Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook, 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. This audiobook "presents what might be described as a course in healing—seven elements among nature that combine to heal human hearts."

    "Happily Shocked."

    I saw this book advertised on Facebook. Sounded pretty good so I bought it on Audio. This book supersedes my expectations five fold. I highly recommend purchasing it.

    "Deeply inspirational!"

    Seven Paths is deeply reflective of who we are. It inspires one to reflect on one's inner feelings and to balance what we feel about others in context with how we feel within one's self.

    It inspires one to strive to be a better person.

    Story
    "Falls short of Wisdom..."

    At one level a casting problem I think. To my 74 year old ears the reader sounds too young to be addressing any but teenagers by "my young friend". At another level, there is far too much "I" and ego thrown about and he himself too much the hero of a fiction ( which of course it is - which further erodes his authenticity. Ego is a stone he stumbles over too often and though he cites his various challenges and lessons, and admonishes us to learn thereby.... What I expected was far deeper and more applicable somehow.
    It is easy to admonish one to speak in animals language, but most never see a mountain lion, badger or anything wild. True wisdom is in sharing how as much as what. I wish he had been less heroic and more plausible and instructive and shared the "How you can feel the spirit in a stone, appreciate the miracle of wind or water... "Talk" with a dog or cat or fish or potted plant. It can, after all be both dome and taught.
    A great story line that could have focused more on instruction that impression.

    "Something to learn from . It has wisdom."

    Sometimes we all walk backwards, so we need a gentle rimender. This is one of this.
