Heide Hatry: Icons in Ash

Heide Hatry

The art of the human image arose millennia ago as a way beyond impermanence and, especially, to keep the dead among us. The pictorial object “the icon” often carried a charge as ritual or ceremonial artifact and, indeed, as a thing with a certain power. The artist Heide Hatry has extended this tradition by creating realistic portraits made out of the actual ashes of the departed person portrayed….

Heide Hatry
The art of the human image arose millennia ago as a way beyond impermanence and, especially, to keep the dead among us. The pictorial object “the icon” often carried a charge as ritual or ceremonial artifact and, indeed, as a thing with a certain power. The artist Heide Hatry has extended this tradition by creating realistic portraits made out of the actual ashes of the departed person portrayed. Are the results reminiscent of ancient sacred and secular traditions and their complex, even mysterious function to, say, calm, enrich or transform our experience? Icons in Ash includes seventeen of Hatry’s portraits and twenty-seven contemporary writers who explore this phenomenon in original and engaging meditations on death, the dead body, art, relics, psychology, philosophy, religion, mourning, evolution, transformation, and immortality. Contributors include, among others, Hans Belting, Mark Dery, Eleanor Heartney, Siri Hustvedt, Jonas Mekas, Rick Moody, Mark Pachter, Steven Pinker, Wolf Singer, Luisa Valenzuela, and Peter Weibel.

Indian Summer is a collection of 26 full-color photographs, paired with the views of eight Native American authors, capturing remote and powerful American landscapes. The authors include Ohiyesa, Brave Buffalo, Standing Bear, Shooter, Chased-by-Bears, Zitkala-Sa, Crowfoot, and Seattle. Both the photographs and the Native voices make a positive statement about the importance of loving and respecting the land. Standing Bear speaks for many Americans when he says, “From Wakan Tanka there came a a great underlying life force that flowed in and through all things….Thus all things were kindled and brought together by the same Great Mystery.”

The photographs by Ms Wyckoff represent more than 30 years of photographing nature throughout the United States. They have appeared in gallery exhibitions, as cover and internal art in various publications, and are owned by numerous private collectors.

“For the deer and the grasses I have written this book, so that we may again be At One with them.” Thus writes Tamarack Song, in this extraordinary, practical guide to native lifeways- the essential wisdom connecting all native peoples. The book speaks to readers of every background who seek a connection with their essential self- that person, deep within each of us “who dances to the Drum around the ritual Fire, who knows healing lore from times when plants spoke, who yearns for the peace and Blessings of walking again in the Balance of Our Earth.” In clear but evocative language, the author shares his unique message: that the lifeways of all Native peoples are essentially one, sharing not just the same ceremonies and life transitions, but the same spirit and reverence for life; and that all of us, regardless of ethnic background or religious upbringing, are essentially Native people. The book begins by demonstrating how native lifeways- the ways of the Guardian Warrior, the caretaking of children, the reverence for elders (“Keepers of the Ancestral Voice”)- are intrinsic to the human experience. Drawing on a series of native traditions, from fasting and feasting- to dreams and the receiving of visions, the book shows the reader how to bring to life intuitive, sensory, and spiritual powers long-hidden.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Kundalini and the Art of Being is the soulful memoir of a young man’s profound experience of unanticipated kundalini awakening. It details both the events leading up to his life-changing spiritual experience, and how he learned to cope with its bewildering and multi-dimensional aftereffects. Part spiritual adventure story, part wandering travelogue, Morris relates both his inner and outer struggles and adventures as he criss-crosses the western United States traveling to Rainbow Gatherings and music festivals, backpacking alone in the wilderness, and visiting assorted communal settings. Unknowingly, he follows the path of Chris McCandless, subject of the book Into the Wild, as he hitchhikes the same stretch of highway through Canada and Alaska taken by McCandless just a few months earlier to a different fate. Documenting the challenges faced by many young people in today’s world, this book is both a gripping adventure tale, and a wise and genuine account of one such person’s process of spiritual awakening and discovery.

This visionary narrative, reminiscent of Robert Bach’s Illusions, follows the spiritual initiation of a white Christian into the Native American tradition and reveals a deeper Christian impulse that is consistent with Native American wisdom. Set in the western United States on an unnamed Indian reservation, the novel describes the seeker, a White Man who has come to the home of Native American medicine man, Flying Eagle. Through Flying Eagle’s teachings on a variety of subjects, the protagonist awakens to a new understanding of self, the nature of truth, and the role of a warrior for truth. With reverberations of Carlos Castaneda, Screaming Hawk becomes not just a novel of traditional and Native American religion, but also a compelling spiritual journey for its readers.

Bradford Keeney

Bradford Keeney’s extraordinary odyssey began in 1963, when, as a respected professor, psychotherapist, and author, he found himself suddenly visited, without the influence of hallucinogenic drugs or shamanic teachings, by remarkable visions of “shamanic realities” that called him to some of the most remote areas of the world. Shepherded on his journey by the spirit of the Oglala Sioux medicine man Black Elk (whose time of death was virtually the same as Keeney’s birth), Keeney was initiated into the healing practices of tribal peoples in North and South America, of Christians in the African-American sanctified church, of songomas, sanusis, and healers throughout Africa (among them the bushmen of the Kalahari and the Zulu of Southern Africa), and finally one of the only living masters of a pre-Buddhist healing art in Japan. Illuminated with the author’s own photographs of his life among the shamans, and blessed by elder healers throughout the world (who passed along not only their sacred knowledge but their spirit guides as well), Keeney’s story gives voice to the mind, heart, and soul of shamanic healing.

Mary Elizabeth Thunder

Abandoned by her mother when she was three years old, Mary Elizabeth Thunder survived abuse, a broken marriage, and a heart attack to become one of the most highly esteemed leaders in the Native American movement -healer, visionary, teacher, and chosen successor in a native tradition. Her story is also the true tale of a remarkable elder, Grandma Grace Spotted Eagle, who adopted her and guided her to spiritual awakening as a messenger. At once harrowing and uplifting, this memoir takes us from her early life and experiences with the legendary elders Chief Leonard Crow Dog, Wallace Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder, through a near-death experience that utterly transformed her, to nine remarkable years spent traveling America by van, culminating in her inclusion in the Sun Dance, one of the world’s oldest and most venerable initiation ceremonies. Intimate, painfully honest, essentially and overwhelmingly spiritual, this is a book about a woman’s quest for meaning amid two cultures and a compelling account of the visionary underpinnings of Native American life.
