This series is a place for indigenous people to share their wisdom, their cultural heritage, their beliefs, and the challenges that they face. It is also for groups who work to help indigenous people to bring a voice to their needs and offer ways that you can get involved.

The purpose of the series is to open our hearts and minds to cultures who have treasured our planet and could share with us insights that we can use to become more connected with nature and each other. We hope that you will be inspired, informed and intrigued.

Everyone is welcome and the calls are free.  Simply sign up to be on the email list and you will receive each month's guest by email so you can listen at any time. 

Thank you for being with us!

“Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it." ~ Bruce Lipton

Please note: The June conversation will be released next week by the 16th. Our guest wanted to add to the conversation, which is why it has been delayed from the 9th.


On our Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth series in June, Terra Canova is speaking to Anne Marie Chomat, the leader of a small grassroots organisation in Guatemala, called Buena Semilla (Good Seed), holding at its heart the collective empowerment of women and girls living in marginalised, indigenous communities of the global South. Buena Semilla co-creates safe spaces for women to come together and empower one another, becoming agents of change in their lives, families and communities. This is accomplished through Women's Circles, and mentoring local women to rise up as leaders of Women's Circles and beyond.


The stories she shares about how her research to help 'stunting' evolved into these amazing circles that continue to grow and change lives will inspire you. We do also need to offer a trigger warning about violence against women, including loss of life, which is discussed as it is a very commom issue in Guatemala.

Until the conversation is ready please feel free to visit their website at:
