2013 USU Faculty Author Spotlight

The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2013 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:

Bonnie Glass-Coffin

Professor, Anthropology

Department Sociology, Social Work & Anthropology

Glass-Coffin, Bonnie & Miro-Quesada, don Oscar. 2013. Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life. Garden City Park, NY: Rainbow Ridge Books.

This book provides a model derived from ancient wisdom traditions, modeled on the pulses, cycles, and seasons of our beloved Earth Mother. It deeply grounds the reader in a "this world" spirituality that blends indigenous cosmologies, earth-honoring ritual, and time-tested models for living with modern sensibilities.
