"The truth, beauty, and simplicity of this book are almost overwhelming. The Garretts have captured the essence of mind, body, soul, and spirit healing through harmony and balance. All who read it will greatly benefit from its depth of sharing the old ways in new understandings."
Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf, Native American ceremonial teacher and author of Goddess as the Weaver of Life

“With simplicity, depth, and generosity, J.T. and Michael Garrett convey key insights from the very foundation of North American wisdom, in a way directly relevant to us today. Medicine of the Cherokee will be a valuable addition to the library of anyone striving to become a true human being.”
Steven McFadden, author, Profiles in Wisdom: Native Elders Speak About the Earth

“Medicine of the Cherokee: The Way of Right Relationship by J.T. Garrett and Michael Garrett is a two part book. The first part by J.T. Garrett is entitled, “The Indian Medicine Story: A Cherokee Perspective” and has seven chapters which cover the Four Directions, the natural medicine path, the physical medicine path, the mental medicine path, the spiritual medicine path, and also tells us about our place in the Universal Circle. In the first part of this book we are given much wisdom from the Elders and shown how to honor the sacred directions and be one with Mother Earth. Part two by Michael Garrett is entitled, ” To Walk In Beauty: The Way of Right Relationship” in which we are shown how to live in balance and beauty according to the Tsalagi (Cherokee). There are wonderful exercises in both parts to help us connect with nature and live in beauty. I will be reading this book again and recommend it to all who want to live in harmony and balance and wish to walk the Good Medicine Path. I am so grateful to the Garrett’s for sharing their wisdom with us so that we can pass it on to future generations. I would recommend this book to everyone. I acknowledge that I received this book free of charge from Inner Traditions Publishing in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of the book.”
