Animal Medicine Monday – Thunderbird

roadrunner_1280

The bringer of thunder, lightning and rain; awakener of the voice of our Hokkshideh (our Higher Self); keeper of memory. The thunderbird is the over-soul of all winged ones and thus is able to communicate with all the winged ones. It teaches mastery of elemental alchemy. The thunderbird is the mythological equivalent to the phoenix, the dragon, the peyote waterbird and is a cousin to the roadrunner.

On Tuesday August 9, Warrior Spirit Lodge hosts An Evening of Maori Teachings with Atarangi and Maori Healers from Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Maori Healers became widely known through the work of master teacher Hohepa Delamere, fondly known as Papa Joe and Atarangi Muru Maori Healer.  Atarangi continues to travel abroad and provide other Maori Healers with the opportunity to share their services at international levels. She is now one of Maoridoms most respected healers.  Her work is deep, unique, uplifting, enlivening and rewarding physically and spiritually. She is an example of the ‘living works’ of ancestral teaching.

The Warrior Spirit Lodge in Phoenix presents a special class working with Abundance on Tuesday, June 14, 2011.

This is the third of three classes on wealth and abundance, building on the 15 faces of wealth and last month’s abundance mesa working. The class will be discussing this wheel with the intent of exploring how to walk with more perspective, balance and joy.  The class will include a purification ceremony.

For more information, contact Warrior Spirit Lodge.

You can also read more about Abundance on the DTMMS web site:

Abundance is the naturalness of the Universe. The more one gives, the more abundance returns. This is not a myth or mystery. It is the Law of Return. The mineral, plant and animal world all know this.  More…

Healing in the Sweet Medicine SunDance Way

When someone talks about “healing,” what do you think of?  Recovering from a cold? Curing disease? Getting better after surgery? 

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path healing paradigm, the healed, or healthy, person is not just someone whose body is free from disease. True health encompasses our emotions, mind, spirit, and sexuality as well as our body. When we speak of healing, we mean coming into balance in all our aspects as well as with the natural world, into alignment with Sacred Law, and into alignment with one’s true self.

The Sweet Medicine Sundance Path healing paradigm is a shamanic way of approaching healing.  However, it is not a “traditional” way: it incorporates knowledge from several shamanic paths as well as western science.  It is a multifaceted approach to healing that addresses all aspects of us as humans: emotional, mental, spiritual, and sexual/soul force as well as the physical. 

Some of the basic premises in this healing paradigm are:

  • Each of us heals himself or herself – no one else can do it for us. This requires taking responsibility for our own healing (and our own lives!).
  • We heal through proper balance and alignment.
  • Disease and illness are teachers that we call in to learn some particular thing.  Understanding this, and where we are in our pattern of learning, is critical to our healing.
  • Healing can take other forms than the return of the physical body to health.

Our path offers a variety of techniques and ceremonies for those who desire healing.  Training in our healing paradigm is part of years 3 and 4 of the Red Lodge Longhouse program.  Both are available in a variety of locations around the world.

Visit the DTMMS web site for more information about our healing paradigm, or contact the DTMMS office or the Phoenix healing team.
