About the speaker

Ancient cultures and indigenous people created songs, poems and rituals to pass on information about the wonders of life to each generation. They lived in balance with nature, gave offerings and scheduled day-to-day life in line with the rhythm of nature. Can we, modern people who live our lives in cities and mostly connected to our devices, benefit from ancient rituals? Is there still a way to connect with our roots and live in rhythm of nature?
