Hello, my name is James Tree-Gilmore. I am a teacher of
Natural Spirituality and author of the books, “The Way of the
Sacred Pipe, the care and use of the Sacred Pipe” and "The
Athro Technique, How to live a charmed life."
I am a Spiritual Adviser (Minister) for a federally recognized
inter-tribal Native American group based in Pipestone, MN.
I have also served on the board of advisers for the
E.T.Seton Institute, Santa Fe. I have had the honor to share
my unique insights into Nature based spirituality to the
NARBA symposium for Northern Arizona Tribal
Educators two years in a row.
I have served on the advisory board for the Bitterroot
Youth Home and provide spiritual council to inmates in
several State Prison Systems. I give presentations around
the world and conduct ceremonies to help restore the
sacred circle of life with powerful effectiveness.
I have conducted a presentation about indigenous
prophecies and current world events at the United Nations
Headquarters in Vienna, as well as at several universities
worldwide. I have the honor to be the caretaker of the
United Nations Turtle Pipe, a Sacred Pipe created for the UN
by my Elder, Adam Fortunate Eagle in the 1970's.
I am also the caretaker of a very old Black Thunder Pipe.
The responsibility of holding this Pipe was given to me by
Clyde Heavyrunner, the holder of the original Black Thunder
Pipe bundle of the Blackfoot nation in Montana.
(Over 400 years old.)
These Pipes have taken me around the world to conduct
ceremonies for world peace and restoration of the sacred
circle of life, including ceremonies between representatives
of Israel and the Palestinian governments.

Thunder Pipe in Australia.)

drought in Texas, 2011)
I am also the Project coordinator for Montana Integrative
Therapies, a 501c non-profit project that provides at little
or no cost, non-allopathic forms of health support to those
who are in Hospice care, extended care facilities and those
who are chronically ill, and has successfully merged these
therapies with allopathic clinics Montana.
I left a career of over 30 years as a Senior Biomedical
Engineer with one of the largest Medical instrumentation
companies in the world to follow my life calling as a
healer and teacher.
I am a CranioSacral Therapist trained by the Upledger
Institute and Dr. T. Feeney, DO, an internationally known
instructor of Cranial Osteopathy. I teach an amazingly
fast method of releasing restrictions within the human body.
This therapy is revolutionizing the ability to relieve chronic
pain with Therapists and Physicians worldwide.

In 2017 I co-founded the School For Whole Health Therapies
(www.wholehealthschool.com) and I am a member of the
International Association of Health Practitioners.
At 8 years of age I had a powerful encounter with the Divine
while on a camping trip with my father in the north woods of
Michigan. This encounter set the stage for a lifetime of
spiritual instruction through my relationship with nature.
In the fall of 1999, I died as a result of multiple Black Widow
spider bites. I was resuscitated by a Doctor and returned from
the "other side" with unique understandings about life and
our purpose in it.
Soon after I began to travel to share these insights of Natural
Spirituality and the restoration of the human spirit in
relationship to the Creator and all of creation.
What I bring to you is a real and practical restoration to your
purpose here in this lifetime. My quote on any spiritual path
is: "If it works, it is real, if it's real, it will work."
Remember, Tangible results!
