Ancient teaching stories from the earth, together with meditations and step-by-step guides to sourcing your own tales from the spirits of the ancestors.
Throughout time, indigenous cultures have used storytelling as a way of spreading important teachings to the tribe. Much of our own rich, ancient heritage has been lost over the years, eroded with the coming of mainstream religions and new ideas, yet those teachings and stories are still there, waiting to be rediscovered and told.
Through years of working with the spirits of the land, shamanic healer, crafter and teacher Taz Thornton has gathered together a bounty of beautifully crafted stories from our own forgotten past.
These teaching stories have been shared directly by the spirits of our ancestors, who have long been waiting for new story weavers to carry these threads from the past into the future.


Teaching stories are a part of many traditions. Jesus used them. Native Americans passed their teaching stories from generation to generation. Sufi stories make us both think and smile. Taz Thornton's delightful book Whispers From The Earth is a goldmine of stories for teachers, motivational speakers, healers and clergymen — regardless of who they are targeting. Thornton's easy writing style also makes this marvelous resource a pleasure to read, just for its entertainment value. I very much enjoyed it. ~ Tolly Burkan, founder of the international firewalking movement, teacher and best-selling author

It is always a pleasure and something of a revelation to a read new book by a great spiritual teacher like Taz Thornton. She has been gifted with two of the most important qualities a true teacher can possess - integrity and genuine insight. I discover something new about the material and the invisible world every time I am privileged to read something she has written and I can honestly say that I gain a new perspective on life from her work that few in the esoteric tradition can offer. ~ Paul Roland author of I Remember Dying and Meditation Solutions

'Whispers of the Earth' is filled with inspiring stories that help to light our way as we follow our soul's journey and life adventure. Taz Thorton is a brilliant and gifted storyteller! ~ Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Walking in Light: the Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life

Thank you for the stories I feel much creative "shooting" occurring here. I think the project you are working on is very worthwhile and important for us all at this time. One root of the word "story" is "storehouse" i.e. stories are storehouses of knowledge for the deep imagination and those stories that survive through the generations have great truths within them that can serve as guidance and nourishment for our inner journeys. I love the passion and commitment you have to this work and I look forward to re-reading the stories you have sent me for my own pleasure. ~ Howard Malpas, Warrior In The Heart Foundation

Throughout history stories have been a crucial means of learning and growing. They have been told around hearths all over the earth since ancient times, keeping the wisdom teachings alive, and passing on the knowledge of land and ancestors. Taz Thornton has written and collated new stories, based in these lands, that contribute to keeping an old tradition alive and well. ~ Chris Lüttichau, founder of Northern Drum Shamanic Centre and author of Animal Spirit Guides: Discover your power animal and the shamanic path
