Description

THE DISCIPLINES OF NGANGA’S REALITY
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 Bântu-Kôngo cosmology.

Dr. Fu-Kiau is one of the most distinguished and insightful scholars of African culture. Born in Maniânga, Congo; he was educated in both Western and African systems of thought. He is initiated into three major traditional “secret societies” with Lèmba 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:
• The Palo Mayombe in Cuba,
• The Candomble Angola in Brazil,
• The Garifuna of Honduras,
• The Congo of Loisa Aldea of Puerto Rico
just to mention a few.

This retreat is an introduction to the Kôngo initiation system of higher knowing and empowerment.
• African cosmology and philosophy among the Kôngo
• How are the Ngânga chosen?
• Religion and spirituality expressed through the concepts of Human Being and the Bio-Rope
• The “Receiver” in us
• Becoming community leader or healer
Much more information will be provided on site.
