Essential Training in Native American Healing Wisdom
A Lakota prophecy tells of a day when Westerners will join Native wisdom-keepers to create a new, integrated vision of healing. Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona believes that day has arrived. With The Spirit of Healing, this physician and lifelong student of Native American spirituality invites you to discover healing practices informed by both modern medical and psychiatric knowledge and the “narrative medicine” of traditional healers.
“Western medicine provides many tools for doctors and professionals,” teaches Dr. Mehl-Madrona. “But in the Native approach, we learn how to become our own best healers.”
The Art of Healing through Story
Mind-body medicine has shown how important our thoughts are in determining our health. In tribal practice, this is expressed in the power of story—when we learn to listen to the stories underneath an illness, we can illuminate the path to healing. Dr. Mehl-Madrona reveals time-honored techniques and ceremonies for calling on the strength of our ancestors, community, and helping spirits so that we can re-create our life’s story as one of wholeness and health.
Practical Guidance for Restoring Harmony and Balance to Your Life
Native medicine focuses on enhancing the underlying harmony of our lives, not only within our bodies, but in our relationships to each other, the environment, and the spirit world. Offering over six hours of stories, insights, and practices, Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona provides indispensible guidance for integrating Native American wisdom into your life with The Spirit of Healing.
What is Metaphysics ?
Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that studies the first principles of being, identity and change, space and time, causality, necessity and possibility. It includes questions about the nature of consciousness and the relationship between mind and matter. The word “metaphysics” comes from two Greek words that, together, literally mean “after or behind or among [the study of] the natural”. It has been suggested that the term might have been coined by a first century CE editor who assembled various small selections of Aristotle’s works into the treatise we now know by the name Metaphysics (μετὰ τὰ φυσικά, meta ta physika, lit. ‘after the Physics ’, another of Aristotle’s works).
Metaphysics studies questions related to what it is for something to exist and what types of existence there are. Metaphysics seeks to answer, in an abstract and fully general manner, the questions:
- What is there?
- What is it like?
Topics of metaphysical investigation include existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. Metaphysics is considered one of the four main branches of philosophy, along with epistemology, logic, and ethics.
