Steven Ash was born in Cornwall, England and grew up on Wikwamikong on Lake Huron – an Indian reservation in Ontario, Canada. A man of extraordinary abilities as a healer and shaman, he inherited these talents from his father Dr. Michael Ash, who was the reservation doctor and the first doctor to practice acupuncture in the UK. Steven studied Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, Tai Chi and Qi Kung and holds a doctorate in radiaesthesia.
His profound connection with Mother Earth and her plant and mineral kingdom has enabled him to gain extensive insight into the healing abilities of plants and crystals, and to use this knowledge in the continued development and refinement of the Rainbow Essences.
Steven carries the spirit name Tatanka Wanagi Wichasta – Buffalo Spirit Man – which was given to him by Eagle Man Ed McGaa. Steven’s vision and life mission is to help facilitate the return of the Rainbow Tribe as predicted by Black Elk, and in his work and through his life he teaches and shares the concept of the Rainbow Medicine Circle as a basis for a healthy, flourishing family and community.
Both Steven and Renata were adopted as spiritual grandchildren by Grandfather Wallace Black Elk and have been appointed as carriers of the Peace Pipe, an honor that is rarely bestowed on white people.
Rainbow Medicine Circle was founded by Steven & Renata Ash, a husband and wife team of therapists, international teachers and gifted healers who specialise in personal development, energy psychology and shamanism. Renata and Steven are recognised worldwide as experts in the field of energy medicine and have researched and worked with the human energy anatomy for over 20 years. Together they developed the Rainbow Essences – a new generation of flower and gemstone essences perfectly tuned to the human energy body and designed to help people embrace change and move through life’s challenges with more grace and ease. They are also the originators of the Golden Light Project, a powerful 13 day program for personal and global healing and transformation that has gained worldwide reputation for its effectiveness and no-nonsense approach to spiritual and personal growth.
