About Jim

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. (Tangible results)


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. Click here for testimonials

of the effectiveness of this modality. 


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!
