Voices of Wisdom 2018 Southeast

Voices of Wisdom brings you together with Indigenous elders that embody ancestral wisdom. At this event, held around a Sacred Fire, elders speak and offer perspectives and experiences that will help you feel more aware of the sacred world around you.

The way toward a long-term sustainable future is to individually and collectively regain empathy with each other and the natural world. Through Indigenous ancestral wisdom, Voices of Wisdom opens your heart to feel renewed connections within yourself, amongst participants and with the living world.

At the Sacred Fire Community in Asheville, N.C., Voices of Wisdom welcomes elders Pahan Pte San Win (Lakota, Cree & Metis) and Wanbdi Wakita (Dakota) for Taku Wakan, Something Sacred.

One day Wanbdi had a powerful vision that changed his life. Since then he has had the job of making prayers for people. Pahan Pte San Win tells us, “The first time I had a vision I was 8 years old.” Learn what it means to have a vision and where that sacred experience can take you.

Our program with the elders will take place on Saturday. Participants will then return for a fire circle on Sunday evening that will help them assimilate the teachings and experiences with the elders from the day before. This fire will be hosted and facilitated by Patrick Hanaway and Lisa Lichtig, initiated firekeepers for Sacred Fire Asheville.
