"As always, grandfather Rick took us on and through our issues; mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. A superb workshop!" DS, Coral Springs, FL
The Medicine Shield is a tool that can help you understand your life patterns, especially those that work against you. Once you understand the underlying cause of any given negative behavior, and decide what you do want in your life, you then establish a working relationship with one or more Animal Medicine Helper.
This information is built into a physical shield, which you will learn how to use to achieve your goals. A Medicine Shield is a tool that will help you develop singleness of purpose, the necessary consciousness to redirect old patterns by consistently focusing on what you do want, rather than trying to directly eliminate self-defeating habits.
"Medicine Shields again hit the nail on the head for me!...The workshop was extremely informative, fun and in my opinion an extremely important and useful tool for everyday use." LGK, West Palm Beach, FL
Your Shield will become an object of beauty, something you'll want to look at and to work with: It won't be a "chore" to spend time with your Shield and the Medicine Helper(s) that you will have created a relationship with. It can be adapted to many uses. Once you learn how it works, you can make a Shield for virtually any good purpose.

He was named Cante Lute (Schan-tay Lou-tuh) by the spirits through his sundance chief, which means Red Heart. He is a 17-year sundancer and has been traditionally trained and authorized to lead ceremonies, such as initi (purification lodge), prayer with the Canunpah (Pipe), drum healing and so forth.
