Lewis Mehl-Madrona: Defining Coyote Psychotherapy In the recent meetings of the Institute for Psychiatric Services in San Francisco, Barbara Mainguy and I presented material on how we work with psychosis.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona: Day 1 of Australia 2013: The Autobiographical Narrative Each year we make a cross-cultural tour to Australia, though one of our Coyote colleagues comes twice a year to make an impact on incorporating culture in health care for aboriginal people.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona: Why can't the sundance feeling last all year long?
