Letters to the River by Sparrow Hart
A Guide to a Dream Worth Living ~ Release date October 1
Letters to the River places the struggles and crises we currently face - personal, political, moral, ecological and spiritual - within the context of a mythic and heroic journey. In doing so, it forms a bridge between the left side and the right - the practical, daily life we can neither ignore or avoid, and the magical, shimmering world reported by sages and shamans for millennia.
About the Author: Sparrow Hart has apprenticed himself to nature and the wild for over forty years, exploring inner and outer landscapes beyond the unexamined limits of consensual reality. Seeking something deep and extraordinary, that “dream worth living,” his adventures have included a five-month solo in the wilderness, travels to the Amazon, over 30 personal vision quests, and treks to the mountains, forests, canyons, and deserts of Mexico and the United States, as well as apprenticeships with a wide variety of native and non-native “medicine teachers.” Through all this, Sparrow considers his greatest mentor to be the Earth itself.
Following his first vision quest in 1980, Sparrow founded Circles of Air and Stone, which has guided small groups of men and women through 11-day vision quests for over 30 years. He’s the creator of Adventures of the Spirit, a series of workshops for men & women plus the annual Men‘s Wisdom Council at the Rowe Conference Center and The Mythic Warrior Men‘s Training—that have thrived for over twenty years.
