"When you are learning lessons well and moving without resistance, you will have an option to move faster. A door will open for you. You and only you may move through the door." -Art Runningbear
From the Whiteriver community of North Central Arizona, Runningbear was born to and raised in a long lineage of the medicine clan of the Whitemountain Apache Tribe. At the age of five, he was brought to the Grandfathers and Grandmothers to begin his journey towards fulfilling his role as a healer and a seer for the people.
This journey has brought him around the world, where his high level of integrity and ethics have enabled him to both teach and learn with some of the greatest and most elusive spiritual beings; including the Zen masters in Japan, Buddhist monks in Tibet and the Sudanese natives in North Africa.
Some of his students include American actress, film producer and director, Demi Moore; American actor, screenwriter, film producer and director, Denzel Washington; renowned Ama-Deus healer, Dexter Leland.
