Looking At the Environment From an Indigenous Peoples' Perspective

with Four Arrows (aka: Don Trent Jacobs)



The foundational understanding of oneness with all via 40 interrelated precepts was practiced by humans for most of our time on earth. That has largely been overshadowed by a worldview that has separated us from ways of being that were proven sustainable. This workshop offers a "dehypnotizing technology" for rebalancing the dominant and the Indigenous worldview with the goal of ultimately rebalancing life systems on Earth.
