While working as a family physicans in a Native American hospital in the Southwest, Carl Hammerschlag was introduced to a patient named Santiago, a Pueblo priest & clan chief, who asked him where he had learned how to heal.

Hammerschlag responded almost by rote, rattling off his medical education, intership & certification. The old man replied,Do you know how to dance? To humor Santiago, Hammerschlag shuffled his feet at the priests bedside. Despite his condition, Santiago got up & demonstrated the proper steps. You must be able to dance if you are to heal people,he admonished the young doctor. I can teach you my steps, but you will have to hear your own music.

Hammerschlag synthesizes his Jewish heritage with his experience with Native Americans to produce a practice open to all methods of healing. He discovers the wisdom of the Pueblo priests question to his Western doctor, Do you know how to dance?
