Based on her personal search for life's meaning, Judy Binda's anthropological research on spirituality led her to write this ethnography. Without God's presence in her life, she would never have been able to overcome the many challenges she faced in her dual journey to grow both as a human being and a spiritual being. In the first part of this work, through her encounters, Judy learns that her own spiritual path was mirrored in that of her contributors. She engages her applied research in the second part of her study in integrating traditional medicine and healers into Western clinics, in order to find solutions to improve the wellness of people and encourage Native spiritualism as a way of life. These ethnographic studies conducted with those who walk their Native spiritual journey as spiritual seekers and the traditional medicine people and healers who have the ability to heal through spiritual guidance, traditional practices, and medicines offer richness and benefits for those seeking different paths to wellness.

Spirit, Soul, Body

A perennial problem for spiritual traditions of all sorts is dualism—either a positing of a false distance between the Divine and the created or a rejection of creation and the human body. Many contemporary spiritual seekers have sensed this problem and sought to remedy it through myriad solutions drawn from various spiritual traditions and secular wisdom, both Eastern and Western. Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam, explores Christianity’s contribution to the discussion. He offers a revisioning and rearticulation of this teaching, based on the prophetic seminal work of Bede Griffiths, toward a practical and integral spirituality that reverences all aspects of our being human—spirit, soul, and body.
