#GogoSpeaksDBN
Ubizo, Mental Health & Intergenerational Trauma.

Friday 9 September 2016 in Durban

This is for oHome-Slice. Don't ever say I've been swallowed by iGoli, I still feel you and I am coming to you.

I roll heavy this time, with KwaMuhle Museum and The Institute of Afrikology in my corner. They are making this all possible.

The topic for the evening:
Ubizo, Mental Health and Intergenerational Trauma.

Nge Speakit, isingisi esikhulu,
the talk aims to:
  • Highlight where ubizo (ancestral/creative/spiritual calling) intersects and diverges with symptoms of some mental illnesses.
  • Explore a map of the beliefs and cosmologies of iSintu* and how they affect people’s worldviews regarding mental and physical health.
  • Decode the lexicon of dreams, “witchcraft” and other supernatural phenomena to understand spiritual, emotional and mental distress and trauma.

Isintu* - Systems of beliefs, views and practices that are indigenous to the people and cultures of our land.

My Grancestors and I are ready to take your phethinent kweshins, so bring your thinking caps…and your dancing shoes because Mashayabhuqe kaMamba and Nomvula Munnie will be there for the Likers.

MC: Ashantewaa Archer-Ngidi
