Overview

This is a story of creation and change, of prophecy and fulfillment in the world we all journey through--a world the Hopi call koyaanisqatsi, or "world out of balance." A heartfelt and reverential view of the Hopi Way as seen by one of the few white men to have lived within this ancient culture, Meditations with the Hopi imparts to us the essence of the Hopi experience--from child's first cry to soul's departure, each transition celebrated in song and ritual.
