This Month at Samsara House 2023 - December 2015

22-29 DECEMBER 2015, Wounded Knee, SD and World Wide
Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee, Local and Global Ceremonies

The Beginning of the End of Violence, Racism and Genocide by
Healing Humanity's Collective Trauma at its Roots
(find out how to list your own local ceremony)
Indigenous peoples all over the world are starting to heal from the deepest essential and millennial wounds of humanity created by colonization and lack of reconciliation. Arising from inspiration from Indigenous peoples, we propose to unite all peoples, all communities, and all nations in a series of World Wide Global Ceremonies: Ceremonies to heal massacre, heal holocaust, heal racism, heal the deepest, most heartfelt, soul wrenching wounds of humanity throughout time.   
We need to bring our wounds out of denial and work together to heal them hand in hand, heart to heart, invoking the sacred to be with us as we walk down this deeply compassionate reverential road together.

For the past 25 years, Native American people have been riding, running and walking the route that Chief Bigfoot followed with his people, before they were massacred at the site of Wounded Knee in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. This year, to honor the 25th anniversary of the Chief Big Foot Band Memorial Ride and the 125th anniversary of the massacre, we inaugurate a 4 year cycle for global ceremony to end massacre and all that massacre means and to finally heal our hearts.

Wounded Knee becomes a focal point for healing ceremonies and activities to heal the multi-lineal, multi-generational wounds of humanity. Through ceremony and other healing modalities, we are engendering the healing process for indigenous and non-indigenous communities worldwide; by recognizing the core wounds of humanity, participating in ceremonies and activities of healing, and creating opportunities for everyone to heal…

25 Year Chief Big Foot Band Reunion Ride

We will be honoring the first 19 Chief Big Foot Band Memorial riders, who first made the trek on horseback to honor our ancestors.  Starting in 1986-1990 they retraced the 7 day journey made by Big Foot’s people in 1890. Then in 1990 for the 100 Year Memorial of the massacre, these original riders were joined by walkers, runners, and hundreds more. The Walkers and Runners who journeyed in 1990 will also be honored. This pilgrimage to Wounded Knee has been repeated annually for the last 24 years. We invite riders, walkers, runners, and support volunteers to join with us on this year’s historic journey.

This year is historic.  

We are hosting the 25th Bigfoot Band Memorial Ride. We expect hundreds of riders, walkers, runners, media and volunteer support staff. This will include a diverse group of people of all ages and from all over the world.  For more information on how you can volunteer and support the ride,

About Samsara House 2023, (est. 2013)

"Samsara House 2023" at 36 R Street NW is an Awareness-based shared event space where world-shifting communities are meshworked to expand each other's world view and experience and cross-pollinate that which is emerging in the world.  Samsara House 2023 rapidly prototypes models for the new world to template upon and ignite a planetary revolution in consciousness within ten years.

Samsara House 2023’s strategy is to exemplify a gift-economy over the market economy, one that values giving over having. While all events cost at least one dollar to cover utilities, any additional contribution will go towards periodically giving half back to a socially responsible organization or cause in need that you also help identify. Going together as a river, we build a thriving community of communities and pave the way for a new world. Samsara House 2023 is a Holacracy powered organization founded by Cullen Kowalski at a row house in Bloomingdale, New Washington, D.C.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.  To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. ~ Buckminster Fuller

Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Gandhi
