Native American Healing Meditations (CD)
In Native American tradition, everything has a spirit -- even an illness of injury. "If we know how to listen," teaches Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, "our health issues will often reveal the secret to their own healing." On Native American Healing Meditations, Dr. Mehl-Madrona offers insights and practices to help you access the healing power of the spirit world. Drawing from his experience as both a medical doctor and a lifelong student of traditional Cherokee and Lakota medicine, he presents four guided practices based on indigenous wisdom:
-Finding Your Spirit Guide -- calling upon your unseen allies and ancestors for protection, guidance, and healing energy
-Heroic Journey -- rewrite your life story to one of greater health and happiness
-Dialogue with the spirit of an illness
-Traveling to the Future -- receiving valuable information from your older self
While Western medicine often sees health care as a battle against a disease or injury, Native American tradition holds that true healing comes through dialogue -- with our afflictions, our spiritual allies, and our own innate wisdom. With gentle guidance and a rich understanding of tribal medicine, Dr. Mehl-Madrona offers you four essential practices for tapping into the resrources of the spirit world with Native American Healing Meditations.
