Description

Point of Departure offers a practical metacognitive and transformational learning strategy for human surviving and thriving. Using five foundational and interactive Indigenous worldview beliefs that contrast sharply with our dominant worldview ones, everyone can reclaim the original instructions for living on Earth. Without the resulting change in consciousness that can emerge from this learning approach, no modern technologies can save us. The five foundational Indigenous precepts relate to a radically different understanding about: (1) Trance?based learning (2) Courage and Fearlessness (3) Community Oriented Self?Authorship (4) Sacred Communications (5) Nature as Ultimate Teacher.

Review quote

Four Arrows provides a quintessential critique of how the collective human departure of modern society from "Indigenous Consciousness" has led to the current wholesale exploitation and destruction of "Indigenous Nature" . . . while providing the impetus for the urgency of a return to the "Indigenous Mind" as one of the true pathways for our future survival - Greg Cajete, Director of Native American Studies, University of New Mexico, Author of Native Science and Look to the Mountain.
