Jonathan Telfer, Editor, Writers' News and Writing Magazine, U.K, says, "Writing advice guides often tend to blur into each other, but not Moo of Writing, which takes a holistic approach to improve the writer’s life and creative process in a refreshingly different way. Unleash your inner cow and find your moos!"

The Moo of Writing process uses ... exercise ... relaxation ... meditation

This book contains the thirteen tenets of the Peacemaker's message combined with thirteen Pilgrimage Messages arranged in the order of the Cycles of Truth along with instructions for setting up a study circle.

The Peacemaker is an eleventh-twelfth century historical figure who ended constant warfare between the nations of the Haudenosaunee and united them into a confederacy of nations, commonly called the Iroquois Confederacy. Under the guidance of this spiritual leader they buried implements of war under the roots of the White Pine, the tree of peace. His words contain wisdom much needed in today's world.
