Interactive Community Conversation: Being in Right Relationship—The Indigenous Wisdom of the Four Sacred Gifts

Bioneers brings together a very diverse, discerning, engaged and reflective community, and the curated conversations around crucial topics we have been hosting recently (“Community Conversations”) have proven highly popular and stimulating. Each session begins with a very brief presentation by a noted thought leader as a “conversation starter” to frame the topic, followed by structured group discussion. At the end, a talented spoken word artist “harvests” the essence of what was said in a poetic synthesis and performs it for the group.  

In this session, Anita Sanchez will start us off by drawing from her award-winning book, The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times, to explain how unity, healing, hope-in-action, and the ability to forgive the unforgivable are the key life-tools (the “four sacred gifts”) we must cultivate if we are to achieve our full potential as a collective life-giving force in the “One Hoop of Life.” We will then engage in facilitated conversation, as we seek to bring our most creative thinking forward, and weave our hearts, minds, and voices into a collective braid.           

With: Anita L Sanchez, Ph.D., (Aztec/Mexican American), deeply experienced trainer/coach, author, member of the Transformational Leadership Council, and Bioneers and Pachamama Alliance board member. Facilitated by: Amy Lenzo, weDialogue and the World Café Community Foundation; David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture and UCSC Right Livelihood College. “Harvester:” Jason Bayani, author, theater performer, Artistic Director, Kearny Street Workshop.
