by K. Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau, Ph.D
In this retreat Dr. Fu-Kiau will present traditional central African key concepts and philosophy based on the BÃ¢ntu-KÃ´ngo cosmology.
Dr. Fu-Kiau is one of the most distinguished and insightful scholars of African culture. Born in ManiÃ¢nga, Congo; he was educated in both Western and African systems of thought. He is initiated into three major traditional â€œsecret societiesâ€ with LÃ¨mba as one of particular relevance because of the numerous African-based religions and practices derived from it here in the Americas. It influences the indigenous oriented worldview of:
â€¢ The Palo Mayombe in Cuba,
â€¢ The Candomble Angola in Brazil,
â€¢ The Garifuna of Honduras,
â€¢ The Congo of Loisa Aldea of Puerto Rico
just to mention a few.
This retreat is an introduction to the KÃ´ngo initiation system of higher knowing and empowerment.
â€¢ African cosmology and philosophy among the KÃ´ngo
â€¢ How are the NgÃ¢nga chosen?
â€¢ Religion and spirituality expressed through the concepts of Human Being and the Bio-Rope
â€¢ The â€œReceiverâ€ in us
â€¢ Becoming community leader or healer
