  1. Hi David! John N Mare Washco here. Good luck with your endeavor. I know all about therapy. Did a ton of inner child work in the 90’s and it saved my life. Thank goodness that therapy and mental health issues are more widely accepted today, but still have a long way to go. Now we do our own form of therapy… Sweat Lodge. In 2000 we were taken under the wing of an Ojibway Medicine Man, and were taught all the traditional ways he grew up with in the bush of NW Ontario. We are authorized by him and the Tribal Chief to pour Sweat Lodge, put people out Fasting, pour Healing Sweat Lodge, conduct Pow Wow, make Traditional Medicine (roots and bark) and do public teaching. It’s been quite a journey the last 14 years. We’re like a modern day Dances With Wolves. But anyhow just wanted to drop a line and say, Hi and keep up the great work.
