"By February 1945 the United States had been fighting World War II for more than three years. Soldiers were worn down from battle, and civilians were drained by sacrifice. But a photograph of Marines raising an American flag on Japanese soil gave a wearied nation a renewed sense of pride and hope. This powerful image of strength and determination became the most famous image of the war. It not only captured a moment of victory against a strong foe. It also represented the effort every member of the armed forces had made and offered Americans the promise of victory and an end to conflict."
This is a book written for practicing therapists, scholars, clergy, students, and those with a general interest in non-traditional healing and helping practices. It tells the story of Bradford Keeney, the first non-African to be inducted as a shaman in both the Kung Bushman and Zulu cultures. It offers lessons on the essence of making a difference in others' lives, not through the familiar, well-worn paths of traditional psychotherapy but through the work of spiritual healers and "doctors" of the oldest cultures on this planet. It is an integration of psychological, spiritual, kinesthetic, and anthropological methods into a biography of one of the most charismatic, creative clinicians working today, not just in traditional mental health settings but in the jungles of the Amazon, the deserts of Namibia and Botswana, and the most remote islands in the South Pacific.
In mid-ocean-the Pacific. Two ships within sight of one another, less than a league apart. Both sailing before the wind, running dead down it with full canvas spread-not side by side, but one in the wake of the other. Is it a chase? To all appearance, yes; a probability strengthened by the relative size and character of the vessels. One is a barque, polacca-masted, her masts raking back with the acute shark's-fin set supposed to be characteristic of piratical craft. The other is a ship, square-rigged and full sized; a row of real, not painted, ports, with a gun grinning out of each, proclaiming her a man-of-war. She is one-a frigate, as any seaman would say, after giving her a glance. And any landsman might name her nationality. The flag at her peak is one known all over the world: it is the ensign of England.
