Yep. Great article. Thank you. I had a Native American friend, and a Veteran, who shared his own experiences and then introduced me to some of the practices and ways of the Native Americans. So helpful. So healing to have had the honor and then instruction. Not to mention the stories he told. Of his own journey, so to speak, and experiences. As well as some of the more sacred ones…..the stories. It came at such a perfect time in my own journey too. I was still tapering off my last medication and had just left psychiatry behind. New practices, new paradigms. Yes, we do, have much to learn from older traditions. I agree. I think it’s important to add, that we should also respect the older traditions and peoples……before we begin to share their practices and traditions. Let them guide us, if you will, ask permission, etc. Otherwise we risk offending. At least with our Native American friends. I don’t know much about the Maori culture. Yet, as I am hoping to learn more. Thanks again!
