Chasing a Good Day to Die

In 1995, Latter-day Saints Paul and Ann Larsen found themselves in the middle of the kind of nightmare parents dread most. Their fifteen-year-old son, Erik, was in a deep depression that two years of counseling and anti-depressant medications were unable to alleviate. As they watched their son slipping away, they went searching for something—anything—that might help him. To their surprise, both Erik and Paul (who had experienced his own loss of hope) found renewal and a healing that continues to this day through their participation in native American curing ceremonies that included the use of sweat lodges and peyote.
