Meering ceremony, Norma Yontry and Janice Yontry Roberts
Norma Yontry (right) and her niece Janice Yontry Roberts (left) are using meering as a form of therapy. This silent communication is transmitting subconscious dialogue between the two about Janice's marital concerns. She is seeking healing and comfort through meering. Norma guides her silently through different hand positions that are used to relieve inner stresses when touching the root. The two of them have made a commitment to meet regularly and have meering sessions until the situation is calmed. Janice later mentioned to me that meering had been her coping tool and a necessary form of therapy.
