"The drum will change your life.. If you add intentions and prayers, dance and ceremony, we can change the world."
I have been a naturopathic physician for 22 years. I entered medical school in the early 1990's while living in Oregon in a time when the music of Pearl Jam and Nirvana was playing live in the local theatres and pubs of Portland and Seattle. There was a transformation happening particularly in the Northwest corner of America. Holistic medicine was also on the rise and ready to explode into our culture powered by the healing power of nature. The 80's were dead and we were breaking free into a brave new world remembering our roots.
Books have a funny way of finding us. "Bury My Heart At Wounded Me" found me. I needed to take a year off of med school and do a bit of soul searching. Heading straight for the Dakotas, I ended up on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation. It's a place where an ancient ocean still exists in the wind. The land takes a breath. Invisible forces of air circulate and create rolling waves of prairie grass. As you pass over the Cheyenne River, you enter the reservation. You can feel the bridge vibrate through the spinning tires of the car caused by the deafening sound of crickets. The smell of sunflowers and sage permeate the evening air. This is Holy Ground you enter and you better be on your best behavior. More to come... Because life is a process.. Stay tuned
