Harmony and Balance through Peace and Democracy with Joanne Shenandoah

  • The Golden Drum 97 green st brooklyn United States (map)

The roots of Democracy were born in the origins of the Iroquois.  It was here where women enjoyed leadership roles and were responsible for the political, social and spiritual welfare of the people.

The story of the Peacemaker is prominent, as he made his way from village to village during a “dark time” of the Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse). It is one born out of a need for peace and harmony.   By accepting the “good mind” which is one of forgiveness, peace and power, everyone can find shelter under the great tree of peace and understand how to live in balance with one another and the natural world.

Now more than ever are these principles sought out all over the world.  This presentation will offer some guidance and tools to use in order to bringing balance and peace creating a safe place for one another and the seven generations to come.

Suggested donation: $25 - $45, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
