8 Week Study of Good Medicine: Traditional Wisdom of The Cherokee taught by Chief Atsila

When people are truly at peace, they can be healthy in mind, body and spirit. When people seek to live in balance and harmony , in touch with nature and all that is, they can know what it is to be a real person.

This study is to give an understanding of what it means to walk the Red Road from the teachings of Eli Gatoga who was a Cherokee elder as well as of Scottish descent. Also, supplementing those teachings are those of the Lakota as was taught to Atsila from native elders who walked that road.  The teachings passed down by Eli are what he called: "Good Medicine" to mean anything that helps us stay healthy in our body, mind and spiritual life, those things that are good for usfrom the Native American perspective as he was taught many years ago.

The life of a person walking the Red Road is one of a lifetime of study.  You can not learn it from a book, it is an experiential road, not one of faith. It gives us an undrstanding of what it means when we say, "We are all Related".

Atsila is a Sacred Pipe carrier for the people and a Water Pourer in the traditional Lakota Sweat Lodge Ceremony.  It is her lifes mission to help others understand that the Sacred is all around us, if we open ourselves to it.
