The is the 2nd class in A Series of Four that can be taken separately and does not require that any previous class has been taken to attend. Based on indigenous teachings as I know them this class will be about the 4 stages of life from time we are born until we become an elder in community.
Each stage is purposeful not just through the lessons we learn in each cycle but also the lessons we teach those we are surrounded by as we live through them. Nowadays many have been conditioned to believe that a child’s role is only to learn but indigenous practices show you that they are also here to teach. The influences of each stage is profound when embraced as practice. We not only lived those years but we have more to come as a teacher and student. This class will be a discussion on the less talked about from the reflection we see in a childs eyes to the laughter from elder who makes a mistake. How do celebrate these achievements & milestones, when do celebrate and why should we?
