This fascinating clip from Earthfire Institute explores the possibilities of healing through touch – a widely debated and controversial form of treatment.

Named after a passionate earth-mother wolf with a fire in her belly to protect anything vulnerable, Earthfire was founded in 2000 to develop a new model of relating to nature through the voices of the rescued wildlife under its care. A 40 acre wildlife sanctuary and retreat center, it is located on the western slope of Grand Teton National Park, near Driggs, Idaho. Earthfire’s work resonates with the venerable traditions of Buddhism, deep ecology and integrative thinkers such as Goethe.

In light of the debate that arises whenever the topic is broached, for me Energy Healing Wolf inevitably prompts the question: What is your experience with alternative forms of treatment?
