The "Red Road" is a metaphor for living a spiritual life. Oglala Sioux medicine man and holy man, Black Elk, spoke of all the people on the Red Road as one interconnected circle that made a sacred hoop. Only you can walk your journey, but many are on the road.
To follow the Red Road is to make a pilgrimage of personal change. Before slinging my physical and emotional backpacks over my shoulder I walked a path that was defined by depression, addiction, and unbalance that came to it's crenendo with an effort to end my on life.
Waking up the next morning I began my slow journey that led me to the Red Road and helped me to discover who and what I truly am.Throught the practices and study of the ways of the First People's teachings I learned to gain power over those old forces that had once brought me to my knees.
