The Red Bird Center is a Trauma Recovery Center, located in the forest in southeastern Ohio. Our mission is to provide opportunities for healing, education, and community celebration for individuals and families who have suffered trauma and loss. Our foundation is centered in the "Indigenous Healing Model" that restores the spirit and brings unity and connection within communities. We are a Multicultural Healing Center that celebrates and welcomes all cultures and faiths. The Red Bird Center has been in operation since 1997 and is a Native non-profit organization.
The basic philosophy of the Center is as follows:
Anyone who seeks to heal...can
Healing is a creative process
The answers to our healing are as unique as we are
Personal responsibility is absolutely essential
Healing that invites Spirit into the experience, honoring the truth of the soul, is the most successful (We honor that each Faith and Culture has a beautiful expression of the Spirit.)
Healing occurs most powerfully with the support of one's community
Right now, in our society, we need to heal ourselves and the Earth. Disharmony among the people is great, but so are the healing opportunities. The Center's Founder, Shianne Eagleheart, and the Staff are dedicated to the healing of the Earth and Her people: all nations, all creeds.
The Center is also active in Restorative Justice, promoting a healing model to effectively respond to crime in America and support the development of safer communities.
