Fierce Medicine is a diamond filled with Brilliant reflections, sacred teachings and unforgettable experiences. Ana T. Forrest, Rockstar yogi, healer, and Medicine Woman, reads her story with Beauty and Eloquence. In her earlier career, she was a world class horse trainer. Her strategic perspective seemed to be a philosophy used in show jumping. When approaching a challenging obstacle, one proceeds in a manner known as "throw your heart over". With this work, she takes that leap and soars amongst supernovas.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is similar because both Ana and Steve are ahead of their time in their respective fields. They both "think different." Their challenges evolve into opportunities rather than obstacles. They reject what did not work and moved into new, uncharted waters for what did. Basically, they are both pioneers in their fields.
There are many scenes that resonate. Ana's time in India, which was a crucial turning point for her personally and professionally, explains the roots of her teaching philosophy.
Her work and relationship with horses was very informative as well. The connected nature of life and love and trust was very well delineated.
There are many poignant moments. How Ana got up each day and continued to learn, grow, and later to teach is inspiring and touching. I salute and admire her work and her lessons.
Listening to Ana's reading is a blessing. Breathe deeply as you drink it in. Listen in Beauty to the life and work of a leader and a living legend.
