Listening Ground presents a special New Mexico engagement with Dr. Greg Valerio, founder of a Celtic Monastic community on the South Downs of England near the mythic Neolithic Chanctonbury Ring. Dr. Valerio will join Pueblo Elder/Master Storyteller, Larry Littlebird in a timely spoken word CONVERSATION: Walking Backward into the Future.  Exchanging stories rooted in the ancient wisdom traditions of the indigenous Celtic people and tribal American Indians they illuminate historical layers of settler colonialism, racial injustice and climate disruption. Set apart by land, water and time, they offer a fresh look into our human connections, one to another and to God as Origin. Embarking on this migratory journey of healing and forgiveness, they ask us to join them in charting a way toward peace, justice and reconciliation.

Walking Backward into the Future is presented by Listening Ground in collaboration with the Society of St. Columba.  This special Albuquerque event kicks off the “East Coast Pilgrimage” in June 2019.
