Lessons from the Sweat Lodge

That shamans and healers struggle with their own learnings is news to many people. Yet, my best teachers have freely shared their own struggles and learnings with me. Their willingness to be "just another human being" has felt like a great gift. Their persistence in overcoming life's challenges has been, and continues to be, both a reminder of their, and my, humanity, and a source of inspiration. Their lives remind me, "Things are more complex, and interesting, than they seem."
