Book Description: "A Man Among the Helpers" is the unique story of one man's journey into the incredible world of Native American Spirituality. The author was an outsider, raised in modern society but was still welcomed with open arms into this ancient way of life. For 17 years he was taught the healing practices of the Lakota that can be traced back to the very foundations of the Earth. He was educated in these traditions and then expected to fully explain these concepts to the ceremonial participants. This book describes the mentoring process, the Native American concepts, the philosophies and actual ceremonies from a modern perspective. The power of the medicine wheel, the power of prayer, the responsibility of mankind, the sacred gifts to human beings, and the "most important thing to know" are included in this book! "A Man Among the Helpers" is a continuation of the author's responsibility to preserve these ancient ways for all. Within the text great wisdom and teachings from the Grandfather Nation are preserved. The information contained here is for each person with the desire and heart to find their own Vision.
