TORRINGTON — For the Next 7 Generations documents the momentous journey of 13 indigenous grandmothers, as they travel around the globe to promote world peace and share their indigenous ways of healing. Originating from all four corners, these 13 wise women elders, shamans and medicine women, first came together in 2004 at a historic gathering in Upstate New York.
Motivated by their concern for our planet, they decided to form an alliance: The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. The film begins at their first gathering follows them to the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico, throughout North America, and to Dharamsala, India, for a private meeting with the Dalai Lama. Facing a world in crisis, the grandmothers share with us their visions of healing and a call for change now, before it’s too late. Through their teachings, they are lighting a way to a peaceful, sustainable planet.
A screening of the film, hosted by The Conscious Evolution group, will be held June 10 at 7 p.m. at Unity in the Foothills, 102 Prospect St. in Torrington.
The group meets monthly at area locations to view and discuss documentaries focused on the subject of Consciousness and how Consciousness evolves in individuals and society as a whole. Everyone is welcome to attend and join the discussion.
