PURE DEMOCRACY: Peacemaking using an Indigenous Change Process  Occupy Seattle, February 15, 2012

Patricia Anne Davis, MA

1. Problem Identification: naming the out-of-balance condition.
Assumption of superiority – Trans-generational disconnect – Misuse of power – Inequity – GREED and fear of lose – FEAR of survival – Asleep to creative gifts.

Core Issue:  the root cause that maintains the out-of-balance condition.
Conquest mentality; Historical documents instituted into infrastructure designed to benefit Colonialists Invaders ; Vatican’s Charter of Liberty defining ownership of land and property, including women; Vatican’s Charter of the Forrest: “Right of Discovery of Pagan Land” – Discovery Doctrine; Papal Bull, regarding American Indian Genocide and the Willie Lynch Letter regarding deconstructing Black people through Slavery.

2. Obstacles: emptying is correcting the obstacles to internal change that maintain the root cause of destructive and death producing choices.
“I am” my deficient self-image which is self-delusion; emptying self-doubt; Irish “keening” is public grieving of death; symbolic “death” of self-image; cleansing and purifying obstacles that are painful.

3. Realistic Ideal: reframing win-lose=no-win decisions into win-win decisions for constructive and life-affirming choices.  Affirming powerwithin to have powerwith others eliminates the need for powerover.
Win-win decisions for collective survival; remembering that there is a Unity and we are within the Oneness of creation.

4. Co-creative Resolution: manifesting the win-win co-creative solutions.
Design safe and supportive places for emptying without judgment, condemnation or punishment.  Design places to affirm our creative imagination and to our gifts.
Design Process: [powerwithin]

  • Envision – visualize: seeing
  • Conceptualize – intention: thinking
  • Dialogue – affirmation: speaking

5. Life Application: co-creative situational leadership for decision making and    designing the co-creative solutions.
Comradeship and solidarity: Alignment with the authority of our authentic-SELF.
Manifest Process: [to have powerwith others, eliminates the need for powerover]

  • Construct – manifest: doing
  • Life Skill – living co-creative solution(s)

About Patricia Anne Davis, MA Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh

My English name is Patricia Anne Davis, MA and my ceremonial name is used only for personal ceremony. It translates to "peacemaker" or "one who greets others with peace". I have spent a life time learning and practicing healing knowledge and processes, beginning with my own father, who was a medicine person who made his lifetime priority healing three generations of people in ceremonies. He was my teacher from birth in the home and in ceremonies until his transition in 1983. I earned a BA in Psychology from the University of AZ and an MA in Whole System Design, the language and techniques of creative change, from the Center for Creative Change at the Antioch University in Seattle, WA. I worked in the Health and Human Services profession in every position in the continuum of care for Behavioral Health, Social Services and Mental Health for over 20 years. I am an original writer of "The Beauty Way Curriculum" K-12 Prevention Education for alcohol and other drug recovery and wellness restoration in both the English and Navajo language, published in 1990. Currently, I am in private practice as a Practitioner and Diagnostician and also an International Teacher and Consultant of Navajo/Dineh blessingway ceremonial healing principles that are cross-cultural, inter-generational, inclusive and universal in practical application.

  1. The above addition is just meant as a side note after the fact and not necessarily need to be added on to what was already recorded at that moment of the Pure Democracy gathering….
