'The Eyes of Chyenne Soulbird'
About the Author
My mother had always felt she would have a girl child and said a prayer that she told me many times. “Great Spirit, thank you for allowing me to care for this child. I will love her and care for her, yet I know she is yours from beginning to end. Let her feet walk the path you have placed before her in grace and beauty. Truly I thank you for this gift.”
Never in any portion of this life would I have consciously planned or written the journey I have had. Neither my mother nor myself ever thought we would end up caring for each other, as mother-daughter, sisters, or woman to woman on such a heart wrenching, intense, and beautiful path. Just as she told Great Spirit that she would care for me in my beginning, I told Him before I came into this world, I would care for her in the end. Life is circles within circles of beginnings and endings, births and deaths. This experience is but one of them.
And now, I too, can say, “Truly, Great Father, Great Mother, I thank you for this gift.”

For Good Medicine Society lessons go to www.goodmedicinesociety.com All Good Medicine Society courses are based on material spoken, written, and taught by Eli Gatoga (Cherokee, 1916-1983), who dedicated his life to teaching others how to search for and apply Good Medicine to all aspects of their lives. His wife, Alloday, and others who support his efforts, continue the school he founded.
Each course consists of a series of lessons that are accompanied by a list of questions. Students are asked to spend at least one week on each lesson, to give them time to absorb the concepts presented, and observe how the lesson pertains to their personal lives. Students then send in their answers and one of the authorized teachers will review and return them with comments.
This is a wonderful introductory course for helping you to create a positive thought life and understanding of the relatedness and oneness of all things.
