An Indigenous Vision for Our Collective Future: Becoming Earth’s Stewards Again (nonprofitquarterly.org)

Anthropologists have called Indigenous peoples the “original ecologists.” 19 Indigenous peoples were able to sustain their traditional subsistence economy for millennia because “they possessed appropriate ecological knowledge and suitable methods to exploit resources, but possessed a philosophy and environmental ethic to keep exploitive abilities in check, and established ground rules for relationships between humans and animals.” 20 Native peoples’ reciprocity with the natural and spiritual...

When are under chronic stress and our stress response system is constantly activated, what is a symptom of stress, becomes a trait or characteristic in which we (or how we may judge others) are viewed.

Kilo is the Native Hawaiian art of observation. Through Kilo , we become part of our environment by watching, observing, examining and even forecasting. Children learn best through play. During the developmental stage of a preschool keiki (child), it is important that a child has opportunities to interact with his/her environment. This is when a keiki is beginning the process of scaffolding information to make sense of the world and learn new things. Kilo can be natural for a keiki at this...

Mindfulness Minute Series (6 of 6)

Daniel Goya ·
Each exercise shared in this series addressed a certain age group of a child but can help adults restore and maintain calm as well. I highly encourage you to review each of the segments in this six-part series and see what works for you in various stressful situations. The “4-7-8 breathing exercise” (part 1) is an effective strategy when I am on a plane or before I speak before an audience. The “growing like a tree” (part 3) activity helps when I first wake in the morning as I step out of...
