Spirit of Ndanifor – Mindfulness Practice from the Bafut People

Highlights from this session:

Joshua Konkankoh introduces you to a beautiful mindfulness practice of the Bafut people. This modern and shortened version of the Spirit of Ndanifor practice has been developed by the collective memory of a global learning culture using ecovillage principles and indigenous ancestral wisdom for community leadership and seeking inspiration for future generations. It aims to support youth in the transition to adulthood by initiating a mindset shift towards a new consciousness, bringing about freedom from materialism and reintegration into the traditional ways of counselling.
