11-14 August 2021

The current local & global situation (global warming, pandemic, pollution, biodiversity loss, famine, etc.) shows many of the consequences of the negative impact that humanity has had on Nature.

According to the United Nations (2020), more than 1 million species face imminent extinction, including humans. 80% of biodiversity is found in only 20% of the planet and it is not fortuitous that this territory has been historically protected by indigenous communities.

Indigenous worldviews recognize that we are interconnected and must learn to live with respect and harmony among all beings on the planet to ensure a balanced and prosperous future. One Sanctuary and Voice For Nature have partnered to present the ReWild Series. A unique platform to elevate & celebrate ancestral indigenous knowledge through thoughtful conversations between indigenous elders and academics, thought leaders, activists and audiences across the Americas interested in reconnecting with our original Indigenous Worldview for a balanced future. ONE Foundation carries out prior consultations with local ethnic community authorities, to validate participation and access to information about the projects, content generation and activities intended to be carried out in their territory.

HOW DOES RECONNECTING WITH OUR ORIGINAL INDIGENOUS WORLDVIEW CHANGE THE FUTURE?

Join us in this space of deep personal transformation through reflections upon the Indigenous Worldview as taught through generations by our Elder Brothers & Sisters.

Connect with this sacred knowledge through intimate conversations, workshops, rituals and close encounters with local Kogi Indigenous Communities and invited scholar Four Arrows.

During the retreat, we will venture to reflect on:

  • Why is crucial to our survival to reconnect with the Indigenous Worldview?
  • How does the original Indigenous Worldview differ from the one that predominates in most cultures today?

Plus, we´ll take the reflection to practice through workshops and exercises under the CAT-FAWN methodology designed & guided by Four Arrows:

  • The search for consciousness and the mastery of it.
  • Learning based on trance or hypnosis.
  • The appropriate use of ceremony and ritual as crucial aspects of balancing body, mind and spirit.
  • Understanding how to move from fear to courage to fearless trust in the universe, based on Indigenous Worldviews.
  • The power of words in creating our beliefs and actions.
  • How traditional Indigenous cultures can teach us how to re-embrace the only way to re-balance the life systems on Earth.

PURPOSE

Propitiate a meeting point that triggers unique connections between local community initiatives and global citizens interested in the search to return to a world in balance from the Indigenous cosmovision. The original worldview that allows regeneration, awareness, visibility and strengthening of individual and collective processes in favor of our existence and a planet in balance.

ORGANIZED BY - FUNDACIÓN ONE SANTUARIO NATURAL

Is an organization that supports the social, environmental and cultural development of the indigenous communities and inhabitants of the region of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. We believe in the value of sowing knowledge in our communities through the connection between artists, managers and cultural leaders with the community of the Sierra, in order to expand the frontiers of knowledge that result in new realities for the cultural, social, environmental and economic development of the region. ONE is to leave seed.

PARTNER - VOICE FOR NATURE

We believe that Nature needs a new narrative that sparks curiosity, inspires new thinking, and informs audiences about living in harmony with Nature. Changing our relationship with Nature requires changing our frame of reference. We’ll use awe-inspiring stories to shift people’s perception of Nature from a fear-based problem to solve or ignore, to that of partnership and a constant source of inspiration.

  • 12:30 PM First Presentation: Introduction: Our Plight, CAT-FAWN and the Idea of Two Worldviews “After a brief introduction to the meta-cognitive tool, CAT-FAWN, we will talk about the importance of “worldview.” Although a European word, philosophers and educators have come to define in ways that allow for worldview reflection at much deeper levels that allow for the “beingness” represented in the Indigenous way of understanding the foundation of all our beliefs and actions. If it is such a foundation, why do we not spend more time on it? Our conversation will be about how cultures, religions, philosophies, etc. tend to group themselves under only two worldviews, the Indigenous and the Dominant. Although the contrast presents a duality, we will show how using the non-binary Indigenous worldview to discuss worldviews actually is a complementary exercise.”
