The defining motifs of the industrial growth society include the subjugation of “otherness” – anything that does not align itself with its profit-driven, exploitative, and life-deadening ideology serving the “advancement” of a few at the expense of​ nature, people, and the vibrant, creative energies of our souls. This subjugation is so endemic that the price our inner humanity has paid may seem unclear to us – a common phenomenon when a particular way of life, however destructive, becomes normalized.


In this webinar, we will look more closely at some of our society’s most pervasive ideologies and how they lead to the repression of essential dimensions of our human existence. Also, we’ll explore together ways to recover those aspects of ourselves that are most vital and authentic, while discussing the risks we might need to take ​(or have taken) ​during this retrieval.

Deepening, we again call people of European descent who are:


inspired to open up channels to Ancestors of family or cultural lineage so as to craft a fuller relationship: reducing the “splitting-off” of wisdom and beauty as well as traumas and patterns of oppression

roused to look more deeply at the ways race-based “privilege” operates for them today by reckoning with the actions of their families in previous generations as well as today

ready to integrate the travesties, tragedies and triumphs of their family heritage into the life they are leading now

open to exploring their relationship to the abandoned land of their forbearers and the expropriated land they live on now

charged by viewing this exploration as a contribution they can make to social justice issues and to future beings

able to commit to full attendance of this exploratory workshop and excited by experiential learning: movement, art and ceremony
