Wokini, translated from Lakota, means “seeking a new beginning” or “seeking a new vision.” This book will teach you about yourself, show you what it means to be happy, and lead you on your own personal journey to feel more satisfied in your life. In Wokini, you will find the key to peace of mind and self-understanding. Wokini is a blend of modern therapeutic principles, positive thinking; self-awareness; and Native American beliefs in meditation, thought, dreams, and respect for the harmony and balance of nature.
This parable of a young man’s spiritual quest begins with death and moves toward life. When his favorite sister dies, the grieving young Lakota, David, is given a mysterious scroll by his father. Through visionary teachings, David learns how to move past his pain and into happiness. Coauthor Billy Mills is the Olympic gold medalist whose life inspired the movie “Running Brave.” Now an inspirational speaker and Indian activist, Mills offers through David’s story simple, direct advice that cannot be gainsaid. Happiness, he argues, is not a matter of circumstance but of attitude. Cultivating an accepting, reverent attitude toward life creates the best climate for happiness. An optimistic book likely to appeal widely.
