Ubizo, Mental Health & Intergenerational Trauma.

Saturday 3 September 2016 in Jozi

This is the first of the #GogoSpeaks series.

MC: Kgopedi Lilokoe.

I know I've been a Can't-Get-Can't-Tholakala because of The Leadership, but don't mind that. Come through, we've got things to discuss. Plus, there will be snacks.

In Big English, 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 please, put your money where my mouth is.
