This week we welcome Wabun Wind as our guest. She is a journalist and author, and had the distinct privilege of being "medicine helper" for nearly 25 years to Sun Bear, the Chippewa visionary who formed The Bear Tribe Medicine Society. Together, they wrote many books on Native American spiritual beliefs, and conducted Medicine Wheel gatherings all over the world, welcoming people from every culture and from every walk of life to become members of The Bear Tribe. It was Sun Bear's vision of the future - that all people, regardless of race or gender. could come together in peace and harmony as one big family Tribe that honored the earth and all our relations. On this Eve of a New Age, it is fitting that we examine our own vision for our future, and remember the beautiful vision that Sun Bear held for humanity.
Marlise Wabun Wind, M.S., is the author of ten non-fiction books, with over two million copies in print worldwide in many languages. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree in international communications from George Washington University. She is a lifelong student of cross-cultural healing, complementary and holistic medicine, and wellness. One of her books is about integrative healing, and several others are about cross-cultural healing techniques, comparative philosophies, religions and spirituality.
Ms. Wind was searching for an alternative to the surgical treatments for an arthritic ankle when she was referred to Dr. Shiple, and it was through him that she learned about RIT and underwent successful treatment. Her enthusiasm over the results of her experience led her to collaborate with Dr. Shiple on Regenerative Healing For Life.
Because of her own knowledge of the physical limitations of other illnesses, and pain, Ms. Wind has become an advocate for RIT and related non-invasive treatments. She has lectured widely on topics related to integrative healing, complementary and holistic medicine, and wellness.
She is currently working on several other projects, including a novel and a spiritual adventure memoir, as well as four other non-fiction titles concerning ceremony and celebrations, relationships, parenting healthy children, and “mother sense.”
