Worldview From The Hopi Perspective

August 29 - August 29, 2020

Grandmother Mona Polacca

Dawahafvoya (Harold Joseph)

Join elders, Mona Polacca (Havasupai/ Hopi/ Tewa), and Harold Joseph (Hopi) for a day of teachings grounded in spiritual connection. These teachings will provide an opportunity for participants to listen, internalize, and reflect on individual and collective behavior towards the Earth and themselves through the lens of the Hopi worldview.

Mona and Harold will provide context, through the Hopi prophecy, for the central teachings that have guided the indigenous people in ways of being in relation to our Mother Earth. This one-day workshop will offer insights into the original instructions that indigenous people uphold today for basic survival.

Teachings grounded in spiritual connection- topics include:

- connection to yourself, Nature, Creator

- our relationship to technology

- the indigenous worldview

- how the indigenous ways of beings have been challenged, especially in the younger generations, loss of language

- the importance of ceremony to keep the balance

- the Hopi prophecy, is not way off in the distant future. It is NOW! The elders saw this     a long time ago and this knowledge has been passed on through oral tradition.

- what was prophesied is already happening, are people ready to listen?
