Location Part 1, for the main gathering: Oca Yary

POVO GUARANI | Toda a crença dos guaranis é baseada nos elementos da natureza e na busca de conexão dos seres humanos com ela. “A educação indígena aprende com a natureza, com as estrelas, todos os universos. Somos uma estrela também, parte da natureza”, diz o pajé Geraldo Karai Okenda.

Translation: All of the beliefs of the Guarani people are based on the elements of nature and the search for connection of us humans with mother nature. “Indigenous education learns with nature, with the stars, with all of of the universe. We are stars as well, part of nature”, says chief Geraldo Karai Okenda.

Part 1  – Oca Yary

 

“My vision for Oca Yary is to bring back to life ancestral wisdom, to give voice to native people, to listen to and to reconnect.” – Giovanna, caretaker of Oca Yary

‘Giovanna’s land is called Yary. Beautiful wild fertile lands in the heart of the Atlantic rainforest in Bahia, called the Mata Atlantica, home to all of the native wildlife. With a river and waterfall flowing through the land it is home to so much life.

We will be sleeping in an Oca (pictured below) built by representatives of the people of the Kamayura and Xingu, with their traditional architecture. The experience of sleeping together in a collective oca, in a hammock brings many dreams & helps us remember our ancestry, a new experience for most people.’

This will be a profound ‘back to the earth’ experience, sleeping in hammocks + camping options. Sleeping suspended will allow for collective dream practices to take place.

Location Part 2, post-gathering retreat: Paraiso Verde

“My mama and I are so honored to have part 2 of Soul Seed Gathering at our home in Brazil, Paraiso Verde. This is very special land to us, it has been in our family over 30 years now and always provides a bounty of healing. For me in particular it’s been an incredible place of replenishing myself when I am seeking exactly that.”

– Malia, Chapter 3 support, connection to Brazil & caretaker of Paraiso Verde

.

The land stands next to the fresh water of the Sargi River flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. This creates such a powerful giving and receiving, quite literally of the mother and the daughter.  The daughter Oxum flows into the mother Yemanja.

.

‘My mother has moved back there full time almost two years ago and the land is buzzing with an apiary and permaculture plantings. Everything is done with utmost care for the land, as sustainable as possible; solar energy. biodegradable materials etc.’
