http://www.bearmedicineherbs.com/about.html
Since 1984, when a Seminole Native friend from Fl. introduced Tommy to some traditional Native American (First Peoples) ways, Tommy has been privileged to learn from Abenaki, Cherokee, Ojibwa, Cree and Lakota Elders. His primary teachers, Albert Tait and the   late Don Cardinal are Cree elders of Manitoba, Canada. In October 2009, Tommy and his partner Karen were initiated into the Braveheart lineage of the Lakota Traditions under Basil Braveheart.
 
Shamanism Tommy has also studied the ancient wisdom traditions as taught in core shamanism with Michael Harner, and other shamanic schools of thought with John Ford, and Dana Robins, and Tibetan shamanism with Larry Peters.
 
Energy Healing In 2010 Tommy was initiated into Pan Gu Shen Gong as both an instructor of the basic technique and a practitioner of the Pan Gu Shen Gong healing form. Along with this he's also certified as a Tong Ren practitioner and Reiki two.

LINDA:

So what you’re saying is that you choose 7 plants based on what you are drawn to and these 7 plants can cure basically anything no matter what the disease is?

TOMMY:
That’s right. That’s a very old native belief.

When he was 32 he lost an arm in an accident.
