The Vision

This is more than a story about sovereignty or using traditional medicines. This is a movement of healing for our communities. Standing together, reclaiming authority and responsibility as citizens of the earth, creating peace and respect for ourselves, each other and this place we call home.

Dr. Gabor Maté

After 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience, Dr. Maté worked for over a decade in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness. Dr. Maté  is the  bestselling author of four books published in over thirty languages, and an internationally renowned speaker highly sought after for his expertise on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship of stress and illness.

Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
