Joseph Rael (Beautiful Painted Arrow) has been called our greatest living shaman. Here, in the first scholarly examination of his remarkable life and teachings, Kurt Wilt, PhD places this Native American mystic in the context of more familiar writers and mystic traditions, from Sufism and the Kabbalists to Hildegard of Bingen, Joseph Campbell and William Blake. In doing so, he brilliantly uncovers vital connections between Rael's Native American worldview and the deepest roots of visionary teachings.

The Visionary, far from being a dry philosophical treatise, tells the fascinating story of a life lived in tune with the Vast Spirit and inspires the reader to learn more and to implement the visionary's teachings through the meditations.

This book is for the reader ready to go deeper into the emerging worldview that acknowledges humans' connection to earth and sky, to matter and the unmanifested, to all that is, and all that is coming to be.
