As a respected Ojibway Elder, insightful author, and sought after licensed psychotherapist Blackwolf (Robert Jones M.S.) brings an electrifying healing presence to workshops, seminars, and gatherings.
Blackwolf has blended ancient tribal healing remedies with contemporary approaches to profoundly redirect societal inequities and defuse cultural abuse. These effective teachings promote healthy balance through unique humor, storytelling, and candid observations. Consequently, participants are moved to review and redefine their present value system responses towards self and others.
This presenter is a necessary guest because his native spiritual wisdom speaks clearly on both individual and collective levels. These age old understandings enhance and expand former awarenesses hidden within current societal programming. Participants, thereby, find a strong sense of belonging and feel newfound connections to both the spiritual and physical laws of the universe.
Blackwolf has taught Ojibway culture at the University of Wisconsin and has co-authored three books currently distributed in ten countries. The Healing Drum, Listen to the Drum, and Earth Dance Drum can be obtained through most bookstores in North America.
Blackwolf is an elder of Ojibway tribal heritage. He grew up on the Lac Corte Oreilles reservation in Northwestern Wisconsin and learned from his elders, ancient tribal ways and Wisdom.

What he has brought to the clinical arena is old age tribal healing remedies coupled with contemporary approaches.
