Have you ever watched any of the amazing Youtube videos of Bradford Keeney? (check them out!)
Wild Shamanism is the "antidote" to the human zoo! And be prepared. It's reverently irreverent! Smile!So, for your healthy spiritual "rewilding", please let this new Bradford Keeney video immerse you. It is guaranteed to pull you right out of the human zoo, and "zoo thinking". (Btw, THINK OUTSIDE THE ZOO at every turn!)
(as it should, it gets progressively wilder, especially at the very end. It's by the modern "anti-pope" of Wild Shamanism: Dr. Bradford Keeney --yet he didn't do the imagery. I felt some of the Pope stuff was insensitive)
"!Gai tses , !Gaia an tsi sa, Gaxa re" – "Hello, Pleased to know you, Come in!"
Come in to AVATAR: The Aboriginal Ecstatic Dance Healing of Wild Shamanism. Through it's beautiful metaphor, the movie classic AVATAR depicts, most powerfully, the "original human spiritual impulse" that is the basis of our meetup group. This impulse manifests as the "healing ecstatic drum-dance rituals" of the gentle African Bushpeople, scientifically established as the "mother tribe of humanity":
[Yet, poignantly, the movie also relates the sad plight of the African Bushmen at the hands of modern "uncivilization" with its material obsessions and greed: while AVATAR, the movie, depicts primitive aliens on another planet being uprooted from their homelands due to the discovery of precious substance "unobtainium", the reality it directly parallels is that of the African Bushmen being uprooted from their homeland upon the discovery of diamonds:
"WILD SHAMANISM" is the term which refers to the trance-dance drum rituals that are the root core of spirituality from the "Human Wild" of Prehistory. To experience and learn the true ritual forms, visit our meetup and immerse yourself in the most powerful healing vibration that has ever existed ---simply because it's he purest of all spiritual expressions ("The Source Waters Are the Purest!")
And now, please, allow the healthy human animal within you to escape from the modern artificial zoo that now surrounds us. Immerse yourself in the original form of Energy Healing through Ecstatic Trance Dance.
Settle back, return to the quiet "Now" of the original forest, and let yourself experience A PREHISTORIC PRAYER FROM THE FIRST SHAMANS TO GOD THE FATHER AND GOD THE MOTHER (modern prayer based on the earliest known of the San Bushman traditions ---also a "primer" for original human spiritual thinking):
OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN, Thou hold the eternal moment’s possibility for Creation. OUR MOTHER, THOU ART CREATION’S FINAL BIRTH-GIVER. Together, You bring forth All That Is.
Your Divine lovemaking moves passionately in joy, breathing life throughout the forest world and spurring on our own arrival as flowers of love and joy. So that we may bear witness to the sublime beauty of all Creation, You offer the rainbow bridge between Earth and Sky as a special gift of continuing love and connection.
PRAISE TO OUR DIVINE PARENTS! Oh Dear GOHA, protect us. As FATHER SKY, You are transcendent to all being. You watch over our most ancient ancestors living with You on high, while watching over the rest of us on the Earth below. Your life-giving waters shower down upon us, making grow the wild plants our gatherers bring home each day for our sustenance. Oh Dear KO, nurture us. As MOTHER EARTH, You are the ground of all being. Shining white like the full Moon and bringing the skill and luck of the hunting Mantis, You rise up from the ground to entrance our hunters. The thrill of Your touch on the arm steadies their aim and, in this way, You deliver us our daily meat. Then, You rouse our drums and make our voices soar as we begin the healing dance.
Praise to You both for assuring that the flow of NUM, the one supreme “source energy”, will continue to nurture us and “everything that is”. In deep reverence, we promise to remain in the forest of our original Eden, forever sharing it with all living things as Your equally loved children.
Help us, in turn, to joyfully honor and love our own children, our parents, all our ancestors who once were, and all the souls yet to be.
With the innocent eyes of a child coming as pure as from the womb, let us stand naked before You. Let us always be as both wise children and as playful elders.
Help us to remain gentle and kind through the guiding light of Your divine goodness. Despite the darkness that sometimes surrounds us, know that DARKNESS IS OF THE FOREST AND SO DARKNESS, TOO, MUST BE GOOD.
THY WILL BE DONE.
LET US BECOME INSTRUMENTS OF YOUR DIVINE MUSIC and, in avoiding all discord, let us assure our instruments remain well tuned.
HEALING MAKES OUR HEARTS HAPPY! Let us feel the Num energy boiling up within us as we sing, dance, and drum in celebration of both Your names. Let us so delight in Your Divine Love that we begin to writhe and shake in the ecstatic joy of KIA. At that moment, the NUM will flow through us and then outwards beyond us, healing our entire tribal family of STAR SICKNESS: a solitary sadness that is the source of all pain and hurt.
Finally, let us fall to the ground in peace and gratitude to begin the sacred dream of CUNKURI.
In these ways, dear FATHER GOHA, keep our thoughts inspired, rising high in the heavenly sky. And, dear MOTHER KO, keep our feelings tender, remaining deeply rooted to the Earth.
