How can we actively value Indigenous cultures in the 21st century? This workshop introduces some Indigenous ways of being. It offers ways to transform your vision and to discover that appreciating the spiritual dimension of reality can transform your life work and the lives of others.
Dr Chris Kavelin (hon. Research Fellow at the Australian Catholic University) has a PhD in Law with a thesis on the protection of Indigenous medical knowledge. He works to support the sovereignty of traditional healers around the world. His latest book is Nudges from Grandfather: Honouring Indigenous Spiritual Technologies. Chris’ father was a psychologist who specialised in Indigenous psychology. They lived on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming where Chris experienced his own spiritual and cultural blindness. This awareness, combined with learning the practice of humility as a means of restoring vision has informed his research methodology ever since.
