Masterclass 8: Ilarion Merculieff: Becoming a Real Human Being

Ilarion Merculieff was raised in a traditional manner in the Pribiloff Islands of the Bering Sea, where his people have lived for 10,000 years. The Unangan people created the most densely populated linear mile of shoreline in the Americas, and plied the Atlantic Ocean from the furthest northern reaches of Alaska to the tip of South America in their single and double-hulled kayaks. Ilarion is a Kuuyux, an arm extending out from his tribe to the modern world. Only one person in his tribe carries this name. Growing up he had a traditional mentor, and was raised in the traditional ways of his people. He has spent the past five decades living the legacy of his name, bringing the teachings of his people and the Indigenous worldview to modern people. He is President of the Global Center for Indigenous Leadership and Lifeways. Indigenous people say that modern western civilization is the ‘upside-down society.’ Ilarion explains that the heart should be telling the mind what to do, but in modern western society, this has been inverted; now the mind tells the heart what to do. In this conversation, we will explore what it means to ‘become a real human being.’

Masterclass 9: Mary Watkins: Toward Mutual Accompaniment in the Healing Arts

Mary is chair of the Depth Psychology Program, Co-Chair of the Community, Liberation, Indigenous, and Eco- Psychologies Specialization (CLIE), and Coordinator of Community and Ecological Fieldwork and Research in CLIE at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Our source text here is likely to be her extraordinary Toward Psychologies of Liberation, yet we are presently reading her astonishing new Mutual Accompaniment and the Creation of the Commons. We will be exploring re-examing mental wellness approaches that don’t decontextualize suffering (remove it from the context of community, culture, and ecology) and pathways forward toward mutuality, and mutual accompaniment in the healing arts.
