LIVING THE LAKOTA WAY
LIVING THE LAKOTA WAY
An invitation to share the legacy of Lakota wisdom
We are all indigenous to planet Earth — and that is why each of us can benefit from the wisdom of indigenous peoples. Throughout their history, the Lakota people have developed many enduring ideas and practices to achieve harmony with all forces in our lives — including the Earth, the spirits, our community, and ourselves. In Living the Lakota Path, Joseph M. Marshall explores how you can apply the basic principles of Lakota wisdom to your own life, no matter who you are or where you come from.
Living Lessons with Simplicity, Courage and Purpose
Through his talents as a storyteller, Joseph Marshall brings the history and lore of Lakota to life in his own words. With every part of the Lakota tradition that he shares, Joseph offers special attention to aspects that are most valuable and relevant to us today in our own lives. How do we choose the heroes we honor? Where do we find the strength to get through tough times? How do we relate to the earth, our ancestors and the deep secret of the spiritual world? The Lakota tradition, as reported by Joseph Marshall, can provide much-needed guidance for finding answers to the most important questions in our lives.
The Lakota people begin their prayers with words that mean “all my relatives,” referring to people, animals, elements and spirits as part of one great family. It is in this spirit of kinship that Joseph M. Marshall offers the greatest treasure of his people — the wisdom of the Lakota tradition, philosophy, and history. Living the Lakota Path is an invitation in friendship to share an inheritance that arose from one people, but was supposed to enrich us all.

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvementóeconomically, intellectually, or emotionallyóoften with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
