Based on her personal search for life's meaning, Judy Binda's anthropological research on spirituality led her to write this ethnography. Without God's presence in her life, she would never have been able to overcome the many challenges she faced in her dual journey to grow both as a human being and a spiritual being.
In the first part of this work, through her encounters, Judy learns that her own spiritual path was mirrored in that of her contributors. She engages her applied research in the second part of her study in integrating traditional medicine and healers into Western clinics, in order to find solutions to improve the wellness of people and encourage Native spiritualism as a way of life. These ethnographic studies-conducted with those who walk their Native spiritual journey as spiritual seekers and the traditional medicine people and healers who have the ability to heal through spiritual guidance, traditional practices, and medicines-offer richness and benefits for those seeking different paths to wellness.
