Keynote Topics

“The Sacredness of Twoness” | Lyla June Johnston

Festival of Faiths

From the session: ONE, NOT TWO: SACRED WHOLENESS | 2018 Festival of Faiths Lyla June Johnston is an artist, human ecologist, public speaker, and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne), and European lineages. Her multi-genre performance style has invigorated and inspired audiences across the globe towards healing.

Her messages focus on Indigenous rights, supporting youth, inter-cultural healing, historical trauma, and traditional land stewardship practices. 

“From ancient times our faith traditions teach us that everything is inextricably united as a sacred whole. This eternal and perennial wisdom is hard to grasp by the human mind, which tends to see the world dualistically: right/wrong, male/female, sacred/profane.

The contemplative, non-dual mind, however, can restore our understanding of the interdependence of all things. It holds paradox, and it is unitive. This session will explore how unifying, and balancing the complementary feminine and masculine aspects of Divine Wisdom is essential to our approaching wholeness, and the non-dual mind.”

This talk was delivered at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. Introduction by Nina Simons, Bioneers Co-Founder and Relationship Strategist.

Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges.

Asdzáán Nádlééhé (Changing Woman) is one of the main deities and guides of the Diné (Navajo) people. Lyla June gives her take on how she would view “education” and how this can inform the modern endeavor of raising the next generation.

Her internationally acclaimed live performances are conveyed through the medium of speech, hip-hop, poetry, and acoustic music. Her personal goal is to grow closer to Creator by learning how to love deeper.
