As we move away from a place where the definition of wellness and health is the “absence of disease”, we will explore a model which portrays the human patient as a complete whole. Body, Mind and Spirit cannot be taken or considered as separate unrelated parts of us. They are variations in perspective more or less evident as one looks at a person from different angles of viewpoint and perspective. Their functions and existence overlap and are interdependent, synergistic and sympathetic to a degree such as we only begin to suspect.
Indigenous and Native American teachings and traditions tell us that the body, the mind and the spirit working together create the instrument by which our very soul is manifest and able to interact and to communicate with Mother Earth and the material word and the universe of which we are a part.
In oriental medicine humans are described as being “conduits” between the twin powers of the Celestial influences and energies of Heaven and the terrestrial influences and energies of the Earth. We are how the Heavens feel wet grass between the toes and how the earth sees the stars.
Native Americans simply say “Mitakoe Oyasin” (Lakota), “we are all relatives”.
This infers we are all living constituents of all life and related to all life in some way directly.
