LYLA JUNE on Resistance and Forgiveness in the Final Years of Patriarchy /43 For The Wild

    • Philosophy

Lyla June retraces the origins of oppression of European women, men and earth-based cultures through to recent histories of genocide, inter-generational trauma, and the enduring forces that seek to destroy Indigenous women and the earth. Industrial activities that impact the lands and humans at local levels reverberate at an energetic level that has bred today’s crises of environmental and spiritual disease. Lyla argues that by facing this dark history and exposing the backward logic of a “sophisticated” death culture, a way forward emerges. In resistance, Lyla and Ayana honor the power of women as constant life-givers who “lead with their hearts”, and the potential to heal the deep fractures in our society through renewing acts of forgiveness and love that affirm our togetherness as a global family.
