Four Arrows, professor at Fielding Graduate University

Fielding Graduate University professor Four Arrows will discuss the importance of dehypnotizing worldview reflection and the use of the CAT-FAWN mnemonic for transformational learning that seeks complementary and/or re-balancing beliefs about humans, nature and spirit that come from a non-binary reflection on dominant and Indigenous worldviews.
