The Common Wild Tongue

With Patrick Jasper Lee

Is there a language that exists in the natural world that we as humans have forgotten? Is it possible that the world speaks and it is only us that can no longer hear? In this free event we talk with Romani Gypsy Patrick Jasper Lee about the old understandings of the common wild tongue and how we might begin to understand it again.

Patrick Jasper Lee

Jasper is an author and song-writer and teacher working with his family’s Romani Gypsy roots to educate on the folklore, mythology and practices of the Romani people. This is an ancient tradition of these lands, the British Isles, that was intimately connected with nature. As a ‘chovihano’ (medicine man) in a culture that is now sadly dying out, it is his passion to pass on the earth-based understandings of his people, in an authentic way. “I have learned that drawing off the original template Earth gave to humans thousands of years ago, with its necessary values, is the only means of surviving modern life” he says. “Feelings of not belonging are now rife in society. I therefore promote my own culture as a means of connecting with Earth and each other”.
