Barbara Midnight Rose has been studying the Sweet Medicine Sundance path since 1989. She is an apprentice, parent of adult children, teacher and ceremonialist. Since 1993 she has been traveling and teaching internationally, the Wheels and Keys of the Sweet Medicine Sundance path, her ‘path with heart’.
As a single parent Barbara put herself through college (with the support of friends and family) and obtained a teaching diploma focusing on young children. Pursuing her love of children and families she created several innovative programs in the child-care community and as faculty at the college level. In 1990 she co-founded a teaching Lodge in Toronto, Ontario Canada to facilitate her own growth and the growth of the Sweet Medicine Sundance Path in Canada. In 1996 she co-founded the Institute of Contemporary Shamanic Studies, Toronto, Canada which provides classes, lectures and workshops for personal self growth and development.
Barbara’s gifts include working with women of all ages to understand and glean the richness of spirit of all the cycles of being a woman. She works with sisterhood and brotherhood circles facilitating heart to heart communication between them. Barbara loves working with families and holds an abiding love and respect for those who choose parenting as their path.
Barbara’s vision is of working to restore the Rites of Passage that help adults come into more happiness and balance and to help the children make safe passage into healthy adulthood.
