Salvatore Gencarelle "A Man Among the Helpers"

<< < (2/2)


He works with Tobias Heinrichs:

--- Quote ---Tobias Heinrichs was born in 1959, is married and a father to five children. For eight years he lived on the "Pine Ridge Reservation" in South Dakota, home of the Lakota Sioux. He was adopted by a native american family, the Chipps (Woptura) which stands in a lineage of generations of medicine men. There he learned about the culture, traditions and healing ceremonies of the Lakota and especially this family. Under the tutelage of the medicine man he was mentored in these ceremonies over these years and made a comittment to bring them to Germany. Since 1993 Tobias is working with these ceremonies and helps communities and people on their personal path to gain or maintain a life of health and happiness. He runs sweat lodges, guides people in the preparation and act of vision questing and conducts individual healing ceremonies. Once a year he runs a stonedance (related to the sundance) as an intersessor. In these times Tobias feels a calling to share his knowledge and mentor people in the ceremonies which were passed down to him by the Chipps family. He helps to preserve this knowledge for future generations and facilitates individuals who will be able to conduct these ceremonies for their own communities.

Defend the Sacred:
In the early '90s Godfrey and Charles Chipps were traveling around the country doing pay to pray yuwipi ceremonies for white people. They invited the non-Natives to come out to Pine Ridge for Sun Dance and other ceremonies. Lots of bad stuff has happened in the wake of that.

Interesting that so many people met Chipps family in Massachusetts and followed them to South Dakota, I guess this guy was one of the first out east?
