Inspiring hope, solace, and courage in living through our losses, author Martín Prechtel, trained in the Tzutujil Maya shamanic tradition, shares profound insights on the relationship between grief and praise in our culture--how the inability that many of us have to grieve and weep properly for the dead is deeply linked with the inability to give praise for living. In modern society, grief is something that we usually experience in private, alone, and without the support of a community. Yet, as Prechtel says, "Grief expressed out loud for someone we have lost, or a country or home we have lost, is in itself the greatest praise we could ever give them. Grief is praise, because it is the natural way love honors what it misses." Prechtel explains that the unexpressed grief prevalent in our society today is the reason for many of the social, cultural, and individual maladies that we are currently experiencing. According to Prechtel, "When you have two centuries of people who have not properly grieved the things that they have lost, the grief shows up as ghosts that inhabit their grandchildren." These "ghosts," he says, can also manifest as disease in the form of tumors, which the Maya refer to as "solidified tears," or in the form of behavioral issues and depression. He goes on to show how this collective, unexpressed energy is the long-held grief of our ancestors manifesting itself, and the work that can be done to liberate this energy so we can heal from the trauma of loss, war, and suffering. At base, this "little book," as the author calls it, can be seen as a companion of encouragement, a little extra light for those deep and noble parts in all of us. From the Trade Paperback edition.

How did the world come together? Internationally acclaimed author Martin Prechtel tells us in his newest book that the world comes directly from love, loss, grief and ecstasy. In a luminescent testimony to the ancient teaching ability of story, Prechtel, author of Secrets of the Talking Jaguar and Long Life, Honey in the Heart, brings alive this previously unpublished tale from traditional Mayan highland people of central Guatemala. But he does not leave it at that. In his inimitable style, he presents five layers of useful and imaginative commentary that bring out some of the deeper indigenous understandings buried in the story, as well as his own hopeful thoughts on how this story relates to modern people in this troubled time. Beautifully put together, the book is illustrated with twenty-eight of Prechtel's own line drawings. The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun is an incredible read from cover to cover, one of those books you end up taking with you everywhere, into which at any part you can dive, savoring a phrase or one of the exquisite drawings, letting your own imagination out to run.
