The sacred path to discovering the gifts, talents and abilities of the feminine is through the ancient teachings of the sisterhood. Written by the author of "Sacred Path Cards", this practical guide to self-knowledge reveals the mysteries of an ancient feminine oral tradition. Jamie Sams records Native-American traditions passed on to her by two Kiowa grandmothers, and provides a tool that any woman can use to bring ancient feminine wisdom into daily life. Sams shows readers how to discover and cultivate their innate power through the teachings of the Thirteen Original Clan Mothers. Each clan mother represents a particular teaching. Each relates to a cycle of the moon and has special totems, talents and gifts. Readers learn how to find their birth clan mother, develop their personal talents and teach the truths of women's medicine. Jamie Sams is the author of "The Discovery of Self Through Native Teachers".

Sams, a Native American medicine teacher, is probably best known for developing "medicine cards" and "sacred path cards" as tools for self-discovery. In this book, she draws on her own 18-year search for spiritual truth. Sams's spiritual understanding comes from Native American traditions but is not derived solely from the teachings of any one tribe. The primary focus of her spiritual quest involves the wisdom of 13 "original clan mothers"--described as the 13 aspects of the feminine principle of life. Each clan mother represents a lesson in the development of feminine wisdom. Symbolic stories demonstrate the path to self-knowledge taken by each clan mother. Sams's book can serve as a useful guide for those interested in pursuing self-transformation. It should be of value to libraries with collections on Native American and women's spirituality.
