A young adult /adult fiction that is told from a young girls perspective and imagination that takes us away on an unforgettable journey. It weaves two stories, one of a family's experience with keeping a loved one in their home while moving through the dying process with the help of Hospice. It is also a story of a Grandmother and her grand-daughters journey into another world where birds are their twin souls who journey with them throughout life in so many subtle ways. I am really excited about this story and feel it came from my heart with the hope it can find a place of healing for anyone going through the loss of a loved one. However, it focuses on a child's interpretation that brings an element of fantasy and adventure into their journey into life's final months. It is also written as a resource to how Hospice Care can help a whole new way of experiencing the dying and letting go process of our beloveds with dignity. It also gives a great deal of honor to birds with both a scientific as well as symbolic information about these particular characters, who as I said before are twin souls, our reflections. The book has been a collaborative effort by my niece, who has beautifully illustrated the story, my mothers own enthusiasm and her great desire that we create this story, and my burning desire to put this story to page. Life and Death is our whole journey and this book intends to express the joy and the sorrow that weave together to make our lives worthy of celebration from start to finish.

This spiritual guide explains that nature holds the answer to all of life's mysteries, and that birds in particular can impart universal principles and divine spiritual guidance. Each bird brings its own specific message—a heron brings a message of solitude; a falcon, loyalty; a lark, healing; and a duck, faith—and with this interpretive manual readers can study how to recognize birds' personal messages and the importance of following their wisdom. A comprehensive list of the messages and archetypes that the most common birds stand for, as well as a Quick Reference Guide to specific birds' messages serve both as practical tools for understanding and working with the knowledge birds can provide as messengers of the divine.

The medieval view of the natural world can best be understood within its religious context. According to medieval thought, nature was a book in which God revealed himself and his message to the world. Plants and animals in particular were frequently given symbolic meanings or valued for their healing properties. Illustrated with works taken from three world-famous medieval manuscripts, The Wisdom of Nature focuses on thirty-five exquisitely executed sheets which depict a wide range of subjects. These include herbs and plants, animals and birds, nature and the seasons, meat and water, activities to stimulate the body or brain such as riding or conversing, and religious topics such as the Creation. In double-page spreads, this volume explains the origin of each manuscript illustration, looks into its symbolic meanings, listing the healing powers ascribed to it in the medieval world as well as medical properties still valued by modern science. An introductory essay delves into the essential characteristics of medieval thought. The illustrations are reproduced from the Viennese Tacuinum in the Austrian National Library in Vienna, a manuscript listing the positive and negative effects of foodstuffs on the human body; the Bern Physiologus from the Burgerbibliothek in Bern, which describes animals as sources of medicinal cures; and the Oxford Bestiary from the Bodleian Library in Oxford, a collection of animal stories of a religious or moralizing nature.

Birds have more to offer us than beautiful, colorful feather suits and merry chants. They can also support us with their own special healing powers, in times we can really use it. Each bird has its unique eloquence. Everyone knows for instance the owl, expressing wisdom and knowledge, or the stork, associated with birth, or the mythical phoenix, arising from its ashes. Jane Toerien describes the characteristic energies of 55 birds and completes each description with a meditative affirmation. Joyce van Dobben brings the birds to life with the powerful drawings that adorn these cards.

Cedar Birds is a fictional work that ordains the beliefs of the coastal Carolina Indian through their worship of the spirits, their connection with and nurturing of all that lives. These beliefs and behaviors are compared with the brutal killing of the docile right whales by the white man and his destructive, selfish domination of and exploitation of the earth in general. For example, the whale is killed for nothing more than the melting down of the huge carcass to render oil to fuel their lanterns. But darkness always returns. Cedar Birds reveals its magic through the eyes and voice of the sensitive coastal boy Davey. He also appears as a changed man who, years later, returns to his coastal home town after the horrors and his losses in Vietnam. Killing of any kindwhether of whales or of other humansmakes him ponder the mystical wisdom and spiritualistic practices of the shaman. Davey eventually comes to understand that he is of the Coree shaman bloodline; his extraordinary senses and instincts were responsible for saving him in Vietnam. The mystical connection with the spirits also delivers him from his deadly drug addiction and gives him the power to save others. Davey visits the site of the old Indian village, Cwarioc. His senses have told him that the shaman has died. He comes to open the portal through which the shamans spirit is to be delivered to the ancients where he becomes one of the faces in the windinto the mystic. But will the spirit be delivered? Have we killed it all, or can the spirits bring the healing? Has the last whale died? Is this the beginning or the ending? Will the ending become the beginning?
