Aniwa proudly presents Diné (Navajo) elder Jerry Nelson sharing profound wisdom from his tradition explaining the flow of life through the months and the seasons and how they are interconnected to all aspects of life. Join us as we learn:
- How each month has its own energy, prayer, and offering.
- How there are three months for every direction, resulting in the four directions being four seasons.
- When seasons are respected and worked with they can help us develop into fully embodied strong people.
We will also learn to understand the relationship with food such as the sacred corn which is the main source of life to the Diné. The corn is part of their entire life, starting from in the belly of the mother. There are many corn ceremonies around the year and corn pollen is used as a spiritual offering.
Jerry will explore how the change of the seasons and its resulting weather can affect us mentally, spiritually, and emotionally and how we can harness these energies to develop and grow. This is sure to be a profound dive into how we can use the force of time and changing of weather to be the best versions of ourselves.
Don't miss it, this wisdom is not readily available or freely shared and we are deeply honored to have legendary roadman Jerry Nelson sharing this with us.
