Prophecies, Unprecedented Global Change and an Emerging Global Civilization
We are in the midst of global change unlike what most of us have every experienced. The theme of this timely workshop is global change that leads to a New Global Civilization.
Drawing on the best spiritual and prophetic sources from Indigenous Prophecies, the Ancient of Days, Call to the Nations, and the Universal House of Justice, Chief Phil Lane Jr. will share his vision for a New Global Civilization.
This is not a new world order but rather a manifestation of a new way of life leading to a New Global Civilization, now unfolding, based on the full spiritual recognition of the Oneness of the Human Family which has been promised by Spiritual Teachers and Faith Traditions everywhere on Mother Earth.
This new way of living and resulting relationships will become clearer in the days to come even as we will experience more unexpected and dynamic changes, than ever before!
Chief Phil will share the way of the spiritual warrior who practices each day on life’s journey to develop a full commitment to the unfettered and independent investigation of the truth for ourselves. This commitment allows each of us to view the world through our own eyes rather than the clouded cultural lens of others.
Participants will explore such topics as:
• The power of the “knowledge of knowledge that changes the way one feels, speaks and acts.
• The understanding of how living differently allows the wisdom of the knowledge of knowledge to wisely see that the world differently.
• The relationship of ancient indigenous prophesies such as the 2012 Mayan prophecies, The Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, the Eighth Council Fire, the Return of the White Buffalo, the Prophecies of Black Elk, Deganawidah, Quetzalcoatl, Sweet Medicine, Handsome Lake, the Hopi`s and more to the birth of the New Global Civilization.
• The wisdom of the oneness of the human family and how this understanding provides new insights for the equality of men and women, the balancing of the extremes of wealth and poverty, the elimination of prejudices, the unity of science and spirituality, universal education, and the Independent investigation of truth and unity in diversity.
The workshop will empower all through a New Global Civilization where the voices, wisdom, and vision of Indigenous Peoples are justly and respectfully represented and whose ancient wisdom is listened to and heeded.
Join us for a rare opportunity to learn collaborative with Chief Phil Lane Jr and each other at this workshop which seeks to expand the consciousness of all for a more inclusive vision of oneness.
This gathering will build our understanding and utilizing the Four Worlds guiding principles and development processes for healing ourselves, our communities and our relationship with Mother Earth. These Guiding Principles and development processes, for Building a Harmonious and Sustainable World, emerged from an extensive process of consultation with Indigenous spiritual, cultural and community leaders, spanning more than four decades.
The Four World’s model of human and community transformation is rooted in the concerns of hundreds of Indigenous Elders, Spiritual Leaders and Community Members, as well as in the best thinking of many non- Indigenous scholars, researchers and human and community development practitioners. Participants at this gathering will experience these principles via presentation and sharing circles and will learn how to use the Four World’s principles to affect personal, social, political, economic and cultural change. It is time to protect what we cherish and this gathering will present a way to achieve healing on multiple levels.
