Listening Session With the Arhuaco Mamos @ the Serpentine Gallery

Video with Flourishing Diversity on Friday 25th October 2019

This is a highlight of a listening session from our friends at Flourishing Diversity with the Arhuaco Mamos

The Mamos are spiritual leaders from the Arhuaco nation of Colombia’s Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. In this session they shared aspects of their ancient cosmology, addressing ecology and balance in the face of the existential threats facing the world today.

Indigenous people understand water as a sacred element and have sophisticated ways of working with it. Having been asked to bring water from their homes, the Mamos guided the audience through a process to cleanse and energise the molecular structure of this water, inviting them to continue the process by sharing this water with the rivers, springs and streams in their area.

Flourishing Diversity #

At the heart of Flourishing Diversity is the understanding that life on earth is possible because of biological and cultural diversity, where each part is equally vital to the whole. Every species, every behaviour, every tradition and every relationship contributes to the continuous emergence of the diversity of life. This intricate interplay animates and assures the ecosystems upon which all life depends.
