When American sociologist and wellness expert Tanya Pergola first visited Tanzania and Maasailand, she became startlingly aware that she was in a place and with people who could teach her something profound. She sensed that lodged within the colorful and beautiful rituals and ceremonies of the indigenous Maasai people were gems of wisdom that could be harvested and shared as antidotes for our increasingly complex, stressful, and often enigmatic modern lives.
Dr. Pergola undertook a 10-year apprenticeship with Maasai traditional healers, led by her guide Lekoko Ole Sululu, in exchange for implementing sustainable development projects in Tanzania. In Time Is Cows she shares the mind-body-spirit medicine of the Maasai, the proud pastoral people of East Africa.
Thanks for your journey and inviting us along with such respect for all cultures involved.
Let’s ignore the fact that this is a boring and worthless work (on what is an otherwise fascinating and important topic & culture). It’s harder to ignore the ridiculous alternative “medicine” claptrap and self-aggrandizing ignorance.
I award it zero points and may God have mercy on the author’s soul.
