BOOKS

"My writings and collages take integral meaning as they stem
from dreams, ancestral memories and the many voices of Spirit.
Creativity has brought healing and deeper understanding to my life.
If I am not creating, I am stagnating, and a stagnating soul
is a starving soul."

The Boy with a Tree Growing from his Ear & Other Stories
by marijo moore
$14.00 (includes shipping and handling)

“This unique and beautiful collection of stories calls upon the reader to see the
world, and existence, as something much more mysterious, and strange, than we are accustomed to, or are willing to believe in. Moore's work has always offered this challenge. Here, she tells us, is a book that is "an assemblage that chose its own parts..." The results are stunning. The stories insist that we really look at the power and wonder-and sometimes terror - of a universe that we are only beginning to understand; that we hardly know at all.
- Doris Seale
Founder of Oyaté, author of Blood Salt, Ghost Dance, and co-editor of Through Indian Eyes
and A Broken Flute

“MariJo Moore is a storyteller, relating dreams and memories, hopes and ironies of her mountain heritage. If you listen to her telling you may find her stories become your own, stories you need but had forgotten. For these are stories of the larger community of the imagination, of pain and curiosity, the surprises and satisfaction of our humanity.”
- Robert Morgan
Author of Brave Enemies and Boone: A Biography

"MariJo Moore's magical stories evoke the mystery of the WNC Mountains. Her writing makes you search deep down for something you know is there, but you're not sure you can find...or if you should."
- Leisa Stamey
Branch Manager, Enka/Candler Library, North Carolina

“MariJo Moore's mesmerizing medley of characters, both delightful and disturbing, reach out from the pages and draw you into their worlds; worlds tinged with bitter-sweet southern appeal, woven from the ancient threads of an indigenous storyteller, and painted with a precisely portioned pallet of shades, both dark and light.”
- Amy Krout-Horn
Author of Transcendence and My Father's Blood

Indigenous Thoughts Concerning the Universe

Dedicated to Vine Deloria Jr

Exploring Quantum physics in relation to Indigenous peoples' understanding of the spiritual universe, this anthology includes writings from 40 Native writers from various nations.

"Unraveling the Spreading Cloth of Time, MariJo Moore and Trace
DeMeyer's brilliant anthology, explores an uncanny tension between
Indigenous understandings of a moral, interconnected universe and the edges
of western science and philosophy that -in time- come to the same
conclusion."

A Book of Ceremonies & Spiritual Energies Thereof
$25.00 (includes shipping and handling)

From the Introduction:

Humankind and the cosmos are deeply connected. There isn't humankind's existence and the animal and plant kingdom's existence: It is our existence. Humankind is not a superior species, but interrelated with all species, and connected to the universe, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. There are many ways to gain knowledge, to heal, and to gain a deeper understanding of spirituality: One is to engage in ceremony.

These are personal ceremonies. The five cards included are not to be drawn but to be used specifically with these particular ceremonies.

…true happiness comes when one no longer desires or needs but trusts one’s total life to Spirit. This is a feat many of us will not reach during this lifetime, so I am blessed to offer these ceremonies from Spirit. Use them wisely and with deepening respect.

a book of spiritual wisdom for all days
$23.00 (includes shipping and handling)

Introduction

The entries* in this compilation are based upon spiritual intuitive consultations from the past twenty years. I am gifted with spiritual insight, the ability to be a “medium” for those who have passed over, and have had the opportunity to work with many people who have come to me to ask for guidance, spiritual support, and to contact their loved ones. Though it is impossible for any spiritual medium to claim accuracy a hundred percent of the time, I am blessed with a gift strong enough to be able to be used by Spirit** to help others in times of need.
Some of the subjects in these entries were once considered “taboo to discuss.” That time has passed. We are now in a spiritual shift where we must deal with everything that has happened to us, consider the possibilities of future happenings, and glean wisdom from these to help us continue to thrive in our spiritual progress on this planet.
I do not claim to be an expert on any one subject. I do not claim to be anything other than who I am: a woman who has the uncanny ability to listen to the other side and bring forth messages. I give credit to Spirit for this gift, and for allowing me to be a vessel.
Although broken at times, I am willing to keep going forward during the mending.
The quotes at the beginning of each entry are from my collective writings – some old, some new.
My objective is to help those who can be helped with these insights.
Again, I thank Spirit for allowing me to share.

MariJo Moore, 2011
In the mountains of western North Carolina

** Please note there are four weekly entries for each of the twelve months. I am aware that some months sometimes have five weeks, but in order to use this book during any year, I suggest during the months with five weeks, you choose one of the four entries and use it for two weeks.
** Spirit is used synonymously with God, Creator, Universe and All There Is.

"I am so enjoying your new book: A Book of Spiritual Wisdom - for all days. It so far has been exactly what I have needed every week; when I read each week's guidance, I say how did she know that's exactly what I am thinking, doing, and need!? I find it so helpful and I am doing the homework. It is great!"
- Suzie Engel RN and Healing Touch Facilitator

when the Dead Dream
$25.00 (includes shipping and handling)

I cannot believe anyone with any degree of perception can read this book
and not be changed by it. Changed, certainly, in the way they see people
who are different, but also in relation to all that is around them, to time,
life and the universe, and ultimately how they view themselves.
-Doris Seale
Author of Blood Salt, Ghost Dance, co-editor/ author of Through Indian Eyes,
A Broken Flute, and co-founder of Oyate

One of the deep pleasures of reading is giving oneself over to a gifted storyteller for the duration of the trip. MariJo Moore eases our transition into her several worlds and then holds us there, willing us to travel roads that are winding, difficult and revelatory. When the Dead Dream may be her masterwork—a sinuous and stony path where we encounter monsters as well as jewels. It is not for the faint-hearted and not to be missed.

Confessions of a Madwoman
$13.00 (includes shipping and handling)

Intensity. From “creativity is existence” to “my mind is. . .a wild bird” to “the last fire in hell/ smoldering” to “I want my divided soul to erupt/ dance naked around these stones.” Intensity you can’t avoid! Because it is determination, persistence, struggle and endurance, passion, creative fervor—“fires of creativity”—and exaltation of “how it is to be loved by a madwoman.” I might as well say it is truly an experience to read MariJo Moore’s Confessions of a Madwoman!
­ Simon J. Ortiz
Author of The Good Rainbow Road and Beyond the Reach of Time and Change

To be a poet is a madness circling one’s soul, a constant companion. Words bring MariJo to this beginning and ending, without hesitation she flies with wings un-fluttered by manmade events...to be true to her words are to live and be.
- Emoke B’Racz
Imre Margit lanya, poet, translator of Katalin Ladik

Moore's ancient instincts flash through these poems with a blood thirst for lawless imagination, the madness born of passion, and the indigenous honesty of lovely wilderness creatures.

Western North Carolina Columnist of the Year 2003"

Birthed From Scorched Hearts: Women Respond to War
$14.00 (includes shipping and handling)

Book recommendation from Women Living Under Muslim Law (WLUML):

Award-winning author MariJo Moore asked women from around the world to consider the devastating nature of conflict—inner wars, outer wars, public battles, and personal losses. Their answers, in the form of poignant poetry and essays, examine war in all its permutations, beginning in 60 CE and continuing into the 21st century, from Ireland to Iraq and everywhere in between. With contributions from both well-known and first-time writers, this moving anthology encompasses a wide range of voices—a Blitz evacuee, an ex-slave, an incarcerated mother, former military personnel, survivors of domestic violence, those who have battled drugs and disease, and many other courageous women willing to share their unique and timeless insight on the realities of war.
