Bring Arhuaco & Kogi to Mt. Shasta

The indigenous of the Sierra Nevada live in service to nature. Caring for our mother is their focus, their mission and their reason for living. I've been with them twice in Colombia, in the “heart of the world”. If there's an ideal garden or a paradise at the end of the rainbow, they live in it.

They’re worried about us. Not because we don't have enough money, but because we don't have enough spirit. We've forgotten how to talk to nature, how to do our part to nurture and care for her so she can care for us.

The first time I visited the Sierra Nevada, in December 2016, a Kogi elder spoke about how the Kogi and Arhuaco have taken care of the planet for thousands of years. It's getting harder, he said, and they need our help. We need to nurture the environment around us for our own sake and the sake of the planet, and they want to show us how. I told them I live near Mount Shasta. They knew where it was – they know all the planet’s sacred centers. I said I was willing to help. My offer was received, and they said they'd meditate on how we could move forward together.

When I returned in March 2017 I was told that a Mamo and a Zaga would come to Mount Shasta to feed and clean her energy and show us how to resonate with her strong vibration for reciprocal healing. The community met in council and it was decided that Kogi Mamo Arregoces Coronado, Arhuaco Zaga Judith Torres and Arhuaco Mamo Felix Torres would come. They will be joined by their translator, Kandy Maku, and their Western representative, Vilma Galindo.

This is a very special, precious and unprecedented opportunity to participate in a deeply restorative event for one of the earth's main power centers.

Will you help bring the Arhuaco and Kogi Shamans to Mount Shasta? Would you like to participate in the healing? A contribution in any amount will help fund this unprecedented win-win and every benefactor will receive a share of the energetic blessing that our work together creates.

It will cost $7,450 will get everyone here, lodge them and feed them so they can work with us to help reactivate the energy of our sacred mountain and give back the nurturing energy she has freely and generously given to us. The total includes a $1,000 donation to help the Arhuaco liberate the territory that is being encroached upon at the base of the Sierra Nevada. Since legal efforts to protect the heart of the world have become increasingly difficult over the last several decades, the indigenous have decided that their best option is to buy back the land that the government has decided to sell.

The Kogi, Arhuaco and other indigenous of the Sierra Nevada held their own for centuries against the European invasions that decimated indigenous cultures worldwide. They have maintained their ability to keep the heart of the world safe for millennia. Though it’s getting harder and harder for them to do so, imagine for a moment a culture that's succeeded in nonviolently protecting Mother Nature for thousands of years. They are the essence of the spiritual warrior and act as mediators between nature and those who actively destroy her for personal gain by helping maintain the balance between the earth and her inhabitants.

Imagine being more peaceful than you've ever been, full of strength and vitality and able to share pure life force with a sacred mountain, and you have a glimpse of what it’s like to have the honor of working with them. Even if you can't join us, your contribution will energize your spirit. Will you take this opportunity to give back to our mother and get more in return than you can imagine or I can describe here?

Thank you so much.

Love,
Mamo Seiwyn, Mama Zarkawia, Kandy Maku, Vilma Galindo and Mary Gaetjens
