A book of balance : Kogi wisdom for a good life and thriving Earth / Lucas Buchholz ; translated by Fabienne Balmer ; edited and adapted by Jackson Gore.

Buchholz, Lucas, (author.). Balmer, Fabienne, (translator.). Gore, Jackson, (editor,, contributor.).


For centuries, the Kogi have lived in seclusion in Colombia's remote Sierra Nevadas, known as "the heart of the world." But in recent years, concerned by the environmental degradation they have experienced in their villages and forests, a few emissaries from the tribe emerged to bring an urgent and loving message to the West--advice on how to live in harmony with the earth.
