The Gathering of the Healers: The Healing of the Nation

This is the second in the series after "Rasta Heart: A Journey Into One Love." It chronicles that events that lead up to "The Gathering of the Healers: The Healing of the Nation" press conference held at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica on Feb. 4, 2002. Authors Robert & Julia Roskind and 7 well-known Jamaican teachers of love (healers) invited the citizens of Jamaica to be the first country ever to heal itself with one love. Since then, the murder rate, which had been climbing for 14 straight months, has dropped 20%.

In this new book, you will meet many of Jamaica's best known personalities, including: Mama B Marley Booker (Bob Marley's mother), Rita Marley (Bob's wife), Julian Marley, Damien Marley (Junior Gong), Kymani Marley, Stephanie Marley, Sharon Marley, Luciano, Denroy Morgan (Morgan Heritage), Tony Rebel, Mortimo Planno (Bob's Rasta mentor), Dr. Dennis Forsythe, Antonnette Haughton (Founder of Jamaica's UPP party), Prime Minister Patterson and Opposition Leader Edward Seaga. An amazing journey! An amazing event!

For four years, Robert and Julia Roskind traveled Jamaica and brought forward the island's message of One Love through their books, Rasta Heart: A Journey Into One Love and The Gathering of the Healers.

Now they take another spiritual journey into the Native American heart of One Love - unconditional love for all humanity. With them, visit the Havasupai in their ancient village on the floor of the Grand Canyon, a six-hour trek from the closest road. Listen in as they reason with elders of the Hopi, one of the most spiritual and culturally-intact tribes, whose sacred Ceremonial Cycle holds all human wisdom. Visit the "Valley of the Vapors," where many tribes once gathered in peace. Join them as they host One Love concerts and events throughout Jamaica and Indian reservations in the U.S. - spreading a message of love and forgiveness, following in the footsteps of The Peacemaker of the ancient Iroquois Confederacy.

Welcome home to the Beauty Path!

RASTA HEART: A Journey Into One Love

Since his passing in 1981, Bob Marley's music, like tribal drumming, has been sending out a message of love and freedom for all humanity. Twenty years later, Julia, Alicia and Robert Roskind traveled to Jamaica to learn more about Rastafari-the people and philosophy that inspired his music. Their life-changing odyssey through the towns, villages and mountains of this beautiful island, revealed not only the Rasta way of life but an ancient mystery as well. "RASTA HEART" is truly a journey into One Love.

"Riveting... An incredible adventure that reveals the true essence of Rasta!" Dr. Dennis Forsythe author of "Rastafarians:The Healing of the Nations."

Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie: Seven Years in the Counterculture

The counterculture of the 60s and 70s has been viewed as everything from naive to hedonistic. However, most of these views were formed by observing the movement from the outside. "Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie" offers a vastly different perspective, one developed from within.
After graduating college in 1968, Robert Roskind hit the road for seven years. Roskind's travels lead him into the heart of the counterculture--to Esalen Institute, Tassajara Hot Springs, Big Sur, Vancouver Island, the communes of Oregon and North Carolina, Altamont Pop Festival, Mt. Shasta, the Haight-Ashbury and the "motherland"--Northern California.

His personal odyssey, sometimes profane and funny, sometimes profound and serious, reveals this tumultuous era as a cultural and spiritual renaissance that birthed many of the solutions to problems humanity now faces.

"This look back, while very personal, is also the archetype for a whole generation whose quest for freedom and the meaning of life led to some mind-blowing experiences."--Skip Stone author of "Hippies from A to Z"

Paperback: 226 pages, One  Love Press, December 2002, ISBN:1565220730
