BOOK EXCERPT:

Sacred Ground: Path to Recovery reveals the secrets of self-healing and managing chronic pain. Grand Master Yau explains that emotional and physical rejuvenation takes only minutes a day. The practices cultivate a calm mind and nervous system and develop internal strength, vitality, and grounded ease. William C. Gough, co-founder of The Foundation of Mind Being Research says it this way: "Grand Master Greg Yau has developed a methodology for promoting health and body strength based upon the ancient techniques that give foundation to Shaolin Gong Fu. It uses the physical body as the foundation for connecting to the Universal Energy of the Absolute. This process for strengthening the body can provide a pathway for a person to reach enlightenment and represents the spiritual aspects of these ancient practices. The process involves working with not only the anatomy of the physical body, but with one's mind and energy body - i.e. the subtle energy flows of the acupuncture and meridian systems."

BOOK EXCERPT:

The longer the author worked at St. Joseph's Indian School, the more he felt that he could do something in partnership with the Lakota children and staff to remedy the way in which the church had deprived the Lakota in the past of their own culture. As he was walking along and thinking about the Last Supper at which Jesus was telling the apostles: "Do this in memory of me." He was telling them to remember what He was going to suffer on behalf of all people throughout history and to remember this in all times and places--all cultures. Just then something made him look up to the sky and above him circling around were twelve eagles. Standing in amazement, and knowing that he must not hesitate because of fear or criticism to welcome the Lakota culture into the religious instructions and worship services at the school. The "Sacred Ground" is a sensitive collation of Lakota culture and spirituality with that of the Holy Bible. Dignity and meaning is given to the so often misunderstood customs and practices of the Indian people. The book explains how the religious beliefs of the Sioux and Christian faith go hand in hand with one another.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Interpreting Sacred Ground is a rhetorical analysis of Civil War battlefields and parks, and the ways various commemorative traditions—and their ideologies of race, reconciliation, emancipation, and masculinity—compete for dominance. The National Park Service (NPS) is known for its role in the preservation of public sites deemed to have historic, cultural, and natural significance. In Interpreting Sacred Ground, J. Christian Spielvogel studies the NPS’s secondary role as an interpreter or creator of meaning at such sites, specifically Gettysburg National Military Park, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, and Cold Harbor Visitor Center. Spielvogel studies in detail the museums, films, publications, tours, signage, and other media at these sites, and he studies and analyzes how they shape the meanings that visitors are invited to construct. Though the NPS began developing interpretive exhibits in the 1990s that highlighted slavery and emancipation as central facets to understanding the war, Spielvogel argues that the NPS in some instances preserves outmoded narratives of white reconciliation and heroic masculinity, obscuring the race-related causes and consequences of the war as well as the war’s savagery. The challenges the NPS faces in addressing these issues are many, from avoiding unbalanced criticism of either the Union or the Confederacy, to foregrounding race and violence as central issues, preserving clear and accurate renderingsof battlefield movements and strategies, and contending with the various public constituencies with their own interpretive stakes in the battle for public memory. Spielvogel concludes by arguing for the National Park Service’s crucial role as a critical voice in shaping twentieth-first-century Civil War public memory and highlights the issues the agency faces as it strives to maintain historical integrity while contending with antiquated renderings of the past.
