Thursday, March 21 - Regular Kiwanis Meeting

 

Path of the True Spiritual HealerPath of a True Spiritual Healer – Allen Wolfkill, a true Native American, has been visiting the Lakota/Sioux nation since 1991, first simply as a native American participant, then becoming connected with decorated World War 2 veteran combat Army medic Wallace Black Elk. Black Elk had returned to be a holistic healer to his people (Some call such persons “Medicine Men” but this is a loosely used misnomer – he preferred the term “spiritual leader or Common Man.”)

 

After Black Elk’s death his knowledge passed to Allen, who himself is a traditional and Christian. Mr. Wolfkill has since returned annually. He has reached a reciprocative level with traditional spiritual leaders of the Wo'Lokata Nation (Ogala Nation) which is directly descended from the tradition of Crazy Horse and Wounded Knee. They are seeking understanding in the 21st century.

 

Mr. Wolfkill is presently working with two facilities in Malibu (Creative Care Inc and Avalon of Malibu) primarily serving trauma, Co-Accruing Disorders and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) clients as well as those that have chemical dependencies, alcohol, and drug related issues. He is part of the staff's outreach to the First Nation Peoples (Native North American Community). Location of this meeting will be the Open Bible Church in Rosemead.

Thursday, March 28, 2013 – Regular Kiwanis Meeting

 

Water in the Third World – America, and especially naturally semi-arid areas such as Los Angeles County (which supports ten million people), have sophisticated water sourcing, purification and distribution systems.  Not so in many nations, where multitudes  (frequently children) suffer diseases and actually die from polluted water sources. 

 

One remedy is being pursued by a small non-profit group in Sierra Madre. Its founder, Alan Unell, has shared their remarkable story of hope with other San Gabriel Valley service groups, including San Gabriel Valley Kiwanis Clubs. Location of this meeting will be the Open Bible Church in Rosemead.
