Lie van Schelven.jpg

Lie van Schelven - The question of what inspires Life and keeps it vital has traveled with me all my life. What does it take to carry Life through in endless cycles of ever-increasing consciousness? It took me to the hard sciences (neurosciences), to the soft sciences (philosophy and ancient life sciences), to countless journeys in the outer world and in my silent inner world, in search of Indigenous Consciousness, a holistic consciousness based on caring: caring for the land, caring for the community, caring for the sacred and magical. Where are you at home, who are you connected to and what breathes Life into us. Indigenous Consciousness changes our view of the world and what we do in it. Or don't. They are the questions of integrity and truthfulness.
