What we're about

As Barefoot Healers, we adopt a grassroots approach to the healing arts that people use to help heal themselves, friends, family, and community. We combine the intention of love with whatever skill and wisdom we have. More than a degree, profession, or license, we take a common vow of honor in the healing arts, respecting the hopes, rights, and needs of those seeking a healing. As Barefoot Healers, we take responsibility for our own health, and take interest in the health and wellbeing of all those within our sphere of influence.

We will come together on a regular basis as friends and warriors to strengthen ourselves and our communities and families. The only requirement for participation is a fiery desire to share your wisdom, knowledge, enthusiasm, and healing with others! Membership in a professional/skill community is not required ~
