I met Arrowhawk over 8 yrs ago at one of his Feather Medicine workshops. After the workshop, I had an individual feather medicine session. During the session, Arrowhawk located an area in my right side that was problematic. I had been having pain off and on in this area since I was in my early teens. In over 20 yrs, no medical doctor had been able to identify the cause or elevate the pain. I even had exploratory surgeries to try to find the cause with no explanation for what was the cause of this ongoing pain. Using his feather medicine techniques, Arrowhawk was able to stop the pain completely and in over 8 yrs the pain has NEVER returned!

When I met Arrowhawk I had just ended a 14 yr abusive marriage and was suffering from low self esteem and a distrust for men. After counseling, much support and receiving unconditional love and acceptance from Arrowhawk and the center staff, I found my spiritual connection that filled the emptiness/void in my life and my heart which lead to inner peace and the self-love I'd been missing.

Over the years, I've seen many people come to the center from abusive relationships or with different types of addictions, anger issues, cancer, or other illnesses. These same people leave the center at peace with a healthier outlook on their lives, more self-esteem, and a spiritual connection they didn't have when they arrived.

My wife has suffered with back pain & subsequent addiction to pain medicine for 14 years. She met Arrowhawk at a treatment center where he held sweat lodges for the clients. After her first lodge, she was significantly better, both phsyically & emotionally. The holistic approach Arrowhawk uses has done wonders for her. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone after seeing the amazing results my wife experienced and would like to add she attended 11 of the lodges during her stay. Thank you very much.

I was priviliged to attend a residential treatment center for addiction and as part of the holistic side of treatment an osi lodge was offered. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had. I am a sufferer of degenerative disc disease & the healing I received was nothing short of a miracle. I was fortunate to attend 11 of these lodges & learned so much about my heritage from Arrowhawk & Healing Dove. This experience gave me a life far beyond measure!!!

The RRTW center is a place of great beauty and peace. At night the sky is breathtaking and when there is a full moon the passing clouds put on a light show that is a sight to behold. You can go there and unload the burdens you carry long enough to get balance back into your life. I am a cancer survivor and was looking for other avenues on my journey back from the edge. I have known Arrowhawk a long time. I first learned the feather medicinefrom him and more wisdom as time went on. He performed our wedding in the old way which has been a great blessing in our lives. My life was touched by all that I met there. In the words of others who have been " It's different out there!"

As a resident at a treatment facility for addiction, I had the opportunity to experience the sweat lodge facilitated by Arrowhawk & Lora "healing dove". I went into it with an open mind and came back feeling renewed and at peace. I struggle with anxiety and panic attacks and the spiritual elements of the sweat lodge left me with a sense of peace. Words cannot explain the experience and I would suggest that if an opportunity should arise to attend a sweat lodge you should take it. Arrowhawk and Lora have experience in the medical field and provided a sense of comfort to everyone that was apprehensive upon arrival. I cannot say enough good things about both Arrowhawk and Lora and I am grateful to have met them.

When I first attended the lodge, it was one of the more difficult things I have done in my life. Once I was in there however I got back in touch with the spiritual side of myself that I had turned my back on. The healing that took place in that first lodge has kept me coming back for more because I know it works. Few things in life are truly 100% guaranteed, but this is one of them. The lodge helped me through my withdrawals and has given me a deep sense of inner peace. I have been attending every lodge I can and I always leave feeling relaxed and restored. I would recommend every person who can take the time to do a lodge do so. It has changed my life for the better and I know that anyone else who goes will feel a change as well. Thankyou to Arrowhawk, Billy, and Lora for all the time and effort they put in to making the lodge available to people and to making it the wonderful healing expirience that it is.

I simply cannot describe in words how the sweat lodge has helped me. I use to stand in fear, never knowing how or what to expect next in life. Constantly searching for something but never knowing what it was. I knew there must be something better then what I had.
After attending a sweat lodge my eyes began to open up, like seeing for the first time Arrow hawks teachings allowed me to put my life into perspective. I found forgiveness and inner strength beyond imagination.
I hope this organization continues to serve, there are so many that are in need. The Red Road To Wellness is nothing short of a miracle.

The Red Road to Wellness is not an easy road! We combine many ways both modern and ancient to achieve the results many people need! Western medical practices are not enough, no, we must remember the emotional, spiritual, mental, and the physical ALL needs to healing to be complete!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen remarkable results by individuals whom have sweat lodges and vision quests, life changing events needed to handle everyday life

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to promote and fund this action!

We are all looking for peace, and healing and answers. You can find it here. You are made to feel that you have worth and belong. These people become friends to all who come and you know they have your back if and when needed.

It's as much a retreat as a school that teaches the Native American ways of living and healing.

I honestly came only to observe the ceremonies but became part of the center and the family. The Sweat lodge cleanses both physically and emotionally and Arrowhawk's talks while there help put things in perspective for you. I was very skeptical of the feather medicine at first but I saw it and I felt it. It is real and it will heal.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Healing of a long time back injury. Emotional healing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Move closer to me so I could see you all more often.
