Bradford Keeney Work with Global Shamanisn has given academic Merit and Medical and Pyschatric implications for Healing Body, Mind and Soul.Shamanism is the Oldest Spiritual Practice on the Planet.It predates all other Religions by atleast 10,000 years.On every Continent on the Planet you will Find Shamanistic Practice.All Global Shamanistic Practices have Common Ground with each other.I will share some common elements from my own Native American Tradition and Others Later in this presentation.For now I want to Link the symbionic nature of Shamanistic practices to Peter Levine's work in Somatic Experiencing,Trauma Healing and Recovery.Peter Talks about wild Animals and how they deal with Danger and Shock.Indigenous Native Cultures have made the same Observations Peter Levine Makes in there Shamanistic Practices about Wild Animals in Mother Nature in regards to Trauma Healing and Shock.Global Shamanism has known this, like I said for over 10,000 years.Reference Peter Levine's Book;"Walking the Tiger",things we can learn from Wild Animals about Trauma Healing and Recovery.Peter's Observations When wild animals go through Shock to thier Recovery,they go through a stage called Trembling,shaking,and quaking.This step in Trauma recovery is so important it helps Disapate the Frozen stuck energy of Fight,Flight,and Frozen response to Danger.It is observable in Wild Animals and Human Beings.It is important for traumatized Human Beings who survive Plane crash,Car crash,Huracane,Artelery or Arial Bombardment of War.To Tremble,Shake,and Quake,to get over the shock.Important if this step is not allowed to express it natural inclenation.Soldiers,Freedom Fighters and Cilivians could carry PTST in there Bodys on a deep cellular level for weeks,months,and years.In dealing with multi-generational Trauma 20 or 40 or 60 years.affecting individuals,Tribes,Clans,Communities and Whole Nations.Bradford Keeney studing Global Shamanism,developed Shacking Medicine where trembling,shacking,and quaking associated with ecstatic experience of bliss can lead to healing and processing Trauma Recovery.Bradford Keeney Shaking Medicine Shamanistic Practice can work well with Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing.Some Important Links to Bradford Keeney Web Site is; Peter A. Levine Somatic Experiencing Site Link; Now the Rest exerpts from Bradford Keeney Shaking Medicine;

Please Check Peter Levine's Youtube Video out.The Importance of Healing Multi-Generational Trauma in Regards to War and Conflict.Most of the Time in PeaceMaking and Conflict/Resolution.The Somatic Component Trauma is left out.Most people deal with the Mind in Conflict Resolution,neglecting the Frozen Stuck Combat Energy in the Body.Many People are PTST from war and Conflict and don't even know it.Most Goverments concerning Military PTST and Cilvian PTST intentionally support Mental Denial and Supression of this Health and medical Reality.To admitt it would make the Existing Goverment Politic Look Bad and Responsible.They Like to play the Game of Plausable Denialbility and Multi-Generational Trauma does not Exist. Example;Its the same with Global Warming does not exist.2nd and 4th tour Combat Solders coming back from Iran,Irack,Afganiststan.Are deeply Scared and Traumatized.US Military and Government Policy is, it does not exist or it is Denied.The Biggest Sick,criminal,disfunction is the Denial of Civilian Causuties and Death.Take this a step further The Multi-Generational Trauma whole Countries Carry in there Bodies Unhealed and Unprocessed.What a set up for the Cycle of Violence to go on.Even in America the Families of Soldier the Children carry the Unhealed Trauma on top of that they are Taught Rascism,Zenophobia,future fuel for the cycle of Violence.On the Passive aggressive aspects.Passive side we get Alcohol and Drug Addiction Suicide.On the Aggressive side we get Family Abuse,Wife Beating and Child Beating.Teenagers join Gangs.Or they see mass Government Comrecials on TV and Internet,Join the Army.This is the Result of Multi-generational Trauma,Grandfather,Father,and Son.This is a Global Problem all over the World.It does not Matter If its Isreali or Palistanian both sides carry Unhealed,Unresolved Multi-Generational Trauma.To Have a Win/Win,Peace on Earth.We must Heal the Multi-Generational Trauma that both sides Carry to break the Cycle of Violence.Somatic Experiencing and EMDR along with Alternative Conflict Resolution Practices and NonViolent Commmunication and Cultural Shamanic Spiritual Religious Ritual Practices that Have The Common Ground,of healing,Compassion,NonViolence,Kindness,Forgiveness and Global Solidarity.You can argue for your Limitations and buy your Government's Policies of this is Impossible.I personally don't Buy it.Nonthing is Impossible.Small Thinking and Small Minds can Leave the Room Plaese.The Universe is so big it won't fit into your Mind.Its time to think outside the Box.It time to Think as Big as the Universe,Nonthing is Impossible.We can Have Global Peace and Healing in our Life Time.I was once a Freedom Fighter and I carried a Assault Rifle and a Micro Nuclear Weapon.I have been There done That.Now I choose NonViolence Peace and Healing Instead.I melted my Assult Rifle and Micro Nuke down to a Plow Sheer and Garden Tools and I grow a Organic Garden for Peace.I ask myself what out there Greater then myself can I do and Give to Man/Woman Kind.I looked all over the World and say the Little Children in Every Country,all the Pain and Suffering,the biggest victums of War and Conflict.My Goal and Objective is to Provide a World in Peace and Safty where all Children,Red,Yellow,Black and White all Colors of the Rainbow can Play,Laugh,share Joy and Love Together.For the Future our Children and all Generations,St.Thomas SpreadingEagle,Shaman/Minister.

I love the Native American Example what Wolf do you Feed the Most.The Black one or the White One.Given the Premiss we have Awareness in the 1st Place as a Fruit of our Shumata Meditation Training.We can See the Possibility of Choice here Which Wolf to Feed.The Black Wolf is a Long time Habit for myself and alot of us.So Lojong and Tonglen Practice is Helpful.Replace a Bad Habit with a Loving and Compassionate Habit.Most Anger is Fear Based and Connect to the Perciption of a Percived Threat or Danger.Anger has a Somatic Component.When Faced with Danger and a Life Threating Situation.We all go automatic Fight,Flight or Frozen Response.MySelf as a Man generally go Fight Response(Anger,Rage and Even Hate as Emotions Arise).Yes Its a Choice and Yes its Somatic hard Wired also.Awareness and Intentional cognitive reafirmations will Help.One of the Reason we Have War and Conflict is we have failed to deal with the Somatic Componants of Fear and Anger.We have Multi-generational Trauma and Unproccessed PTST.Heal These on a Deep Cellular Somatic Level,We can Break the Cycle of Violence.I advocate EMDR and Somatics Experiencing.An Example of Somatics Experiencing my my Friend and Mentor Peter Levine;

I feel so much gratitude to you all for helping me understand the role of anger in my world. It's always about choice, isn't it?

Blessings to you all.

Thanks to everyone for their helpful comments regarding anger and resentment. I am grateful for finally beginning to learn that their is no such thing as justifiable anger...I have a choice how I react and as Ms Shantie L story relates, which wolf to matter what the situation, no matter what wrong was "done" to me. Yes, it is a hard pill to swallow, but I felt such liberation once I began to accept it. Maintaining that acceptance and nurturing it on a daily basis, sometimes hourly basis! is a challenge, and one I fully embrace.
