What is this course about?
Relationship anchors our humanity; it is the foundation of identity and community/social development.
The heart carries the pain of many generations. This may be pain from oppression, suppression, separation, alienation, wounding, trauma, grief, and loss. It can be felt as emotional pain; showing up as depression, anxiety, anger, feeling numb, disconnection and other ways that mentally and physical affect us and our interactions.
Wounding, pain, and trauma can occur from intentional or unintentional mind, body, and heart-soul aggressions. Experiences as a child growing up, the backpacks we were given (privilege, oppression), beliefs we were consciously (or unconsciously) taught, injustice, inequality, acts of violence, racism/racial bias, prejudice as well as cultural and ancestral-transgenerational trauma all affect the core of our being. The healing of individuals, families, relationships, communities, nations, and the environment— the world require repairing the damage of this pain. Until the damage is repaired it will continue to show up as intentional and unintentional aggressions against humanity.
Individual & Collective Healing
Ancient cultures often created space for healing in relationship and community. Personal lineages, family ancestors were included in the work for healing across past, present, and future generations. This was spiritual; but, in the context that the mind, body, and heart-soul are spirit manifest, spirit as form. Relationship, (i.e., heart to heart, nature) maintained balance and restored the community. Health, wellbeing, and prosperity were dependent on healing relationship.
Our nation and the world are reeling with pain that spans from the present to hundreds (perhaps thousands) of years. The only way forward for true change requires the healing of the aggressions (intentional and unintentional) and the heart. Healing allows for new relationship that eradicates oppression, suppression, separation, alienation, and acts of violence, racism, prejudice, injustice, and inequality threatening humanity, impacting all life and the planet. It is time to heal.
