Accept an invitation to tune your instinctive self to your body, resuscitating our deep connections to each other.

Over the space of the Campfire Convention, you'll come to understand how we've become separated from nature - both inner and outer. We'll draw on the wisdom of indigenous tribal people with Danny Schmulevitch, who has worked with over a lifetime exploring the capacity we all have to feel and connect.

This is an invitation for you to explore a space where you can experience your true reservoir of power that is your birth right. You will be guided through practices that enable us to reconnect with our instinctive self, so that you can come away with a new insight of well being. You will have time for reflection followed by a short walk to complete your pilgrimage and a group sharing in the Yurt.

 

Introduction by the Fire (Wednesday night) "The Voice of the Kalahari People and what it represents for us"

An introductory talk by the Fire with Danny Schmulevitch to the wisdom of the Kalahari People, and how we can apply it in our daily lives. This is also an invitation to tune your instinctive self to your body, resuscitating our deep connections to each other, exploring our roots and the knowledge of Kalahari people and how it applies to our daily lives so we can be better at feeling. 

The few indigenous tribes that remain in the world today have not lost this powerful way of connecting, and that’s why they’re so important to us now. What can we learn from them before it’s too late? How might our separation from nature – both inner and outer - be connected with the challenges we face? And how can we resuscitate a way of feeling and connecting with the world that's so vital to to our health and wellbeing, our sense of purpose and belonging, our families and relationships, and our planet?

Danny Shmulevitch grew up sleeping under the stars with the semi-nomadic communities of the Sinai desert. For two decades, he led journeys that were attended by ecological and spiritual leaders who came to witness the expansion that occurs when we dissolve our separation from nature.

It was while hunting with the Kalahari bushmen in Africa that Danny experienced the dramatic difference in the way they instinctively sense and tune into their surroundings. This insight led him to spend his life exploring the human capacity to feel and connect in ways many of us have lost touch with.

 

The Pilgrimage "Exploring our roots" (Thurs - Sat)

There’s no question we’re living through challenging times. From loneliness and mental health to social cohesion and the unsustainable human activities that are pushing our planet to the edge - many of the problems humanity faces today make sense in the context of where we have come from and how much we’ve changed.

It’s easy to forget that our species spent 95% of its existence living as hunter gatherers, deeply connected with the natural world and each other in order to survive. It was only during the last 5% of our evolution – some 10,000 years ago - when the discovery of agriculture transformed our way of life. This change began our separation from nature, both inside and out.  

Today, we look out from our buildings and up from our phones and see ourselves as separate, both from the natural world and each other. We’ve become conditioned to live in our heads, focussed on science and technology and driven by rational thinking. As a result, we’re less connected with our bodies and natural instincts and more shut off from nature than ever before.

On the day

Over the space of the Campfire Convention, you'll come to understand how we've become separated from nature - both inner and outer.  We'll draw on the wisdom of indigenous tribal people with Danny Schmulevitch, who has worked with over a lifetime exploring the capacity we all have to feel and connect.

This is an invitation for you to explore a space where you can experience your true reservoir of power that is your birth right. You will be guided through practices that enable us to reconnect with our instinctive self, so that you can come away with a new insight of well being. You will have time for reflection followed by a short walk to complete your pilgrimage and a group sharing in the Yurt.
