Cherokee Traditional Indigenous Healing 2 Day Workshop

Learn the art of traditional, indigenous healing methods from the ancient North American Cherokee tradition from expert healers Lewis Mehl-Madrona and Barbara Mainguy over a 2 day workshop focusing on Cherokee Bodywork. Almost all aboriginal cultures had direct, hands-on, methods of healing. Examples include Hawai’ian Iomilomi, and Thai massage. Evidence is accumulating that American and European osteopathy owes its origins to aboriginal people, especially the Pawnee. The Cherokee were no exception to the art of touching the body for healing means. This workshop will introduce participants to this form of healing. We will review various struggles for touching the body, including deep pressure, rocking, shaking, running energy meridians, mobilization and breath work – covering the body from head to toe. We will review what is similar and different about Cherokee bodywork from other systems of osteopathic or “manipulative therapy”. We will consider how techniques are similar to the cultures that produce them. We will consider especially the Cherokee emphasis on breath as a means to restore spirits to all parts of the body, and its consistency with many aboriginal languages in which the words for spirit and breath and the same.   Workshop will include: Supervised practice with the methods of Cherokee bodywork Practice with Cherokee breath work Examples of incorporating imagery and dialogue with bodywork Considerations of the importance of ceremony and ritual and intent in bodywork Manipulative medicine as a means of dialogue with the body Cherokee use of acupuncture and its energy meridian, use of crystals, and energy medicine We will then end with a prayer ritual to ask for a blessing on the work we have done and have yet to do.   The Facilitators Lewis is passionate about celebrating and utilizing traditional, indigenous healing methods in his work as a traditional healer and family physician, psychologist, psychiatrist and geriatrician. He is Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine and is a Faculty Physician at the Eastern Maine Medical |Center Family Medicine Residency. Barbara is the Education Director of Coyote Institute and is creative arts therapist and documentary filmaker. Together they bring a dynamic approach to learning and celebrating the art of healing with respect to ancient culture.

Remap Your Mind The Narrative Approach 1 Day Workshop

One-Day Practical Workshop mapping your stories and ways to create a new map of the mind to take home and use for yourself. In the Lakota worldview, our identity arises from a swarm of stories that surround our bodies, which is called The Nagi. This swarm consists of all the stories that have influenced us, are told by us, and are told by others about us. A part of every teller of every story lives in that swarm. Some stories are told more other than others, and, the more often a story is told, the stronger it becomes. This is exactly what happens in our nervous system. The more often a circuit or a connection between neurons (synapse) is used, the stronger it becomes and the faster information moves across it. Stories are templates for behaviour. We perform stories as actions in the world. We have a repertoire of characters from all the stories living in our Nagi. We bring out these characters as needed to perform the roles required of us. To the extent that our character and our stories about how that character should behave match the requirements of our actual worldly situation, we are successful in negotiating our social landscape. To the extent they do not match, we experience friction in our self-world interface. In this workshop, we have a number of exercises to facilitate participants’ finding the stories in their Nagipi, the characters who told those stories, and the stories and characters that are strongest and most ready at hand to use. Content of the DayWe show how to make a map of all the stories and their tellers. Then we discuss some ways in which we change or re-map our minds by strengthening characters, adding characters and stories, and forming coalitions among voices. We show how to make a new map of the mind through exercises that people can take home and use. Dialogical & Narrative Approach to Psychotherapy This worldview is similar to what is called the Dialogical Self in European writing, championed by people like Mikhail Bakhtin and Hubert-Hermans. In our approach to psychotherapy, we make maps of our stories and their tellers to help us understand the dialogue occuring within our minds. Meet the Facilitators Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona and Barbara Mainguy are authors of the recently released book, Remapping Your Mind, which is the subject of this workshop. They’ve developed a dialogical and narrative approach to psychotherapy, which they have humorously called indigious-inspired, body orientated, narrative and social psychotherapy. Lewis trained at Stanford and Barbara at Concordia University. Lewis is also a Family Medicine Faculty at the Eastern Maine Medical Centre Family Medicine Residency and Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the University of New England in Maine, USA.
