Press Room
True North Featured in New Book
Tuesday February 19th, 2013

FALMOUTH, ME--February 19, 2013--True North Health Center announced today that founding practitioner and board member, Evelyn Rysdyk has contributed a chapter on True North for a new book. The chapter, "Reverent Participatory Relationship in an Integrated Health Center," is featured in Spirited Medicine: Shamanism in Contemporary Healthcare.

Rysdyk, who is an author of Modern Shamanic Living: New Explorations of an Ancient Path and the soon to be released, Spirit Walking: A Course in Shamanic Power, is a nationally known shamanic healer and teacher who has presented across the country. Her studies of indigenous healing practices have given her a unique perspective on collaborative care.

She says,"What we at True North call, Reverent Participatory Relationship, is actually the oldest way of relating to the world. Our ancestors understood the interconnectedness of all life and also knew that the relationships between people, with others and with nature needed to be tended well for health and balance to be maintained. At True North, we have translated that time-tested formula to create effective therapeutic encounters-that is, ones where a healing response has been engendered."

She continues, "I believe that True North's multi-disciplinary approach, which is based upon compassionate relationship, collaboration and integration is precisely the right antidote to
the feelings of isolation, depression and separation that plague our culture and contribute to breaking down people's health."
