From the Back Cover
Place matters. Sacred Sites in North Star Country shows how the land influenced the dramatic social changes that took place in greater New York State that shaped the world. It provides a listing of sacred sites to experience and even sense and feel that consciousness. 

North Star Country was the birthplace of the Women’s Movement and American Democracy, as well as the home to America’s Second Great Awakening. It has been called the Burned-over District for its spiritual wildfires and America’s Psychic Highway. It is a place where prophets walked, religions were born and great souls lived—Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Fredrick Douglas, William Seward, Gerrit Smith…

“One of the Holiest places in the world,” is how the Sikh mystic and guru Baba Virsa Singh described Gobind Sadan his North American ashram in North Star Country.

It was in the heart of North Star Country on the shores of Onondaga Lake (Syracuse, NY) that the great Iroquois prophet the Peacemaker planted the Tree of Peace and gave his people the Great Law of Peace that would serve as a model for America’s founders and inspire the Women’s movement.

It was here that the great mystic and teacher Swami Vivekananda, who introduced yoga and Hindu Vedanta to the West, achieved the highest meditative state of Samadhi, Nirvakalpa Samadhi. It was here that Clara Barton got her epiphany to start the American Red Cross. It was here that the lawyer Charles Grandison Finney walked into the woods one night and committed to God and started his path to be one of the dominant spiritual leaders of America’s Second Great Awakening. More…

That Spirit, that Consciousness, the motivated and inspired so many lies sleeping in the land. Come help reinvigorate it, tap into it and dream of a better world and in the process make a better you.

This is a tremendous source book.  I found it to be easy to read, very thorough, well researched with a wealth of information—an epic work.  Madis’ love and respect for our beloved Mother Earth, Her bounty that is ours for the taking and how cooperation between Her and humanity is for the highest and best good, shines through every page.  If you are looking for a book with a unique and different perspective this is the book for you.
