You are here.  The Center of Ancient Civilization.  Founded between the 13th and 11th centuries BC, it was called Lygos, Byzantium, Constantinople and now Istanbul.  The bridge over the Bosphorus within the city itself links two continents, Europe and Asia.

The skyline today tells a story of grand architectures, both ancient and contemporary.  Istanbul truly is at the crossroads of civilization.

That's Exactly Where We Find Ourselves the Crossroads of Our Civilization.

The idea of Wisdom Council was seeded in a South Dakota tipi.  As our group sat in circle, we discussed issues in our camp.  We made decisions about what we would do that day.  Who was going to get wood.  Who was going to build the fires for sweatlodge.  As I looked around the circle, I realized this is how it had been done by aboriginal people for centuries. 

Sitting in circle.  No lead.  Each person contributing their unique talent to help the tribe do more than just survive.  They thrived!

In that moment, I knew I had to bring that tradition into our contemporary way of being. 

Wisdom Council was born.
