Yuria Celidwen – The “Ethics of Belonging” of Indigenous Traditions

Introduction by Alexis Bunten, Co-Director of Bioneers’ Indigeneity Program

“In community we pause, we open, we nourish, and we become.”  

Yuria Celidwen is of Nahua and Maya descent from the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, born into a family lineage of mystics, healers, and poets. Her scholarship centers on Indigenous forms of contemplation and has developed into a broader statement she calls the “ethics of belonging.” It has become evident that when we pay attention to the world around us, all we hear is urgency. It is time for community reflection. Yuria will share two core guiding principles from her scholarship, Kin Relationality and Ecological Belonging. She will explain how these concepts can help us access an ever-expansive unfolding of a path of meaning and participation rooted in honoring Life.
