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. 

We are looking for Original People and Indigenous guests for this year. If you are an indigenous person or you are someone who knows of a group who can use a platform to bring thier message please let me know at Terra@treesisters.org.

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

  

 

Thank you everyone for joining us and continuing on our journey to meet more original people and helping them to get their word out to a wider audience. This month's call is is such a powerful message from Pat McCabe (Women Stands Shining). 

Get ready to challenge your beliefs and open to a deeper conection with Nature, with this Listening Session with Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining). The event was held in late October as part of the Living Nature Series 2021 created by Flourishing Diversity and Invisible Dust.

Pat’s words take us on a journey of discovery, opening our hearts and shifting default mindsets.She enables us to upturn and re-centre our place in the world, redefining concepts of masculine, feminine, sustainability, and so much more.

Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining) is a Diné (Navajo) mother, grandmother, activist, artist, writer, ceremonial leader, and international speaker. She draws upon the Indigenous sciences of ‘Thriving Life’ to reframe questions about sustainability and balance, and she is devoted to supporting the next generations, Women’s Nation and Men’s Nation, in being functional members of the “Hoop of Life” and upholding the honour of being human.



Pat’s listeners included Alison Sudol, an American singer and actor, Wendy Tan White, a British technology entrepreneur and CEO of Intrinsic, an Alphabet company, and Daniel Growald, a 5th generation descendant of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller. The session was hosted by Clare Dubois, founder of TreeSisters.

The Living Nature 2021 programme brought together global voices representing art, science and Indigenous knowledge to share vital contributions to the climate conversation regarding our relationship within Nature.
