Play is a Form of Healing

One evening while we were in Supai, there was a Ceremonial Sound Healing at the village meeting place. A couple of observations about the experience...

There were nearly as many visitors as villagers at the ceremony.

The healers themselves were not natives.

The lead healer at one point said that "play is a form of healing." Here's the proof of this. While there is a natural distance between adult visitors and villagers, no such gap exists among children. All it took was a tetherball setup and Julie and Z were having great fun with some village kids. If only it were that easy for the rest of us...
