Medicine Dance
Prompted by a bad mammogram, Marsha Scarbrough, a middle-aged divorcee with a downhill career in film production, sought healing from Native American mystic Joseph Rael, also known as "Beautiful Painted Arrow".

The amazing result of his treatment inspired Marsha to begin an apprenticeship in this ancient tradition. In her engaging narrative memoir, Marsha shares the wisdom gained from her experiential participation in Native American shamanism and illustrates the relevance of its ancient teachings to contemporary life.

Though the "lessons" of Medicine Dance have similarities to the material presented by Don Miguel Ruiz, Carlos Castaneda and Lynn Andrews, they are embedded in a fast-paced narrative memoir that covers the ground of ordinary life- relationships, co-dependency, work and health problems. Marsha's story proves that if she can walk this path, anyone can.

The Magic of Martial Arts
Teaches children how to use karate…and when NOT to use it! “Master Eastwest”, a magical martial artist, shows children how to defend themselves from harm…but first he asks them to promise that they will only use karate when a life is in danger.

Three powerful sing-along songs encourage solving problems peacefully…by walking away from trouble, controlling anger and feeling like a winner inside.

Running time: 30 minutes
For ages 4 to 9
