THE DISCIPLINES OF NGANGA'S REALITY
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 (Dikenga, N'kisi/medicine, Ndoki, life & death).
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", Lèmba, Khimba (Kinkimba) and Kimpasi. Lèmba is 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:
This retreat is an introduction to the Kôngo initiation system of higher knowing and empowerment. What will follow are learning processes centered on the following topics:
- African cosmology and philosophy among the Kôngo
- How are the Ngânga chosen?
· How does the Ngânga use the instruments of their profession in the arts of divination and healing?
· The Ngânga's concepts of dialogue which transcend dimensional energies, and communicate with the guardians of the directional realms.
· Mayudukwa (collectively accumulated wealth)
· Religion and spirituality expressed through the concepts of Human Being, the Bio-Rope and Bakulu, Nzâmbi)
· The "Receiver" in us
· Rituals/ceremonies and their reasons of being
· Becoming community leader or healer
· The "Dikenga" and its "Vee's" are the secret keys to all learning.
Much more information will be provided on site.
NOTE: It is strongly suggested that participants have a familiarity with Dr. Fu-Kiau's
work with special emphasis on African Cosmology of the Bântu- Kôngo (2001), Sîmba Sîmbi: Hold Up That Which Holds You Up (2006), and Self-Healing Power and Therapy (1991).
