Kogi Elder, Mamo Zeshina, invites us to unite for the healing of Mother Earth.
Highly attuned to nature, the Kogi, who inhabit the sacred mountains of the 'Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta' on the Caribbean coast of Colombia believe they exist to care for the world - a world they fear we are destroying.
The Kogi strongly revere "Aluna" or The Great Mother as their life force and see humanity as its children. They see themselves as the stewards of Mother Earth and believe the weakening condition of our planet is a direct result of exploitation actions from non-Indigenous people or the 'younger brothers' .The Kogi do not understand why their words go unheeded, why people do not understand that the earth is a living body and if we damage part of it, we damage the whole.
Mamo is on a mission to share the teachings of his culture to those who will listen, to keep us living in a good way. Join us for an evening of conversation with Mamo as we engage with ancestral Kogi teachings.
