Indigenous wisdom offers insights into our history and provides a pathway toward harmony with others and deepened connections to Mother Earth.

“Right now, indigenous knowledge is at the heart of human survival.”—Sherri Mitchell

In a time marked by societal upheaval and dramatic environmental changes, it is common to feel overwhelmed and hopeless. Indigenous wisdom offers insights that can help us understand how we arrived at this point, and provides a pathway toward harmony with others and deepened connections to Mother Earth.

This powerful retreat is led by Indigenous scholars Sherri Mitchell (Penahwapskek Nation), Steven Newcomb (Shawnee/Lenape), and Clan Mother Miigam’agan (Mi’kmaq First Nation). Through their storytelling, wisdom teachings, and fireside discussions, we gain tools and guidance to:

  • Explore the collective, historical trauma that is at the root of our disconnection with one another and Mother Earth
  • Understand the impacts of colonization on our thinking, ways of being, and relationships
  • Reconnect the heart-based wisdom of the Mother into our decision-making and values

Return home with hope, grounded in evidence-based experience and knowledge that have formed the basis of indigenous teachings for millennia.
