Ben Boomer experienced his childhood as a Dine hybrid on the Navajo reservation participating in both traditional Dine ceremony with his mother’s family and traveling to California for Christmas with his father’s side of the family. In 2006 he was introduced to both the Shipibo and Huichol paths of knowledge, and felt an immediate connection. A deep recognition of the validity and importance of the ancient ways of knowing drives him to further bridge the gap between the modern western society and indigenous civilizations. He has over 20 years of experience integrating technology into the world. From digital publishing and design, to wireless mesh communications and traffic guidance he has bridged the gap from technological vision to reality. His role as Board President of CSEE brings a level of integrity and insight in to both sides of the Shamanic exchange with his lifelong experience in Shamanic culture, and an adult life of understanding the technology and knowledge of western culture.
