This program is designed as a live event and will not be recorded.
Welcome to Indigenous Insight, a monthly gathering. Throughout 2022, join IMS teachers Jeanne Corrigal (member of the mixed heritage Métis Nation), Jeff Haozous (member of the Fort Sill Apache Tribe), and Bonnie Duran (an Opelousas/Coushatta descendant), as they bring together Indigenous voices and hearts to explore the Buddha’s teachings through the lens of the Indigenous experience.
Each session will feature a short talk, silent or guided meditation, and a Q&A or other opportunity for discussion. Core themes include...
- Connecting with other Indigenous folks in the safety of the shared experience;
- Creating space for dialogue, and for stillness;
- Pausing the cycles of “doing,” and rediscovering the joys of “being,” together.
- Stepping out of our day-to-day experience to touch the inner space of the heart;
- Experiencing the calming and nurturing benefits of practice;
- Identifying the near-universal need for healing, and finding pathways back to health and wholeness.
- Honoring and sharing the practices that unite Indigenous people and those that are unique to a particular view or origin;
- Valuing each other, our ancestors, and our descendants;
- Learning from the four elements and establishing or re-establishing a deeper relationship with our outer, and inner, world.
While we understand that many non-Indigenous people may be interested in participating, we ask that they refrain from joining this program which is specifically offered to provide shelter and respite to our Indigenous community.
