In this show, my two guests helped us remember the “Wise Woman Tradition” — the oldest known healing practice on our planet. Whapio Diane Bartlett of North Carolina and Amy Long of Georgia are practitioners of this tradition. A core belief of the Wise Woman Tradition is that a woman contains within an innate wisdom to guide her through the experience of birth and delivery. Whapio and Amy are Doulas, trained and experienced in the art of providing continuous physical, emotional and womanly support to mothers and their families before, during and after birth. They empower their clients by helping them balance ancient traditions with current medical practices as needed, to maximize the positive outcomes of the birth experience for all involved.

Most pregnant women are removed from their innate wisdom and power centers and subjected to impersonal and sometimes invasive medical procedures to bring life into the world on a schedule that’s often not their own. Those who practice the Wise Woman Tradition also embrace the concept of healing wisdom passed from one generation to the next, and practice the womanly art of supporting and empowering those in need during all life transitions including birth, death, marriage, and crisis.  If you’re a woman who seeks to understand your inner wisdom better, or if you’re involved with a woman who you’d like to empower, or if you wish to get more in touch with the divine feminine within you if you’re a man, than join us for this fascinating trip back through time on Native Wisdom where we strive to remember who we are and what we know!

Jody Long joined Andie to explore the phenomenon of Near Death Experience and evidence of the afterlife. A Near Death Experience, or NDE, is when someone is clinically dead for a period of time, and then comes back to life with experiences of the “after life”.

Jody Long, together with her husband Dr. Jeffrey Long and Paul Perry, wrote the book “Evidence of the Afterlife”, a New York Times bestseller. It is one of the largest scientific studies of the Near Death Experience (NDE) ever presented, and is based on researching over 1300 NDEs.

Jody reviewed the nine lines of evidence that we have consciousness beyond the body after death, and experience that spans all age groups, races, and religious affiliations globally. Join us for a trip to the afterlife on Native Wisdom.

Listen to a fascinating conversation with Bernie Siegel about the spiritual aspects of healing our lives, feeling versus thinking, learning from adversity, listening to our heart voices, moving beyond the darkness in our lives to love and light. Bernie has touched so many lives all over our planet. As a physician, who has cared for and counseled innumerable people who’s mortality has been threatened by an illness, Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our society grapples with today. He continues to assist in the breaking of new ground in the field of healing and personally struggling to live the message of kindness and love.

In 1986 his first book, Love. Medicine & Miracles was published. This event redirected his life. In 1989 Peace, Love & Healing and in 1993 How To Live Between Office Visits followed. He is currently working on other books with the goal of humanizing medical education and medical care, as well as, empowering patients and teaching survival behavior to enhance immune system competency. Bernie’s realization that we all need help dealing with the difficulties of life, not just the physical ones, led to Bernie writing his fourth book in 1998 Prescriptions for Living. It helps people to become aware of the eternal truths and wisdom of the sages through Bernie’s stories and insights rather than wait a personal disaster. He wants to help people fix their lives before they are broken, and thus not have to become strong at the broken places. Published in 2003 are Help Me To Heal to empower patients and their caregivers and 365 Prescriptions For The Soul, in 2004 a children’s book about how difficulties can become blessings, Smudge Bunny, in 2005 101 Exercises For The Soul and out in the Fall of 2006 a prescriptions for parenting book Love, Magic & Mud Pies. Published in 2008 Buddy’s Candle, for children of all ages, related to dealing with the loss of a loved one, be it a pet or parent, and to be published in 2009 Faith, Hope & Healing with “survivor stories and my reflections about what they teach us.”
