13 Virtues to a New Life
We have one shot at life. We better make the most of it - and get the most from it.
For readers searching for self-awareness, enlightenment, and knowledge of Native American culture, 13 Virtues to a New Life: A Journey Around the Medicine Wheel by Ralph P. Brown is a stunning blend of allegories, parables, legends, and myth. The author, whose Mohawk name is Tawennihake, is an accomplished pointillist artist and Native American storyteller, and in this collection of Native American wisdoms he offers a rare spiritual and artistic journey. From how humans perceive one another to how people can change their course to how they understand God, this compilation offers something for everyone. The stories beg to be read aloud, and with titles such as “The Boy, the Old Man and the Village,” “How Brother Skunk Got His Stripes,” and “Jumping Mouse,” there is exuberance, hubris, and charm. As the Medicine Wheel turns east, south, west, and north, all that is truly spiritually appealing in life is given its due course and introspection.
The Medicine Wheel speaks to us in a language of symbols and the thirteen Indian teaching stories in this book are built around this language. Each story has at its heart one or more virtues and many lessons. Inspired and wise, this book will change your life - one virtue at a time. If you know there is a better way to exist, here is your template; here is your guide. Today is a good day to start the journey to a better existence - or as Gandhi said, "to be the change you want to see in the world."
In this day and age there are many things calling for our attention that just the day-to-day effort to make ends meet can be enough to distract people from personal growth and evolvement. One of the goals of this book is to help you start off each day with awareness and renewed intention on making these virtues a part of your daily life.

We follow the spiritual journey of young Okwaho as he travels the road of life with wise old Lightning Eyes. Along the way, the boy learns about his traditions and the wisdom that lies at the heart of his culture. He is also taught the importance and the power of the Medicine Wheel, a force that mirrors all that exists. Through the use of tribal parables, history, philosophy, and ceremonial observations the reader is carried into a world in which the riddles of life are revealed, many of its answers found in Native American culture and tradition.
Through this journey, we become acutely aware of our senses and how they affect our perceptions of life and living.
