Panel: How we can draw on indigenous wisdom for the challenges facing us now
In this panel, Anita, Lily, and Michelle will discuss the inner conditions for regenerative, harmonious relations with Self, other People, and the Earth.
Come join a storytelling circle, where three coaches share their stories about what Indigenous wisdom means to them and how they use this wisdom in their coaching realm. And, you will be invited to leave with something to take forward in a practical way, that will tend to self, others, and Mother Nature.
