Voices of the First Day
Awakening in the Aboriginal Dreamtime
by Robert Lawlor
Recommended by Tamarack Song

      Almost totally annihilated by a systematic genocide and the theft of their homelands, the Australian Aborigines met Western colonialism with a culture that had flourished in continuous harmony with the Earth for tens of thousands of years. From this culture and its Dreamtime revelation comes a revisioning of the Golden Age of Mankind. Robert Lawlor asks us to suspend our values, prejudices and Eurocentrism and step into the Dreaming - to walk with our most ancient human ancestors into the First Day to discover:

      -A people who rejected agriculture, architecture, writing, clothing, and the subjugation of animals.

      -A lifestyle of hunting and gathering that provided abundant food of unsurpassed nutritional value.

      -Initiatic and ritual practices that hold the orgins of all esoteric, yogic, magical, and shamanistic traditions.

      -A sexual and emotional life that afforded diversity and fludity as well as martial and social stability.

      -A people who valued kinship, community, and the law of the Dreamtime as their greatest "possessions."

      -Language whose richness of structure and vocabulary reveals new worlds of perception and comprehension.

      -A people balanced between the Dreaming and the perceivable world, in harmony with all species and living each day as the First Day.

      More than 150 color and duotone illustrations. Voices of the First Day is illustrated throughout with drawings, fine art reproductions, and photographs. Many of these photographs are among the earliest ever made of Aboriginal people and are shown here for the first time. Large-format paperback. 432 pages. Inner Traditions. 1991. ISBN: 0892813555.
