Book Description

Sept. 1 1998
The remarkable story of one man's rediscovery of his primordial mandate and of the strange journey that took him there. * Explores the innate knowledge that exists within us all, a primal awareness, that can help us to live in harmony with our world. * Shows how we can rediscover this unseeable realm.

In 1983, caught in a violent rainstorm while kayaking Mexico's Copper Canyon, Don Trent Jacobs was swept into an impassable catacomb of underwater tunnels toward what he believed was certain death. But instead of panic, Jacobs found himself filled with a strange consciousness that left him feeling at peace and invigorated with a confidence he had never before known. Moments later he was spit from the tunnel--alive--and not at the end of his journey, but only at the beginning.

Primal Awareness tells the story of Don Trent Jacobs's remarkable vision of the human mind and heart and the compelling spiritual quest that brought him to it. Through his experiences with the Raramuri people of Mexico and his research of other indigenous societies, Jacobs identifies what he calls our primal awareness, an innate knowledge that exists within us all. Jacobs shows how we can rediscover this primordial mandate that unites all things and that helps us to find our own inner strength and harmony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Age-old wisdom - startlingly new and essentially vital! Nov. 28 1998
By Judith Prager, Ph.D. (hyoutt@netcom.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Forget all of those bogus, would-be "shamans" and read this book if you want to viscerally understand what primal people have to teach a civilization too far from its roots to heal itself. Don Jacobs is the most courageous human being I can imagine - from his daring "horse-whispering" exploits with wild mustangs and his death-defying vision quests in the land of the Raramuri to his theories and propositions which boldly challenge all of our assumptions. He reminds us that we are literally "this close" to being fully- realized. even psychic, humans, our main impediment to our greatness being those comforts we cherish. Having read this book, I know that I will never be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Primal Awareness will make the world a better place to live. Dec 1 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although some articles have been written about what is happening to my people regarding the drugs, lumbering and violence, only Don Jacobs has captured the spiritual understandings that have allowed us to live in balance for thousands of years. As a recipient of the Goldman Environmental Award, as the Directorof the Sierra Madre Alliance and as a half-Raramuri Indian, I can say without reservation that Primal Awareness will help make the world a better place if enough people read it. I agree with Dan Millman's review of the book when he said it is a 'suspsne story that embraces realms of psychology,anthropology and magic.'

5.0 out of 5 stars I could not put the book down. Both uplifting and tragic. Nov. 4 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At times I was saddened to tears, other moments I was inspired. This is truly a unique book, combining a remarkable true life story with a more "scholarly" analysis of the thinking processes that differentiate between indigenous thinking and traditional wetsern thinking and how we can all regain our amazing "primal awareness' to help us live a full and balanced life.
