The Cycle of the Way of Life

Broadcast on May 12, 2023
With Darryl Slim
Hosted by Joe Tafur, MD

According to Darryl Slim, traditional Diné medicine utilizes a life cycle that helps relatives understand the meaning and purpose behind each stage of life. Each rite of passage provides deeper understanding into healing personal and collective trauma.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The Cycle of the Way of Life helps you understand your own growth
  • Healing takes place through being present to the moment
  • Unwellness happens when looking back to the past or forward to the future
