Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 3: Indigenous Religions—The Earth Speaks

In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program

Indigenous religions are close to the sources of life and permeate the lives of followers; their stories give meaning to everything adherents see, touch, and do in their daily lives, and their rituals have sacred significance as well as practical value.

Ready yourself to talk about faiths that originate from the earth by getting in touch with the earth. Go outside, if weather permits. Quietly watch the movement of a tree or a bird. Breathe the scent of a plant. Allow the sensations to flow all the way into you and through you. Feel them become part of you and fill you with a sense of belonging to this sacred giver of life, our earth.
