This book changed me deeply. By following the words of Blackwolf I followed the path and the activities he shared with me. I experienced everything he said I would - even though at the time I was conscious of what I was doing without realising the inner change had occurred. A wonderful book! As the book was dedicated to AA a group of AA women have responded to what Blackwolf taught me, by organising a weekend where we will read the book together, and carry out the activities just as Blackwolf describes. I can’t say enough about it. The change is a restoration of strength I feel deep within. It was like a belt had been undone, and after the activity with Mishomis - I felt like the belt has been strapped in place. Unmovable. I haven’t felt this secure in all my 62 years! Thank you Blackwolf! From all the women who are coming to our Listen to the Drum weekend, Victoria, Australia!!

About the author (2010)

As a respected Ojibway Elder, insightful author, and sought after licensed psychotherapist Blackwolf (Robert Jones M.S.) brings an electrifying healing presence to workshops, seminars, and gatherings. Blackwolf has blended ancient tribal healing remedies with contemporary approaches to profoundly redirect societal inequities and defuse cultural abuse. These effective teachings promote healthy balance through unique humor, storytelling, and candid observations. Consequently, participants are moved to review and redefine their present value system responses towards self and others. This presenter is a necessary guest because his native spiritual wisdom speaks clearly on both individual and collective levels. These age old understandings enhance and expand former awarenesses hidden within current societal programming. Participants, thereby, find a strong sense of belonging and feel newfound connections to both the spiritual and physical laws of the universe. Blackwolf has taught Ojibway culture at the University of Wisconsin and has co-authored three books currently distributed in ten countries. The Healing Drum, Listen to the Drum, and Earth Dance Drum can be obtained through most bookstores in North America. Blackwolf is an elder of Ojibway tribal heritage. He grew up on the Lac Corte Oreilles reservation in Northwestern Wisconsin and learned from his elders, ancient tribal ways and Wisdom. After serving in the Korean conflict, and attending pre-law school at Marquette University, Blackwolf fell victim to alcoholism for twenty years. Since 1977 he has enjoyed continuous sobriety and went on to become a licensed psychotherapist specializing in addictionology. What he has brought to the clinical arena is old age tribal healing remedies coupled with contemporary approaches. Blackwolf is an international speaker and workshop presenter. He has also taught Ojibway culture at the University of Wisconsin. Blackwolf now resides in Greenbay, Wisconsin. Author Home Page:
