Dropping the Illusion of ‘Dominion Over’ to Accomplishing Together in Harmony with the Earth
Community Dialogue with Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo
November 3, 2018, 3PM to 4:30 PM, 50 Quincy Avenue, Cambridge MA
We are living through times of great change requiring that we broaden our view of who we are and our relationship with the Earth and all living beings. From the wisdom of Tsalagi (Cherokee) and indigenous people worldwide and Tibetan Buddhist teachings, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo will speak about mindsets that obstruct seeing our inter-relationship with all living beings and the Earth, and how we shift to a mindset of accomplishing together in ways that benefit all. We invite you to join us in this important community dialogue.

At the 2018 Native American Elders Gathering at the Sunray Peace Village, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo called for and initiated a dialogue around the mindset of “dominion over” and how we must transform it to accomplish together. The survival of Mother Earth and all living beings depend on this transformation.
