One of the most celebrated and controversial Native American medicine men of the 20th century, Rolling Thunder (1916-1997) was known for his remarkable healings and for his ability to call on the forces of nature, typically in the form of thunder clouds. He was also a passionate activist who worked to trigger social change on behalf of Native American tribes. Sought after as a lecturer and workshop leader, he used the money he earned from teaching to construct Meta Tantay, a community in the Nevada desert. In this book, edited by his grandson Sidian Morning Star Jones and longtime friend Stanley Krippner, we hear directly from people profoundly changed by Rolling Thunder, whether through direct experience or through his teachings. We learn of his legendary interactions with animals and the forces of Nature and hear from witnesses to his remarkable healings, including the healing of a young boy where a "mist wolf" was seen by several people. We learn of Rolling Thunder's inspiring impact on men and women now devoted in service to humankind and the Earth and read stories both insightful and humorous from friends that prove his climate change predictions true.

Reviews

"Eloquently demonstrates how Rolling Thunder used his knowledge [of animal powers and the seeded earth] in his healing magic and possessed an `eagle's eye' that guided him on his shamanic journeys." * Mickey Hart, percussionist for The Grateful Dead * "An essential companion volume to The Voice of Rolling Thunder for anyone wanting to understand his life, the lives of those he touched, and the variety of disciplines he influenced." * Mark A. Schroll, Ph.D., editor of Transpersonal Ecosophy * "Krippner and Jones have assembled a fascinating and inspiring tribute to Rolling Thunder. To be `a living prayer' is what The White Buffalo Calf Woman of the Lakotas brought to all people. Rolling Thunder lived this truth, and the elements of nature responded in kind as so many people recount herein. His legacy reminds us all that each human's capacity and purpose, is to `shamanize,' to be a co-creator." * J. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus, D.H.L., author * "The legendary Native American shaman Rolling Thunder captured the imagination of musicians, writers, and artists during his lifetime, and his legacy continues to inspire and captivate readers from all walks of life. . . . [a] fascinating retrospective look at a uniquely iconic medicine man. Simply put, you're in for a treat. Tune in, turn on, and read The Shamanic Powers of Rolling Thunder." * Stuart Fischer, M.D., author of The Park Avenue Diet * "More than four decades have now passed since I first heard Rolling Thunder speak at a symposium in San Francisco sponsored by the Association for Humanistic Psychology. I have no doubt that Rolling Thunder's presence at this gathering of open-minded academics and therapists had been facilitated by Stanley Krippner. So, it is both fascinating and heartening to see that, so many decades later, Krippner and his fellow consciousness explorers are still grappling with the spiritual mysteries, social implications, and theoretical dilemmas that have followed in the wake of Rolling Thunder's brilliant career as a Native American shaman. This book exhibits a depth of understanding beyond that of previous treatments. I highly recommend it." * Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., host of New Thinking Allowed video channel * "For any person who wants to expand their knowledge of rare and extraordinary powers and healing abilities exhibited by few on our planet and to learn of the remarkable Rolling Thunder's adept expression and application of such abilities--this book is a `mustread.' Jaw-dropping awe and wonder will be a common response from many! And what a privilege to be reading compelling firsthand accounts by individuals who, each in their own right, contribute greatly to the education, upliftment, and enlightenment of many." * Debbie Joffe Ellis, M.D.A.M., Columbia University * "These first-person encounters with one of the most intriguing figures of recent American history are by turn frightening, amusing, informative, touching, and mystifying. Rolling Thunder's healing and wisdom were sought after by characters as diverse as members of the Grateful Dead, Muhammed Ali, and Buckminster Fuller. The authors have done us all a huge service by collecting these extraordinary accounts of a remarkable man." * Christopher Ryan, Ph.D., coauthor of Sex at Dawn *
