The Road Ahead & The Indigenous Heart

July 5-8, 2018
Burnlaw Center, Hexham, Northumbria, UK


Our ancestors understood well how to access the wisdom inscribed in the landscape through the fire of living by those who came before. Across time and generations it has consistently been though the power of community and ritual in concert with music and voice that gave rise to the wisdom embedded in the stones, rivers, trees, glens and mountains of this land. 

There is an old Celtic proverb that speaks to the relationships rooted strongly in our psyche; and in the memories of the landscape itself… rooted to those who have come before us… our grandmothers and grandfathers, inviting us to draw upon the knowledge that we are born from the love of thousands that seek to guide us into becoming ancestors ourselves that our great grandchildren will be proud of.

“What is broken in this world can only be healed from the other world and what is broken in the other world can only be healed from this world.” Celtic Proverb

“From an indigenous perspective, the individual psyche can be healed only by addressing one’s relationship with the visible worlds of nature and community and one’s relationship with the invisible forces of the ancestors and spirit allies.
It is in ritual that nature, community, and the spirit world come together to support the inner building of identity.” — Malidoma Some`. African Shaman & Elder
