Archaeology of the Self

Easter Island

When we first begin to do conscious work on ourselves, we are self-centered.  There is so much to dig and explore.  Each succeeding layer reveals an earlier civilization, a different aspect of self, until the archaeologist self comes to the evidences of the original inhabitant of the site.  There we find our true natures, our authentic, natural selves.  There we find the light within the shadow, our shining and magnificence!

(Recently, archaeologists found that the statues of Easter Island, carved by the Rapa Nui people, are not just heads, but include full bodies as well.  To see the uncovered bodies of these magnificent statues, visit http://newsroom.ucla.edu/stories/easter-island-statues-revealed-234519)

Meeting These Challenges

leap

Our own inner awakening, or the Great Shamanic Work, begins our ability to meet these challenges.  We can no longer look outside ourselves for the quick solutions. We must go within and make the changes necessary to bring forth love, harmony and beauty.

As Within, So Without

We cannot create significant change on any level, particularly a planetary level, if we are not willing to make significant changes in ourselves.  Out of our individual stretch for excellence, self-healing, and accountability, we can live fulfilled, meaningful lives and take our place among the Rainbow Light Warriors who form the collective rallying force for the Gold Horse.

We are pioneers at the edge of a major leap in consciousness and evolutionary development.  The Hopi prophecies say we are in the process of moving into the Fifth World, and we are blessed with the divine opportunity to redefine that world.  Do we have the commitment, the courage, and the imagination to step up to the line and enlist in this most auspicious of opportunities, the challenge of becoming balanced humans?

Our Great Shamanic Work

expansion

The powers of the Twenty Count are the MAT spaces that empower us to become greater than the spaces we fill in order to have excellence. For there to be evolutionary growth, we must not only fill and become the space; our soul yearns to expand that space to make it greater.  This is our refinement of character, our Great Shamanic Work.

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.
