Mentorship and Healing
ShadeTree Multicultural Foundation draws upon indigenous wisdom and the power of friendship to mentor the human potential, restore vital wellness, and create intentional communities. ShadeTree provides a sanctuary to at-risk youth and prisoners and supports them through mentorship, which Orland Bishop as the “recovery of the voice.”
Bishop outlines the three systems from which one can draw healing—the body, the social community, and nature. These three systems are interconnected and when integrated mindfully, can dissolve conflict and bring about optimal states of both physical and spiritual health.
