Join Dr. Lyla June Johnston in this illuminating community conversation as she shares ways in which indigenous food systems of the past and present teach us how to relate to our inner and outer world. These highly successful systems have been proven to operate based on respect, reverence, responsibility, and reciprocity.

Themes explored, among others:

  • How can we manifest these qualities within ourselves and into the world?
  • How can ancient wisdom help with modern ills?
  • How does inner life reflect in outer behavior?
