Dr. Yuria Celidwen

I am of Indigenous Nahua and Maya descent of the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico. My work intersects Indigenous studies, cultural psychology, and contemplative studies. I investigate the embodied experience of self-transcendence in Indigenous contemplative traditions and the way it enhances prosocial behavior (ethics, compassion, kindness, awe, sacredness, and love). My thesis on the “ethics of belonging” offers an earth-based ecology that engenders wellness and purpose through relational ecological awareness. My work emphasizes the reclamation, revitalization, and transmission of Indigenous wisdom and the advancement of Indigenous and planetary rights. My website is yuriacelidwen.com
