About the Artist
Kenneth Cohen is a health and cultural educator, a traditional healer, and scholar of indigenous medicine. He is the recipient of the Alyce and Elmer Green Award for Innovation and Lifetime Achievement in Energy Medicine. Best known for his pioneering work in Chinese healing arts (qigong), he has followed the "Red Road" of Native American wisdom as his personal spiritual path for most of his 60+ years. Ken comes from a multi-cultural and multi-racial background. Though respecting the Judaism of his North African and Russian ancestors, Ken was not brought up within this religion or with knowledge of its customs. Ken was the only apprentice to Cherokee spiritual teacher Keetoowah Christie (great grandson of Ned Christie), during the 1970s and was one of two people comprehensively trained by the esteemed medicine man, Rolling Thunder. He also worked with elders from the Northeast, Northwest, and Northern Plains.
