When American sociologist and wellness expert Tanya Pergola first visited Tanzania and Maasailand, she became startlingly aware that she was in a place and with people who could teach her something profound. She sensed that lodged within the colorful and beautiful rituals and ceremonies of the indigenous Maasai people were gems of wisdom that could be harvested and shared as antidotes for our increasingly complex, stressful, and often enigmatic modern lives.
Dr. Pergola undertook a ten-year apprenticeship with Maasai traditional healers, led by her guide Lekoko Ole Sululu, in exchange for implementing sustainable development projects in Tanzania. InTime is Cows she shares the mind-body-spirit medicine of the Maasai, the proud pastoral people of East Africa.
In a voice that is at once crystal clear and spiritually alive - one that thousands around the world have already come to know in her talks and classes on wellness, yoga, and nature healing - her insight, inspiration, and empathy are present on every page as she shares her own knowledge and the wisdom of the Maasai compassionately and wholly.
Enriched with photographs, stories and suggested practice tips, Time is Cows is a handbook to help you simplify your life as you uncover its profound meaning.
About the author:
Born in the United States, Tanya holds a PhD in Sociology and Social Psychology. She is a Chopra Certified Vedic Master and has apprenticed with traditional Maasai healers in East Africa for over ten years.

Freddie was raised on faith. It's in her blood. Yet rather than seeking solace from the Almighty when she loses her husband of many years, she enters a state of quiet contemplation until her daughter, and then her sister, each come home with a host of problems of their own, and her solitude is brought to an end. As Freddie helps her daughter and sister deal with their troubles, her own painful past a wretched childhood at the hands of an unbalanced, pious mother begins to occupy her thoughts more than ever, as does Anna, the grandmother she s always wished she d known better. Freddie feels that she and Anna are connected, not just through blood but through the raising of difficult daughters, and it s a kinship that makes her wonder what unseen forces have shaped her life. With all that to hand, a new family crisis rears its head and it forces Freddie to confront the questions she s asked so many times: What does it mean to believe in God? And does God even care?"
