Wisdom of the Wind

James Beard is a keeper of wisdom, a teller of stories, a guardian of the sacred.  Author, speaker, teacher and founder of the Northeast American Cultural Resource, Jim (also known as Noodin which means Wind) shares stories that speak to the heart.  Listen to the interview at Heart Rising, or download directly from iTunes.

Read the full story in his book White Mocs on a Red Road or visit his blog at www.northeastcultural.com.

Indigenous peoples tell sacred stories as a way of keeping coherence in culture. These stories become a foundation of shared understanding of the general nature of life upon which their societies are built. Their stories contain wisdom and hope, and shape their societies in profound ways.  Celtic by birth, Jim has been adopted into an Ojibwe family. He is a student of native teachings from the Ojibwe Elders, an Algonquin language based people who live throughout the Great Lakes region of the US and Canada. Jim has also become a bridge between cultures. His website serves to make the aboriginal teachings of the Northeastern region of North America available to everyone. His wisdom is much in demand in schools, environmental centers, museums and private groups.

Sacred stories may only be shared verbally and may not be written or recorded. Out of respect for his tradition, Noodin has been careful to share only from his personal experience.
