I’m a real young guy, but always been a very balanced soul, my spiritual path is deeply part of who I am. I recently got some information quote ” We recommend that you intend that the native american teachings come your way. Begin to explore them through sweatlodges, drumming, dancing, and so on. This will awaken many things in you and teach you much about the earth, you are coded to ritual; when you perfom ritual your body begins to remember who you are and what you know ” this information comes from a highly respective source, so don’t bother responding if you don’t understand. So I wish to look into this advice. I have much respect for the earth & myself, I have always been drawn to Indian culture (maybe a past life). Though my question and problem is, I’d rather not go to a teacher ( native or not )trying to get profit, who hardly knows the real knowledge, but get involved in the true teachings and rituals from someone or a community or organization that knows what they are talking about. Problem I see it is though, that most of the true knowledge is only given to full-blood native americans if even that, & I know most of them specially now adays try to keep to themselves, specially with their beliefs, rituals, and teachings (I would think). So how would I start looking? I’d rather not learn from a book, any suggestions? People or places I should look into?
