An open space for global conversation
"Friends of Lakota" is a collaborative gathering artistically sculpting and designing a new circle of learning committed to peace in unity between Ancient Oral Native Life Ways (indigenous peoples connected to the land~earth) and the at large massive perspectives that have arisen in civilization currently controlling systemic patterns and flows in human ecological conditional situation. We believe there is a way to find a new balance, wholeness and maturity in the future in questioning, a quest for the wholeness in the hunger of our shared human heart.
We see the possibility of a mutual liberation through our living caring voices that share authentic permanent heart felt human concerns in the breakdowns arising in our daily lives as an opportunity to breakthrough and design a future world together benefiting our virtual identities, our communities, all peoples and the beauty in the web of life we all love.
We offer a new notion of a "Clearing for Learning" that begins by suspending what we know, our certainties of what is happening, owning authentically what current owns us, and exploring unknown landscapes and territories disclosing new worlds in living languages through deep appreciated speech acts in open inquiry and dialog.
We propose to break open the heart of being Homo sapiens amans ~ loving wise~sing up social beings in a new pattern of dignified social interactions as a mutual liberated learning of our kinship within the interior splace of the human heart.
We are an imaginal circle operating in open appreciative inquiry and dialog for both indigenous peoples and leading edge ecological awareness committing to collaborate and design a future world together valuing the deep shared roots of our humanness as dignified contributors to a new discourse bringing forth institutional changes for sustainability caring for future generations, children of tomorrow.
You are invited to participate in this leadingship learning experience, organizing, designing, and formulating specific break outs into domains of inquiry dreaming of possible possibilities in the wonder of mutual liberation in dignity for the web of all life on earth.
We are common ordinary people with no authoritarian claims, rank, titles, positions or publications in our reflective growing aspirations, yet honor roles and processes in social organizations. The Lakota people are an ancient unit of our humanity over 10,000 years old and are offering a spectacular clearing for learning in 2012!
The Lakota history has intersected in the last 150 years the injustice, marginalization, inequality and inter-generational trauma produced by the social political and economic patterns and flows worldwide in the Discovery Doctrine that has operated in western civilization since 1492. Our quest in a manner of Wolakota, a treaty of peace and friendship without greed, is to end the poverty cycle in human affairs. In a courageous manner, the Lakota still know love as the inclusive sustainability in the ancient wisdom continuum of adorning one another in human dignity as a joyful concern embedded in an ancient ancestral praxis of living in realization.
Our perspective is that every indigenous language is an ancient, wise repository for our own humanness as Homo sapiens amans today that is biologically awakening to knowing love in liberated social interactions in our humanity as a whole.
Let us, together, begin to learn and work at designing a new future. Thank you for your attention in this regard and if I can be of service in any of your reflections please feel free to respond in public or privately,
