MARBLE, NC, June 13, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In 1872 on the plains of Montana, a nine-year old Lakota boy named Black Elk embarked on a journey to the spirit world where six old men, recognized as the powers of the world, showed him four ascents described as generations and revealed to him the fate of humanity.
Thousands have read about Black Elk's life and visions, but questions remain. People around the world have wondered what dancing horses are all about. What is the blue man, and why is he blue? Why did spirits use the term ascents rather than generations? Why did butterflies of every color swarm around Black Elk? Mystic Visions answers these questions and more and unlocks the message of Black Elk's great vision of the sacred hoop and flowering tree.
Quentin H. Young combines his personal journey to the Red Road and to enlightenment with Black Elk's teachings. This illuminating narrative seeks to explain in contemporary terms Black Elk's visions and the impact they have on our world.
"Quentin's clarifications of the visions chronicled in the seminal book Black Elk Speaks are fresh and down-to-earth," says Word Branch Publishing's president, Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh. "Reading Mystic Visions feels like sitting around the campfire with an old friend."
Young is mixed blood Lakota and has been involved in the Lakota spiritual way of life since 1950.He has studied Nicholas Black Elk's Great Vision of the nation's hoop and the flowering tree, and he has both lectured at colleges and universities and taught courses based on his research.
