Coyote Medicine


What our grandfathers and grandmothers taught us was to be open to the miraculous.

As an old Dineh song from Arizona says:


I walk in beauty
Beauty is before me,
Beauty is above me,
Beauty is below me,
Beauty is around me,
I walk in beauty


The point of this is that we can never know with certainty that which is possible and that which is impossible. Our capacity to analyze and apprehend the world is so limited that our goal of "full knowledge" will never be realized.

~Lewis Mehl-Madrona, M.D., Ph.D.

Hi Raggedy! Since you don't have a Friday's Feast post this week, I will use this one to say thank you for stopping by and dining with me. I hope you'll come and visit me soon.

Just from the few posts of yours I have read, I like it here. Your blog seems to a sense of peacefulness and I like that!

Have a great weekend!

Thank you for sharing this--Native American medicine has always interested me. My mom's father's side of the family were Cherokees.

You always share things that reach out and touch me more than you are aware. Thank you my special friend. You are more than the "Cool One"
