Animism and Healing

February 7

A Community Healers’ Council Lecture
by Sarah Kerr, PhD

“The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.”
~Audre Lorde

“Problems cannot be solved with the same mind-set that created them.”
~Albert Einstien

Our world is in need of healing. The Calgary Community Healers’ Council aims to stretch beyond the structures of western mind, to explore some of the new (old) mindsets and tools that will help bring that healing about.

As an alternative to the western worldview, animism values relationships, honours the unseen, and recognizes everything as alive, intelligent, and engaged. An animist perspective offers a path for returning to right relationship with our world, and the beings with whom we share it.

This lecture explores the significance of our worldviews, and offers support and resources for those called to support conscious evolution.

  • How does the lens we see the world through impact how we approach healing and transformation?
  • What does it mean to be a healer when the land, the spirits, the ancestors, and the future beings are all part of our community?
  • How does an animist perspective change who we are, as people, and as a healers?
  • What does healing from an animist perspective look and feel like?
  • What’s the relationship between animism and shamanism? (Hint: If you’re interested in shamanism, you need to understand animism.)

Join us for an evening of thought-provoking ideas and conversation!
