Some common elements:

Holistic- every thing has a spirit (except things that are put through 'man'-made refining like canned foods and processed foods and materials).

No separation between four elements- mental, emotional, spiritual and physical.
Intersecting time oriented past, present future inextricably linked.
Life begins at conception- child's spirit is autonomous; is nurtured rather than molded

Everyone is born with certain gifts from the creator, i.e. healers, visionaries, leaders, teachers etc...

The purpose of life is to learn and constantly strive towards the spiritual through prayer and ceremony.
