Red Table Wisdom Talks
Welcome to your seat at the Red Table. It is our pleasure to sit with you and engage in many deep conversations together.
The Red Table Talks are weekly conversations between Elder Diane Longboat and people world wide who are looking to participate in exchanges that lift the spirit.
In a partnership with Cathy Mines, the Director of Wellness at Reach Yoga who sits in as host and call moderator for Diane. It is in this partnership that Cathy and the Reach Yoga community provide this space and platform solely for the purpose of making Indigenous teachings available in the spirit of reconciliation.

A Message to America from Brazil’s first Indigenous Congress Woman .
Soul of the Mother is committed to healing Mother Earth through the spiritual evolution of humanity.
As a living organization that is profoundly committed to integrity, authenticity, and the transformative power of ceremony, we know that the connection to Spirit is the key to the manifestation of our spiritual mandate.
The Soul of the Mother vision embodies;
a space for the preservation of Indigenous wisdom and healing traditions
increased opportunities for local and global peace-building alliances through sharing Indigenous knowledge systems
human connection with the Earth for the purpose of environmental protection and the restoration of ecological balance.
All of this work is underway to contribute to Life for all of our children, for all future generations, and for all Life Beings in creation – they are at the center of our vision and the driving force that is our purpose.
We are aware that we cannot fully manifest this vision without the sustained commitment of a Circle of Friends who share a deep and abiding belief in this work.
