Navajo – Walking in Beauty

Navajos believe in hozho or hozhoni -“walking in beauty” – a worldview in which all elements possess spirit and power, and everything in life is interconnected. A stone thrown into a pond can influence the life of a deer in the forest; a human voice and a spoken word can influence events around the world.

So Navajos make every effort to live in harmony and balance with everyone and everything. Their belief system sees sickness as the result of a loss of balance, of losing one’s way on the path of beauty.
