Mutant Message Down Under (Paperback)
It's been so long since I read this book that I'm not sure I can justify what I liked about this book.
It's a fictional portrayal of one woman's wanderings with a group of aboriginies in the Australian Outback. It starts when she arrives at the appointed place to begin her trek, the group welcomed her and... burned everything she brought with her. From here the book takes you through her physical and mental challenges as she comes to accept, appreciate and love the people and their lifestyle.
Take a chance and read this book about a vanishing lifestyle.— Dixie
"A powerful message for all of us. I was hypnotized by the simple truths and spiritual lessons. Read it and tell everyone you know to do the same." --Wayne Dyer
This incredible adventure story--and New York Times bestseller--offers us an opportunity to discover the wisdom of an ancient culture and to hear its powerful message.
An American woman is summoned by a remote tribe of nomadic Aboriginals who call themselves the “Real People” to accompany them on a four-month-long walkabout through the Outback. While traveling barefoot with them through 1,400 miles of rugged desert terrain, she learns a new way of life, including their methods of healing, based on the wisdom of their 50,000-year-old culture. Ultimately, she experiences a dramatic personal transformation.
Mutant Message Down Under recounts a unique, timely, and powerful life-enhancing message for all humankind: It is not too late to save our world from destruction if we realize that all living things--be they plants, animals, or human beings--are part of the same universal oneness. If we heed the message, our lives, like the lives of the Real People, can be filled with this great sense of purpose.
