In addition to exploring the healing power of storytelling in Native American culture, Lewis Mehl-Madrona draws upon the cultures the Maori, East Africans, Mongolians, Aborigines, and Laplanders to illustrate the healing use of stories throughout the world in Coyote Wisdom. Exploration of the archetypal characters and situations that populate the inner world of personal stories can lead to breakthroughs in healing and, possibly, to miracles of transformation. Though this approach to healing runs counter to the current model of modern psychology, Mehl-Madrona asserts that the stories we tell about ourselves model our lives and that by introducing new characters and plots, we can come to see ourselves in a new way. Coyote Wisdom incorporates spiritual perspective into medicine by discussing:Healing stories of creation, transformation, connectivity, miracles Stories as psychotherapy Archetypes as agents of change Reauthoring therapyLewis Mehl-Madrona, M.
