"The book is clearly written for the general reader and includes many descriptions of trance experiences. It may serve as a good introduction to the nature and appeal of the shamanic revival in modern Western cultures." —Theological Book Review "... a case study in experiential anthropology that offers a unique mix of autobiography, mythology, experiential research, and archaeological data to support a challenging thesis—that certain body postures may help induce specific trance states." —Shaman’s Drum "This is a spellbinding and exceptionally readable book by an extraordinary woman." —Yoga Journal "And suddenly the understanding of my own vision washed over me like a mighty wave... For life or for death, I was committed to that mighty realm of which I was shown a brief reminder, the world where all was forever motion and emergence, that realm where the spirits ride the wind." —from the Prologue Goodman reexamines our notions of the nature of reality by studying the ritual postures of native art assumed by her subjects during trance states. For readers desiring to discover this world of ancient myths, she has included a practical guide on how to achieve such ecstatic experiences.

RIDE THE WIND: Love for the magnificent Appaloosa horse, a breed once cherished by the proud Nez Perce, brings together two scarred people who have every reason to hate each other: rancher’s daughter, Maggie Sterling, a woman forever damaged by the Indian conflict, and Joe Hart, a man with a hidden past that threatens to destroy his future... Joe’s quest to reclaim the land and horses which once belonged to his people, takes him from a bleak reservation in Kansas to breathtaking Idaho—and into Maggie’s carefully planned life. Though she is promised to another man and still suffers from what renegade Indians did to her family, Maggie cannot resist her attraction to this striking stranger whose secret Nez Perce name is Heart-of-the-Stallion... RIDE THE WIND takes the reader back to the 1890s, after the defeat of the Nez Perce Indians. The U.S. Army has slaughtered entire herds of the beautiful spotted horses that represent the soul and spirit of the Nez Perce nation. Can the breed survive the lingering hatred and vengeance of the conquerors toward the conquered?... And can two kindred spirits overcome years of bitter conflict and find love and healing in forbidden passion?

Ride The Wind Laughing is about building a 51-foot sailboat almost single-handedly in the back yard with virtually no money-at least, it started out that way. It's about the mystical nature of the Laws of Manifestation . about how dreams and distant possibilities come into existence on Planet Earth. Over a period of four and a half years, a series of events unfolded that were far more interesting than the long hours of hard physical labor or the recounting of boring and repetitive tasks essential to any physical construction project. Working with the wonderful people of rural Nova Scotia, its fishing villages and small local businesses proved as interesting as the magical unfolding of events making it impossible to deny that life itself is controlled by some great invisible hand which has a vested interest in seeing Its creations completed and It's dreams fulfilled. At the age of 44, I had come to a second major crossroad in my life. The first occurred when I left behind the world of corporate business at age 35. The next 9 years were years of spiritual and religious training, and the study in detail of as many aspects of esoteric thinking as I intuitively felt led to greater and greater things. I finally came to the point where my questions all ceased. I had sound mental concepts and could talk the talk, but I had not yet walked the walk to the journey's end. Of what value was all this information, knowledge, and perspective I had so diligently obtained if it could not be practically applied? Ride the Wind Laughing is also a story about riding the winds of life with equanimity and contentedness despite the hardships of daily life. It's about perspective . about looking down on lifemuch as would the student pilot on his very first flight. Once the view from above is attained, there's no going back to being land-locked again. Like the wind, this is a story you can feel. May it expand your perspective as it did mine.
