The pipe as spirit, object, & art.
Breath of the invisible traces the dramatic revival of the Plains Ceremonial pipe as a tool of self-realization and unity.
But there is much more to this story. In it's fullness it is actually a broad overview of the spiritual heritage of the American Indian, incorporating chapters on The Sacred Sweat; A Hopi Indian's Healing Power, and The Odyssey of the Medicine Wheel (How to make one; how to use one and why).
Comfortably, effortlessly, the author blends these aspects of Indian life into a cohesive, meaningful, spiritual culture. He includes many illuminating human interest anecdotes as he brings to light the essential humane-ness of the American Indian based on a conviction that all life is sacred and interdependent; that there is nothing whatsoever that is not alive. Here then is the Native American as a faithful caretaker of the sacred things in life.
