Discussion

My life purpose, or life myth in Processwork terms, and has enabled me to observe and get in the stream of my process. Questions open up potent ways we can inquire into our paths and are fertile arenas for culture shifts, especially when they are connected to our deep feeling senses, and exploring them through indigenous ways of knowing such as listening to nature elements, dreams, walking, conversation, storytelling, visioning, etc. returns me to my body and spirit as a potent knower, and to the Earth and ancestral spirits. 

This way of knowing is in contrast to early experiences of colonial/Western education that abstracted me away from myself and from Earth and ancestral spirits in favour of “objective” and book knowing.

In this presentation, I will speak about indigenous ways of knowing, as I have experienced them, and in pairs we will apply some of them in an exercise in which we illuminate more about our lifepaths through potent questions.

Features

This Recorded Seminar Includes

Wangũi wa Kamonji is a Regeneration Practitioner

Her work is motivated by the question of how to heal the colonial traumas of past and present, and (re)create new-old regenerative realities for the present and future of the Afrikan continent. She explores this through research using academic and indigenous methods, storytelling in written and oral forms, traditional Afrikan dance and movement practice, and facilitating spaces for critical consciousness and decolonial transformations in partnership with human, earth and unembodied spirit relations.

About Your Teacher

Meet Wangũi wa Kamonji

Regenerative Practitioner

My name is Wangũi wa Kamonji. I am called to be a retriever and bearer of indigenous Afrikan lifeways and knowledge. I use academic research, dance, writing, performance, song, travel, ancestral work and process facilitation to create and curate awakening spaces that are transformative passageways to new life on this continent in partnership with human, earth and unembodied spirit relations. My work centres Africa, the Earth and ancestrality. She convenes the collective Afrika Hai to research, reconnect to, and reimagine indigenous Afrikan knowledge for regeneration. Some of my previous work has appeared on Transition Network, The Elephant and the short story collection ‘Story Story, Story Come’.
