Event Sponsor and Host
San Francisco Zen Center
with Lyla June Johnston and Dr. Rene Henery
This is an online event.
From the organizer:
In this time of pressure, change, and unrest on the planet and within the human psyche, how do we simultaneously tend to ourselves and to the whole? What do we need to heal, as individuals, as a collective, as an ecosystem? What are some of the tools and practices that can support healing at all of these scales? Where can we find the guidance, counsel, and support necessary to negotiate this time of transition?
This conversation in the “Beyond Words” series joins Indigenous environmental scientist, educator, organizer, and musician Lyla June Johnston and deep ecologist, artist, and writer/speaker Dr. Rene Henery. Together, Lyla June—of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne), and European lineages, and Rene—of Guyanese and European lineages, will explore these questions and the related themes of race, ecology, regeneration, and decolonization.
This conversation will seek to uncover pathways from a place of entitlement in relationship to life and the earth to a place of humility and service, as well as the critical roles of personal healing, feminine wisdom, and indigenous leadership in that transition. In the process, Lyla June and Rene will draw on their personal and professional journeys to share guidance and practices for decolonization, healing, re-connection, and recovery of belonging.
This event is hosted by San Francisco Zen Center.
