About This Talk

The Children's Fire is a part of the Earth Wisdom teachings of the elders of the native Americans. Over time, the elders came to understand that all human-created institutions needed to reflect the balance and wisdom observed in nature. The Children's Fire was a reminder of the promise: “No law, no action of any kind, shall be taken that will harm the children.” It is now time to re-kindle this fire: in our corporations, governments, religion and education.
