Singing the Sun into the Sky: Earth Talk with Colin Campbell

Singing the Sun into the Sky

Falling into Soul and Raising Spirit In contemporary life

“At first we cannot see beyond the path that leads downward to dark and hateful things but no light or beauty will ever come from the man who cannot bear this sight. Light is always born of darkness, and the sun never yet stood still in heaven to satisfy man's longing or to still his fears.”― C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul

Is there a treatment in these times for loss of soul and severance from spirit?  Are we even ill?  Should such notions as soul and spirit be considered worthy of a place amid the pragmatics of daily life in a world fuelled by the glitter and promise of all that is "modern"?  If so then how do we begin the healing of these parts of our communities and ourselves?

Join Colin Campbell for a talk exploring these questions with a focus on the role of sacred ritual in modern industrialised life.

Colin Campbell grew up in rural southeastern Botswana, the son of a renowned anthropologist and a creative healing mother. He is currently a practitioner of traditional African medicine, based in Cape Town, South Africa and the UK. He receives clients from all over the world, and facilitates international group processes relating to natural law, transformation, healing & personal power, sacred sites, and cross-cultural cosmology.

His work bridges major world cities with ancestral homelands and forgotten wilderness, taking him from the Amazon Basin to Los Angeles, the sacred sites of Venda to the urban grit of Johannesburg, and remote Ethiopia to the City of London. Colin co-founded and co-runs a training school in Botswana for traditional doctors and sangomas with his brother Niall Campbell. He is also a lifelong artist and musician, his style once again bridging the traditional with the contemporary, the timeless with the timely, and the sounds of the sacred with the lyricism of electric rocking funk.
