Lyla June – Nihimá Nahasdzáán: Healing Women and Nature Through a Diné (Navajo) Lens

Lyla June — poet, musician, anthropologist, educator, public speaker and community organizer of Diné, Cheyenne and European lineages — has inspired audiences around the world with a message of personal, collective and ecological healing. Drawing from her studies in Human Ecology and the traditional ancestral Diné worldview with which she grew up, she’s exploring the links between environmental destruction and “rape culture” and how we can heal and transform ourselves and our society. Lyla delves into how the healing of women can unleash the healing of men and how we have to heal humanity to heal the Earth. She shares paradigm-shifting techniques from the heart of the hogan that help mend the broken heart of the Western world.
