The roots of A Little Oneness Therapy can be traced deep into the spirituality of the Lipan, Apache of North and Central America. However, in the late 1800's, a member of this spiritual lineage named Stalking Wolf, created another branch in this spiritual tree.
A Little Oneness Therapy is the continued vision of Stalking Wolf.
Stalking Wolf was born in the 1870’s in a band of Lipan, Apache that never surrendered to the United States colonization through treaties. Because of these circumstances, the Lipan have continuously been one of the many federally unrecognized tribes in the United States.
Stalking Wolf grew up in the mountains of Northern Mexico with his people, hiding from authorities during a time of great violence and upheaval. He learned and mastered the traditional spiritual teachings and skills of his people by the time he was 20. His vision then carried him on a 63-year journey away from home through North, Central, and South America.
Indigenous peoples of the Americas were often generous with their riches and shared them through trade routes and centers prior to European colonization. These trade routes and centers were shut down after colonization. However, Stalking Wolf continued this tradition, exchanging skills and spirituality with predominately other indigenous tribes. However, he also discussed religious matters with colonizers, sharing stories and experiences.
Stalking Wolf collected a massive base of skills and spiritual practices from all over the Americas. In so doing, he noticed that there were several common threads in the spirituality that formed a stout foundation. His vision called him to bring understanding, compassion, and healing to the world not just for the indigenous peoples of the Americas but for everyone. So, each spiritual practice was stripped of the cultural dogmas unique to each tribe. What was left were the roots of the spirituality. As a result, this allowed access to the spirituality regardless of cultural, racial, religious, or spiritual background.
The foundation of these spiritual practices are taught to assure the continuation of Stalking Wolf’s vision. As a result, this traditional spiritual lineage is a branch from the Lipan, Apache and should not be interpreted as specifically traditional Lipan teachings. These teachings have been passed down through Tom Brown Jr. and Malcolm Ringwalt.
Full permission has been granted from the Lipan and Stalking Wolf's traditional lineage, to provide these teachings in this way.
