A Cherokee physician, psychiatrist and psychologist, Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona wrote Coyote Medicine to share the experiences that he’d had with traditional healers. The biggest part of growing up with ceremonies, he says, is that you grow up believing in spirit; you grow up with this direct sense that God can help you; you grow up in a community of people who help each other – and that’s what he feels is so sorely lacking in the modern world.

Medical school didn’t believe in miraculous healing – it wasn’t normal to believe that God could heal people – but he took issue with that because that’s what he was raised with. So he strove to marry traditional medical practice with the wisdom of his ancestors. He introduces ceremony, rituals, and storytelling to his patients, which they adapt to make them meaningful to themselves. Dr. John MacCullum interviews Dr. Mehl-Madrona for Well Being.
