Skilled predators prized by hunters and cursed by ranchers, mountain lions are the wild soul of the American West. Now a wildlife biologist brings you nose to nose with the elusive cougar. Harley Shaw shares dramatic stories culled from his years of studying mountain lions, separating fact from myth regarding their habits while raising serious questions about mankind's relationship with this commanding creature. "Most of us move into the country because we love wildlife," writes Shaw. "But none of us will tolerate having our pets or children eaten. . . . When lion/human encounters occur, the lion (or bear, or wolf) always ultimately loses." Soul among Lions offers us a chance to consider the true meaning of that loss.

An exploration of the relationship between humans and nature through conversations with 12 leading scientific and social visionaries • Explores the importance of the unification of humankind and nature as it relates to creation, destruction, diversity, and the spiritual health of the world • Contains interviews with Rupert Sheldrake, Jane Goodall, and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum, among others Society’s attitude toward nature has changed considerably over the years. Terms pertaining to the anthropocentric paradigm of "mankind in charge," such as supervisor or owner, have been replaced by caretaker or trustee. This approach, although more appropriate, still indicates a complete separation of humankind from nature. Yet increasing numbers of people have begun to feel that they are intrinsically part of nature. This concept of unity with the natural world--that we are nature--is gaining momentum among many innovative social reformers from many diverse fields. In Science, Soul, and the Spirit of Nature, Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld interviews 12 respected visionary thinkers, representing all continents, about their deep connection with the earth and their views on the relationship between humanity and nature. Presented as a series of thought-provoking conversations, this book delves deeply into the many conceptions we hold about nature, showing that while many strides have been made in the area of its preservation, we must now take the next step. Each contributor adds insights into the urgent change in consciousness that we must adopt in order to heal and restore our holistic relationship with the earth that was emblematic of the first peoples--reminding us that a separation from and destruction of nature is a spiritual destruction of ourselves.

This is Linda Tucker’s firsthand account of her journey into the mysteries of the most sacred animal on the African continent: the legendary White Lion. This book reveals the knowledge and ceremonies of Old Africa and the overwhelming love that has driven her every action to save these magnificent beasts, against formidable odds…After being rescued from a life-threatening encounter with lions in the Timbavati game region by a medicine woman known as the "Lion Queen," Linda embarked on a journey into the mysteries of the White Lion. It is a mystical journey into the knowledge and ceremonies of Old Africa, in which humans and lions are able to cross the species barrier—in accordance with the most guarded secrets of Ancient Egypt and humankind’s greatest riddle, the sphinx. Scientists in our day have established that humankind’s most significant evolutionary leap occurred as a result of our ancestors’ interaction with great cats. The White Lion is a genetic rarity of Panthera leo, and occurred in just one region on earth: Timbavati. Today White Lions form the center of the notorious "canned" trophy hunting industry—hand-reared captive lions, shot in enclosures for gross sums of money. By contrast, shamans believe that killing a "lion sun god" is the ultimate sacrilege. How the human species treats such precious symbols of God in nature may determine how nature treats the human species. Whether we view them as prophetic "Lions of God" or simply as rare genetic mutations, the story of the White Lions is a true legend unfolding in our own extraordinary times.

Lion images are everywhere. In literature, in religion, in statues, emblems and heraldry. Symbols of them are found in all larger European cities -- particularly London. Many are also in Vancouver, British Columbia. A lion image is visually stimulating and should become part of our life.

This book Souls Amongst Lions: Battle In The Valley Of Death is about my own experience of others I met who suffered in the hands of their mothers, siblings and in-laws. In this book I touch on marriages between refugees and citizens. My own experience and that of my husband and child has been a painful one. My mother rejecting me for marrying a foreigner. Ganging up with her children, their spouses and children against me, my husband and child. Also recruiting her relatives, friends and some people in the community to reject me. She also hired some stalkers to monitor me and my child. She treated me like a mental ill person. She prevented people from helping me financially. Many people who knew me wanted to assist me financially. She told them lies, that I was bewitched, not normal anymore. My crime was to marry the man I love, a foreign man in her eyes. Mother wanted me for herself. To rule me as she wish. I also talk about people I met mostly those who suffer for marrying men from Africa. These are the lower class people. Higher class people do not suffer because they have money and they stay in suburbs. Those who stay in townships, squatter camps and villages are the ones who feel the heat of rejection. This book is different to the Reigning Of The Refugee, The Citizens Bow To The Refugees and Beyond Four Boarders that I already published. I spent four years without my husband. This was the time my mother, brother and sister and their crew taunted and mocked my Christian faith. "If you can fast and pray why don't you pray that God bring your husband back"! I suffered so much torment, as though lions were tearing my soul apart . There was a time I got sick. My mother would phone her children and relatives and promise to notify them soon of my death. My mother's obsession with me was some kind of madness. What is good about serving God of heaven is that no one under the sun can manipulate Him. While my mother and her gang thought they were controlling me, God was giving me strength and ability to write books. I met people who contributed greatly to my life. God sent people to encourage me when I was down. God still speaks to His children today.
