A Recall of Celebration

The past generations, our ancestors had a knowledge of nature that celebrated its spiritual living reality. A sense of non-separation from nature existed that was rooted in the identity of the community. As we evolved into a higher individuated self, we also have separated ourselves from nature and its anthropomorphic invisible and spiritual reality.
What is the meaning of liveness in nature? How can we together rediscover and activate the living reality and spiritual existence of nature?
Rituals still very present in indigenous nations around the world have allowed me to recreate a bridge to nourish and honor the invisible existence we are surrounded by.
Let’s explore together how to celebrate and reactivate our awareness of our spiritual environment and re-create bridges to the invisible that was once honored and nourished. Through rituals, as we nourish the invisible liveness and acknowledge its presence, it acknowledges us and creates a resonance of awareness that slowly incarnates itself in our living reality.
Francois will begin by setting context before inviting participants to share in ritual and singing. It will be followed by dialogue reflecting on the transformation of the We through the ritual process.
Francois Demange is a well-known and highly regarded practitioner in the field of Amazonian plant spirit medicine and Native American Traditions. As a Reiki Master and healer he helps people connect to Spirit and the invisible power of Nature. His journey began in 1996 in the Peruvian Amazon after having searched many years for a connection with nature and its invisible reality. He was introduced to plant medicine in Takiwasi Center in Tarapoto, Peru and then followed different indigenous traditions from the Amazon, the Andes, and the Native American plains, which inform his practice today. In 2002 after having worked for local development agencies supporting local communities, he joined his field experiences with the academic world by earning a master’s degree in Social Science at the University of East London.
Today he dedicates himself in bridging these shamanic traditions to modern contemporary culture – creating a distinctive approach to self and collective awakening.
