Healing the Earth

Hi Folks,

First and foremost I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving no matter where you are or what your are doing. Know that you are not far from my thoughts and prayers and it is especially now during the holiday season that I ask you all to reach out and reconnect with the Tracker Family. Make sure everyone is doing well and isn’t in need in any way. If all you can offer is a sincere prayer than do so, do whatever it takes to keep our bonds strong and live the Vision of the greater Tracker Family that Grandfather so cherished and believed in. It is only through our individual and collective Visions and our dedication to the Tracker Family that we can all truly make a difference.

The reason for this posting goes well beyond wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving for it is all of you that I am so very thankful for and all that you do behind the scenes. It is because of all of you and your Vision that my new book, “Tom Browns’ Field Guide to Healing the Earth” has made it to the number one place for new book releases with a 37 overall placement as it stands now. Never, ever in my wildest dreams did I think that any of my books would make it to such a powerful place in the main stream publishing industry. Sincerely I’m shocked, dumb struck, in awe and eternally grateful to all of you who went out there and pushed my book, many of you going far out of your way to visit the few remaining books stores, telling friends, and pushing the importance of the book to the internet and social media monster. Wow, I’m absolutely floored to a point were I have to wipe tears away just to see the computer screen.

I’ve been saying my book but as you all know that is not the case. It is also Randy’s book because he pushed himself hard to meet the deadlines, run interference for me with the publisher, and wrote often times during a class in his tent into the wee hours of the night to get it done. Randy, Thank You and you know my heart. Yet the book goes well beyond Randy and I and also includes all of you; the Elders, the Keepers of the Wisdom, The Apprentices, the Visionaries, Ghost Talkers, Keepers of the Ceremony, and so many other Medicine Societies along with the greater Tracker Family in general that are all part of this book. In my mind and heart this is the first of my 18 books that belong to all of us for it is now our story, our Vision and all of our hopes and dreams. And it couldn’t come at a better time for the young people of the world are now in need of direction, we have failed them because of our greed and hopefully now this youth movement and new consciousness along with the book might forge a path that could very well save what we have left of our Sacred Earth Mother before we destroy Her and ourselves in the process.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you with countless prayers and blessings form all of us.

In Medicine, Tom


Hi Folks,

I guess Grandfather’s Leaf Chase Game could not have come at a better time. I’ve been getting so much feedback that it is hard to keep up with all the comments and fun that folks have been having with the Chase. The kids at the 4 E’s family camp this past weekend had a blast and some of the pictures and video they sent are stunning. What a great way for kids to have fun and exercise at the same time. Grandfather and the lineage of elders that are at the foundation of all I teach were absolutely brilliant in so many ways, especially in the way of the Coyote and teaching that can and often does run so deep and life changing.

I thought that it would be fun to take the Leaf Chase Game to a new and higher level. It’s not only designed for kids but for adults also, especially those on a spiritual path. The modification of the game will not only give the body a great workout but also on a deeper level the Spiritual Body and Mind get even more of a workout. The approach to the Advanced Leaf Chase game is nearly the same as with the normal Leaf Chase but with a few changes. First you will need one or more spotters that will keep the Chasers save from injury and second you should only have a few players. The other major change is that the Chasers are BLINDFOLDED. Yes you read that right! BLINDFOLDED.

The modification of the Leaf Chase Game will push the Chasers limits to the maximum level of awareness both on a physical and spiritual level. At first the chaser will think that they are chasing leaves that they somehow became aware of because of the faint “pop and drop and flutter” sound of the falling leaves. Of course this is not the full story. It doesn’t take long before you realize that you are picking up the drop and direction of the floating leave on an entirely different level and that level is not the level of intense or acute awareness or observation but something deeper, more visceral and intense.

With adults it is easy to discover what is going on and how this is done on a spiritual level, far outreaching the limitations of our physical senses. However for the younger children simply play dumb and blame it more on the children’s keep level of observation and awareness skills. Using the term spiritual may tend to scare the child a bit especially if the child is not around folks who tend to lean toward the spiritual elements of life and living.

In any case there is no pass or fail. Given enough time and passing out of your mind any trying or explanation of how you are able to catch falling leaves while blindfolded you will keep getting better and better. What an intense workout for the physical and spiritual mind and body. Enjoy! More to come and very soon.
