War occurs in an altered state as does the wounding of body and soul. The experiences of war can only be understood from an altered state, and given this, their true healing comes through altered states. The medicinal use of altered states is the realm of the shaman. Our guest, Dr. Ed Tick specializes in using psycho-spiritual, cross-cultural, and international reconciliation practices to bring healing to veterans, communities and nations recovering from the traumas of war and violence.
Join us as Dr Tick speaks from his award-winning book War And The Soul about his groundbreaking work in healing of veterans. “We can create reconciliation and restoration practices that directly redress the wounds against life that oppress the veteran…Then the spirits that were loosed during the war—whether of the survivor or the slain—may find peace, meaning, and lifelong alliance. Then the veteran may make the return journey home and the healer too will be transformed.”
