Throughout human story, the village has long been a central space where women and children gather; where arts and culture collide; and where civilization thrives. Although our modern technology will continue to advance, our innate biology that requires real time, human connection will remain. In the face of all of our current social programming, which promotes fear and separation at the expense of community and kinship, it is essential that we relate deeply with ourselves, others & our planet as well as feel held and supported by a group of people that the village space so often offers us.
For the people of Mesoamerica, Quetzalcoatl – aka the feathered serpent – was a divine symbol representing both the crossroad where earth and sky collide as well as the city-center space where diverse people and their cultures met, commingled and evolved.
Since 2012, Quetzalcoatl has been dancing in our collective consciousness daring us to remember and dream these vibrant community spaces back to life once more.
