Arthur Jacobs   SANTA ROSA, CA

Hi My name is Arthur Jacobs. First off I want to acknowledge  my parents and my family, that supported me and helped me regain my health. I also want to thank the Dr.s who helped me physically and lastly the medicine people who showed me a way to have my spirit soar while I am planted here on earth.

I am raising money for a trip to Peru. 

I was hurt in an auto accident 32 years ago that left me with hemiplegia (paralysis of half my body). 31 years ago I met a buddhist healer http://jamesgauer.info/ who started me on this healing path. He introduced me to a Peruvian healer, Inti Cesar Malasquez   http://www.inti-shaman.com/en/, Inti who brought me to my first sweat lodge, introduced me to North American Native Medicine People. 

Here is a story I wrote about traveling with North American Native Medicine People that you might enjoy. http://sonic.net/~star/coup.html and here is a language game I created to try and help save and revive a lost Native Language http://www.sonic.net/~star/CoastMiwok/CoastMiwok.html

Now I am trying to raise money to visit Inti in Peru during a festival http://sternenevents.de/index.php?id=92  I have special needs (it comes with age and disability), I can not just hop on a plane and hop off at the festival. I will need a companion who speaks Spanish, and that will cost more than I have at my disposal  right now. I only need $3000 and then I should have enough. Thank you for your time!

Sorry I have not finished the story yet, but here is one about the Indians from where I live the story will open in a new window
The picture below was from the gift giving at Inti's. I took a picture of the woman who is smilling and showed it to her on my phone.
