Supporting/sharing with elders, healers
and communities of all cultures
Healing space, Ida Valley
healing techniques were used successfully for thousands of
when people and communities were still living their sacred life,
their heart, community, spirit and Mother Earth.
and especially Nomadic people
such as hundreds of Aboriginal cultures
in Australia, the Plains Indians, and others,
lived in harmony with their heart, sacred law
Mother Earth for tens of thousands of years,
therefore did not have diseases such
Aids or even influenza.
shared in a world of the heart and spirit,
well-being, freedom, belonging and
with Mother Earth.
ancient ones did not need
nuclear bombs, plastic surgery,
and drug abuse, fences, agriculture,
of animals, money
or pesticides to
plants (weeds) with much
nutritional and healing energy
our "cultivated" plants.
Today, traditional healing techniques of native and Aboriginal people such as
spiritual healing, healing herbs, traditional ceremonies, etc., while of great value
for tens of thousands of years, are no longer sufficient to help communities completely heal the
consequences of the loss of their sacred life, which then manifests in diseases,
problems such as cancer, Aids, diabetes, alcohol abuse, etc.
(mind-based) medicine, science, education and conventional government health care,
while offering some support on a physical and emotional level,
do not offer true
healing at the core (heart / sharing of sacred life) for the consequences of the
loss of the traditional way of life (Sacred Life) of native
(and non-native) communities and peoples.
which is not in harmony
with the heart and spirit
of the people, and Mother Earth,
does not help communities
to heal or build self-sufficiency
and true well-being - Sacred Life -
for the families, children, youth, elders
and their future generations.
to native healers and communities
to heal the consequences of the loss of their sacred way of life - which
then manifests in emotional and
physical problems, diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Aids, heart disease, asthma, alcohol problems, low
self worth, depression, etc.
All dis-eases, disharmonies and imbalances,
of our body, life and world,
are the manifestation of the energy
of our emotions (mind), feelings (heart),
and the loss, oppression or threat to
our Sacred Life.
"Dreamturtle Sun" Juerg, 1999/2008
Since 1979, Juerg has shared with many native people as far north as the caribou people in the Arctic Circle and St. Lawrence Island (Alaska) and as
far south as Hokonui Marae of Gore, in the South Island of New Zealand.
In a sacred ceremony in 1999, Juerg received his spirit name “Papeschpupe” (Dreamturtle) by the late Buster Yellow Kidney,
respected elder and medicine man of the beautiful Blackfoot people in
Juerg offers to help people and communities to heal their heart and
grow towards a life, which offers true well-being and sustainability for the
whole community, families, mothers and fathers, children, grandchildren,
future generations and Mother Earth.
He believes it is important for indigenous communities
not to simply follow western
(mind-based) examples of economic development, agriculture, education, health, etc.
which take us away from our heart, community living, sacred life and whole
well-being - and
instead nurture activities in harmony with the heart,
spirit, culture and community of the people
and Mother Earth.
Conventional business and investments can
achieve some short-term (material) gain,
but negative long-term consequences,
because of the loss or compromising of the
sacred life of the people and
harmony with Mother Earth.
We believe it is important for the
and whole well-being of communities to reclaim
as much as possible their self-sufficiency
in harmony with the heart, spirit and traditional
culture of the people and Mother Earth"

plants, authentic arts and crafts, community-based
health services and healing, guided

Juerg can build on his
20 years of international marketing, business,
consulting and management experience in
New Zealand, Australia, Europe,
North America and Asia, and his sharing and
healing work over the past 25 years,
with native cultures and people and
communities in the world.
Family", Juerg 2004
Juerg believes that
in order to build a sustainable future and true well-being,
it is crucial that we can heal and share our sacred life,
harmony with our heart, spirit, culture, all people and Mother Earth.
Harmony and well-being
of our body, mind, our life and world
are the manifestation of the energy
of our emotions (mind), feelings (heart)
from living and
our Sacred Life.
Juerg and Jaymie are devoted to support and share with people, families and communities of the heart
and spirit, of all cultures.
