Doctor, healer, and author of the Coyote Medicine, part of the Coyote trilogy, Lewis Mehl-Madrona looks at healing through the lens of Lakota, Cherokee and Cree traditions as well as how these practices collide with traditional medicine. He earned his medical degree from Stanford University and has taught at a number of universities, including Maine Dartmouth, Union Institute and University, the University of Hawaii, the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Pittsburgh, along with his alma mater. He has authored over one-hundred academic papers and has held positions in hospitals as well as complimentary healthcare organizations. Lewis’s work focuses on the role of narrative and imagery in healing.
Lewis joins me today to discuss the power of indigenous wisdom and why he believes that people must be aware of the real history of indigenous people in this nation. He shares insights surrounding his creative process as an author, and why it is crucial to be disciplined in your writing instead of waiting for the inspiration to hit. Lewis also highlights several books and authors who have had a profound impact on him and his advice for writers seeking to improve their craft.
“Freedom comes from service. It’s not an ‘all for me and none for you’ freedom. It’s a collective freedom.” – Lewis Mehl-Madrona
