Near Lake Eire in the 17 century, Tahni weds Chief Takoda in a glorious meadow that exactly matches the beautiful meadow of her night dreams. She lives a life of happiness until Takoda does not return. Tahni’s breaking heart leaves her vulnerable to the medicine man, Chaytan, who uses his powers to connect his life with hers, beyond time.
In London England in the 1890’s Mary stands wretched in a corner of the asylum rocking an invisible baby, yearning to get to the meadow she sees just beyond this world. A single visitor claims her, taking her from the institution. Who ishe? Can she truly heal from her heartache, betrayal and loss?
Contemporary middle-aged Diana weaves the tale of her life, including the rape she endured as a young girl, the madness that followed and her trail of meditation and travel that led to healing. Her listener, the mysterious, attractive Jake awakens feelings she had thought she’d never have again. Can she trust her heart and her life to his hands?
Three women, their lives bound by a single, horrifying event, replay madness, betrayal, loss and brutality until one of them finds a way to clear them all from the karmic suffering of The Stain.
Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind
Want to know more about how your brain works? Want to learn to work with your mind, instead of against it? Ever think about those images from dreams, from when you read a really good book or just from daydreaming? Ever wonder what those images mean?
GET THIS BOOK! Here the seams between our experience of mental visualizations (we use Tibetan icon Medicine Buddha as our example) and what the latest in Neuroscience has to say about images, join in easy to read, simple language.
Excerpt from the book:
“Whenever we speak, act, or even think, untold numbers of dendrites light up, stoking an electrical charge that runs along a neuron and since neurons like to chat with their neighbors, other neurons join in. These others are especially encouraged to join whenever the same action, the same speech, the same thought occurs.”
