Dr. Dansie has said that cultural wisdom is the collective insights of our ancestors, which guide us on our journey to our true self. Cultural wisdom focuses on four ancestral elements: earth, water, air and fire. Each one represents a physical, emotional, mental and energy intelligence. In our larger circle, cultural wisdom through balance and compassion applies to the four dimensions of consciousness, conduct, culture and community.
These core Native American principles can render extraordinary benefits not only to the indigenous population, but also to people of all cultures. These principles, which he learned at the knee of his Maya/Toltec grand mother, have been of great advantage to him, his family and the community in terms of life, health, education and resiliency when meeting challenges or adversity.
Roberto will help us make sense of sense of our differences with these four elements of Native American Wisdom and how to make a path with the heart and cultivate positive energy.
