In Native American tradition, everything has a spirit—even an illness or 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—letting your health challenges tell you why they have come into your life and how to heal them
Traveling to the Future—receiving valuable information from your older self
While Western medicine often sees healthcare 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 essential practices for tapping into the resources of the spirit world withNative American Healing Meditations.
