Call in to speak with the host
Prerecorded April 3, 2004
Dr. Clifford N. Alford began his training at five years old, when his Grandmother, a Texas Cherokee Medicine Woman recognized his interest in herbs and the ways of Mother Earth. She taught him an average of two to three months per year for the next fourteen years.
Naturopathic and Shamanic Services, Inc. was founded by Dr. Sir Clifford N. Alford, Th.D, DD, MH, S/RMT, in May of 1995 in Tahlequah, OK for the purpose of protecting and reviving indigenous matriarchal shamanic traditions of the Cherokee Tribe and other similar traditions worldwide. This ministry had operated in Tahlequah and the surrounding areas, and in Texas, Louisiana, Michigan and New Mexico since 1993. His name was changed to Prajna Shiva Kalidasa by his Tibetan and Javanese teachers.
Prajna Shiva Kalidasa was born as Clifford Nelson Alford, and was apprenticed in Cherokee Medicine from the age of five by his maternal grandmother for fourteen years. His great grandmother assisted in that process for three years until her death. Prajna then apprenticed with others in the Asaga Medicine Society for another eleven years, which resulted in his being declared to be an Adawehas (Cherokee Spiritual Leader and Sexual Healer), and has pursued every opportunity to study and train with other Shamans in shamanic, sexual healing and empowerment methods from all over the world. His name in the Asaga was Stone Heart until his main teacher died when he received a new name of Henowetak which translates as "The Strange Man".
