Hi I can't turn on video/sound now but, Heather MacTaggart from Toronto. The lake at my cottage (and all bodies of water) for peace and connection to everything.
@Deb - We do not even cut our lawn until the Monarch’s have migrated through each year. They are so inspiring!
My mic is not working - I am Lori and I live in Mt Shasta, CA (though I’m in the suburbs of LA right now). I love trees and flowers, especially sunflowers. Trees - Rooted, connected in community and flexible. Flowers represent color, beauty, and smell.
some cats love water…

My internet is unstable so you may lose me at some point.
Colonized thinking is the belief that there is one right way to look at things (generally whoever is in powers way)
That all students have to do the same things at the same time to get to the same outcome.
Imposition of will on the bodies and lives of others.The use of people, beings and places as fodder for people and cultures that don’t love or respect them.
socioeconomic hierarchy - the caste system
I am reading Braiding Sweetgrass which speaks to this as well.
name of that book?
Sand talk :)

Such an amazing story about paying attention. In colonized thinking the teacher points out what is important to pay attention to. At a young age children seek the guidance of a teacher to know what they should notice.
what is the order of learning things you're referring to again? Act, Connect, Listen, Respect?
A book that speaks about this is The Contiuum Concept
Dee Hoyano, Island Health MHO
Forgiveness from some indigenous perspectives seems to be different from colonizer perspective. What apologies mean, what reparations mean, what is acceptable for groups who are victims.
I'd like you to speak again and expand on the template of perfection
An incredible novel that discuss this in the form of a wonderful story is: Ishmael (and the follow up which is more education related, My Ishmael.) By Daniel Quinn. Amazingly good reads. Changed my life.
