It is getting more common to speak of the “wisdom” of indigenous peoples, but not so common yet to look at the indigenousity within ourselves, and what it might look like to bring our “rags and bones” of half remembered knowledge back into the perennial discussion that human communities are meant to be having with the world of nature and the worlds of soul and spirit. Author and ritualist Randy Jones will share one of the ancient tales and some stories of modern rituals, drawing on his forthcoming book, Medicine Without an Expiry Date: Indigenous Healing in Modern Application.
Medicine Without an Expiry Date is a walk between two worlds, authored by one who received the name “Calls Forth Voices” from the Dreamtime, contributing an understanding and deep connection with the elemental knowledge of the indigenous into the personal, social and environmental domains of the modern.
