Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972509801, Paperback)

JoEllen Koerner was raised in a small Mennonite community in South Dakota, became a Civil Rights activist in the South, and rose to prominence as a nurse executive of international repute. None of these life experiences, or her honed skills as a Western medical practitioner, prepared her for the moment every parent hopes never happen: Her daughter, Kristi, her body wracked with pain, asks permission to die.

Into the depths of this dreaded moment enters Wanigi Waci (Spirit Dancer), a dear friend and keeper of the Lakota Sioux healing traditions. He invites Kristi and JoEllen into his People’s time-honored healing ways and giving community, with ramifications whose importance ultimately surpasses the restoration of Kristi’s health.

"You think we are human beings having a spiritual experience. In our way, we see people as spiritual beings having a human experience."

--Wanigi Waci

Mother, Heal My Self, a work of surpassing beauty and power, invites the reader to explore the deeper powers of spiritual healing and the necessity for increased intergenerational awareness. The book’s raw honesty makes JoEllen Koerner’s quest everyone’s quest for meaning.
