He maintains a part-time private practice of family medicine and psychiatry and serves on the Board of Directors of the Coyote Institute for Studies of Change and Transformation.Lewis has been studying traditional healing and healers since his early days and has written about their work and the process of healing. His primary focus has been upon Cherokee and Lakota traditions, though he has also explored other Plains Cultures and those of Northeastern North America. His goal is to bring the wisdom of indigenous peoples about healing back into mainstream medicine and to transform medicine and psychology through this wisdom coupled with more European derived narrative traditions. He has written scientific papers in these areas and continues to do research. He writes a weekly (almost) blog on health and mental health for www.futurehealth.org. His current interests center around psychosis and its treatment within community and with non-pharmacological means, narrative approaches to chronic pain and its use in primary care, and further developing healing paradigms within a narrative/indigenous framework.

Dowsing is a very ancient Art and a Science used to find or search for anything or any information. Most people think of dowsers as those people who find underground water, using a forked stick. Dowsing is really much more than that. Historically, it was considered mysterious and magical and was primarily controlled by priests and medicine people. The mystery of all the ages is within all of you. This secret is the marvelous, miracle working power found in your own subconscious mind, or super conscious mind, the last place that most people would seek it. Some researchers have found that the muscles in a dowser's arm responding to information from the autonomic nervous system that is beyond the control of our conscious mind. That is why most dowsers claim to be receiving information from the unconscious mind or super conscious mind. Quantum physics has taught us that everything is ultimately energy and that all energy and matter vibrates. This allows for all kinds of communication, including the very faint but sensitive signals received by dowsers through tools such as L-Rods and Pendulums.

http://www.lighthousefengshui.com/ Marina Lighthouse is an expert in the Art of Balanced Living, the Art of Placement — the ancient and revered Art of Feng Shui. Marina Lighthouse believes people, places and even the things around us have energy and are connected in ways that are both seen and unseen. One influences the other and all react in ways that can be known if only one would pay close attention. She thinks a balanced life is a well-adjusted life and that luck, prosperity, success and happiness can be prepared for and encouraged - that an open mind, an open heart and open channels to creativity and prosperity do much to manifest the same. Through her very successful Los Altos business Harmony in Your Environment, Lighthouse helps corporations and small businesses, entrepreneurs and just plain folks identify and clear a path for the energy in their lives. “The very first thing I do when someone calls me for a Feng Shui consultation is I arrive and observe, then listen deeply. I listen a lot. The client is talking. The environment is talking. Feng Shui is all about observing, noticing, feeling. There are blatant energies, subtle energies. Sometimes, living and working, we lose a perspective on those. I observe subtleties, notice patterns. Marina Lighthouse is an intriguing blend of Western sensibility and Eastern mysticism. An artist by nature, a musician and healer by craft, a composer and singer, successful businesswoman and spiritual seeker, she simply believes “That we are all here to help each other any way we can.” Lighthouse was taught at an early age about Chinese history and philosophy by her father, Ben Marinovich. Lighthouse says, “I guess I was trained for this from an early age. My average morning breakfast table conversation before school included the interpreting of last night’s dreams and on certain days of the week reading coffee grounds.” Studying the I Ching extensively, she also immersed herself in Christian, Buddhist and Taoist theology. She was introduced to Feng Shui in 1991, and later met His Holiness Grandmaster Lin Yun Rinpoche while he was performing a blessing ceremony for the City of Santa Cruz in California. She began studying directly under the renowned spiritual leader of the Tantric Buddhist Black Sect Feng Shui in 1995, and became a certified practitioner in 1996. They collaborated in 2000 on a project to weave the precepts and theories of Feng Shui into a musical context. The resulting CD, “Feng Shui Tune Up” was heralded as the first of its kind in the field. In 2001 she opened her successful online store to provide personal and unusual Feng Shui products to the world. Celebrating 10 successful years in business, her clientel has now grown to a large domestic and international audience.
