Tribe conjures primordial visions and bids us to travel beyond the boundaries of what we can see with our eyes.
Tribes are everywhere we look and everywhere we go. They’re drawn together through common need and mutual interest, for preservation and protection. They’re bound to each other by love and blood, by fear and respect. At one time or another, tribes have formed on every continent of our world. They are our clans, our gangs, our clubs and fraternities, our corporations and congresses, our militaries and our families. They are tribe and each tribe has its own reasons for staying together.
In Marcus F Griffin's new book, Tribe, Tending the Fires of the Great Spirit Within, readers will be taken on an amazing journey into dreams and visions, through the spirit and the mind along a path that leads us into the shamanic otherworld and even back through time to the beginnings of human spirituality. Readers will seek the sacred spark of the Great Spirit itself. They will be both entertained and challenged as they seek the light of spirituality within themselves and the light of the great tribe known as humanity.
Tribe is really two overlapping books. For both, the word â€˜tribeâ€™ in the text â€œrefers to any group of people who come together for any reason, anywhere, at any timeâ€ and also â€œthe whole of humanity as a single collective: The very spirit of tribalism itself.â€ This book will appeal especially to those new to the process of shamanic journeying. By the conclusion the reader will understand that â€œWe are not alone. We are collectively a spiritual being with a radiant spirit â€¦ We are tribe.â€ ~ Richard D. Wright Tranquil Things, New Age Retailer (online)
There's an amazing and well-written story that runs throughout the book linking the practices that are taught. The techniques taught are different and distinct. Reading Tribe requires dedication. It's a book that would suit someone already familiar with shamanic travelling and practices, or for someone who simply wants to open up another area of their spirituality.~ Sarah Connor, Eternal Spirit
The first thing that strikes the reader about this book is the mixture of instructional text and the fictional story of Kasheena, a young girl who is to become shaman for her tribe. I must confess that I have only a passing interest in shamanism yet I found this book to be an interesting read.
As the majority of the book is given over to the tale of Kasheena (and Daniel) it is very easy to read, the instructional text is easy to understand but quite basic. I enjoyed reading the book and some of the lessons to be learned are contained within the story- which is spread throughout the book.
An enjoyable read but perhaps more as a short novel for those who have any knowledge of shamanism.
In his book, Tribe: Tending the Fires of the Great Spirit Within, Marcus F Griffin takes us on a journey through the pathways of our lives. Along the way, he ably explores our connection with Spirit and each other, using a unique approach which will give his readers new tools and a fresh outlook. A genuinely useful and intelligent book. ~ Deborah Blake, author of Everyday Witch A to Z and The Goddess is in the Details
Marcus F Griffin has created a wonderful, practical, and insightful guide on shamanism, accessible to beginners and seasoned practitioners, and for those who hope to push themselves to the furthest limits of their spirituality and connectivity. ~ Edain McCoy, author of The Healing Power of Faery and Astral Projection for Beginners
