THE AMAZON IS FLOWING NORTH, FLOODING INTO THE SALISH SEA
We live in a technology world. It’s here on this screen.
It’s in our schedules. It’s in our structures.
It separates, simulates and siloes.
It detaches us from others. It has innovated our isolation.
Other cultures defy description and must be lived to be known. Not divided, but together. Not linear, but flowing. Like the Sapara of the Amazon. The Sapara live in the forest world, naku, where there is only one belonging.
5 Days in June
SALT SPRING ISLAND
An exploration of the forest inside
For the past 10 years we have regularly journeyed to the Amazon rainforest to live and learn with the Sapara people. Today they continue to enlighten and instruct us in lasting ways.
Now the Sapara people have asked us to share their insights here in the north, as they dream of uniting our planet and ourselves.
Their practical wisdom can help us get back to balance. This is their hope, and our aim.
For 5 days in June we invite you to explore the ancestral knowledge of the Sapara, and begin to reshape our lives.
