Ancestral Remembrance, Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous Pedagogy
A Discussion with Kimmy Johnson
New Books Network 2022
In this episode we meet long time East-West Psychology faculty member, Kimmy Johnson, who describes her transformative journey starting as a student of Consciousness Studies and Traditional Knowledge at CIIS, to becoming an elder in the East-West Psychology community, teaching ancestral consciousness and healing, dreams as indigenous knowledge, and shamanic and earth-based traditions. Kimmy shares pedagogical approaches, and offers insights into how ancestral remembrance and traditional knowledges can help us examine what has been absorbed from our life experiences, our families and our culture, and offer earth-based and embodied strategies to question assumptions and make choices that empower us in all aspects of our lives.
Kimmy K. Johnson, Ph.D., teaches graduate courses and workshops in ancestral consciousness and healing, dreams as indigenous knowledge, and the shamanic traditions of our ancestors at the California Institute of Integral Studies and John F. Kennedy University as well as experiential learning, essay writing, and human development theory in the LEAP Program at St. Mary's College of California. She completed doctoral work in Consciousness Studies/Traditional Knowledge at the California Institute of Indigenous Studies. Her scholarship, writing and teaching explores healing modalities within familial, cultural and earth-based traditions.
