The Sacred Dimension
Two books that address the sacred dimension are The Distorted Past by Josep Fontana, and The Primal Mind by Jamake Highwater. Taken together, these authors explore what it is that — as the ancient seed of all humanity — tribal peoples still possess that the diaspora has misplaced. The proposition being that it is a universal heritage lost by many as indigenous roots were severed, but recoverable to some extent through study and practice.
