The Delicate Lodge Teachings are deeply rooted in the ancient native cultures of the Americas. According to its mythology, this lineage has been evolving for 35,000 years. It flourished among the Mayans and Toltecs and those who walked before them. Later it lived in cultures like Chaco Canyon and the Mound Builders of the Mississippi.
This ancient wisdom contains deep understanding of how humans function - spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally - including powerful practices for healing old patterns that prevent right relationship. Through working with this "bundle" of knowledge and tools, we can access the deep joy of living a full and balanced life.
The information in the bundle taught in the CGT is held in a series of over 25 Medicine Wheels and a number of concepts which help people to remember, incorporate and pass it on.
Tried and tested over literally thousands of years in the lab of human interaction throughout the world, the impact and influence of the Teachings is widespread - now reflected in many contemporary approaches to creating what is wanted in personal, organizational and community life.
Vital for our fulfilment is also the quality of our relationships with intimate partner, family, community and all our relations. The Delicate Lodge Teachings evolved in tribes which celebrated individuality within togetherness, so its tools enable us to honour each other's self-authority while promoting peace and harmony. It is a circular way of self-organising, not a hierarchical one, and leads to vitality. These tools are needed in our world today.
"Throughout the river of time in the journey of human consciousness, there has been a dream of sacredness and wholeness of life as a beautiful mystery that has emerged many times in many different forms.
Characteristically, this consciousness has emerged when the people have lived in close conscious relationship with the earth and with one another."
