Huni Kuin ‘Centre of Memory’ Fundraiser Project
Some friends of ours have initiated a crowd funder campaign which we would love to support. The campaign is raising funds for an amazing project which involves the carrying out of essential work and upgrades to the infrastructure of a Huni Kuin village called São Joaquim (also know as Centro de Memoria / Centre of Memory).
The Huni Kuin are an indigenous tribe who live in the Amazon Rainforest. They have been under threat and have managed to survive often against great adversity, upholding their ancient traditions and deep connection to nature. In recent years, to continue to raise awareness of the urgency of the situation and to share their innate wisdom and knowledge of the forest, a number of Huni Kuin spiritual leaders have begun to travel around the world.
‘Centre of Memory’ Crowd Funder www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/sia-huni-kuin-crowdfunder
We are inviting participants of the EDB Spring Gathering to make donations to support this crowd funder campaign. You can choose to make a donation and how much when purchasing your ticket.

By purchasing a ticket to this event, you agree to respect and follow the Invitation, Intention and Guidelines for this event:
Discover and be your uniqueness.
Connect with and be your authentic self.
Practice self-awareness, self-empowerment and self-expression.
Take responsibility for yourself, your belongings and your wellbeing.
Please ask a Space Angel at the event if you need support or help with anything.
Please follow our guidelines so we can create a safe, held and sacred space for ourselves and each other:
- Be here: no outside shoes
- Be free: dance how you want / no judgement
- Be present: no phones / cameras
- Be embodied: no talking
- Be clear: no alcohol
- Be consensual: respect & honour boundaries of others. If it's not a clear yes, it's a no
- Respect yourself. Respect each other. Respect personal space of others.
- Respect the venue. Respect the neighbourhood. Respect the land.
Whatever is moving within you; your light, your shadow and other aspects of self; it is all welcome to be transmuted on the dancefloor.
In the words of Gabrielle Roth, “Sweat your prayers, dance your pain” and let it move through you.
When we invite in prayer using our body, it can become our wisest teacher, showing us how to dance our innermost expression of life and soul; and revealing to us it's divine intelligence.
Let us honour the dance of the divine mystery of life.
