Community presentation from….
Voyage To Motherland
Stella Bellgam will be gracing the stage again and doing a presentation on Voyage To Motherland. Its mission is to embark on a spiritual journey back to our ancestral home in the continent of Africa, the birthplace of the human race via the African DNA, the heaven on Earth. We believe in the spirit of Sankofa (to reach back and get it). In order for us to elevate holistically as beings, it is essential to return from where we came. We seek to master our mind, body and soul through exploration of ancient and alternative practices from people such as the Dogon priests of West Africa and the Bedouin nomads of Egypt. We will be actually tasting the baobab fruit from the tree of life located in countries such as Ghana and seeking powerful herbs such as Moringa that can heal, nourish and connect us to the Earth, the Ether and the Universe.
