Offering Gratitude to Turtle Island and her Original Inhabitants 

with Eduardo Duran, hosted by Melissa Moore

Saturday, November 26, 9 AM PT/ 10 AM MT

Join Karuna Training for a post-colonial one-hour discussion on the true meaning of Thanksgiving with native elder Eduardo Duran. We will explore the act of restorative compassion by offering the land and the original peoples our acknowledgments and gratitude. 

Eduardo Duran, author of Red Face Buddha and Healing the Soul Wound, defines a post-colonial approach to healing for Indigenous people. Eduardo's work is profoundly contemplative and someone who honors Native and Buddhist ways, something that will benefit all who encounter his methods. 

The discussion will open to the importance of ceremonies of gratitude, land acknowledgments, and the power of making offerings.
