The second edition of this book highlights additional interviews with unique indigenous elders and healers, along with resources and suggestions for tapping into the many branches and roots for a rich, sustainable present and a richer future. Our ancestors are the building blocks of who we are in our character, our interests, talents, and outlook on life very often, whether we know them or not. The family lineage can have a far-reaching influence that traces back several generations and most people have a combination of ancestries inside that enrich their heritage even more. There are also collective roots that are even deeper that shape patterns of the entire culture. They have left us a wealth of invaluable beauty, blessed sacred sites, and reverent traditions that preserve the spirit of the land, of the elements, and of our hearts. We often retreat to these places for rest and rejuvenation, as they have not lost their mystery or majesty. As we move through our fast-paced lives fashioning and manifesting our passions and visions, taking a moment to tune in to those roots can open up a treasure chest of hidden gems that reveal abundant riches you may have quietly intuited within you. As you open the chest and look inside, those riches will arise in you and fill out your being and your life in ways that fit so well you cannot be surprised, but can easily be amazed. The elders, shaman, and medicine people being interviewed in this text represent a variety of cultures from around the world that reveal the underlying similarities in their mystical understanding and cultural traditions. Their mysteries are scientifically based and have been developed over millennia by our ancestors in their connection with Nature, with community, and with the Great Spirit. Living in harmony with those scientific and mystical revelations enabled those cultures to build foundations of health that we are still trying to catch up to today. Rapid technological advances, although still lagging behind the knowledge of the ancients, have cost modern society its health and balance. The shift to a mechanistic, linear view has been catastrophic and driven society to a precipice of immeasurable costs in the resulting imbalances on every front. The return to balance is within our sight. The insights provided by the interviewees will resonate with that which has remained in our DNA. Many traditional practices are still in place and the elders have given permission to share the wisdom in order to support the return of healthy relationships with our environment, our communities, and with what creates health and well-being. "Remember the Wisdom that Progress Forgot is an important book for our times...a book that illumines the treasure of knowledge that has been passed on through the wisdom keepers of Native tribes and cultures worldwide. A cohesive collection of indigenous perspectives, written through intimate and warmly spoken dialogue." "Suresha Hill has compiled a classic book of interviews with meaningful insights into our inter-relatedness with all of life and our personal and collective responsibility to honor and heal the Earth." E. Zarum "At a time of planetary crisis, 'Remember the Wisdom that Progress Forgot' illuminates the diverse pathways for wise decisions that can build a sustainable, peaceful life for all of us - now, and for future generations. What a rare and humbling privilege to be given the ageless wisdom of luminous elders to guide us." A. Mattison
