This eternal and perennial wisdom is hard to grasp by the human mind, which tends to see the world dualistically: right/wrong, male/female, sacred/profane. The contemplative, non-dual mind, however, can restore our understanding of the interdependence of all things. It holds paradox, and it is unitive. This session will explore how unifying, and balancing the complementary feminine and masculine aspects of Divine Wisdom is essential to our approaching wholeness, and the non-dual mind." ----------------------------- THE 23RD ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FAITHS, 'Sacred Insight - Feminine Wisdom' is a five-day nationally acclaimed multi-faith celebration of music, poetry, art, film, and dialogue with spiritual leaders, practitioners, and teachers. 24 - 28 April, 2018 | Louisville, KY More Information: https://festivaloffaiths.org The 2018 Festival explores practices, teachings, and insight rooted in Feminine wisdom.

Lyla June - Nihimá Nahasdzáán: Healing Women and Nature Through a Diné (Navajo) Lens | Bioneers

This talk was delivered at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. Introduction by Nina Simons, Bioneers Co-Founder and Relationship Strategist. Lyla June -- poet, musician, anthropologist, educator, public speaker and community organizer of Diné, Cheyenne and European lineages -- has inspired audiences around the world with a message of personal, collective and ecological healing. Drawing from her studies in Human Ecology and the traditional ancestral Diné worldview with which she grew up, she’ll explore the links between environmental destruction and "rape culture" and how we can heal and transform ourselves and our society. Lyla will delve into how the healing of women can unleash the healing of men and how we have to heal humanity to heal the Earth. She’ll share paradigm-shifting techniques from the heart of the hogan that help mend the broken heart of the Western world. https://dreamwarriors.co/artists/lyla-june/ *** Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.
