Buckminster Fuller reminds us, You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete. This book provides just that model, as well as concrete practices for living it. The model is derived from ancient wisdom traditions, modeled on the pulses, cycles, and seasons of our beloved Earth Mother. It deeply grounds the listener in a this world spirituality that blends indigenous cosmologies, earth-honoring ritual, and time-tested models for living with modern sensibilities. The proposed text presents the biography of an extraordinary man, who has awakened to his own purpose in life as a servant to conscious evolution for all humanity. His life story, full of adventure, cosmic interventions, and synchronicity is on par with that of the luminaries documented in these biographies and the time has come for his story to be told. Don Oscars story is also the story of each one of us. The only reason his story has not been told until now is that he was first charged with creating opportunities for others to awaken to their higher purpose through his teachings as part of an oral tradition. Now, after completing his compacto (sacred contract) with his Andean teachers and mentors, he has been released from service to tell his story in writing. And it is an extraordinary story, dealing with nothing less than individual, spiritual, and planetary transformation. Oscar Miro-Quesada originated the Pachakuti Mesa tradition of cross-cultural shamanism, and is the visionary founder of The Heart of the Healer (THOTH) Foundation. He is a respected kamasqa curandero and altomisayoq adept from Peru and has been guiding cross-cultural ethno-spiritual apprenticeship expeditions to sacred sites of the world since 1986, with special emphasis on Peru and Bolivia. He has been a popular faculty member at numerous US educational centers. His work and programs have been featured on CNN, Univision, A&E, and the Discovery Channel. Bonnie Glass-Coffin, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized professor of anthropology at Utah State University. She has studied with Peruvian curanderos since 1982 and is author of The Gift of Life: Female Spirituality and Healing in Northern Peru. She began apprenticing with don Oscar in 2005, experiencing the transformative power of these wisdom teachings and integrating these deeply into her life. This deep apprenticeship has enabled her to take a leading role in presenting OMQ's life-work to a wide audience. She currently lives in Logan, Utah. "Oscar Miro-Quesada, my dear friend of over 30 years, is both a Western-educated psychologist and traditionally initiated shaman. His book, Lessons in Courage, is a profound, articulate, and gripping account of Oscar's deep-rooted apprenticeship with don Celso Rojas, a renowned curandero from Salas, Peru. Oscar is a true genius, a genuinely warm and loving individual, and these qualities shine through in the book. A compelling tale about our human quest for wholeness, Lessons in Courage openly chronicles Oscar's befriending of sacred and profane dimensions of life, giving us a brilliant rendition of the uncompromising light so often encountered at the end of the tunnel." (Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., author of Life After Life) "This is a great book that can attune the worlds of indigenous peoples with the rational scientific traditions of the modern world. It guides us toward incarnation of all levels of ourselves. Oscar embodies this wholeness and reveals the processes learned in his own epic journey through fields of reality from the Earth to the Star people, from contemporary academic knowledge to the depth and power of indigenous wisdom and ritual, most especially the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism. Lessons in Courage is an indispensable classic for our generation...." (Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution)

There are 13 ancient history books that are mentioned and recommended by the Bible. The Ancient Book of Jasher is the only one of the 13 that still exists. It is not surprising that this ancient document confirms the Scripture and the chronology given in the Hebrew version of the Old Testament, once and for all settling the chronology differences between the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek Septuagint. The Book of Jasher covers the Mosaic period of the Bible presented in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua in greater detail and with explanations not found in the present Old Testament documents. This apocryphal book of the Bible has been considered by some to be the original beginning to the Bible and is referenced in both the Book of Joshua and the Second Book of Samuel. One of the non-canonical books referenced in the Bible, The Book of Jasher spans the Bible books of Genesis through Joshua. For many, this ancient manuscript fills in blanks left by some biblical accounts - including the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, and the Tower of Babel. The Book of Jasher provides readers with interesting, important, and perhaps otherwise ignored insights into the first 2,000 years of biblical history. This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact. History Academy strives to present Kindle, paperback, and audiobook versions of authentic, unabridged historical texts from prior eras which contain a variety of points of view. The Book of Jashar was compiled from the Babylonian Talmud and other Jewish sources, and intermixed with Arabic legends and passages of the Bible. The Book of Jashar is the normal English name (used by e.g., the King James Bible) of a work known in the original Hebrew as Sefer haYashar. It is the best known of several "lost books of the Old Testament", books referenced in the Hebrew Bible of which no copies are known to exist. The original Hebrew translates as "Book of the Upright". The translation "Book of the Just Man" is the traditional Greek and Latin translation, while the transliterated form "Jasher" is found in the King James Bible, 1611. This title was misread as 'Jasher', and at some point Jasher was treated as a proper name; however the pronoun 'the' (hebrew 'ha') never preceeds proper names. The Bible has a few books in the Old Testament mentioning books that were considered lost, among them is the book of Jasher. This particular extracanonical book was originally written and printed in Hebrew in 1552, and later in Venice in 1625. Even though most skeptics dont consider it authentic because no copy older than the 1625 Hebrew edition is found today, there is a similar passage in this Book of Jasher and the Genesis Apocryphon found among the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, which could lead us to think that maybe the Book of Jasher is really at least 2000 years old.

She describes in shocking and honest details the various types of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse she encountered while growing up. At 15 years old, she became pregnant and ran away, surviving among drug and prostitution-filled streets, while searching herself for forgiveness for all who hurt her. Years after her sister's death to overdose and her own suicide attempt, Lisa describes her lowest points in life. Through her strength, determination, and faith, she survived a traumatic childhood, endured the challenges of being a single parent, overcame abusive relationships, and broke free from a lifetime of multiple addictions.

This is a story of victory in the face of a lifetime of adversity. Lisa began sharing her story through a series of powerful posts on Facebook in May of 2018 that extended over a two-month period. Some of the actual posts are incorporated into The Hands That Held Me. As she exposed the horrific memories of her own childhood and publicly admitted to her addictions and afflictions, others stepped forth, inspired by her story, to tell their own story and begin their own journey of healing and recovery. About the author: Lisa Jo earned a dual bachelors and masters degree in health sciences - public health.
