, spirituality, family, work, loneliness, and change. For in every area of our lives we have the capacity to transcend our understandings by listening with open hearts and open minds to other voices, other perceptions, other cultures.
