“In community there is unity Within the web of existence, no one stands alone Individual strands come together Alchemically transforming Creating a tapestry of life force wisdom To blanket out the cold”

Many people today are disconnected from their family, community, heritage and the land. Now, more than ever, it is vital to provide opportunities to reconnect, restore, heal, and re-empower. Years ago, I took a conscious vow to serve the people in whatever way I was led. As a result, I have offered myself as a physician and medicine woman, a teacher of spiritual tradition, a facilitator and bridge between the worlds, a birth coach, a death walker, and sometimes just a comforting voice and an outstretched hand. I have, with the help of many on both sides, established a holistic health center and a spiritual community, and am in the process of creating a new series of workshops, training manuals and mixed media teaching aids, as well as an educational institution.

Although initially registered in 2008, the “SharetheWisdom Institute” is still in its infancy. It was initially established to be utilized as an umbrella structure under whose auspices I, and others, would join together to share information and teach locally, nationally, and internationally.

The mission of the SharetheWisdom Institute is, simply put, to unite, empower, affirm, and expand. With my own evolving curriculum, and a potential faculty of amazing and gifted professionals, we hope to offer the opportunity to facilitate the unification of other, like-minded individuals, to affirm their inner knowing, empower them in their lives, and expand their vision of themselves and how they walk in the world.

Moving through the world with passion, clear vision, authenticity, and integrity can positively affect all life around us. Thus, on a fundamental level, the purpose of the SharetheWisdom Institute is to offer encouragement to “look at the bigger picture,” to “re-member” our true selves, and to learn to listen, to feel, and to trust. Like a stone thrown into a still pond, the effects can ripple out, supporting others to learn for themselves what will provide them with wholeness and balance, keep their sparks lit, and walk in relationship with all.

I have been told and firmly believe that we, as a people, currently stand at a crossroads in time and space on this earthwalk—politically, economically, socially, environmentally and spiritually. Great changes are on the horizon and how we prepare for and face them now will deeply affect us all in the days to come. Some of these events have been shown to me and some are not yet for me to know. However, what I do know is that our children matter, our elders matter, our ancestral and tribal lineages matter, and that we all must work as a community to sustain each other and our Mother planet. By becoming more of who we truly are, we can give ourselves the opportunity to stand as beacons for others, role models for those whose lives we touch and, regardless of the format upon which we give, to become true agents of change. It is time for us to circle back to the past and bring forth its wisdom into the present in order to create the future. It is the only way we will survive.

SharetheWisdom Institute is currently evolving in its scope, utilizing not only its own resources, but seeking to collaborate with other individuals and organizations who share a similar vision. As we grow, I invite and encourage your participation as well.

I have found it to be true that every person and event encountered offers a teaching that, if seen as such, can provide opportunity for greater understanding. I have gratitude for what I have gleaned from my affiliation with other co-conspirators over the years; whether in personal interactions or indirectly, as individuals or en masse, their wisdom, depth of perception and generosity of heart have encouraged and supported my growth.

Those who have been influential in my journey are far too numerous to mention but, listed below, you will find some who have been particularly inspirational resources—perhaps you will find them to be so as well!

First and foremost I extend great appreciation to Mr. Charlie Griffin, web master extraordinaire, for his willingness, patience and skill to see me through my coming of age, often kicking and screaming, into the techno-world of social media: http://webexpertcharlie.com/

“Before moving to Albuquerque four years ago, we asked our current Acupuncturist for a recommendation on where to take our special needs daughter for acupuncture. Dr. Polasky was at the top of his list. Dr. Polasky was more than happy to add our daughter as one of her clients. She listened intently to a list of needs we had for our daughter and then took the time to sit and evaluate h..

Unlike other websites focused on fees and insurance, Dr. P..

“I have known Dr. Polasky approximately 20 years. Diane opened me up to the realm of shamanism. As a teenager I didn’t even know what a shaman was, I just thought it sounded mysterious. She taught me, along with many others, how to walk in different worlds and how to connect with the spirits. It changed my world and it changed my life. Over the years, as I have gone deeper into this practice, ..

“I first met Diane more than 15 years ago. I got to know her as a friend, then as an excellent acupuncturist and then one day she told me about this spiritual circle she led. As she explained the concepts of Druidry and how they fit into her life, I then met her as one of my teachers. Diane invited me to her circle of twenty or so people. I learned that she had been teaching and leading Druid..

“I first met Dr. Polasky several years ago when I was suffering from a painful case of sciatica.  I came to her because of a glowing recommendation from a co-worker.  I had tried traditional medical care to stop the pain and it had not helped.  Her use of acupuncture along with a few sessions of physical therapy that she recommended freed me from the condition.  Since then she has continued ..
