Join Indigenous rights activist and spiritual teacher, Sherri Mitchell, for a live online conversation exploring Native American mythology and cosmology as a means of healing our collective wounds. In her work, Sherri employs Indigenous wisdom, as well as a broad understanding of cultural and generational trauma in ways that support deep collective healing.

Learn how Sherri creates deep roots for spiritual and social change by fusing traditional Indigenous teachings with the foundational laws of the universe to guide us to a more serene and balanced quality of life. Sherri offers an exploration of core spiritual values, universal expressions of balance, and the four foundations of self-determined societies as guides for healing and social change.

Discover Indigenous pathways towards healing collective trauma and reconnecting with our spiritual source.

Please note that this talk will be hosted live online. Instructions on how to join the conversation will be included in your event confirmation email. If you need additional assistance finding or joining the event, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu.
