healing through time in the luminous string of lives, by Maria Morin McCoy
Time & Location
About the Event
In our first maskihkiy monday, Maria will share an old Anishinaabe teaching called the Aanikobijigan (The String of Lives). The String of Lives that ties us together is the ancestral wisdom, knowledge and resiliency of our ancestors that is encoded in our DNA and is passed down through the luminous Aanikobijigan. Through the Aanikobijigan we are able to heal trauma imprints and tap into the collective cultural wisdom of our ancestors . Our DNA memory wakes up when we begin our healing journey and connects us to our cultural practices. Through healing we can change the structure of our DNA, access the wisdom from the trauma, and begin our journey back to wellbeing. Time is collapsed, healing the past and future within the present moment.
NOTE: This session provides the foundational teachings for a forthcoming spirit doll making workshop that will be facilitated by Maria in spring 2021. Attendees do not need to attend both sessions, but those interested in making a spirit doll are encouraged to attend this workshop on Aanikobijigan.
congruent with traditional protocols, maskihkiy mondays are pay-what-you-can with 100% of offerings going directly to the kihtehayah sharing in the current session. sessions are otherwise unfunded. hay hay & chi miigwetch to our kihtehayak for sharing out of generosity & love for our communities.
