Jamie Sams is of Seneca, Cherokee and French descent. For the past 18 years, the co-author of The Medicine Cards has been developing an ancient feminine wisdom system passed on to her by two Kiowa Grandmothers. The 13 Original Clan Mothers is the result of her labors. Here she shares the stories, totems, and talents which come with each cycle of the moon. This poetic and soul-stirring volume probes the multidimensional aspects of feminine transformation.
The ancient teachings of the sisterhood encourage a respect for all relations, all worlds, and all mysteries. Women are challenged to seek the truth through dreams, impressions, prophecy. They must be good listeners and mothers of creativity. They are the guardians of the needs of the next seven generations. That means they must seek justice, self-determination, and balance right now.
In Native American tradition, a woman comes into her full spiritual powers around the age of 52. Those who want to bring to life the Looks Far Woman, the Walks Tall Woman, the Setting Sun Woman, and other interior aspects will be enlightened and emboldened by this extraordinary book.
