For those of us in the Euro-diaspora who have been separated from pastoral, small village, or Indigenous systems for many eons, it can be extremely challenging to recover the earth-emergent worldview(s) that our ancestors held. By the time the explorers and settlers arrived on the shores of Turtle Island, honoring natural law and living in balance with Earth Community had already been outdated concepts for centuries in Europe. Our ancestors were part of a social organization based on hierarchy and control, and instead of taking their cues from the Indigenous civilizations already thriving in the “new world” they went on to repeat the colonial pattern. Today, the challenge of our generation is to address the disconnect from our homelands, locate and heal old traumas and habits of colonization, and find valid ways to reclaim our bonds to place, while at the same time approaching restitution and making amends to Indigenous peoples.

Dear Kindred Community-
In keeping with the spirit of our nonprofit mission to envision and bring forward a wisdom-based, wellness-informed society, we have curated for you a timely, helpful, hopeful, and practical collection of posts, podcasts and videos. Kindred’s new contributor, Pegi Eyers, moves us toward the possibilities of collective healing and its impact on Peaceful Co-existence & Unity in Diversity.
Continuing down the path of our biology’s capacity for healing ourselves and our planet, Kindred’s brilliant and compassionate founder, Kelly Wendorf, shares with us ways to recognize the trauma of colonization showing up in our bodies and how we can decolonize ourselves as a step toward liberating our body’s intelligences.
The long-anticipated and highly-acclaimed book The Evolved Nest: Nature’s Way of Raising Children and Creating Connected Communities by Darcia Narvaez and Gay Bradshaw was released this month. Resources for the new Evolved Nest book include Gabor Maté’s foreword and the first chapter of the book.
You can join the 28 Days of Solo Play on all of Kindred and the Evolved Nest’s social media pages, including our safe space on our Mighty Networks platform at www.KindredCommunity.org.
Warmly, Lisa Reagan, Editor
