Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
How do you find balance and inner peace in a world rocked by instability? In the telling of her story, shamanic psychologist Leslie Gray speaks to the importance of learning from our past, and takes us on a journey to an indigenous world where the earth is honored and people live together in peace on Turtle Island. She encourages Euro-Americans to “walk the ground, walk on the bones of your ancestors. Once you’ve done that and know where your people come from you can finally have real respect for the land here and the aboriginal traditions.” Gray reminds us that the roots of the American Constitution and our democracy are found in the Iroquois Confederacy, a continuing tradition which, from the beginning, embraced equal rights and forbade slavery. She urges us to visit sustainable indigenous communities not to take, but to learn and give back. (hosted by Michael Toms)
