A new edition of 'Sacred Fireplace' with wonderful new photos and some new writing. The book’s cost is $17.95 plus 15% S&H except if it is out of the US/Canada and then the S&H is $12.
'Sacred Fireplace' was long awaited by those who knew of Pete Catches, his work as a healer and renown for bringing the Lakota Sundance back out into the open in the early 1960's. This is a new Edition and improved. In this book he shares some of his life and how he tried not to be a medicine man. After having a sacred dream, he ran away from it for 16 years, until he felt he would die unless he enacted it. This brought him into this spirituality and to become a 37th generation Spotted Eagle medicine man for his people. In this book Pete goes into great detail into the first four of the Seven Sacred Rites given to the Lakota from a Spotted Eagle View: the Sweat Lodge, the Pipe Fast which many know as the vision quest, the Sundance, and the Making of a Relative. He also shares some beautiful Lakota legends.
