A Lakota prophecy tells of a day when Westeners 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 tradtional healers.

What a gift to listen to an American Indian elder teach Native Wisdom. Imparted with humbleness and compassion for the greater good of the listener to grow through storytelling, & facilitated visualizations.
As a predominantly acculturated urban American Indian Woman, this has been another way of receiving spiritual & cultural navigation of my people.
Dr. Mehl-Madrona so wisely has offered these teachings for all to learn from. A rare sharing of traditional knowledge that is good medicine for all.
I loved this recording. The feeling of it is in a conversation style. Dr. Mehl-Medrona tells about his life, his experiences and people he has met along the way. With each new story he told, I could relate to him more, and his ideas were presented in such a way that they are very healing. The concepts and the methods discussed in this program are very accessible, and very welcome. Thank you Audible, and Dr Mehl-Medrona.
For me it was just what I needed, to listen as I fall asleep. He has an androgynous, whispering voice, which I hope would not detract anyone. I found it soothing, like a loving grandpa or auntie telling me the old ways, the stories, and about his life. I've listened to some parts several times.
Absolutely YES, Dr. Lewis Mehl shows true healing from the heart and mind and his compassion for others. A tool not all have.
Dr. Lewis Mehl, Please write more books. Thank you
Yes. There are great stories of healing using indigenous medicine and the complimentary relationships that exist between Western medicine and Native American medicine.
The narration is good and makes an easy listen. The parts where the author unnecessarily adds "filler" using guided imagery sessions would have been best left out.
