Our History


Author Doug Boyd was involved with the original Wisdom Keepers group and he subsequently devoted his life to fostering cultural understanding of indigenous people from North and South America. With Doug’s passing in 2006, we honor his work by bringing indigenous Elders to the Flint Hills for sharing traditions and insights with those willing to open their hearts and minds to these deep truths.

"May that which is best for all of life come to pass."

Douglas Wright Boyd

April 15, 1935 - October 27, 2006

Doug was a dedicated humanitarian, researcher, lecturer, teacher, activist, internationally known author, and founding director of a not-for-profit organization, including a long-range investigation of traditional and esoteric ideologies.  He traveled all over the world and was a student and friend of adepts and healers of many traditions and cultures. Possessed of incisive wit, he was a master storyteller who shared personal tales of telepathic experiences and communication, rainmaking, and psychic healing from his many years of experience working with and learning from culturally diverse yogis, monks, psychic healers, and medicine people. He was a student of some, a mentor to many, and a friend to more.

Books written by Doug Boyd include: Mad Bear; Rolling Thunder; Mystics, Magicians and Medicine People plus the book Swami: Encounters With Modern Mystics.

Let’s go about our walking work upon this Earth—not as a search for personal enlightenment or gain—but that we might feel our collective heartbeat.
