E97 – Erin Dixon on Truth and Reconciliation, Living Systems and Reciprocity // Beyond the edge we soar together

main - The Future Is Beautiful.Erin Dixon

“When we talked about the pathways of change and beauty that are happening, I feel like it comes when people are doing the work they came to do. Their waters, their pathways start to shimmer, that light starts to shimmer. A wellspring of beauty, in the sense of really listening to their gifts, listening to why they are here and taking action and movement from that place.” – Erin Dixon

About this interview:


Are wellsprings of beauty our living systems for change?

“When we talked about the pathways of change and beauty that are happening, I feel like it comes when people are doing the work they came to do. Their waters, their pathways start to shimmer, that light starts to shimmer. A wellspring of beauty, in the sense of really listening to their gifts, listening to why they are here and taking action and movement from that place.”

In this episode Amisha speaks with Erin Dixon, Ashati Sakahikan.

She is lead faculty at the Banff Centre for Arts in the Wise Practices for Indigenous Leaders and Truth and Reconciliation Right Relations offerings. She is co-chair of the advisory board and facilitator for Feather Carriers Leadership for Life Promotion, and is on the board of directors for the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.

Guided with vision and all life in mind, Erin walks in pathways of wisdom grounded in action. She interweaves different worlds and spheres of relating in a commitment to living prophecies in the spirit of sacred reciprocity and right relationship, supporting spaces of deep change throughout our waterways.

Amisha and Erin speak of truth and reconciliation in light of the cultural genocide and impacts of intergenerational trauma on the wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island. They explore the power of the land, ceremonial gifts of culture, song and drumming as pathways of beauty that carry stories for healing trauma and for lifting collective spirit. Their conversation connects us to ideas of living systems as well springs for change fuelled by joy, intuition, sacred reciprocity and the magical shimmers of our waterways.

“We always do our work with elders, and that for us is a really powerful way to ground, the depth and the experience.” – Erin Dixon
