    Chief Langley Lectures on Beyond the realm of Death, Dreams and your Ancestors

    in Education

    It is always possible for deceased loved ones to visit us in our dreams.  It’s actually an ideal place for them to make contact.  For one, you are in a relaxed state so it’s easier for them to get your attention.  For another, you are disconnected from the physical and more connected to your subconscious and/or superconscious if you are a lucid dreamer.  And lastly, dreams are sort of the mid-ground between here and there so it’s like meeting in the middle.

    Chief Langley Lectures on Indian Slavery, Colonialism and Colonial Slave Trade

    in Education

    Slavery had virtually disappeared in Western Europe by the 1500s and it looked to be dying where it existed. Only Spain and Portugal still practiced slavery and in a turn of irony, these were the two countries that led the colonizing effort in the Americas, almost ensuring that slavery would be transported from Europe to the New World.
