    One thought on “The Vision: The Dramatic True Story of One Man's Search for Enlightenment”

    1. Really enjoyed reading (and pondering) this book. I had to take my time with it, to really mull over the stories and morals, and generally just absorb the message. Which is, without giving too much away, that we have to return to nature, or we're all fucked. (Pardon the language.)

    2. Well, first of all, in order to enjoy this book I had to accept that spiritual vision is possible. I think it is, although I have never had one. But, the thing that I really was touched by in the book is that it reinforced a basic sense that some things are true no matter the source. In religion, for instance, the core notion is that we are all part of the same One Creation. What we do to Creation is therefore done to ourselves. If we wish to live a meaningful life, we need to treat everything w [...]

    3. I loved reading this. It provides insight into the world from a Native perspective as well as being accessible and non-fictional. I love the insight it provides into the spirit also. It is a great book to read. My daughter went to a niture school based on these teachings and one of Tom Brown's students started the groups meant to create more attachment to nature again. We have become disconnected and need to work to become connected again. Check his books out!!

    4. I liked the spirituality and some of Brown's opinions on the current state of our society and cultural values. However, some of his opinions were a little too strong and came off as him being judgemental. The way he criticized society but then profited off the very things he spoke against rubbed me the wrong way. I will say though that some of his teachings left a positive impact on me and changed my perspective on life.

    5. This book left me frighthened of what modern man has become and our possible future, but now that a few years have gone by, I have a sense of hope for us all.

    6. I consider this book my bible. He relays his story of an Native American that taught him the native ways as a child. I love this!!!!

    7. This book provided me with a major shift in perspective! It may not be true, but I would love to think that it is and live my life as though it is. Read it!
