Children toys and books for peace

 KidsEQ books
This was a wonderful site with brilliant books for children helping them understand and deal with all their emotions to help to create a future generation of peaceful and intelligent human beings. However, I lost contact with the person who started this business, but found a place on Amazon covering this genre of children's books. These books can help bring in meaningful skills in negotiating peace among ourselves and globally. By better understanding how to work with our own emotions from childhood on, we create a generation of people who have greater empathy for others and help to create a more peaceful planet.

Shamanic Healing, Night Chase - Kam Lau - Eagle Medicine
Kam Lau also known as Night Chase is a dear friend I met in 1994 when he and David Carson did Shamanic ceremonies in Maui and stayed in my home. He has always held a special light in my heart as a Shaman of great heart and integrity. One of the most loving person that I have ever met in this life time. He has been a recognized teacher of the Spiritual traditions of the Lakota and a Sun Dance Chief who has done the Sun Dance for over 20 years. He is a direct lineage of a long line of Lakota Chief's and Medicine Men and a Taoist Priest and he has traveled the World bringing his teachings. 

He did a spirit dance channeled from the old ghost dance to bring peace to the world and takes people on Vision Quest, Sweat Lodge Ceremonies, Story telling and Taught Chi Gong and Tai Chi. He worked with David Carson who wrote the Medicine Cards Book with Jamie Sams. Earlier this year when I was checking my links and discovered this one was not working I learned he had passed away on October 30th in 2013, It seems the last time we spoke may have been that year. I was so sad to learn of his passing but know he is soaring high with Great Spirit and found a YouTube Video of Eagles soaring to the sound.


David Carson is the co-author of Medicine Cards, The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals, the award winning book and card deck that helped establish the current study of animal power. Medicine Cards was published in 1988 and has never been out of print.  Over one million copies of Medicine Cards have sold internationally. David Carson was raised in Oklahoma, and learned animal ways and animal clans from his mother Opal, and his aunts, Agnes, Ruby, Phoebe, all members of the Choctaw tribe of Oklahoma.  

These Native lessons informed his stories and knowledge of animals in Medicine Cards.  David moved to Paris in 1965 to steep in the literary influences of Hemingway and The Paris Review. He lived and wrote in Paris before moving to Montana to live on the Cheyenne and Crow reservations. While in Montana David studied with many legendary tribal elders such as Tom Yellowtail, John Stands In Timber, and Josie Limpy. From Montana David moved to Iowa City to study at the Writer’s Workshop. For more on Shamanic Healing, Books and  Music go to the Medicine Cards Link above.

Walter Semkiw  Return of the Revolutionaries
Walter Semkiw, M.D. asks a startling question in this provocative book: What if key figures in the American Revolution were back with us today, reincarnated in new bodies and personalities, and just as interested in supporting social change and spiritual awakening? Semkiw says it's more than a question. It's a fact. Drawing on the cases of dozens of prominent and influential American cultural and literary figures today, Dr. Semkiw establishes their Revolutionary times identity. Continuities in facial appearance, personal interests, and even writing style are giveaways to linking a present-day figure with someone from the Revolutionary era, he says. For a unique view of History and greater hope for our future, we suggest you read his book on the Return of the Revolutionaries. He also includes a link on his site to my friend Kevin Ryerson who is quite an amazing Trance Channel Medium

The points would become so heated you felt your fingers were on fire and the electrical energy that flowed very powerfully. Often the results produced were instantaneous healings, as well as past memory and past life recall. He also helped me with my peace project that I was working on at the time with his wife Barbara Ray and was dedicated to healing the Earth and making a difference.
