79. Wisdom Teachings For Inner Peace In the Modern World From Native American Shaman and Medicine Man Bear Heart with Molly Larkin

Have you ever read a book that immediately changed your life and touched your Soul?

My guest in this episode, Molly Larkin, and her co-author and mentor, Native American Shaman and Medicine Man, Bear Heart (Marcellus William) of the Muskogee Creek tribe, did just that.

I was so humbled and deeply grateful when Molly agreed to come on the show so she could share with you these profound wise teachings with the hopes that they will help you find more meaning, peace, purpose, connection and joy in your life – I know it did for me!

Molly has been a spiritual seeker since the age of seven, when she learned about the scientific understanding of the time that human beings only utilize 10% of their cognitive capacity. That moment sparked her intrigue into the vast possibilities of human potential and her desire to utilize the entirety of her brain’s capacity in her life.

Molly has studied with various indigenous elders from around the world for over 30 years and was Bear Heart’s apprentice for 15 years, learning many of his medicine methods. She is a Sun Dancer, a Vision Faster and a Pipe Carrier. Molly has also studied with Lakota elders Wallace Black Elk and Maya Priest and Master Teacher Miguel Angel Vergara. She is an energy healing practitioner and works with an international clientele of people and animals, both in person and via long distance. She teaches healing classes in the U.S. for the largest healing organization in Europe: NFSH-The Healing Trust. Molly has taught personal growth and spirituality workshops in the U.S., Europe, and Australia (whew!). Molly also teaches classes in spiritual healing and is available for private consultations and readings online.

As I mentioned, most significantly, Molly co-authored, with Muskogee Creek elder Marcellus “Bear Heart” Williams, the international best-seller “The Wind Is My Mother; the Life and Teachings of a Native American Shaman” — a book that touched my Soul. Find this fantastic book now at my eStore!
