What Being Naked In The Snow Taught Me

7 years ago, during a rite of passage in a snowy Connecticut forest, I learned firsthand the power of cold and hot temperatures to transform us. I had been invited to spend some time with a traveling shaman, who we’ll call Juan, and his inner circle of friends for the weekend. I knew that anything was possible, but I never would have predicted the lesson I was about to receive. On the second day of my visit, I was sitting on the stone hearth of a warm fireplace, connecting with some very ... [Read more...]

Helping the Healers Who Help Us

A while back, we shared a powerful drumming ritual from one of our spiritual brothers, Dan Hull.  Despite the loss of use of his legs years ago, Dan has continued to heal many others through his powerful ceremonies. His dedication to spreading love and the teachings of the Red Road is as strong as ever. Over the years, one thing that hasn’t been quite as strong is Dan’s hand-controlled van, which allowed him to remain independent and physically reach many people to assist them... [Read more...]

You Are Your Greatest Ally

Human beings are incredible creatures, capable of doing so much good. Many folks spend their entire day giving to others—physical care, emotional support, intellectual ideas, and more—and they do it without a second thought. BUT, we “two-leggeds” are not always great at taking care of our own needs. We frequently prioritize other people and projects over our own basic care, whether that is spiritual support and nourishment, or something more immediate and physical. When it comes...

Wisdom From The Women Of Standing Rock

I was sitting in a coffee shop in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, the night it hit me: I had to go to Standing Rock to document all sides of the ongoing #NoDAPL fight. This has happened before, a film choosing me, rather than my choosing it. Also familiar was what happened just four days later, when I realized that the story I had set out to investigate wasn’t the one that needed to be told. The first person I contacted was Pearl Daniel-Means, whose Lakota name is Iyoyanbya Izanzan Win, or “Bright ... [Read more...]
