Winds of Spirit : Ancient Wisdom Tools for Navigating Relationships, Health, and the Divine
In this book, you'll explore the rich mythology and cultural significance of wind, and discover a powerful system to utilize the subtle, healing energies in your life. Winds of Spirit will teach you how to connect with your true inner self, use your body as a compass, and receive life-changing messages from nature.
Based on an ancient sacred technique used by farmers, shamans and sailors, this system will show you how to navigate your personal path, providing insight into how to manage the wind patterns and shifting conditions affecting you. You will also learn how to invoke wind deities-gods and goddesses from around the world-and the cardinal winds from the four quadrants of the sky, each of which relate to the inner landscape of your life: mind, emotions, body, and spirit.
By working with the omnipresent winds in your life, you can restore harmony and balance, heal the body, and inspire creativity.
Experiential practices include wind breath, wind bath, wind knots, and more!

"Renee Baribeau has written a must-read primer for anyone considering their own spiritual evolution. I was riveted by the depth of her myths, legends, and sacred stories. Her work is not only a scholarly treatise on the resilience of the human spirit, but a deeply evocative narrative that bore her vulnerability with a sense of power and dignity. Her use of ancient storytelling had me sitting on the edge of my seat. The reader is served by her eloquence, imagination, and authentic truth telling. For some readers, the entire book will lead to an inner awakening and a revelation of all that is holy."
