Lecture: Traditional Medicine for Modern Times:Native Healing Arts of the Americas with Robert Vetter, M.A.
Healing is a spiritual journey that connects us to the earth below and to the sky above. In North, Meso and South America, indigenous healing has been used for thousands of years to not only cure illness, but to provide purpose and meaning to the lives of both healers and those who are healed. These ancient ways are as relevant today as ever and help us to discover healing as a path to find our place in a mysterious universe.
Join us for this fascinating journey when you will be introduced to:
• Rituals and Ceremonies • Purification Through Heat (Sweat Lodge and Temazcal) • The Healing Power of Prayer • Music as Medicine • Herbal Medicines • Cultivating Personal Power in Nature • Indigenous Talk Therapy • Spiritual Cleansings
Robert Vetter is a cultural anthropologist whose fieldwork included work with his adopted grandfather Oliver Pahdopony, the last medicine man of the Comanches. Along with his adopted Kiowa uncle, Richie Tartsah, he authored the book Big Bow: The Spiritual Life and Teachings of a Kiowa Family. He is a practitioner of Mexican curanderismo (a traditional healing system found throughout Latin America) and is currently at work on a book on the topic.
