Mindful☼Mondays: Elder Wisdom

M I N D F U L ☼ M O N D A Y S

Many of us follow the wise guidance of our Elders. This tradition follows across nations, races, and lineages as a way to learn how to live a good life, be in balance, and do right by future generations.

Rooted Messages is a project that brings the voices and messages of Indigenous Elders from around the world – the question: “what does the world need to hear right now?” This specifically comes in the wake of COVID-19 and how it coincides with climate collapse.

Take some time to absorb a few of these messages today. Such as this one:

“The Earth, that was always placed first, now comes last.” – From Fadimata Walet Alassane, of the Tuareg people, Burkina Faso

What have your Elders taught you about how to be in right relationship with people and with the planet? Feel free to share in the comments.
