How Does Raven Know? Entering Sacred World | A Meditative Memoir

by Margaret J. Wheatley

How Does The Raven Know Cover ImageI am very pleased to offer you this new book, a very personal and reflective work written just after my 70th birthday.

Each of my books is an invitation to see the world with new eyes. Yet unlike my previous seven books, How Does Raven Know? invites you to see the world anew informed not by science but by sacred wisdoms. I have sought to encourage you to shift your gaze once again to discover the support, confidence, and companionship we need to meet this time. My aspiration is to reintroduce you to a world we modern ones have dismissed or ignored, a world still held for us in the ancient wisdom traditions of most cultures.    It is not a call to action, but to relationship with forgotten companions and animate Earth that, in my own experience, willingly offer us support, encouragement, and consolation.

My life has blessed me with uncounted opportunities to be with and learn from people of many different cultures and in many different roles. I began my journey into unknown cultures in Korea in the 1960s as a Peace Corps volunteer. Then, Korea was still a traditional society, harmed by war, not yet lost to globalization. Since then I have been happiest when sitting in conversation with people who appear very different, together discovering our shared humanity. The range of my experiences is a treasure: I’ve sat in the Australian Outback with Aboriginal elders, in both village rondavels and Parliament offices in South Africa, in First Nations communities in North America, with corporate CEOs and government leaders, with the Dalai Lama in New Orleans, with park rangers in wilderness areas. Some of what they taught me is here in this book; it makes me very happy to share their teachings with you.

Please take a look inside the book to get a sense of its beauty and what it offers.  You’ll see how different it is from past books–certainly not a traditional leadership book!  If it attracts you, you can order it through this website.  (I have not yet made it available through book sellers or other websites.)
