To Really Reclaim the Heart of Our Humanity, Let Us Also Claim the Heart of Our Divinity.

Saniel BonderIn summer 2015 we learned that the ‘Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee’ team had been accepted to offer presentations and an interactive workshop at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, which convened in mid-October in Salt Lake City.

The theme of this year’s Parliament was ‘Reclaiming the Heart of Our Humanity.’ Jean Fleury, the Lakota Sioux Grandmother who is truly the leading vision-bearer for this whole initiative, asked me to address in my speech the whole matter of multi-generational and multi-lineal wounding — the fact of its biological as well as psychological and emotional reality, and what its healing really takes. We also felt it was important for me to bring in the bio-spiritual mysteries and potentials hidden in our hearts.

Thus, this presentation, ‘To Really Reclaim the Heart of Our Humanity, Let Us Also Claim the Heart of Our Divinity.’ It’s a great privilege to share it with you here.

Updates from the Chief Big Foot Memorial Reunion Ride – Bridger, SD and Four Corners, SD

Tuesday 12/22 the riders, walkers and runners gather for Ceremony, Blessings and Pledges for the Ride, Riders and Walkers.

Daniel, Afraid of Hawk who was with us on the 1990 ride, now 95yrs young joined to bless the ride the night before they circled and Gathered.

Daniel is an original Lakota cowboy. His father survived the massacre. Strong as a bull – he was adamant about being a part of this year’s ride festivities. All of us could learn about being a loving parent and friend from Daniel. 

Here are pictures of Daniel on the 1990 ride, and at Bridger, SD for the start of the Ride, and Blessing.
