PREMIERE SCREENING OF OUR SHORT FILM:

“The wisdom keepers of the Amazon - meet the Yawanawa tribe”

AND MUSIC CONCERT BY KURU YAWANAWA

We are beyond excited to invite you to this fund raising event of the Floresta Association.

A non profit organziation with its aim to protect and conserve the Amazon as well as the indigenous tribes that live there.

——————————————————

Many of us had the life changing gift of experiencing the gifts of the Amazon first hand.

Some of us even had the opportunity to travel deep into the jungle and experience the true magic that still remains there hidden in its true magic.

Now it’s time to give back.

To come together as tribe so we can give back to those who help us become who we are today.

The wise ones.

The elders.

The wisdom keepers.

To protect their habitat, the lungs of our planet, and wisdom they’ve been looking after since the beginning of time that now they’re sharing with us so openly.

Working close with the Yawanawa tribe in Brazil this evening is dedicated to share music, sacred space, and heart connections so we can support the village of Mutum to build a spiritual community centre called a “Shuhu”

The Shuhu is their traditional housing that they all used to live in as one big community long before the white people came and traditions changed drastically.

For the Yawanawa their spirituality is what everything else is built on. It's their foundation of life that has been taken away for many years while the rubber tappers and the missionaries took over their villages.

It is only now that they come back to their full strength, reintegrating spirituality into their every day life and teaching the younger generations the wisdom their elders carried throughout the most challenging times.

Almost lost it is this wisdom about the healing plants of the Amazon, the sacred songs, their traditional language and their natural way of living in harmony with nature, that is so important to be maintained and passed on to future generations.

For the Yawanawa to regain their strength as a community they're in need of a place where they can come together and gather... Where they can share their culture and wisdom with the younger generations as well as the people who come there to experience deep healing and connection with themselves.

All proceeds are going towards this project of the Floresta Association.

WHO ARE WE?

The Floresta Association is a Non Profit Organization that dedicated it’s mission to protect and conserve the Amazon as well as the indigenous tribes that live there.

To preserve their culture and supporting them to connect with their roots once again.

Through different projects we make sure that the rainforest gets treated with utter most care so that these people can thrive living a sustainable life in harmony with their habitat.

​While supporting the Amazon and those tribes with clean water, food, waste management, infrastructure and any other needs they have, we also focus on keeping their culture alive and sharing it with the world.

In cooperating with the leaders as well as every single person from the tribe we are excited to be building a cultural healing centre that can be used by the tribe to teach generations to come their traditional language, their immense wisdom about alternative plant medicine, as well as ancient healing techniques. Not only is this centre’s mission to persevere the culture, furthermore it’s intention is to share it with the western world as well.

​So together we can utilize the best of the ancient wisdom with the latest modern science and research to bring humanity forward, thriving and evolving into a harmonious world of balance, peace, and freedom.
