A must-read about the impact of historical trauma on Native American communities and individuals, including therapy clients. Also excellent for anyone interested in culturally-congruent psychology interventions. A book that practices what it preaches, seamlessly melding spiritual and intellectual traditions with practical considerations.

Excellent insight on ways to work with Original Peoples. Practical and a good book to remind us what the problems are with sticking with our Western world view and how harmful that can be to other cultures. It is a book to read to become more culturaly competent. I suggest all psychotherapists, and counselors read it.

Eduardo Duran is a very magical man and listening to him speak is the most soothing thing you can do for yourself on a Saturday evening. This book also blew my mind. A must-read for anyone interested in therapy & inter-generational trauma.

The overall concepts were amazing with lots of concrete takeaways. However I struggled with some of the presentation of information through dialogues.
