Vivian’s path is as a traditional healer and a walker of the Red Road/Native American tradition.
Focusing on nutrition, Vivian began her professional healing career in the 50’s, studying with Norman.W. Walker, Ph.D in California, Paavo Airola, N.D. in Arizona, Dr. Shelton’s Health School in Texas, and the American Hygienic Society in Chicago. In the early 70’s she began studying various aspects of astrology and subsequently developed her own system of Spiritual Astrology, teaching both Level I and Level II classes. In 1979, she became a Certified Hypnotherapist and later added massage therapy and foot reflexology to her list of healing modalities.
In 1980, after 16 years as a medical LPN, working with hospital patients and being highly motivated from her own healing experience with severe allergies, she opened Wild Rice Nutrition, her holistic nutrition practice in Colorado Springs.
Rounding out 50 years of experience in natural healing with nutrition, herbology, and applied kinesiology, and supporting her life-long love of learning, she most recently has become a Certified GAPS practitioner.
Vivian lives what she teaches. In 1983, she honored her Seminole/Creek Indian blood by going to SunBear’s Bear Tribe on Vision Mountain near Spokane, to learn and remember the sacred ways of the First Nations on this continent. Along with her clairvoyant gifts, Vivian has developed a ghost busting talent.She is totally connected to the Four Directions: Air, Earth, Fire and Water, accepting those energies as her guides in ceremonies and in her daily life. Vivian walks the Spirit Road that honors all of the Creator’s life forms and their synergistic purpose.She was adopted by the Lakota White Hawk family in South Dakota in 1987. A nationally known ceremonialist, educator and speaker, Vivian is an active member of the American Holistic Nurses Association, The American Herb Guild, and the Pikes Peak Herb Association, and an advocate for organic, whole foods for everyone.
